Digital Shadows unveils strategic partnerships and launches an industry-leading digital risk management technology ecosystem

Facilitates comprehensive approach to enable customers to manage and mitigate digital risk while accelerating their return on existing security investments

11 October 2017

San Francisco and London, October, 11, 2017 – Digital Shadows, the industry leader in digital risk management, today announced the launch of its Digital Risk Management Technology Ecosystem. Formed from almost a dozen technology companies, with more expected to join in the coming months, they all share a vision for how security analytics and security information and event management (SIEM), product orchestration and automation, risk & compliance, intelligence and network enforcement, must work together to best protect customers from today’s digital risks. All initial ecosystem members will bring their individual, industry-proven strengths to enhance Digital Shadows’ intelligence and digital risk management capabilities which extend across the widest range of data sources within the open, deep and dark web to protect customers around the world. 

Cyber and physical threats, combined with data, brand, VIP and infrastructure exposure along with third-party risk, are continuing to grow in complexity and volume. Organizations need a rapid and coordinated approach to analysis and response, but their existing solutions typically aren’t validated to work together to facilitate these efforts. To meet this need, Digital Shadows developed the Digital Risk Management Technology Ecosystem to give customers a tightly integrated portfolio of third-party technology products and services, enabling enhanced threat management and remediation capabilities to protect customers’ business, brand and reputation, while simultaneously accelerating return on investment for existing security solutions.

“Today’s digital economy indexed on the use of digital technologies requires that organizations gain complete visibility into their digital footprint to understand their external risk exposure and enable threat mitigation actions,” said Doug Cahill, Senior Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. “Such a holistic approach requires collaboration and integrations that when realized, would enable organizations to take a huge step forward in business efficiency and security effectiveness.”

Alex Seton, Digital Shadows VP Business & Corporate Development said, “Customers seeking to leverage Digital Shadows Searchlight intelligence and digital risk management service with third-party products will now be able to more effectively respond to digital threats. Through a framework created with leading industry partners, Digital Shadows customers now gain even greater insight, a streamlined approach to workflow and remediation, and network-level resolution to verified threats.”

1. Security Analystics/SIEM –  IBM Security, Splunk, Micro Focus
Digital Shadows Searchlight integration with products IBM QRadar, Splunk Enterprise, and Micro Focus ArcSight.

2. Orchestration & Automation – Digital Shadows Searchlight integration with PhantomServiceNow, and Demisto

“Phantom supports the Digital Shadows Digital Risk Management Technology Ecosystem as a clear way to connect our industry leading security automation and orchestration platform to threat management and mitigation solutions aimed at protecting customers’ businesses, brands and reputations,” said CP Morey, VP, Marketing & Products, Phantom

"We are excited that the ThreatConnect and Digital Shadows longstanding partnership continues to strengthen, ” said Dan Cole, ThreatConnect's Director of Product Management. “Our integration helps customers better understand adversaries and mitigate threats, and with the new Digital RiskManagement Technology Ecosystem, those capabilities will be enhanced."
