Searchlight Security appointed Eric Milam as their new Executive Vice President of Product. Milam is a renowned cybersecurity expert who brings deep expertise in threat intelligence and research, a decisive leadership style, and a creative approach to cyber-security problem-solving and solution design. Milam has worked previously as a VP of Research & Intelligence at Blackberry and, before that, as VP of Research Operations at Cylance. Searchlight Security, a mission-proven dark web intelligence company, is bringing Milam on to address critical gaps in their intelligence and cyber defense strategies as well as to expand their international customer base.
“Eric brings a wealth of experience, credibility, and vision to the Searchlight Security leadership team as we take the next big steps in the company’s expansion,” said Ben Jones, CEO of Searchlight Security. “His role in setting out the strategy for Searchlight’s products will be critical to our success in the market, whether that’s working with law enforcement agencies, enterprises, making technology partnerships or augmenting MSSPs’ current threat intelligence capabilities. It’s going to be a big year for us.”
As the new head Executive Vice President of Searchlight Security’s products Milam will develop tools which are used by world government agencies and businesses to assess the potential risks from the dark web. Searchlight Security specializes in products which allow threat intelligence to be extended into the criminal underground of the dark web. One of these products, DarkIQ, is a software which allows organizations to build customizable threat profiles to identify and take action against potential threats from across the dark web. Searchlight Security also offers Cerberus to law enforcement and organizations for those instances when a deeper search and protection capability is needed. Cerberus is an investigation platform which identifies malicious activity and assists in bringing criminal actors to justice.
Eric Milam, Executive Vice President of Product at Searchlight Security commented on the need for a deep web intelligence company like Searchlight Security: “Deep and dark web monitoring provides vital intelligence that organizations can use to protect their business and law enforcement can use to bring perpetrators to justice. Searchlight already has the most comprehensive dark web intelligence products on the market and I look forward to the next chapter as we build out the functionality further to make this data ever more accessible and actionable for companies.”
