DarkOwl and Symbol Security today announced their partnership, which enables Symbol Security access to DarkOwl’s extensive darknet database. This collaboration will support Symbol Security’s new Cyber Threat Surveillance feature, which will empower thousands of customers to gain access to critical visibility of surface web, deep web, and dark web activity involving their most critical assets.
The Cyber Threat Surveillance tool comes as a result of the ever-escalating global cybercrime landscape. By incorporating data from DarkOwl, Symbol Security is able to offer education programs and resources, alongside proactive awareness and cyber threat visibility – components that are key to reducing cybercrime and overall cyber risk.
“The launch of our Cyber Threat Surveillance service provides previously unattainable darknet visibility for customers with modest budgets” said Symbol Security President and Co-Founder Craig Sandman, “Now, small to mid sized businesses, and the thousands of MSPs, vCISO’s and Security Consultants that serve this space can gain much needed deep and dark web visibility at a price point that make sense.”
While services like Cyber Threat Surveillance exist today, most are built for a more sophisticated global enterprise or Fortune 1000 business. Symbol’s Cyber Threat Surveillance tool, which provides surface, deep, and dark web visibility, is instead aimed towards SMB and mid-market clients.
DarkOwl CEO, Mark Turnage commented, “Symbol Security’s approach to reducing human risk impressively wholistic. Adding DarkOwl’s data to their customer offerings will help to secure cybersecurity visibility services that have been out of reach for so many small businesses. We applaud their mission and recognize their progressive technical expertise, and look forward to a very successful partnership”
