Cybersixgill claims to crawl the Dark Web to detect future cybercrime

Sixgill, a self-proclaimed ‘cyber intelligence’ SaaS startup that analyses the Dark Web, is launching publicly today and announcing that it has closed a $5 million funding round led by Elron, an Israeli holding company dedicated to building technology companies.

The new capital will not only be used to launch, but also to further develop the Tel Aviv-based startup’s technology that claims to be able to detect and defuse cyber-attacks and sensitive data leaks originating from the Dark Web before they occur. Specific to this is the ability to provide clients with a heads-up via real-time alerts.

But how exactly does Cybersixgill do this, you may ask. Especially since, by its very nature, the Dark Web exists to keep things, well, in the dark, and that criminal users of the Dark Web go to great lengths to keep their activity untraceable.
