thinkCSC Now Offers Monitoring and Alerting of Stolen Digital Credentials on the Dark Web
Columbus, OH –April 2018 – thinkCSC is pleased to announce the availability of Dark Web monitoring services provided through a strategic partnership with ID Agent, provider of Dark Web monitoring and identity theft protection solutions. With Dark Web ID, thinkCSC can now offer 24/7 monitoring of millions of sources, including botnets, criminal chat rooms, peer-to-peer networks, malicious websites, bulletin boards, and illegal black-market sites, to alert you of stolen or compromised data.
“thinkCSC is determined to provide the strongest cybersecurity to all of our clients,” explained Tom Hastings, President of thinkCSC. “Keeping our customers’ information safe and secure not only protects the individual but also protects the organizations for whom they work. Our partnership with ID Agent, the recognized leader for monitoring logon information, ensures that we have the best tools possible at our disposal.”
While there are some legitimate purposes to the Dark Web, more than 50% of the activity on the Dark Web is nefarious criminal activity, including the theft and sale of digital credentials.
“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 organizations in the SMB and mid-market space.”
Dark Web ID is the industry’s only commercial solution available to detect customers’ compromised credentials in real-time on the Dark Web. It vigilantly searches the most secretive corners of the Internet to find compromised data associated with your customers’ employees, contractors and other personnel, and notifies them immediately when these critical assets are compromised. There are a few competitors in the market but none completely focused on the Dark Web as ID Agent’s solution.
