Searchlight Cyber Enhances DarkIQ with MITRE ATT&CK Framework Integration

By Stefania Viscusi

Dark web intelligence company Searchlight Cyber announced it elevated its dark web monitoring solution, DarkIQ, by integrating the MITRE ATT&CK Enterprise Framework.

This new integration empowers cybersecurity teams of all sizes with actionable dark web intelligence so they can contextualize ongoing threats and respond quickly with recommended mitigations.

With dark web intelligence, it's possible to preemptively identify cybersecurity threats in their early stages. The issue is that most security teams cannot translate this intelligence into actionable steps because of contextual gaps, time constraints, and other resource limitations.

MITRE ATT&CK is a widely adopted public framework that consolidates vast insights on attack methods and recommended responses, promoting more effective cybersecurity practices.

Using MITRE ATT&CK Mapping, DarkIQ is able to identify threats during the reconnaissance and resource development stages of the Enterprise Framework. These early planning phases of a cyberattack, typically unfolding in the dark web, present a crucial window for organizations to respond before their network is breached.

With this latest update to DarkIQ, security teams gain this necessary context in a language they understand, enabling faster and more effective responses to cyber threats.

“Identifying the dark web threats to your organization is vital, but it’s what you do with that early warning that matters,” said Dr. Gareth Owenson, CTO of Searchlight Cyber. “Without having the knowledge of which mitigating actions to take based on dark web intelligence, organizations miss an opportunity to prevent a cyberattack before it has a chance to impact their business. By incorporating the MITRE ATT&CK Enterprise Framework into our DarkIQ platform, we are arming cybersecurity teams of all abilities with actionable next steps that they can use to respond to active threats, quicker.”
