The global cybersecurity market size has evolved over the years, growing to become a multi-billion-dollar industry driven by increasing demand from businesses as well as individuals due to the awareness of cyber threats and the sophistication of criminals. A recent Statista report projected the market size to reach $345.4 billion by 2026, with spending on security services, the largest segment of the information security market, hitting $72.5 billion in 2021. Despite the amazing statistics from the market, many of the available products do not address the concerns of customers. However, Hailbytes seeks to change this narrative as substantiated by the release of the Social Scanner API.
The Social Scanner API comes with a wide range of features and functionalities that help users to scan a person’s profile across 996 social media websites using multiple techniques. Features of the scanner include String and name analysis (Permutations and Combinations), multilayers detections, search prioritized by Alexa top-ranking, profile screenshot, title, info, and website description, and multi-threaded scanning workers for rapid results. The tool also enables users to find name origins, name similarity and common words by language, re-check option for failed profiles, and filter profiles by good, maybe, and bad.
The OSINT tool aids the investigation of profiles related to suspicious or malicious activities, including cyberbullying, cybergrooming, cyberstalking, and spreading misinformation. The tool is versatile and can be used across industries, including financial technology companies trying to expand their KYC processes.
The Social Scanner API is sold as a freemium product that users can try for free on the Rapid API marketplace.
