Enables us to collect information from various sources very rapidly, while significantly reducing our workload

What is our primary use case?

We have two use cases. We are providing intelligence and services regarding cyber threats against our clients. Our service covers information from open sources and also the dark web. It's in that context that we are using Sixgill. For example, we have a credit card issuing company as a client. We use Sixgill to collect information regarding illegal credit card information which is sold on the black market. Sixgill covers many dark web markets, including the dark credit card market as an information source. That means we can easily find our customer's credit card information from Sixgill. We… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "They also provide some of the greatest notification capabilities. I put in a customer's company name and domain names, or sometimes I put in their IP addresses as a keyword. Once Sixgill collects information that includes those keywords, they then provide us email notifications. That means we can catch information related to our customers as soon as possible."
  • "Sixgill has strong capabilities based on search queries, but there is some difficulty in using Sixgill. Their querying is very powerful but it can be difficult. It's not hugely complex but you need some skill to use Sixgill querying."

What other advice do I have?

We first had to establish what it was we really needed to know. That was very important. Sixgill, Recorded Future, and other CTI platforms provide a lot of information. If we didn't have some specific requirements for this information, we wouldn't be able to find the information that is important to us, in the flood of information. I would rate Sixgill at eight out of ten. It's a very good solution.

Provides early detection of imminent attacks, and speeds up addressing of vulnerabilities internally because it makes them real

What is our primary use case?

Cybersixgill is a tool that allows you to monitor your organization's exposure to cyber criminals and threats by what I would call scraping Dark Web and underground hacker forum sites. It's not on-premises. It's a service that's offered by Cybersixgill.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution’s approach of using limited open source intelligence and focusing, instead, on the Deep Web and Dark Web is what seals the deal. That is why I like them. I have other tools that I can aggregate all the open source intelligence from. I value Cybersixgill because it provides access to things that no one else does."
  • "Regarding their scraping abilities, things could be solidified. There are definitely improvements that could be made on the specificity for setting certain queries."

What other advice do I have?

My advice is make sure you schedule a walk-through, and then get it. I have been very vocal about how much this tool has helped. I'm a big proponent of it. When I talk to people and collaborate with people in other organizations and they say, "Oh my God, how did you know that?" I'll tell them I knew because of this tool. Others don't do it as well as these people do. This tool does it better than anybody else, because they have focused on one very specific thing and they do it well. Their level of infiltration of these closed forums, and the backend engineering that they've provided, are…
