AUSTIN, March 2, 2021 –– Ontic, the protective intelligence software innovator digitally transforming how companies actively identify, investigate, assess, watch and manage physical security threats, announces a partnership with Giant Oak, a leader in the application of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and big data for the security needs of business and government. By integrating GOST® into the Ontic platform, the company’s Fortune 500 clients have the ability to screen for nefarious acts and threat actors more efficiently and accurately than ever before.

“Companies are in need of a solution that rapidly screens and prioritizes information to identify potential threats to their operations and business at scale,” says Ontic CEO Lukas Quanstrom. “With the addition of GOST, the Ontic platform becomes the most holistic security offering on the market covering access to identity resolution, civil data, criminal records, incarceration and release records, open-source intelligence listening and adverse media monitoring.”

Accessible directly via the Ontic platform, GOST® is a Machine Learning-based platform that builds custom internet domains and organizes information to detect suspicious behaviors. GOST® re-indexes the open and deep webs to return publicly available electronic information (PAEI) prioritized to meet user requirements.

“Corporations spend far too much time manually searching and combing through the results,” said Gary M. Shiffman, PhD, founder and CEO of Giant Oak. “With GOST on the Ontic platform, people now have a powerful, Machine-Learning based tool to easily search and identify the most important information on the right people.”
