DoControl | August 03, 2022
DoControl, the automated Software as a Service (SaaS) security company, today announced an expanded integration with Box, the leading Content Cloud, that adds a foundational layer of granular controls to protect sensitive data and provide comprehensive data access security. The solution further secures cross-application, business-critical data, and files accessed by every identity and entity, both internal employees and external collaborators, allowing for content collaboration to be achieved securely.
Recent research found that nearly half of enterprise tech leaders find too much time is spent on manually provisioning and managing apps. In addition, it found other pain points around managing SaaS, including a lack of visibility, data exposure, and unmanageable access. DoControl No-Code SaaS Security Workflows Engine supports organizations in mitigating ongoing risk consistently, with the customization level required to effectively balance security with business enablement.
"By partnering with Box, we will help customers confidently maintain business continuity and mitigate the risk of data breaches, overexposure, and exfiltration. "Security teams can effectively extend least privilege to the SaaS data layer and utilize a risk-based approach in securing their Box instances through the prioritization of identities that present higher levels of risk."
Adam Gavish, CEO and Co-Founder of DoControl
"Organizations today need products that are inherently secure to support employees working from anywhere," said Fred Klein, Vice President of Business and Corporate Development at Box. "At Box, we continuously strive to improve our integrations with third-party apps so that it's easier than ever for customers to use Box alongside best-in-class solutions. With today's integration with DoControl, we are taking that mission one step further to enable our joint customers to have more granular security controls over who has access to their business-critical content."
Key joint solution capabilities include:
Comprehensive asset management: Gain full awareness of every entity that is accessing corporate data within Box to identify what needs to be protected;
Real-time monitoring and control: Monitor every user activity in real-time, with self-service tooling to detect and respond to immediate threats;
Automated remediation: Establish data access control workflows that are future-proofed, consistently enforced, and allow for secure file sharing between all internal and external users.
Founded in 2020 and headquartered in New York, DoControl is an automated data access controls platform for SaaS applications, improving security and operational efficiency with ease for enterprises. DoControl is backed by investors Insight Partners, StageOne Ventures, Cardumen Capital, RTP Global and global cybersecurity leader CrowdStrike's early stage investment fund, the CrowdStrike Falcon Fund.

Searchlight Security | August 02, 2022
Searchlight Security, the dark web intelligence company, has introduced new automated reporting functionality into its DarkIQ dark web monitoring solution to help security analysts and MSSPs to quickly and easily communicate external threats to executives.
DarkIQ is a powerful dark web monitoring solution that utilizes the most comprehensive dark web dataset on the market, and the only one that includes dark web traffic to and from the organization’s network. It takes the attributes that are most important to a business - including employee credentials, software, devices, IP addresses, network components, and company datasets - and alerts organizations to their presence in deep and dark web marketplaces, forums, and conversations, which could indicate an imminent attack. This threat intelligence is specific to the organization, removing “alert fatigue” and allowing security teams to prioritize the most urgent threats to the business.
DarkIQ’s new automated reporting function builds on its existing capabilities by helping analysts to more easily communicate the dark web intelligence they discover - improving response times to possible attacks and educating the wider business on dark web threats.
“Our mission is to make dark web intelligence as relevant and actionable for businesses as possible and our new reporting function is a huge part of that. Threat intelligence is only powerful if it can be understood and acted on - otherwise it is just noise. Communication is everything.”
Eric Milam, EVP product at Searchlight Security
DarkIQ Reporting gives enterprise security teams and MSSPs the ability to:
Generate slick reports with one click - with threat intelligence data automatically pulled, inputted, and presented from the DarkIQ platform.
Select the right level of detail for the audience - with an “Executive” report option for a high level summary or “Detailed” report for security personnel, which includes recommended remediative actions that should be taken based on the threat data.
Add and remove reporting fields - to further customize the report to suit the audience by adding, moving, or removing components, as well as the ability for security teams to add their own analysis, context and observations.
Customize design - with the ability to brand reports and change the font and color scheme, a particularly important feature for MSSPs reselling DarkIQ to their customers.
Resource more effectively - with less time spent on reporting so they can spend more time protecting the business.
Demonstrate Return on Investment - with the ability to show imminent threats that have been identified and prevented through dark web intelligence.
Milam concluded: “In threat intelligence, the job isn’t done until the report is filed. This is a burden on security teams that we wanted to - and have been able to - alleviate, because every minute less they spend reporting is a minute more they can spend stopping the bad guys. At the same time, they have a better solution to deliver pre-attack intelligence with more clarity so the business can be more proactive in stopping imminent threats.”
