DigitalXRAID, an award-winning Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP), has signed a partnership agreement with the dark web intelligence company, Searchlight Cyber, to use its products to defend and mitigate cyberattacks emerging from the dark web. Searchlight has already been deployed in DigitalXRAID engagements, including incident response, with dark web intelligence helping to inform the investigation and remediation of cybersecurity incidents, and further prevent cyberattacks for its customers.

DigitalXRAID is a full-service cybersecurity consultancy covering all three pillars of cybersecurity: Offensive, Defensive, and Compliance. Its services include Penetration Testing, ISO 27001 certification, Vulnerability Management, Threat Intelligence, a fully managed Security Operations Centre, and more. Its CREST accredited Security Operations Centre (SOC) operates 24/7/365, with a dedicated team of analysts monitoring customers’ networks, systems, and applications to respond to security events in real-time.

DigitalXRAID partnered with Searchlight after a competitive tender based on the strength of its dark web intelligence, which gives the MSSP’s SOC team greater visibility into the hidden sites where cybercriminals instigate their attacks. The DigitalXRAID SOC is using Searchlight’s extensive dark web dataset - which goes back over 15 years - to enhance the proactive threat protection of its customers, and in one-off engagements such as security audits and incident response. Dark web intelligence has already been used to find malicious traffic going from one organisation to a Command and Control (C2) server hosted on the dark web, plus identify organisations being listed by ransomware groups, such as LockBit and Akira.

DigitalXRAID is also now able to offer dark web monitoring as a standalone service through Searchlight, which meets the requirements of customers that want the ability to continuously search the dark web for external threats to their business.

Scott Goodwin, CTO at DigitalXRAID, said: “DigitalXRAID and Searchlight Cyber share a common mission: to protect organisations from cyberattacks and ensure the bad guys don’t win. Searchlight had by far the most comprehensive dark web dataset of all of the solutions we reviewed in the market, and therefore gives our SOC team the best visibility into threats emerging from the dark web. The ability to spot potential threats on the dark web gives us the best chance to identify and stop cyberattacks against our customers”

Andy Scutt, Channel Manager at Searchlight Cyber, commented: “We’re proud to partner with DigitalXRAID, a MSSP that has a reputation for its forward thinking approach to adopting the latest innovations in cybersecurity into its comprehensive suite of services and solutions. Its latest addition of dark web intelligence will help its SOC team to enhance services including incident response and continuously monitor for threats to the organisations it works with - ultimately increasing the protection of its customer base.”
