London, UK, 27 May 2014 – Nettitude, a global leader in the delivery of cyber security testing, risk management, compliance and incident response services, has today announced that it has signed an agreement with Digital Shadows, a cyber intelligence company that protects organisations from data loss and targeted cyber attack, to become a reseller of Digital Shadows’ core managed services, Data SearchLight™ and Threat SearchLight™.
Digital Shadows’ Data SearchLight™ offering allows organisations to view confidential, sensitive or proprietary data that is leaking through its organisational boundary, whether through social networking sites, search engines, file sharing sites etc. Digital Shadows’ Threat SearchLight continuously monitors hostile groups and their activities in order to identify the who, what, where, when and how of targeted attacks. By monitoring over 80 million information sources in 26 languages worldwide, Digital Shadows allows organisations to implement a more proactive, intelligence-led approach to defending against targeted cyber attacks.
“We are delighted to announce our strategic partnership with Nettitude,” said Chris Brown, Business Development Director of Digital Shadows. “As a leading provider of penetration testing and security solutions for global companies, it is ideally placed to integrate the Digital Shadows Threat SearchLight™ and Data SearchLight™ managed services into its clients’ security infrastructure and procedures. The intelligence we provide will enable Nettitude to provide an enhanced level of scenario based testing whilst helping customers to make better informed security decisions and prioritise security incidents.”
At a time when organisations are exposing more information online than ever before through their employees, suppliers and partners; this partnership is particularly pertinent. Especially as this confidential, sensitive or proprietary information can then be used by threat actors to mount precision cyber attacks. As such, organisations are increasingly seeking to fortify their ‘castle walls’.
"As a company, we feel strongly in working with fellow industry leaders in order to generate actionable cyber intelligence that will help businesses to defend against the continually evolving threat landscape," said Rowland Johnson, CEO of Nettitude. "We are delighted to be partnering with Digital Shadows in order to replicate the covert workings of sophisticated attacks and provide accurate real-world assessments of an organisation's security posture. Only by conducting proactive and rigorous testing processes can businesses hope to keep pace with the various vulnerabilities that are uncovered on a daily basis."
