We are grateful to all the partners and judges who recognized the value of our work."
Osavul's software suite uses advanced algorithms and machine learning techniques to analyze patterns of behavior across multiple online media accounts, helping governments and companies to identify and counteract coordinated inauthentic behavior. This technology is particularly relevant in today's world, where social media platforms are being increasingly used to spread disinformation and influence public opinion. The CIB suite will be integrated into Osavul’s CommSecure platform and will become part of the company’s offering.
