Research shows that most organizations implement DIY solutions or cocktails of discrete technologies to get analysts online. Silo for Research is a cloud-delivered platform that puts your team on the web in seconds — without added infrastructure or any other up-front investments. Analysts access a virtual environment that gives them full-fidelity access to the web without the risk.
Investigating cyberthreats puts your team in contact with toxic content and malicious actors. Because Silo for Research executes in the cloud, so your environment is never exposed, and your identity is never revealed. All rendered content, all executable code, all access requests to sites and all collections are performed by Silo, with your analysts interacting only with a benign remote display.
Research platforms typically require exceptions to IT policies or live outside of IT control. Silo for Research provides a single, central point of policy enforcement and oversight. Policies are defined in an admin console, and all analyst actions are logged and encrypted via customer-managed keys. APIs allow you to extract encrypted audit logs for internal analysis or to respond to information requests.
Threat researchers need to preserve anonymity and security of systems at all costs. Silo for Research is an on-demand, one-time-use platform for accessing the web. No code ever reaches the endpoint, and no attributes associated with the organization, the endpoint or the individual analyst ever leak to the web.
Silo for Research integrates analysis and capture tools in a single, isolated, cloud-based container. Whether analyzing packets, reviewing source code and web linkages, rendering an object file or grabbing an exploit, researchers get a native experience without getting their hands dirty.
Silo for Research gives you remote control storage tools for migrating content across web properties. Perform native-like file manipulations without exposing your system and flatten files into benign documents for broader review.
Silo Secure Storage, an encrypted cloud-based file repository, integrates seamlessly with any analyst’s workflow. All content is stored offsite, preventing exploit or attribution to your organization, and all file permissions and operations are governed by admin policy.
Analysts need to hide in plain sight. And data collections aren’t always passive; sometimes researchers may need to access forums or interact with parties outside their organization. Silo for Research can execute in dozens of geographies around the world, showing a local IP that never refers back to your organization, and a user agent configured to fit the scenario. Multiple environments can be launched, with analysts having a single integrated windowing environment to move between investigations.
