Sixgill, a cyber intelligence startup has signed a strategic partnership and collaboration agreement with Carlos Slim’s Grupo Carso company,  Scitum/Telmex, to automatically monitor the Dark Web for malicious attacks for customers in Mexico and Latin America.

Sixgill’s platform detects and defuses cyber-attacks and sensitive data leaks originating from the Dark Web before they occur, and provides this information through real-time alerts. Scitum will implement and offer Sixgill’s services to other Grupo Carso companies, including with Scitum’s parent company, Telmex, and América Móvil, a leading wireless services provider in Latin America and the fourth largest in the world in terms of equity subscribers.

Scitum will offer Sixgill’s solution portfolio as an “on-premise” solution, as well as under a SaaS model. It will be added to Scitum’s portfolio of services related to security and managed services that include the design, implementation, and management of infrastructures of security of information, and consulting.

Sixgill’s platform utilizes automated monitoring of closed, open, and hybrid Dark Web forums, where it collates and analyzes “big data” to create profiles and patterns of Dark Web users and their hidden social networks. This allows Sixgill to identify potential hackers based on their activities, and track them as they plan malicious and illegal activity. Sixgill’s platform can also be used to identify sensitive data leaks, expose illegal marketplaces, and warn of physical attacks.

Ulises Castillo Hernández, CEO of Scitum said “This agreement will augment our already extensive cyber threat detection capabilities, and allow us to further mitigate malicious attacks and data leaks originating from the Dark Web.”

“This is a great opportunity for Sixgill that showcases how our cyber intelligence solutions can be employed to protect some of the largest companies, ” said Sixgill CEO and Co-Founder, Avi Kasztan. “Our state-of-the-art algorithms and social profiling methods, allow us to provide prioritized, real-time alerts, that make sure clients are made aware of urgent threats, in time for them to take action.”
