The partnership will leverage PeakMetrics’ machine learning capabilities in mining and assessing billions of cross-channel online data points with Reality Defender’s deepfake detection technology to offer a new joint solution that is claimed to offer unparalleled protection for brands and executives against fraud, scams and impersonation on a macro data level.

The joint solution is designed to alert organizations to deepfakes circulating online and in the deep web through an intelligence feed that contextualizes the narratives surrounding the deceptive media. Using deepfake detection technology, Reality Defender identifies manipulated content in real time as it emerges across social media, news and the deep web, allowing organizations to respond to potential threats, while PeakMetrics’ narrative analysis offers strategic insights into how deepfakes could affect reputation and perception.
