Overview

Uncover hidden risks to your data and reputation

With thousands of threats lurking on the dark web, knowing when your business is at risk of attack is a significant challenge. The privacy and anonymity of the dark web makes it an attractive destination for cybercriminals, whether they are looking to trade in stolen credentials, personal information, malware or illicit goods.

Dark web monitoring, a form of digital risk protection, allows organisations to keep a continuous eye on the deep and dark web, including file sharing networks, forums and other communications channels. This helps to increase cyber maturity and aids in the early detection of cyber-attacks. Dark web monitoring also provides valuable insight into adversary tradecraft and vital intelligence to defend against future attacks.
