Compromised credentials are one of the most common sources of data breaches. Data theft has reached epidemic proportions and shows no sign of slowing down. Thieves are fast; they waste no time selling your information on the Dark Web. Hundreds of thousands of login credentials (email addresses and passwords) along with other personal information are posted daily.
Compounding this epidemic, it is estimated that 80% of employees will use the same or similar passwords across all the systems they access, both on and off their company’s network. Compromised credentials can cripple an organization in the blink of an eye.
Now, we have the ability to scan the Dark Web to identify your compromised credentials before a corporate breach occurs.
Arctic IT, in partnership with ID Agent, offers Dark Web ID™ – the leading Dark Web monitoring platform in the industry. The award-winning platform combines human and sophisticated Dark Web intelligence with advanced search capabilities to identify, analyze, and proactively monitor for your organization’s compromised credentials.
The Deep Web is a massive sublayer of the Internet that is hidden from conventional search engines like Google. Within this hidden universe lives a nefarious community called the Dark Web. The Dark Web is estimated at 550 times larger than the Surface Web and growing. Because you can operate anonymously, the Dark Web holds a wealth of stolen data and illegal activity.
Dark Web ID focuses on cyber threats that are specific to our clients’ environments. ID Agent monitors the Dark Web and the criminal hacker underground for exposure of our clients’ credentials to malicious individuals.
In short, no. Once the data is posted for sale within the Dark Web, it is quickly copied and distributed (re-sold or traded) to a large number of cyber criminals, within a short period of time. We encourage individuals whose credentials have been discovered on the Dark Web to enroll in an identity and credit monitoring service immediately.
This underscores the importance of having a Dark Web Monitoring service behind you.
You can depend on the experts at Arctic IT to manage, monitor and maintain your technology day and night so you can take care of business.
