What is Silo Shield?

At Authentic8, our Silo for Research platform has been safeguarding the online research efforts of the world’s most vulnerable organizations for over a decade. We are committed to broadening our support, ensuring that even those with limited resources can also stand protected in performing crucial work.

“Silo Shield’' is our commitment to support high-risk communities who may be targeted by adversaries due to the nature of their work. This program offers our sophisticated Silo for Research platform to provide safe, secure, and anonymous internet access for those who qualify — including journalists, academics, and humanitarian workers.

This initiative supports crucial global research by protecting under-resourced users from digital threats through the Silo for Research platform while providing web access in-region. This program aims to make critical online work risk-free, supporting journalists, humanitarian works, and nonprofits in their efforts to foster transparency, justice, and equality worldwide.
