Deep and dark web monitoring

The internet has revolutionised our businesses and our way of life but it’s also prime territory for cyber criminals looking for ways to infiltrate your business and its data.

The dark web is a lucrative network that cybercriminals use to obtain illegal goods, including login credentials such as usernames and passwords for user accounts to business networks and applications. Once obtained, hackers can use these to gain easy access to the critical systems and applications used to keep your business functioning and cause all kinds of damage that often results in financial, data and reputation damage.

Are your business credentials on the dark web?

Your employees appearing on the dark web is often not a result of your business experiencing a data breach, it’s due to third party websites and applications that your staff use becoming breached.

47% of people use the same usernames and passwords across multiple sites and applications, so if a hacker is looking to target your business, there is a high possibility that the credentials they obtain from your employees will give them the keys to your business network. A staggering 81% of hacking-related breaches leverage either stolen and/or weak passwords.

Our dark web monitoring specialists will conduct a full review based on your corporate domains and provide a detailed report which will outline any credentials relating to your business are currently available on the dark web. Once your report is finished our specialists will then work with you to tackle these breaches, ensuring that any leaked credentials become invalid before issues arise and addressing the source of the data breach.
