Searchlight Security was born out of the need to solve a problem: criminals acting with impunity on the dark web.

Founders and long-term friends Ben Jones and Dr Gareth Owenson decided to use their combined skills, knowledge and expertise to create the solution. Through Gareth’s ground-breaking academic research as a pre-eminent Tor expert and Ben’s experience in defense they created the most comprehensive dark web intelligence platform.

Today, Searchlight is used by some of the world’s most innovative and forward-thinking law enforcement agencies, government departments, enterprises and charities to combat criminal activity on the dark web with un-matched intelligence. The team has some of the deepest expertise of the dark web, gained through its involvement in some of the world’s largest and most impactful investigations.

Searchlight continues to innovate in its mission to shine a spotlight on the dark web to protect society from hidden criminal activity.
