Dark Web Monitoring, Alerting and Analytics

The most cost-effective and versatile solution for dark and grey web intelligence for security and risk professionals.

What is the Dark Web?

The dark web is commonly associated to a tiny fraction of the web that is not indexed by Google and is only accessible through special protocols such as Tor. The term “dark web” is also known as the darknet. Individual Tor nodes create the darknet and anonymize communications inside the dark web. Tor anonymizes communications and hides the origin and destination of the Internet Traffic. Tor provides anonymity to websites and other servers. Each server or website on Tor is a hidden service. The hidden service does not have an IP address. A hidden service has an onion address that can be accessed through a Tor Browser. However, the dark web is also a collection of sites that are accessible on the surface web through Google. These are sites have end-users or content that require constant monitoring for indicators of physical and cyber security threats.
