Dark Web ID
Actionable Threat Intel For Any Size Organization
Early 2020 over 500,000 Zoom users have had their account information compromised, and those details are now available on the Dark Web. The users affected range from average grandmas signing on for a virtual visit with the grandkids to big business clients like Citibank that could be handling sensitive data.
A DARK AND DANGEROUS PLACE
The Dark Web is made up of digital communities that sit on top of the Internet, and while there are legitimate purposes to the Dark Web, it is estimated that over 50% of all sites on the Dark Web are used for criminal activities, including the disclosure and sale of digital credentials. 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.
Gain deeper awareness into your security gaps, before cybercriminals have the chance to steal from you.
Stolen user credentials (emails and passwords) found on the Dark Web can indicate that your company or a 3rd party application or website that your employees use has been compromised, so you can take immediate action. Cybercriminals traffic and buy stolen credentials so they can infiltrate your networks to steal your data. By monitoring the Dark Web for threat intelligence about stolen user data associated with your company’s domains, you can be alerted when a compromise is detected, then respond to stop a potentially costly and widespread data breach.
SAAS BUSINESS APPLICATIONS INCREASE RISK
While web-based applications allow employees to do their jobs from most anywhere, they also open your organization to risk. Payroll and HR platforms, CRM and Marketing Automation tools, travel sites, banking sites, and social media accounts are accessed by your employees many times throughout a day. Staffers may use their work email to log in to these sites every day, and human behavior patterns guarantee that at least some of them are reusing passwords, potentially the same ones they use to log in to your network.
EMAIL MONITORING FOR HIGHLY TARGETED EXECS AND PRIVILEGED USERS
Your executives and administrative users often have greater access to systems, information, and sensitive data. If their personal email credentials are compromised, the attacker may be able to use social engineering to trick other employees into giving them access to corporate systems or reuse the same user credentials to gain access to them. Therefore, it’s important to monitor the personal email addresses of your executive and administrative users, in addition to their corporate email accounts.
EXTEND SECURITY TO THE SUPPLY CHAIN
Some cyberattacks against your company will come from exposures involving third-party vendors in your supply chain. Interwoven systems of vendors and partners present security risks as data is shared across networks. The growing need for cyber supply chain risk management has prompted forward-thinking organizations to add Dark Web monitoring to vendor due diligence.
QUICKLY PROVIDE YOUR IT SECURITY TEAM THREAT INTELLIGENCE
Your security teams are resource-constrained and focused on detecting and mitigating threats, rather than installing yet another new technology for monitoring. Dark Web ID takes just minutes to set up and will start showing compromise results right away. Reporting is flexible and can be integrated with other alerting and remediation platforms, with available API.
By adding Dark Web ID monitoring to your security strategy, you’ll gain a more complete picture of your company’s security posture. You’ll have an early warning mechanism before a breach can occur, and invaluable data analytics to evaluate where employees may need security awareness training or where multi-factor authentication and single sign-on is beneficial.
