What is the Dark Web?
The Dark Web is made up of digital communities that sit on top of the Internet, and while there are legitimate purposes to the Dark Web, it is estimated that over 50% of all sites on the Dark Web are used for criminal activities, including the disclosure and sale of digital credentials. Far too often, companies that have had their credentials compromised and sold on the Dark Web don’t know it until they have been informed by law enforcement — but by then, it’s too late.
How does it happen?
When your employees use their work email on third party websites, like the types listed below, it makes your business vulnerable to a breach. With our Dark Web Monitoring, we can detect if your company is at risk due to exposed credentials on those websites.

- Travel Sites

76% of people use the same password for most, if not all websites.

Xari Dark Web Monitoring provides 24/7/365 monitoring of the Dark Web for signs of a company’s exposed and compromised email credentials. We scour millions of sources including: botnets, criminal chat rooms, peer-to-peer networks, malicious websites and blogs, bulletin boards, illegal black market sites,and other private and public forums – all to ensure that we know as soon as compromise occurs. We persistently shine a spotlight on the darkest corners of the Dark Web, and know when any email with your domain extension ends up with credentials available, from email addresses, passwords, birth dates, social security numbers,home addresses, and driver’s license numbers. A report is immediately sent to you.
Why is it important to keep you out of the Dark Web?
- Compromised credentials are used to conduct further criminal activity.
- Employees often use the same password for multiple services, such as network login, social media, and SaaS business applications, exponentially increasing the potential damage from a single compromised credential.
- Limited visibility when credentials are stolen; over 75% of compromised credentials are reported to the victim’s organisation by a third party, such as law enforcement
