Network Architecture 

Welcome to ShadowBrand.ai, where your security and privacy are our utmost priority. When building our platform, we've meticulously integrated robust security features into every layer of our infrastructure. Our use of Cloudflare allows us to leverage its exceptional Content Delivery Network and Web Application Firewall.

To ensure no part of our platform is directly exposed to the Internet, we've established an encrypted proxied SSL pipe between Cloudflare and our platform. Additionally, our entire infrastructure is safely nestled within a private network.

To further bolster security, our microservices communicate through Mutual TLS, strengthening the overall communication safety. Meanwhile, our utilization of multiple Amazon Aurora MySQL databases, with role-based access that requires no username or password, is a testament to our commitment to your privacy.

Using Amazon Data Lake House, we've constructed a Data Intelligence Platform of unparalleled capacity. A crucial component of our technology is our Ingestion API and scanning processes. They acquire and analyze multifarious data from the Darkweb, subsequently generating risk scores based on our finely-tuned models. At ShadowBrand.ai, we transform complex data into meaningful insights to secure your digital world.
