Mitigate cyber attacks with early
detection of adversarial activity.

Protect your brand.

Detecting, identifying and preventing cyberattacks is an ongoing challenge for organizations of every size. And keeping abreast of the latest threats and identifying the risk factors most relevant to your business is a full-time job.

Our Dark Web Hunting service constantly searches the surface, deep, and dark web to identify and detect nefarious activity potentially targeting your organization. We then transform these adversarial threat patterns and activities into tailored analytical data explicitly focused on your business priorities. Our hunters identify state and non-state sponsored cyber threat actors/patterns, insider threat indicators and methodologies, as well as espionage tactics that span industries, ecosystems, and global landscapes. We then provide you with predictive analysis that helps you proactively protect your business against cyber threats and attacks.

What is Dark Web Hunting?

This dark web monitoring service provides proactive, actionable, investigative intelligence research, analysis, and alerting that helps enhance situational awareness. When integrated into your cybersecurity operational posture, Dark Web Hunting helps provide you with a near real-time view into nefarious activities directed against your organization.

How does Dark Web Hunting work?

Our hunters search for threat actor chatter in social media, surface, and deep and dark web forums. They proactively scan for, investigate, and analyze terrorist, hacktivist, and criminal activity conducted against you or your industry from outside your network. These alerts help mitigate your risk before, during, and after attacks. 

Our first team of dark web hunters.
