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 organisation 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. Staff may use their work email to log in to these sites every day, and human behaviour 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 organisations 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 monitoring 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.
HOLISTIC VISIBILITY By adding Dark Web monitoring to your security strategy, you will gain a more complete picture of your company’s security posture. Additionally, you will also have an early warning mechanism before a breach can occur, with invaluable data analytics to evaluate where employees may need security awareness training or where identification of where multi-factor authentication and single sign-would provide a more favourable option.
