How We Do It

SpyCloud utilizes human intelligence (HUMINT) and automated scanning to gain access to the same data the fraudsters use. Through our proprietary technology and tradecraft, we can surface exposed data (credentials, PII, etc.) before it is used to cause harm, typically many months before it becomes available to “dark web scanners.”

The earlier 3rd party breaches are discovered, the faster you can mitigate the risk and prevent collateral damage to your employees or consumers – but it all depends on the quality and quantity of data you have at your fingertips.

Human Intelligence and Rock-Solid Data

SpyCloud offers the most relevant and actionable data available, including plaintext passwords to enable the most login matches. Using SpyCloud mitigates the harm that can be caused by credentials exposed on the dark web, and empowering your users to take immediate action if a breach is discovered.

Access to Decrypted Plaintext Passwords

SpyCloud manages the most expansive database of decrypted plaintext passwords in the industry. Once a new breach is recovered from the dark web, we use a specialized process to decrypt as many of the encrypted password hashes as possible. Of the more than 21 billion passwords recovered to-date, more than 90% are in plaintext format. This means you’re able to match more logins against our database, prove user exposures and automate password remediation to keep your internal systems safe.

Largest Database, Most Matches and Most Industry-Leading Partners

Because of our proprietary use of both HUMINT and automation tools, SpyCloud boasts the largest database and the highest match rate of accounts being sold on underground markets. No wonder we were named Best in Show at the 2019 Digital Banking Conference, the 2017 NATO Defense Innovation Challenge and Finovate 2017. It’s also one of the reasons leading companies such as Cisco, Avast and AlienVault rely on SpyCloud to protect their employee and customer accounts.

With expert eyes and ears always looking out for bad actors and breaches, SpyCloud is continually adding valuable data to our database. We are the only ones who crack passwords and update our data sets with real-time data straight from the dark web.
