Montreal, Canada and Denver, Colorado, USA – January 9, 2019 — Hitachi Systems Security Inc., a global IT security service provider specialized in 24/7 managed security services and strategic security consulting, today announced its partnership with DarkOwl LLC, a Denver-based cybersecurity company specializing in darknet intelligence information.
The objective of this partnership is to leverage darknet intelligence to augment Hitachi Systems Security’s managed security service offering to empower organizations to continually improve their cybersecurity defenses against threats, breaches and intrusions.
DarkOwl provides the world’s largest commercially-available database of DARKINT™ (darknet, deep web and high-risk surface websites) content and the tools and services to efficiently find leaked or otherwise compromised sensitive data on the darknet. This can include secure credentials, personal information, intellectual property, stolen credit cards or counterfeit documents. By shortening the timeframe to detection of compromised data on the darknet, organizations can swiftly detect security gaps and mitigate damage prior to misuse of their data.
Hitachi Systems Security will be leveraging the DarkOwl Vision platform to embed darknet intelligence capabilities into its proprietary ArkAngel platform. Together, ArkAngel and DarkOwl Vision will correlate external threats from the darknet with current activities in the customer environment to identify potential indicators of compromise and facilitate proactive threat hunting.
By embedding darknet intelligence into its managed security service offering, Hitachi Systems Security will be able to gather critical and timely intelligence from darknet sites, such as Tor, I2p, IRC, ZeroNet, insecure FTP sites and Pastebin, as well as from authenticated forums. The new darknet intelligence capability will be available for integration to all managed security service customers across all sizes, geographies and verticals.
Fadi Albatal, Chief Strategy Officer at Hitachi Systems Security, said that “in this day and age, data has become a true commodity that is sold on the black market for criminal purposes. Darknet intelligence has emerged as a critical factor for effective and thoroughly-executed security services. We are happy to team up with DarkOwl to gain timely and meaningful intelligence that is targeted to our customers to help our global customer base strengthen their cybersecurity defenses.”
Mark Turnage, Chief Executive Officer at DarkOwl, added that “DarkOwl is very pleased to partner with Hitachi Systems Security in this effort. With the steady growth of threats to organizations and companies emanating from the darknet, monitoring the darknet and converting this intelligence to actionable information is critical for any cybersecurity policy.”
As part of their darknet intelligence partnership, both organizations are also planning to collaborate on a series of global darknet intelligence reports for Canada, Japan and the Caribbean. Details will be communicated shortly
