Silobreaker Releases Mobile App for Silobreaker Premium
Silobreaker announced the release of its mobile app for subscribers of Silobreaker Premium, the online intelligence tool for cybersecurity, competitive intelligence, incident management, risk analysis, and government/military OSINT. With the app, subscribers get full access to their Silobreaker Premium setups, including features such as dashboards, watch lists, and document collections.
In addition, an app user can do the following:
- Monitor "who" or "what" is trending by Heat indicators
- Share findings with colleagues directly from the app
- Receive and read documents uploaded by colleagues
- Quickly skim search results and navigate to source publications
- Swipe to read the next article in a search result without leaving browser view

“The Silobreaker App is our latest feature to support the workflow of our customers,” said Silobreaker CEO Kristofer Mansson. “While collecting and analyzing content remain the core tasks for our users, being able to push findings quickly to management or colleagues in the field is often equally important. The app is an effective and rapid distribution channel between analysts and decision makers, as well as an exceptional tool outright for our mobile users.”
Initially, the Silobreaker App will be available for iOS and Windows Phone devices, followed shortly by the release of a version for Android-based phones and tablets. The app will be available free in the Apple App Store and Windows Marketplace from early May 2013.
