Portsmouth, UK – Monday December 18, 2023

Searchlight Cyber, the dark web intelligence company, has signed a strategic partnership agreement with Arina, a specialist Digital Forensics, OSINT, and eDiscovery firm headquartered in Switzerland. Through the collaboration, Arina will be able to provide its government, law enforcement, and corporate customers in the DACH region with new dark web investigation capabilities.

Searchlight Cyber’s specialist dark web intelligence products are used by government, law enforcement, and enterprises around the world. Its technology has been used in some of the world’s largest dark web investigations, where law enforcement have been able to utilize Searchlight’s archive of more than 15 years of dark web data collected from marketplaces, forums, and hidden sites.

Through the partnership, Arina is able to offer its customers Searchlight’s industry leading dark web investigation and dark web monitoring products, Cerberus and DarkIQ. The addition of dark web intelligence complements Arina’s existing product portfolio for digital investigations including Digital Forensics, OSINT, and eDiscovery tools.

Markus Mosca, CEO at Arina commented: “We are delighted to form this partnership with Searchlight Cyber, which will allow us to provide our customers with the best dark web intelligence tools on the market. These capabilities are becoming critically important for digital investigations, as criminality increasingly crosses into the hidden underground of the dark web. We pride ourselves on identifying trends early to prepare our clients for emerging risks, and the addition of dark web intelligence means that our customers can stay ahead of new developments in online criminal activity.”

Felipe Portero, Government Business Executive EMEA & APAC at Searchlight Cyber commented: “We are proud to form this partnership with Arina, a firm that has a particularly strong reputation among government and law enforcement for its depth of expertise and solutions for digital investigations.
