Sweden’s NetClean specializes in technologies designed to detect illicit child sexual abuse material on employer-owned laptops and mobile phones. Its software-as-a-service products have been loaded onto more than a million devices by both multinational companies and public sector organizations in 110 countries. Why would anyone store such material on their company device? A work computer is the most private device people own. Often the material is downloaded from the Dark Web onto USB keys and viewed on employer-owned devices so family members can’t stumble across it. Employees wrongly assume that if they don’t download it on their work device and simply store it there the company will never know. “We don’t care what network was used to download the material as soon as it is consumed on a company computer we can detect it,” says NetClean CEO Anna Borgström.
