Breached credentials are the number one reason for compromise, typically they arrive via a phishing email.
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 about it until they have been informed by law enforcement – but by then, it’s too late.
When your employees use their work email on third party websites, like Social Media, HR, Payroll it makes your business vulnerable to a breach. With our service, we can detect if your company is at risk due to exposed credentials on those websites.
