The Intelligent Security Method


Our customers are equipped with advanced tools and timely information to forge a proactive security posture. Dots are collected and analyzed. Threats are revealed. Alerts are issued. Investigations are launched. Partners collaborate. It all happens in advance of a potential incident, not after, and gets our customers “left of boom.”


TRAPWIRE is a comprehensive methodology for detecting threats in the planning stages and producing opportunities to prevent terrorist and criminal events. A security posture focused on prevention requires awareness, knowledge and tools. We provide it all in one centralized, highly secure and encrypted platform that is synchronized with our expert services and award-winning support.



Threat data provides little value if it is not in the hands of the right people at the right time. TRAPWIRE generates instant awareness for those who need to know.


TRAPWIRE data is shaped during input using methodologies developed through decades of real-world law enforcement, anti-terrorism, and intelligence operations experience. The resulting output provides our clients with actionable, timely information on threats facing their personnel and assets.
