SideChannel and Darkbeam Announce Strategic Partnership to Deliver Intelligence-Led Cyber Risk Management Programs

WORCESTER, MA / ACCESSWIRE / March 28, 2023 / SideChannel (OTCQB:SDCH), a provider of cybersecurity services, and Darkbeam, a leading provider of cyber risk and threat management capabilities, today announced a strategic partnership that enables:

  • Businesses to build intelligence-led cyber risk management programs covering their own operations and those of their entire supply chain.
  • Advisories to inform clients on cyber risk management during mergers and acquisitions processes.
  • Insurance underwriters to better understand their exposure to clients' cyber risks.

The partnership combines SideChannel's extensive cybersecurity expertise with Darkbeam's advanced Cyber Risk Management platform to make intelligence-driven cyber risk management accessible to more businesses than ever before.

Clients of SideChannel's Virtual CISO (chief information security officer) and Cyber Risk Assessment offerings can benefit from Darkbeam's automated Vulnerability Assessments - which cover all internal properties and the entire supply chain - and its extensive dark web monitoring capabilities. Combined, these enable comprehensive, effective cyber risk management and reduction.

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 - all of which are capabilities necessary to inform a comprehensive cyber risk management program. "

Charles Clark, CEO of Darkbeam, shared his enthusiasm for the partnership, saying, "We are delighted to couple our powerful Cyber Risk Management platform with SideChannel's significant leadership expertise and toolset, making highly effective cyber governance and risk reduction accessible to even more businesses.
