Service

New Knowledge’s services are provided through its software, which provides three stages in defending its users against disinformation campaigns: detect, monitor, and mitigate. On the detect stage, the platform would inform the user when patterns of online behaviors indicating malicious campaign efforts start to emerge. During the monitor stage, users can keep track of the current status of the identified campaign, and by the mitigate stage, choose to intervene to stop the campaign from spreading further. New Knowledge’s current customer base is dominated by businesses operating in the private sector, such as the entertainment industry.
