designDATA Now Offering Dark Web Monitoring Services

Company to Provide Monitoring and Alerting of Stolen Digital Credentials, an Increasingly Valuable Asset on the Dark Web

GAITHERSBURG. MD - July 9,2018 – designDATA, a managed technology company that simplifies IT for information workers, today announced its new Dark Web monitoring and theft protection service, free of charge for all managed services clients. Through a proprietary partnership, designDATA will offer around the clock monitoring and alerting for increasingly compromised digital credentials, scouring millions of sources—botnets, criminal chat rooms, peer-to-peer networks, malicious websites, bulletin boards and illegal black-marketsites.

“With the frequency of cybercrimes on the rise, employee and customer information must be protected at all times,” said Matt Ruck, Vice President at designDATA. “Many businesses aren’t familiar with the Dark Web and the power it has to turn a data breach into a business catastrophe. For this reason, adding these monitoring services to our suite of turnkey solutions was no question. As a full-service MSP, it is our job to ensure our clients have the most up-to-date, comprehensive and protective services available.”

The Dark Web is made up of various digital communities. While there are legitimate purposes for the Dark Web, it is estimated that more than 50 percent of all sites on the Dark Web today are used for criminal activities, including the disclosure and sale of digital credentials.

This partnership allows designDATA to detect customers’ compromised credentials in real-time on the Dark Web. This solution vigilantly searches the most secretive corners of the Internet to find compromised data associated with customers,employees, contractors and other personnel, and notifies them immediately when these critical assets are compromised.
