CELAES Financial Security Conference, Miami FL, October 30, 2018: Digital Shadows is pleased to announce its partnership with Digital Logistix to bring its digital risk protection and relevant threat intelligence to Latin America and the Caribbean.
Digital Logistix is a leading distributor in the region of cybersecurity products and services, of top industry vendors such as Cylance, Fire Eye and McAfee. In choosing Digital Shadows as its digital risk protection solution of choice, it will provide both parties with the expertise, scale and reach to help organizations in Latin America and the Caribbean to monitor, manage and remediate their digital risk.
Digital Logistix is the first partner in the region to join the Digital Shadows Channel REV program. This partnership allows them to offer the tools their business partners need to quickly build their own professional services around SearchLight™, the industry leading digital risk protections solution from Digital Shadows. The program was recently awarded a maximum 5-star rating by US publication CRN.
Ricardo Martinez, Director of Business Development for Latin America at Digital Logistix comments: “We have been evaluating all the providers of digital risk protection to decide the best fit for our customers in Latin America. We decided that Digital Shadows provides the broadest breadth of coverage and the deepest level of analysis of threats on the open, deep and dark web. We were very impressed by it’s analyst team’s existing Spanish language expertise. Also the fact, that Digital Shadows was named a “Leader” in the July Forrester New Wave™: Digital Risk Protection report and awarded the highest rating possible was a ‘clincher’ for us.”
Nick Hayes, lead Forrester analyst has also previously stated: “Digital Shadows keeps getting closer to an all-in-one solution to monitor and mitigate external risk exposure online. Its rich partner ecosystem, including security technology vendors, regional legal services, and law enforcement, adds further value for all customers.”
Alastair Paterson, CEO of Digital Shadows adds: “Latin America is a key market for us. A recent report from the Organization of American States indicates that nine out of ten banks in the region suffered a cyber-attack last year. Digital Shadows tracks a high number of threat actors associated with the region which typically operate with a high level of sophistication. As such it’s particularly important that we work with a partner that understands this threat landscape and is already working with key organizations in the region. Digital Logistix is that partner.”
With more than eight years of expertise in the industry, Digital Shadows protects more than 200 organizations on a global basis from digital risks. The company now has offices in London, San Francisco, Dallas, Singapore and Germany and employs almost 200 people. Last year it completed its Series C funding round, with a total of $49 million dollars in investments, since Alastair Paterson and James Chappell founded the business.
