Location-Based Security

Detect and mitigate external security threats that emerge on location based social media with real-time threat intelligence.

What is Location Based Social Media?

Location-based social media is social media content that uses GPS features from device or Place features within the social media application to link content (post, image or video) to a location. Location-based social media enables users to tag any place in the world to give a piece of content location context. Location-based social media also enables users to search and filter content by location in a social media application.

The Value of Location-Based Data for Security Teams

Many organizations struggle with the need to identify and mitigate risk related to specific geographies and places. Location-based social media monitoring provides this important contextual visibility into your organization’s locations, events, assets, and employees. Location-based content offers an opportunity to use this data to augment an organization’s threat detection and physical security controls. Since society has become so centered on social media, it offers organizations an avenue to tap into this valuable public data source and acquire “ground truth” when breaking events occur and the analytics to get insight into what’s happening on the ground. In many cases, location-based content is a faster source of information to a breaking event than breaking news or from the media.
