Searchlight Security, a dark web intelligence company, has rebranded itself as Searchlight Cyber.

The name change is accompanied by the launch of a new visual identity including a new company logo, website, and an update to its product design, the company said in a prepared statement.

Searchlight Debuts New Dark Web-Focused Website

Searchlight Cyber’s new website is designed to be a knowledge base for security professionals to learn more about the emerging field of dark web threat intelligence, the company said. Correspondingly, enterprises, law enforcement and MSSPs “can easily navigate and access resources on how to combat dark web threats including reports, webinars, videos, blogs, case studies and more.”

As Searchlight Cyber CEO Ben Jones explained:

“I am delighted to announce that we are capping off a very exciting year for the company with a rebrand. Since we launched five years ago we have been on a fast-growth trajectory, and this has never been more apparent than in 2022. In this year alone, our headcount has increased by more than 150%, we have grown our customer base in both the U.K. and U.S., and we’ve launched exciting capabilities in our products. This new brand reflects the maturity of the company and our mission to help protect society from dark web threats, with our new website in particular geared around the value and insight that we can deliver to our customers.”

Searchlight Cyber’s Ransomware Search and Insights is among the many product announcements the company has made this year. In addition, Searchlight’s threat intelligence report, Dark Web Profiles: The Most Prolific Ransomware Groups of 2022, can be accessed on the Searchlight Cyber website.

Searchlight’s MSSP Factor

Searchlight Cyber offers its DarkIQ multi-tenancy capability to help MSSPs to manage their entire customer base through one platform, without having to toggle between accounts. DarkIQ simplifies monitoring the deep and dark web for information, including employee credentials, IP addresses, company datasets, devices and software, and warns of an imminent attack, the company said.

The DarkIQ multi-tenancy feature gives enterprises and MSSPs the ability to:

  • Expand dark web monitoring to subsidiaries, suppliers and customers
  • Monitor the dark web for early warning signs of threats against affiliated companies
  • Reduce supply chain risk with the ability to spot dark web chatter around third parties
