Black Market Research

Discover unauthorized and illicit uses of your product and brand on all layers of the web.

Are you aware of the black market activities surrounding your brand and products?


Many fake, smuggled, and illicit versions of products are being sold in different markets. Malicious individuals and organizations tend to use cyber platforms as unofficial sales channels to generate illegal income. This situation not only damages your company's brand value but can also lead to significant financial losses and legal problems.

At My Security Analytics (MySA), we have developed the Black Market Research service to help you prevent your products from being marketed and sold illegally on social media,e-commerce sites, and platforms like the deep & dark web, rather than through official and authorized sales channels.

  • Black Market Research results are compared with official government reports.
