Background Screening Services

Dark Web Screening

Dark web monitoring combines human and sophisticated Dark Web intelligence with search capabilities to identify, analyze and proactively monitor for your compromised or stolen employee, customer, and supply chain user credentials. The largest private and public-sector organizations globally rely on Dark Web Monitoring to provide actionable stolen credential data to make informed decisions.

Dark Web Email Screening

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 to gain access or reuse the same user credentials to gain access to corporate systems. Therefore, it’s important to monitor the personal mail addresses of your executive and administrative users, in addition to their corporate email accounts. Dark Web ID will monitor up to 10 personal emails, in addition to those within the corporate network.
