A glimpse through Digital Logistix journey searching for a Digital Risk Protection Solution
With more than 20 years of experience as a leading distributor of cybersecurity products and services for Latin America and the Caribbean, Digital Logistix takes it very seriously when it comes to choosing which industry vendors we partner with. We evaluate all market players, what they have to offer, their current and historical reputation as a solution provider, their expertise, scale and reach.
At Digital Logistix we understand the current threat landscape in Latin America and the Caribbean, and how to succeed in this market today, organizations are under pressure to innovate and adapt to new digital practices, faster than ever before. We understand no single partner can offer all the security capabilities an organization needs, as fast as they need them. So as a trusted security advisor, we strive to partner with the best-in-class security vendors to help our customers protect their most valuable assets.
Our recent journey searching within the emerging market of digital risk protection for a vendor who would be the best fit for our customers in the region, was truly exciting. We couldn’t have ended with a better vendor to partner with: Digital Shadows, a top leader in the market due to its robust digital risk data and ability to deliver on an aggressive product road map.
During our extensive research, we weighed risk analytics and automated remediation as the most important key differentiating features needed for a solution to effectively detect and resolve. We were looking for a solution able to provide the broadest breadth of coverage and the deepest level of analysis of threats in the open, deep and dark web.
Digital Shadow’s great traction and reputation, within the market was evident and clearly indicated they should be our solution of choice. Just the very fact that Digital Shadows was named a “Leader” in the July Forrester New Wave™: Digital Risk Protection report and awarded the highest rating possible was a ‘clincher’ for us. We were also very impressed by its analyst team’s existing Spanish language expertise, a key qualification needed to operate in such market.
We’re very excited to be the first partner in Latin America and the Caribbean to join the Digital Shadows Channel REV program. This partnership now allows us to offer the tools our business partners need to quickly build their own professional services around SearchLight®, the industry leading digital risk protections solution from Digital Shadows that was recently awarded a maximum 5-star rating by US publication CRN.
Digital Logistix is thrilled about its partnership with Digital Shadows to bring its digital risk protection and relevant threat intelligence to the region. Our expertise in the market is a key advantage in our partnership and we’re confident that working together, we guarantee our customers will experience quick deployments, reduced costs, greater protection and improved compliance.

I’m pleased to announced our partnership with DUO Security, a cloud-based access security provider that protects the fastest-growing companies and thousands of organizations worldwide. DigitalEra is proud to offer it’s customers two-factor authentication which ensures only legitimate users and appropriate devices can access their company’s sensitive data and applications – anytime, anywhere.
Duo two-factor authentication brings strong, scalable security to any organization. Duo’s cloud-based and easy-to-use technology protects users, data and applications from breaches, credential theft and account takeover.
Two-factor authentication, is the simplest, most effective way to make sure users really are who they say they are. It protects applications and data against unauthorized access due to credential theft by verifying users’ identities before they access your data. Protecting a company’s application logins using either hard or soft tokens such as a smartphone app or a physical token, prevents attackers from remotely accessing both on-premises and cloud applications.
Both DigitalEra and Duo are excited about this new partnership and the addition of two-factor authentication as part of our expanded portfolio of security services.
By adding Duo to our security services portfolio, DigitalEra offers customers a one stop shop for securing business. We will continue to partner with experienced technology companies to provide optimal solutions for our customers.
