NetCare are proud to announce our new Dark Web monitoring service, provided through our partnership with ID Agent - who develop industry-leading Dark Web monitoring and identity theft protection solutions.
With Dark Web Monitoring, we offer round the clock monitoring and alerting of your digital credentials throughout the Dark Web, scouring millions of sources including botnets, criminal chat rooms, peer-to-peer networks, malicious websites, bulletin boards and illegal black market sites.
"Quite worryingly, I was surprised to find some of my own credentials on the Dark Web, which lead to us investigating a service to protect our clients from the growing criminal market for digital credentials. We've found that in our successful partnership with ID Agent." - Darryl McAllister, Managing Director of NetCare
What exactly is the "Dark Web"?
The Dark Web is the underbelly of the Internet; consisting of a network of websites and digital communities which are hidden from your typical internet user and unaccessible via mainstream search engines. It is predicted to be over 500 times larger than the 'surface web' that regular Internet users use. Whilst there are some legitimate purposes for the Dark Web, because users can remain entirely anonymous it is estimated that over 50 percent of all sites are used for cyber criminal activity, including the disclosure and sale of digital credentials.
What are your "digital credentials"?
Digital credentials are the usernames and passwords used by staff within an organisation to access a whole range of critical business applications. Because people often use the same passwords, or are not careful with the disclosure of the information, these are a common target for cyber criminals, who use this information as a trading commodity on the Dark Web.
“Digital credentials such as usernames and passwords are widely used to connect to critical business applications – the reason these credentials are among the most valuable assets found on the Dark Web,” said Kevin Lancaster, CEO of ID Agent.
“Unfortunately, the unaffordability of cyber offerings has played into the cyber poverty line experienced by small businesses. Dark Web ID, however, delivers an affordable model that provides small businesses with the same advanced credential monitoring capabilities used by Fortune 500 companies to organisations in the SMB and mid-market space.”
