Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD) Search?
An EDD search is a SafetyNet search on a subject-of-interest that includes scanning the internet at large (Surface and Deep web) in real-time. EDD searches performed with SafetyNet EDD Enterprise also includes results found within an organization’s local files and databases.
Why should I perform an EDD search?
An EDD search helps an end-user to ensure that data on a subject-of-interest that may not be included on Sanction Lists & PEP Lists are taken into consideration. It also increases the probability that an end-user has the most up-to-date information on a subject-of-interest.
How can I fine-tune my EDD searches articles?
In addition to the subject-of-interest’s name (or term), up to 5 Keywords can be added to an EDD search, which helps to refine the results. Some results can be sorted on specific criteria, which further helps the end-user to identify key information quickly.

It contains one of the largest databases of global sanctions lists, with millions of names of high-risk entities, politically exposed persons (PEPs), and persons in public life (PIPs). JAIE, our artificial intelligence engine harnesses the combined power of tens of Billions of dollars in research & development in artificial intelligence and cognitive computing from IBM Watson, Amazon, Google, and Microsoft, to perform enhanced due diligence checks on subjects-of-interests the way human experts do, but at much faster speeds. It exposes patterns, connections, and insights around subjects-of-interest at a depth and speed no human expert can achieve on their own.

It is a cloud-based Enhanced Due Diligence Cognitive Search tool that searches over 1,800 global Sanctions and Person-In-Public-Life lists, with over 5M names (and growing).

It is a cloud-based Enhanced Due Diligence Cognitive Search that utilizes billions of dollars of research and development in Artificial Intelligence from IBM Watson, Amazon, Google, and Microsoft to create a Joint Artificial Intelligence Engine (J.A.I.E) that can conduct Enhanced Due Diligence checks at a quality, depth, and speed that exceeds what human experts can ever achieve on their own. Its Artificial Intelligence capabilities allows it to analyze information the way human expert do, but at a speed of hundreds of millions of pages per second. SafetyNet EDD combines the powerful SafetyNet Lite with a state-of-the-art multilingual cognitive search engine, that scans the internet in real-time, at a global and local levels looking for:

    It is a hybrid cloud-based enhanced due diligence cognitive search and investigative tool designed specifically for law enforcement and military purposes. It combines SafetyNet EDD Enterprise with the state-of-the-art Facial Search and Visualize Connections tools. Facial Search is a reverse facial search tool that can receive an unidentified image of a person and with a high degree of accuracy locate the person within an image database. Visualize Connections is a cognitive link analysis tool that can graphically display the connections surrounding a subject-of-interest from information found within structured and unstructured data.

    It gives companies the ability to monitor tens, hundreds, thousands, and even hundreds of thousands of data subjects simultaneously for risk and have that information delivered directly to 3rd party applications. SafetyNet Developer give organizations direct access to SafetyNet EDD via simple, but powerful APIs, which gives companies the ability to have around-the-clock enhanced due diligence monitoring of their entire client base.
