DarkOwl uses BlueVoyant for security
Global expert-driven cybersecurity services company, BlueVoyant (www.bluevoyant.com) has been selected by DarkOwl (www.darkowl.com) providers of the world’s largest index of darknet content, to deliver a tailored and comprehensive Managed Security Service.
BlueVoyant will provide its advanced Managed Detection and Response (MDR+) capabilities, including support from its team of skilled intelligence analysts and security experts, to protect endpoints, detect intrusion and defend against the latest and most sophisticated security threats.
DarkOwl enables organizations to safely search the world’s largest dataset of darknet content. Its Vision API enables its data to be directly integrated into a client’s native platforms, while its DarkINT risk scores simplify risk management based on the organization’s darknet footprint. Monitoring and alerting enable clients to quickly discover breached material appearing on the darknet.
As an expert in analysing the cyber threat landscape, DarkOwl was looking for a security solution that goes beyond the current patchwork of point products and is instead modelled directly on the company’s unique data and activities.
“The threat landscape continues outpacing threat defense and it has become obvious that the existing model for protecting critical assets, end-users and endpoints is flawed. Instead of choosing yet another partial solution that can only determine threat and compromise based on triggered rulesets or known patterns of behaviour, we chose BlueVoyant’s MDR+ approach to get ahead of the curve. By modelling its service on our data and the output of our activities BlueVoyant is able to detect issues and compromise much earlier,” explains Mark Turnage, CEO of DarkOwl.
“The fast pace and complex evolution of the cyber threat landscape makes it hard for under-pressure internal teams to stay current with every emerging threat,” adds Jim Rosenthal, CEO, BlueVoyant. “The unrivalled knowledge and experience of our team, combined with our advanced technology and proprietary datasets, provides deep expertise and oversight that means clients like DarkOwl can be confident that their business is protected.”
The relationship between BlueVoyant and DarkOwl is an example of cybersecurity vendors investing in their own security controls by onboarding managed security services, as customers evaluate long-term security budget cuts – something which has been exaggerated by the global COVID-19 pandemic.
