Recorded Future is an internet technology company founded in 2009, based in Somerville, Massachusetts, United States, and Gothenburg, Sweden, specializing in real-time threat intelligence. Recorded Future organizes the entire web for analysis so information security teams can stay ahead of cyber attacks. In October 2015, Recorded Future announced a program called OMNI that delivers their data to third-party platforms like Splunk, HP ArcSight, IBM QRadar, RSA Archer, and Maltego. Using what they call a "Temporal Analytics Engine," Recorded Future (RF) provides forecasting and analysis tools to help analysts predict future events by scanning sources on the internet, and extracting, measuring, and visualizing the information to show networks and patterns in the past, present, and future. As of 2015[update] the engine was described as "Web Intelligence Engine." Likewise, the Washington Post which had described the company as a predictive analytics web intelligence firm deleted the term upon request of RF. The software analyzes sources and forms "invisible links" between documents to find links that tie them together and may possibly indicate the entities and events involved. Noah Schachtmann from WIRED – who first wrote about Google and the CIA both investing in RF – described the company in an interview as follows: "Recorded Future is a company that strips out from web pages the sort of who, what, when, where, why — sort of who’s involved, [...] where are they going, what kind of events are they going to." Clients initially included the financial sector with quantitative investors, but since 2013 they have changed to businesses seeking cyber security, per Ahlberg, for example SITA (IT company), a global air transport IT company.
Highest paying job titles at Recorded Future include Cyber Threat Intelligence Analyst, Account Executive, and Senior Software Developer
