The SpyCloud Difference

SpyCloud offers the earliest possible detection of potentially compromised accounts – those using credentials that have appeared in a third-party breach or are for sale on the dark web and are therefore at risk of account takeover. And we automate the remediation of exposed passwords, enabling enterprises to lock down accounts quickly, before damage is done. 

Our goal is to help organizations to protect themselves from criminal activity and disrupt criminals’ ability to profit from stolen data.

SpyCloud human intelligence researchers have recovered billions of data breach assets, including stolen passwords and emails that can put enterprises at risk of account takeover
