Data Partnerships with SpyCloud

Through the SpyCloud API, product teams have a fast, easy way to gain access to the most comprehensive stolen credential database available.

Integrate with the Most Comprehensive Dark Web-Exposed Credential Collection in the Industry

SpyCloud is the industry leader at discovering exposed credentials in the underground. That’s why organizations from around the world turn to us when they want to build or enhance their product offering with the most extensive collection of exposed data being traded on the dark web.

SpyCloud isn’t just a cyber security company; we are a big data company with the most comprehensive and accurate dark web monitoring solution and dataset available.

Cyber security is all about getting actionable protection to your customers in a timely manner. If your offering isn’t powered by the right data, all of the data, and data in a format your product can quickly consume, you’re at a clear competitive disadvantage in the market.

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 share exposed data with our partners before it is used to cause harm, typically weeks or even 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 – but it all depends on the quality and quantity of data you have at your fingertips.

Bring Better Products to Market Faster with the SpyCloud API

The SpyCloud API was designed for product teams who want a fast, easy-to-use way to access our data. We provide everything a developer needs to deliver the most secure products to the market rapidly.

SpyCloud API Documentation

Good API documentation is your product team’s best friend. Our documentation enables developers to bring products to market faster, with no extra coding or steps to slow them down. Our API documentation is remarkably easy to use and test, and is secure and stable. With our meticulous instructions and feature explanations, developers can begin using our API in minutes.


SpyCloud API and S3 Bucket

Spycloud starts with millions of raw breached assets recovered daily, then distills and transforms them into high-quality, well-formatted and deduplicated data that is ingested into our database. Using the SpyCloud API or S3 bucket, developers have immediate access to our easy-to-read, historical, and real-time dataset to quickly develop products that consume our data. Your database is updated within 24 hours so it is always current, always reliable.

The SpyCloud Difference

Not all cyber security companies are the same and their approach to account protection varies widely. SpyCloud uses human intelligence (HUMINT), decrypted plaintext credentials, and PII to reveal exposed credentials faster and with greater match rates. Not only is our data the cleanest, we provide the most data of any provider, with context and perspective to make it immediately actionable.

Human Intelligence and Rock-Solid Data

SpyCloud offers the most comprehensive, cleansed data available to make your product effective at mitigating the harm that can be caused by exposed credentials and empowering your customer to take immediate action if a breach is discovered. We get access to the most sources and to data people don’t know exists. Many other companies use only automated means of obtaining breach data from public forums and fail to cleanse it so that it is actually usable.

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 specialized hardware and software to decrypt as many of the encrypted password hashes as possible. Of the more than 8 billion passwords recovered to-date, more than 6 billion of them are in plaintext format, giving developers the ability to prove user exposures and automate password exposure checks across internal systems.

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 the black market. No wonder we were winners of the 2017 NATO Defense Innovation Challenge and the 2017 Finovate Best of Show, and runner-up at the Educause Startup Pitch Competition. 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. Where are you getting your data?
