Echosec Systems and FutureShield announce official partnership

VICTORIA BC, May 11, 2022

Technology Solutions Provider FutureShield and Echosec Systems have joined forces to deliver industry-leading open-source intelligence software to security and risk management teams worldwide. With Echosec, FutureShield’s customers can improve their visibility into the online threat and risk landscape, understand real-time events as they unfold, and inform critical decision-making.

On-the-ground security risks often begin with online chatter. As new social platforms emerge and fringe networks gain traction, it is increasingly difficult to identify and monitor security threats within the conversations taking place online. 

Echosec solves this problem by delivering streamlined access to this data and allows users to zero in on specific keyword and location-based content for effective prioritization.

Unlike other open-source intelligence software providers, Echosec allows users to pivot seamlessly between dark web marketplaces, social media sites, messaging apps, document repositories, and other online spaces, in just a few clicks. This accessibility in a single platform makes searching, filtering, and analyzing an otherwise overwhelming amount of data fast and effective.

“When I came across Echosec, I realized immediately the value it could bring to FutureShield’s clients,” said Cynthia Weeden, President and Founder of FutureShield Inc. 

“In today’s threat climate, Echosec solves problems for geopolitical risk assessments, crisis monitoring, misinformation and disinformation monitoring, counter-terrorism, criminal investigation, cybersecurity, and executive and brand protection. I believe this open-source intelligence tool will result in safer critical infrastructure for Canada”

 

“We are very excited about the partnership with FutureShield. Their team has a wealth of expertise in delivering leading-edge software solutions to clients, which is exactly what Echosec aims to do. Our partners are critical to our company’s success and we’re very happy to have the opportunity to market our solution with FutureShield. We look forward to working closely with their team to ensure their clients have access to the critical data they need.”
