    Any entities with possible connections 1,2,3, or nth degree away from a known bad actor will be shown as a path to a bad actor. If you see the BADaaS logo on the card, it indicates a path to a bad actor exists.

  • What can I search for?

    Our Google-like search feature can search on Entity Name, Company Name, or Address. BADaaS will search across company registrars, offshore leaks, and known Sanctions lists.

    For more enhanced searches, you can combine entity names, company names, and address information

    Example: "Jeff Bezos" Amazon
