We prevent, identify, and disrupt malicious activity by rapidly sharing timely, actionable intelligence.

We attribute intelligence to the member who submits it, but anonymize any and all victim and sensitive data.
We require all members to share a minimum amount of intelligence with the alliance to prevent the free-rider problem.
