Discover how Apex Computing is continuously striving to keep your business Cyber Safe and ensure your data and privacy is secure on the internet.

Our Dark Web ID Credential Monitoring detects compromised credentials in real-time on the Dark Web and notifies you immediately when accounts are compromised before they can be used for identity theft, data breaches, or other crime. Digital credentials such as usernames and passwords connect you and your employees to critical business applications, as well as online services.

Unfortunately, criminals know this — and that’s why digital credentials are among the most valuable assets found on the Dark Web.

Far too often, companies that have had their credentials compromised and sold on the Dark Web don’t know it until they have been breached — but by then, it’s too late. According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), small and medium-sized businesses may have more to lose than larger organizations, because cybersecurity events can be costly and threaten their survival.

What is the Dark Web?

The Dark Web is a hidden space contained within the “Deep Web”- a sub-layer of the Internet that is hidden from conventional search engines. Search engines like Google, BING and Yahoo only search .04% of the indexed or “surface” Internet. The other 99.96% of the Web consists of databases, private academic and government networks, and the Dark Web. The Dark Web is estimated at 550 times larger than the surface Web and growing. Because you can operate anonymously, the Dark Web holds a wealth of stolen data and illegal activity.

In the coming weeks we will be contacting you with a free report showing what information is for sale on the Dark Web regarding your organization and ways that we can help protect you with our Dark Web Monitoring Service.
