Dark Web Monitoring
Ongoing Detection of Compromised User Credentials
The dark web is a dangerous, anonymous portion of the Internet where a lot of illegal activity happens. When a website or organization experiences a data breach, the hackers often take the stolen data and distribute (or sell) it on the dark web. Today, high-profile data breaches happen all the time, and in 2019 alone more than 5.3 billion records were exposed.
Detect Stolen Credentials Before They are Used Against You
Appalachia Technology’s cybersecurity team gathers and monitors threat intelligence from multiple sources on the dark web in order to find cases of stolen passwords and other compromised data. This way, you can take action to update passwords and lock down accounts before the stolen data is used by cybercriminals.
We monitor for all company email addresses under your domain, and can also monitor individual personal email addresses to offer additional protection to your executives and privileged users.
Protection Against Poor Password Practices
It is next to impossible to enforce all of your users to use strong, unique passwords outside of the systems you control. For example, there is little you can do to stop a manager from using the same password as their network login on their personal eBay account. There is a lot of crossover between corporate and personal email accounts too - a user might use their corporate email to log in to their Netflix account. No matter how poor a user’s password hygiene is, dark web monitoring will give you the insight you need to take corrective action.
