Your trusted resource for privacy analysis of network traffic


Even when you're not using your devices actively, they make connections to web services across the globe - sending and receiving data. We help you find out what is being sent and to where.

Users have the right to protect their data and to keep it private from big corporations’ connections.


Your devices live in a connected world. Every day, they send and receive thousands of packets, working in the background, even when you are not actively using them. Although most of the traffic is for practical reasons, such as keeping your software up-to-date or checking validity of certificates, some of the traffic is specifically designed to collect data about you, your devices and how you use your devices. What’s worse is that most of these connections are encrypted, which means it is almost impossible to investigate what is actually being sent or received.

If you or your organization is concerned about privacy, or have mandates for data location and sovereignty, we can help you understand:

  • Where do they go? To which organization? To which country?
  • What data do they contain?
  • We have ten years’ experience of analyzing networks for security and privacy threats. We test meticulously and we report honestly.

We can help you to attain Zero Exhaust:

  • Testing and certifying your systems for zero exhaust
  • Providing monitoring tools
