Founded in 2017, Searchlight Cyber provides organizations with relevant and actionable dark web threat intelligence, helping governments, law enforcement, and enterprises around the world to identify and prevent criminal activity.

Searchlight’s solutions Cerberus and DarkIQ, built in collaboration with major government and law enforcement agencies, are based on ground-breaking academic research into internet anonymizing technologies such as Tor, and have been used in some of the most high-profile dark web investigations to bring perpetrators to justice and prevent cyberattacks.

Cerberus is a powerful investigation platform based on the most comprehensive dark web dataset on the market, providing access to intelligence that was previously unobtainable and helping to uncover criminal activity on the deep and dark web. The world’s leading analysts and investigators use Cerberus to keep their organizations and society safe.

DarkIQ is a dark web monitoring solution that automatically alerts organizations to threats emerging from the dark web so they can proactively protect themselves. DarkIQ is the only dark web monitoring solution on the market that observes dark web traffic to and from an organization’s network, and this can indicate if there is malicious activity present on a network, for example, showing if a threat actor is attempting to gain initial access through port vulnerabilities, or via an insider threat.

Searchlight solutions monitor, pre-empt, and prevent costly security incidents, providing visibility of previously hidden data across 850,000+ dark websites. This intelligence allows investigators and cybersecurity professionals to gain the upper hand over criminals and malicious actors who believe they can act with impunity on the dark web.
