What Is Dark Web Monitoring?

What is Dark Web Monitoring?
July 7, 2020 Eileen Marra

The Dark Web is often associated with a place used for illegal criminal activity and cybercriminals tend to use the Dark Web as a place to purchase and sell stolen information, often times leaving businesses vulnerable to a breach. Large companies are not the only ones who are subject to data breaches — businesses of any size and even individuals can fall victim to hackers.

Our Dark Web monitoring service helps protect your business from a cybersecurity breach due to compromised employee credentials by monitoring the Dark Web in real time and automatically alerting you when it’s time to change passwords because your credentials are up for sale on the Dark Web.

When it comes to cyberattacks, threat actors don’t discriminate businesses by size. In fact, 67% of SMBs experienced a cyberattack and 58% experienced a data breach in 2018, according to a Ponemon Institute report.

Dark Web monitoring provides actionable cybersecurity threat intelligence that can be used to proactively protect your business from the risk of a costly data breach.

To help keep your critical business assets safe from the compromises that lead to breach and theft, we are offering a complimentary, one-time scan with our Dark Web monitoring service.

Our Dark Web monitoring detects compromised credentials in real-time on the Dark Web and notifies you immediately when these critical assets are compromised, before they can be used for identity theft, data breaches or other crime. Digital credentials such as usernames and passwords connect you and your employees to critical business applications, as well as online services. Unfortunately, criminals know this — and that’s why digital credentials are among the most valuable assets found on the Dark Web.

Far too often, companies that have had their credentials compromised and sold on the Dark Web don’t know it until they have been informed by law enforcement — but by then, it’s too late. According to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), small and medium-sized businesses may have more to lose than larger organizations because cybersecurity events can be costly and threaten their survival.
