Illicit actors don’t organize their operations on the blockchain. Instead, they use the Deep and Dark Web–including chat services like Telegram and Discord–as their base for promoting, planning, and organizing operations. This is where Cloudburst steps in as a key player to aid in foreseeing, investigating, and safeguarding against unfavorable and dangerous incidents.
Cloudburst tools offer the ability to track and identify threat actors without relying on anonymous wallet addresses, which are typically used in crypto transactions.
The Cloudburst toolset allows for a beyond-the-horizon view of illicit activities, enabling regulatory bodies and investigators to delve beneath the surface and pinpoint the individuals or groups behind fraudulent transactions. This approach helps identify the culprits and also assists in the proactive anticipation of possible future fraudulent events.
Leveraging Cloudburst's advanced and powerful set of tools, investigators effectively monitor the crypto landscape, tracing transactions and detecting signs of illicit behavior, all while moving away from the traditional dependence on anonymous wallet addresses. This enhanced level of understanding and anticipation empowers a stronger line of defense against ever-evolving threats.
Cloudburst gathers publicly available chat and web post data in real-time, presenting this valuable information to its customers through a user-friendly API. Data sources include notoriously difficult platforms to scrape at scale, like Telegram and Discord.
This innovative API goes beyond simple data collection; it automates the enrichment of metadata and the scoring of online communities. In addition, it generates indicators of potential effectiveness, powered by sophisticated algorithms conceived by a dedicated data science team. Cloudburst's systems have been designed with an "investigator-first" approach, readily facilitating the addition of new chat sources, integration points, and customizable output formats. Moreover, the API allows for a high degree of customization in queries, allowing users to filter by identifying factors such as partial phone numbers, email addresses, cryptocurrency wallet addresses, geographic locations, and even life patterns.
Notably, Cloudburst does not depend on manual analyst input. Instead, we automate the process of data collection, categorization, and scoring. This offers clients a real-time window into potential unlawful activities, thereby expanding the potential reach of their investigations. As such, Cloudburst is an indispensable tool in the arsenal of any organization that needs to stay one step ahead in the constantly shifting landscape of online behavior.
