The partnership, which is already under way, will see PwC Intelligence’s business use Neotas’ open source intelligence (OSINT) technology to identify, assess and report on financial, regulatory, compliance and reputational risks posed by third parties. .
Combining PwC’s strengths and expertise with the innovative specialized technology developed by Neotas will enable PwC to tackle major financial crimes and third-party risk challenges.
“Global corporate giant PwC will fight the rise in financial crime and third-party risk by partnering with state-of-the-art startup Neotas for due diligence.
With regulators enforcing the adoption and integration of open source technology as best practice, PwC’s partnership with Neotas underscores their commitment to adopting a more proactive risk management model and providing the best OSINT capabilities to its customers.
The Neotas platform will enable the RADAR PWC Integrity Verification Service to scale to address new risk areas, including ESG, financial solvency, social media and more from a single centralized platform.
The inclusion of a centralized platform will bring significant operational efficiencies. Analysts can expect to save up to 70% of research time alone, while data will be analyzed in over 200 languages.
The change will allow PwC analysts to maximize their focus on risk analysis, while ensuring consistency and complete auditability.

Our collaboration with Neotas will improve the comprehensiveness, speed and consistency of our due diligence and the provision of open source intelligence services to our customers.
