LONDON, U.K. — April 23, 2020 — Based on its recent analysis of the European and Israeli cyber threat intelligence (CTI) market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Israel-based Sixgill with the 2020 European & Israeli Technology Innovation Award for empowering companies to take a proactive approach to cybersecurity by presenting automated and actionable intelligence. Its distinct CTI platform extracts data related to imminent cyber threats by continually gathering intelligence associated with cybercrime activity. The solution delivers exceptional visibility into the dark web and helps companies in multiple industries to identify, track, and neutralize hackers targeting their critical assets.
“Sixgill enables clients to assess their level of exposure on the deep, dark, and clear web to identify vulnerabilities,” said Hiten Kamleshkumar Shah, Industry Manager. “It has designed proprietary algorithms that extract data from a wide range of sources, such as dark web social networks, forums, and marketplaces. The algorithm offers deep visibility into channels such as Twitter, Telegram, QQ, and instant relay chats (IRC). This data is then used to create profiles and patterns of dark web threat actors and their interactions with peers across platforms, which otherwise remain invisible or inaccessible to enterprises.”
Sixgill’s platform provides automated and actionable intelligence to protect clients against possible attacks and hacks and in the process, generates a large database of active cybercriminals, trending common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVE), attacks in planning, and exposed credentials. Using Artificial Intelligence and machine learning algorithms, Sixgill automates the production cycle of cyber intelligence, from monitoring through extraction to production, significantly increasing ROI for its customers and partners. Its powerful set of tools help customers uncover patterns in cyber attacks directed at them and the conversations in the dark web related to their assets.
With Sixgill,security teams are able to extract granular details of instances in which their company or any of their companies’ clients have been mentioned among a hacker’s activity on the dark web. The solution is also equipped with an optical character recognition (OCR) capability that gives clients clarity into data that is represented in pictorial format or in foreign languages. The robust data collection mechanism presents security teams with data such as a threat actors’ usernames, activity log, social network, active times, languages known, and other details.
“As Sixgill relies heavily on big data analytics techniques, it thrives on large data sets that aid in the creation of actionable insights. The platform is built to serve, among others, large institutions and law enforcement agencies, both of which have a vast geographical presence and complex security infrastructures,” noted Shah. “Through product development and numerous strategic partnerships, Sixgill enables companies all over the world to navigate a complex security ecosystem.”
