Cybersecurity Expertise Provider SideChannel Inc. (SDCH) Teams with Risk Data Platform Developer Darkbeam

  • Massachusetts-headquartered cybersecurity services and technology provider SideChannel Inc. has dedicated itself to serving SMB companies who may be unable to employ on-staff cyber risk management personnel, delivering expertise on contract instead
  • SideChannel recently bolstered its “virtual” chief information security officer (“vCISO”) service by partnering with automated supply chain risk management platform developer Darkbeam, a London-based company similarly focused on client cyber security
  • Darkbeam’s platform provides tools for clients to do data dives on affiliated domains and monitor changes in their security status by analyzing a “Cyber Intelligence Quotient”
  • SideChannel also offers clients a microsegmentation tool as a software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) subscription product, which the company also can operate as a managed service if clients prefer

Businesses have enough challenges managing their potential vulnerability to cyber attacks dwithout having to worry about the cyber risk of other companies involved in their supply chain as well.

Cybersecurity services and technology provider SideChannel (OTCQB: SDCH) announced recently that it is partnering its virtual chief information security officer (“vCISO”) expertise with London-based cyber intelligence provider Darkbeam’s advanced risk management platform to grant clients greater tools for preventing losses due to attacks on their computer data infrastructure — both internally and across the breadth of their supply chains.

Darkbeam CEO Charles Clark spoke of the advantages of the partnership in the companies’ news release, stating, “We are delighted to couple our powerful Cyber Risk Management platform with SideChannel’s significant leadership expertise and toolset. … By joining forces, we can provide a comprehensive solution that empowers organizations to proactively manage cyber risks and safeguard their operations, which means our clients can spend less energy worrying about defending themselves and more energy delivering the things that make them great” (

Darkbeam’s automated platform creates on-demand audits in seconds for different domains, allowing companies to assess their suppliers’ digital risk through deep data analysis. Clients can track the Cyber Intelligence Quotient (Cyber IQ) of pertinent domains over time and will soon be able to receive instant notification of any changes to that Cyber IQ.

Darkbeam’s platform checks for exposed and breached emails using the specific domain, using over 50 unique approaches for vulnerabilities.

“Partnering with Darkbeam enables us to deliver even more value to our clients, ensuring them access to the most advanced tools to assess their risk exposure, predict future vulnerabilities and respond to emerging threats,” SideChannel CEO Brian Haugli stated in the news release.

SideChannel is dedicated to helping small and medium-sized businesses (“SMBs”) bolster their cybersecurity even when they may lack the budget necessary to employ a CISO full-time on staff. SideChannel’s virtual CISO service provides contracted CISO expertise through personnel who can embed themselves in company boardrooms alongside the clients’ leading officers.

“We can deliver an entire program and manage that for the mid-market, because that’s how the mid-market buys. That’s what they’re looking for,” Haugli said during a live company webcast in February ( “They really want, not just the tools, they don’t want just the capability and then (for us to) walk away. They want a partner who can come in and manage and run that for them.”

SideChannel also provides a microsegmentation resource called Enclave to clients who want to operate their own security system, however, on a software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) subscription basis.

“We’re going to continue to develop around Enclave, adding new features and capabilities that make sense for how Enclave is structured — based … on what we’re seeing in our clients, what we’re hearing from our CISOs and what types of attacks or attack surface is out there,” Haugli said.
