Products and Services

Hacking Team provides a Remote Control System (RCS) that is designed to evade encryption through use of an agent that is installed onto the device to monitor. Evidence collection by law enforcement and intelligence officials can then be collected on the monitoring device through stealth means and transmission of the collected data from the device to the RCS server is encrypted and untraceable. The Hacking Team sells only to government agencies and has strict policies intended to control misuse of their product by unauthorized individuals. The system can be deployed on Windows, Apple, BlackBerry, and other technologies. It can be managed from a single interface and can monitor from a few up to a hundred different targets.
