The AlienApp™ for Dark Web Monitoring allows you to detect if your users’ credentials have been compromised in a third-party breach and trafficked on the dark web, so that you can take immediate action to prevent a breach.

The AlienApp for Dark Web Monitoring leverages SpyCloud technology to monitor the dark web to discover if your users’ credentials, such as email addresses, usernames, and passwords, have been stolen. If detected, USM Anywhere alerts you so that you can respond swiftly to the compromise, ahead of a breach.

With this AlienApp, you can:

  • Protect against a breach with early detection of compromised user credentials
  • Monitor the dark web for stolen corporate credentials of your users
  • Safeguard the personal credentials of highly-targeted executives and privileged users
  • Be alerted as soon as compromised user credentials are discovered on the dark web

How It Works

  1. The AlienApp for Dark Web Monitoring is available to all USM Anywhere users out of the box, with no additional installation requirements. Simply enter your organization’s domain and up to ten additional personal email addresses. Once verified, monitoring starts automatically through SpyCloud.
  2. SpyCloud uses human and machine intelligence to monitor public, private, and covert sources on the dark web, gathering threat intelligence and identifying user credentials that have been stolen. This data is collected within USM Anywhere through the AlienApp.
  3. USM Anywhere generates alarms when the AlienApp detects your users’ personal or corporate credentials on the dark web, including information about the compromise and whether it is part of a publicly disclosed breach or from a private source.
  4. If the credentials were obtained from an infected machine (e.g. with a keylogger), USM Anywhere generates an additional alarm, so that you can take corrective action.

Why You’ll Love the AlienApp for Dark Web Monitoring

Know Before a Breach Happens

Stolen user credentials found on the dark web can indicate that your organization, or an online service that your company or an individual employee uses, has been compromised and that you should take action. Cybercriminals traffic and purchase stolen user credentials to infiltrate your environment and steal your data, which can be difficult to detect until it’s too late. By monitoring the dark web for threat intelligence about stolen user credentials, you can be alerted as soon as the compromise is detected, giving you an early detection avenue, so that you can respond to stop a potential widespread data breach.

safeguard your executives personal accounts

Your executives and privileged users (such as IT admins) often have greater access to the systems, information, and sensitive data in your environment. If their personal email credentials are compromised, the attacker may be able to move laterally to gain access to other user accounts associated with that email address, or may be able to reuse the same user credentials to gain access to corporate systems. Thus, it’s important to monitor the personal email addresses of your executive and privileged users, in addition to their corporate email accounts. That’s why the AlienApp for Dark Web Monitoring allows you to monitor up to 10 individual email addresses outside of your organization’s domain, in addition to those monitored within the corporate domain.

Protect Against Bad PassWord Hygiene

Compromises and data breaches can often be traced back to poor user password hygiene. Users often demonstrate poor security practices, especially when it comes to usernames and passwords of their corporate and personal accounts. They often use their corporate email address for personal accounts, reuse the same password across multiple sites, and rarely change them. This AlienApp helps you to safeguard your users’ credentials from compromise, despite their poor security hygiene.  

Get Started with a fast & easy Setup

Today’s resource-constrained security teams must focus on threat detection and response, not on installing new security technologies to provide security monitoring.  And, when you do introduce a new security technology, you want it to show results right away, especially if your organization is at risk from user credentials stolen or leaked in third-party breaches. With the AlienApp for Dark Web Monitoring, you can get started within minutes. It’s simple to set up, integrated in USM Anywhere, and free and easy to use.
