Why does your organization require OSINT services?
What is OSINT used for in practice? The short answer is: to stay ahead of the competitors. Information obtained in time gives you significant (!) advantages when making important business decisions.
The long answer is that OSINT intelligence is a universal tool for business development. Let us give you a few real examples that will demonstrate the possibilities of open-source intelligence gathering. In all of these examples, Molfar's clients gained a competitive advantage that preserved and increased their profits.
- The competitors lost a large order, and Molfar's client got it instead. We found and verified the contacts of the decision-makers in the company that was choosing its contractors. After that, managers of Molfar’s client contacted the company's representatives directly, held a presentation, offered a discount, and thus received the order. These are the results of successful work by Molfar analysts.
- Molfar's client managed to avoid loosing millions of dollars. OSINT acts like a flashlight that shines into the dark corners of your company. In this case, we investigated each of the 30 people in the company's top management to find out which of them was collaborating with our client's competitors. We found two of them: based on OSINT collection process and, to be more specific, social media analysis, we confirmed that they visited the competitors' offices. This way, we prevented the loss of production technologies that could have caused losing tens of millions of dollars by Molfar's client. There were two phases in open-source intelligence. At the second stage, we investigated 2,800 rank-and-file employees and made recommendations on how to terminate cooperation with people with criminal records, far-right views (too far) and other critical vulnerabilities, including reputational, that were not identified at the interview stage. So, Molfar saved the day again.
- Thanks to Molfar's open-source intelligence services, the company added two specialists to its board of directors, who quickly raised $20 million in investment. It was a crypto trading company with a big name that we won't mention. There were 20 candidates for the board of directors, but we selected them in three stages. What is necessary for OSINT in this case? Investigation services require expertise. That's why at each stage we engaged researchers with different areas of expertise: crypto trading, financial management, and law. Interestingly, one of the 20 candidates turned out to be a fraudster with an unfinished court case. Thus, a well-timed intelligence report enabled Molfar's client to make the right choice based on clear facts and information.
Intelligence is not a panacea for mistakes, but a powerful tool for business development. If you are interested in examples of Molfar's work, please contact us, and we will be happy to provide you with detailed cases as close as possible to your request.
