Business-Level Assurance Diagnostic Engine (BLADE)
In a rapidly evolving Cyber landscape, Templar BLADE is designed to enable Boards and business leaders to stay ahead of the game; Templar BLADE (Business-Level Assurance Diagnostic Engine) is a unique data mining intelligence service that identifies threats and provides information insights on your business.
Templar BLADE allows you to obtain actionable intelligence from the internet including the darknet, social media and other online sources in order to mitigate against known and unknown risks – providing that special information advantage to help future-proof your business.
Templar BLADE constantly scans hundreds of thousands of public web sources, including news publications, high-calibre blogs, social media platforms, financial databases, government websites and much, much more. Dark web resources and memberships are used to search and analyse elements of the web not normally accessible to the commercial world, exposing darknet activities such as illicit trade in intellectual property and scams that can cause unprecedented harm to an organisation – often without them being aware of the exposure.
Our market-leading service helps combat this threat and provides customised data sets and valuable data mining through real-time alerts and regular reporting specific to the needs of your business. Templar BLADE has a flexible architecture that can map information simply, across networks and organisations, identifying people, brands, opinions, sentiments, products and services from across the internet.

Case Study: global software company optimises its business and reduces risk through Templar BLADE
Templar BLADE was recently deployed in support of a multi-national software provider. Scans were conducted of the darknet and open web and covered a range of targets including social media sites, blogs, websites and online marketplaces. Analysis by Templar swiftly highlighted significant findings including the sale of pirated and potentially modified copies of the company’s flagship products on the darkweb, in addition to posts and articles that linked the company’s name and information with pornographic websites.
Armed with this information, the software company has been able to take effective steps to reduce risks to its reputation through association with 3rd party websites. Templar was also able to advise on the appropriate course of action both to reduce the immediate risk of pirated software being found on the dark web and deployed, and then develop a strategy to manage the reputational and financial impacts for the company in the longer term.
