TEL AVIV, Israel & MEXICO CITY–Sixgill (http://cybersixgill.com/) a cyber intelligence company has signed a deal with Scitum/Telmex, part of Grupo Carso, and the largest integrated information security company in Mexico and the Latin American region. Sixgill’s advanced platform detects and defuses cyber-attacks and sensitive data leaks originating from the Dark Web before they occur, and provides this information through real-time alerts. Scitum will implement and offer Sixgill’s services to other Grupo Carso companies, including with Scitum’s parent company, Telmex, and América Móvil, a leading wireless services provider in Latin America and the fourth largest in the world in terms of equity subscribers.

It will be added to Scitum’s portfolio of services related to security and managed services that include the design, implementation, and management of infrastructures of security of information, and consulting.
In an era where large enterprises face increasingly sophisticated hackers and cyber attacks, Sixgill offers a proven solution that greatly reduces damages to organizations. Sixgill’s platform utilizes automated monitoring of closed, open, and hybrid Dark Web forums, where it collates and analyzes “big data” to create profiles and patterns of Dark Web users and their hidden social networks. This allows Sixgill to identify potential hackers based on their activities, and track them as they plan malicious and illegal activity. Sixgill’s platform can also be used to identify sensitive data leaks, expose illegal marketplaces, and warn of physical attacks.
“We’re very excited to utilize Sixgill’s platform to add to our cutting-edge cyber security services that we offer our clients,” said Ulises Castillo Hernández, CEO of Scitum. “This agreement will augment our already extensive cyber threat detection capabilities, and allow us to further mitigate malicious attacks and data leaks originating from the Dark Web.”
“This is a great opportunity for Sixgill that showcases how our cyber intelligence solutions can be employed to protect some of the largest companies,” said Sixgill CEO and Co-Founder, Avi Kasztan. “Our state-of-the-art algorithms and social profiling methods, allow us to provide prioritized, real-time alerts, that make sure clients are made aware of urgent threats, in time for them to take action.”
Sixgill was founded in 2014 by Avi Kasztan and Elad Lavi, to detect and defuse cyber threats and attacks on organizations originating from the Dark Web. Sixgill is a graduate of the Citi Accelerator in Tel Aviv, and is working closely with Citi mentors to adapt the product capabilities to the needs of large global enterprises.
