Washington DC, US & Portsmouth, UK – April 11 2023

Searchlight Cyber, the dark web intelligence company, has been shortlisted for Cyber Security Emerging Vendor of the Year award at the prestigious IT Europa Channel Awards 2023.

Now in their 15th year, The IT Europa Channel Awards celebrate standout technologies and organizations, serving as the industry benchmark in IT channel excellence. This year, the awards received more than 300 entries from 18 different countries across Europe. The entrants for Cyber Security Emerging Vendor of the Year were judged on their rapid growth and expansion in the past 12 months, as well as company vision, strong go-to-market strategy, and stand-out results for customers and partners. Winners will be chosen by an expert panel of judges.

Searchlight Cyber’s shortlisting for Cyber Security Emerging Vendor of the Year recognizes the merits of its dark web intelligence capabilities and the unique cybersecurity and business opportunities it offers to the channel. Searchlight helps MSSPs give their customers visibility into pre-attack activity for the first time by providing unprecedented access to hidden data across 850,000+ dark websites – where threat actors plan their attacks.

With visibility into the dark web, MSSPs can identify the early warning signs of an attack against their customers long before they reach their network, allowing them to proactively pre-empt potential incidents, help their customers to stay ahead of cyber threats, and demonstrate their value from day one.

“The channel is hugely important to our business, and it’s an honor to be recognized for our work with MSSPs and VARs to help protect their customers from dark web threats” said Ben Jones, Co-Founder and CEO of Searchlight Cyber. “We are seeing increasing interest in dark web intelligence from the channel and this award is a great recognition of the work we have done to make our products the best they can be for our partners.”

Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London on Thursday 18 May. Click here to read the full shortlist.
