Dark Web Monitoring

Protect your business against compromised credentials with APH’s Dark Web Monitoring service, providing comprehensive vigilance for your entire organisation.

What is Dark Web Monitoring?

The Dark Web is a part of the World Wide Web that is not visible to most ordinary internet users. Special browsers are required to visit ‘dark websites’, which are typically highly anonymous and untraceable.

Within this ecosphere, cyber criminals trade compromised usernames, passwords and other stolen data under cover of anonymity. Databases containing millions of user ID records change hands for use in future identity theft and phishing campaigns.

Dark Web Monitoring provides some security against this, by watching over these shadowy marketplaces and detecting evidence of compromised data. This allows you to change your passwords and authorisation procedures, so your systems cannot be accessed illegally.

One of the key components of Dark Web Monitoring involves continual monitoring of the dark web and online marketplaces for leaked user credentials and personally identifiable information (PII), so we can quickly alert you to any security breaches
