Few organizations have a handle on the risks associated with digital transformation. According to the Ponemon Institute, 72% of leaders agreed the rush to digital transformation increases data breach and cybersecurity risks.
Digital Risk Protection reduces risks that emerge from digital transformation, protecting against the unwanted exposure of a company’s data, brand, and attack surface and providing actionable insight on threats from the open, deep, and dark web.
We know that opportunistic adversaries will actively seek and exploit exposed information; looking for an exposed admin password on GitHub, a leaked vulnerability assessment, or network diagrams. Even organizations that claim to not be ‘interesting enough’ for an attacker will have computing resources that themselves have monetary value for criminals.
Digital Risk Protection has three areas of focus: detecting data loss, securing identity and online brand, and reducing the attack surface.
SearchLight protects against external threats, continually identifying where your assets are exposed, providing sufficient context to understand the risk, and options for remediation.
Data Leakage Protection
Whether it’s intellectual property, personal data, or financial information, the goal of information security is to protect those assets. However, its not enough to only focus on the network – you need to know what data is already exposed.
When these assets are shared across growing electronic ecosystems, third parties, or cloud services, it’s practically impossible to know where your sensitive data resides online.
protects against external threats, continually identifying where your assets are exposed, providing sufficient context to understand the risk, and options for remediation.
SearchLight continually identifies when new domains, social media profiles, or mobile apps appear. This enables you to perform takedowns before the targeting of customers or employees begins.
With SearchLight’s domain timeline, we track changes to the domain’s MX and DNS records and alert you when the risk changes.
