The SpyCloud Difference

Current, Relevant, Truly Actionable Data

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.
