Searchlight Security, the dark web intelligence company, has announced a new automated reporting function for their dark web monitoring solution DarkIQ. The new reporting function will help security teams and MSSPs communicate pre-attack intelligence to executives, quickly and efficiently.
The DarkIQ platform is a powerful dark web monitoring solution that utilises the most comprehensive dark web dataset on the market. It is the only dark web monitoring tool that keeps track of web traffic to and from an organisation’s network. It also searches the dark web for mentions of a businesses’ important data assets, such as IP addresses, employee credentials, and network components. This information could be used to detect an imminent attack.
The platform’s new reporting function builds on its existing capabilities by helping analysts to communicate more easily about the dark web intelligence they discover. It also helps educate the wider business on dark web threats.
Eric Milam, EVP product at Searchlight Security explained: “Our mission is to make dark web intelligence as relevant and actionable for businesses as possible and our new reporting function is a huge part of that. Threat intelligence is only powerful if it can be understood and acted on – otherwise it is just noise. Communication is everything.”
“In threat intelligence, the job isn’t done until the report is filed. This is a burden on security teams that we wanted to – and have been able to – alleviate, because every minute less they spend reporting is a minute more they can spend stopping the bad guys. At the same time, they have a better solution to deliver pre-attack intelligence with more clarity so the business can be more proactive in stopping imminent threats.”
The many functions of DarkIQ Reporting include giving enterprise security teams and MSSPs the ability to generate reports with one click, the capability to tailor the reports to the right level of detail for the audience it is reaching, as well as the ability to add and remove reporting fields where necessary.
Other features include the ability to customise designs and resource more effectively, so less time is spent on reporting and more time is spent on protecting the business.
Finally, the new reporting feature demonstrates return on investment (ROI) which can be presented to executives by identifying and solving problems before they become costly crisis’s.
