RepKnight signs Europe-wide distribution deal with StarLink for dark web monitoring tool
Tuesday, June 12, 2018 - London, UK - Dark web monitoring specialist RepKnight today announces a pan-EMEA distribution agreement with StarLink, a $200 million True Value-Add Distributor that currently supports over 2,200 enterprise and government customers globally.
The agreement enables StarLink to add RepKnight’s dark web monitoring tool, BreachAlert, to its portfolio of IT security offerings. BreachAlert looks for corporate data being posted on the dark web, and many other paste and dump sites used by cybercriminals. The platform works like a burglar alarm — alerting customers in real time as soon as their data appears on the dark web.
Unlike generic threat intelligence feeds, BreachAlert enables security teams to configure searches around specific keywords, domains, and IP addresses, providing instant alerts if cybercriminals are discussing the customer’s applications, infrastructure or data on the dark web, or if compromised staff credentials appear in paste, dump and bin sites.
Michael Koufopoulos, RepKnight’s Channel Director said, “We are building significant momentum around our BreachAlert platform as more and more enterprises wake up to the challenge of dark web monitoring. This makes scaling our channel operation a key priority for the business. StarLink’s True VAD approach, combined with their focus on security platforms and pan-European footprint makes them a natural partner for RepKnight.”
Avinash Advani, SVP Business Development & Alliances at StarLink, added, “The dark web is a key threat for enterprises across the world and organisations need to prioritise enhancing their capabilities when it comes to dark web monitoring. We were highly impressed with RepKnight’s focus on ease of use, and fast configuration. Simplicity is key for our customer base, so the fact that users can be up and running in minutes makes BreachAlert an ideal addition to any organisation’s cybersecurity measures.”
