Dark Web Monitoring

Find Out if Your Data Has Been Stolen with a Complimentary Dark Web Scan!

Don’t assume that your business is “too small to be targeted”… cybercriminals know that they can be more successful targeting lots of small businesses than they can targeting one large one.

HOW we can help you

The Internet has Layers, One of Which Being the Dark Web.

Surface web

When you visit the Internet, you are more than likely sticking to the pages that can be accessed by typing an address into your browser, or by clicking on a link in a search result. This is what is known as the surface web, and contains things like:

  • Websites
  • Reference materials
  • Online stores
  • Design and Implementation
  • System Integration
  • System Integration

Deep Web

You’ve probably also used something called the Deep Web, which is where all those pages that a search engine won’t bring up are kept. This includes online content that a search engine cannot access, but a user can with the right information, like:

  • Online banking
  • Email accounts
  • Paid web services
  • Medical records
  • Restricted pages
  • Internal networks

Even deeper than that is the Dark Web, an anonymous, hidden part of the Internet. Only accessible via specialized browsers, this impersonal expanse is far, far bigger than the Internet you are familiar with.

Due to this, it has become a favorite place for criminals to exchange their ill-gotten goods in relative safety… especially data and information they have stolen from breached companies or services online.

Data on the Dark Web

Where Does the Data on the Dark Web Come From?

As a cybercriminal infiltrates these businesses and services and gains access to their systems, they are able to steal many different kinds of valuable information (like user account credentials, credit card information, and many others) for them to sell to whomever they please.

To buy and sell this information, these criminals turn to the anonymity of the Dark Web, which means that your data, your employees’ data, or your business’ data could be on the Dark Web for the taking.

Data on the Dark Web

Dark Web Monitoring Helps You Identify that You’ve Been Breached.

When it comes to cybercrime, knowledge is power. That’s why we combine our assets, human intelligence and artificial intelligence, into a unified effort to track down any instance of your data on the Dark Web with our scanning tools.

If one of your users was caught in a breach, they can be identified and the issues mitigated from that point on. Through this service, you can be alerted if any of the information under your care is available on the Dark Web, allowing you to take steps to mitigate their use in further criminal endeavors.

What our clients Say

DS Tech’s RMM service has already caught over 5 hard drives about to fail across multiple locations. Rather than having to act out of emergency and rebuild or re-imaging a PC, I am able to plan ahead, schedule a hard drive clone and minimize downtime. This has allowed our technical operations to be much more efficient.

Sandy HuskeyVice President - First National Bank

I just wanted to pass along high praises for all of your staff and personnel at DS Tech! Everyone we’ve worked with has been absolutely wonderful: knowledgeable, relatable (& able to “dumb down” explanations as needed), helpful and professional. You’ve got a great team, which I’m sure you’re aware of, but just wanted to let you know we think so too!

Dianah FayasDeputy Clerk - Dickinson County

The hosted phone system was installed and configured quickly. We now have more features, a lower monthly bill and much better reliability! All of this was done with no upfront fees and no phone system to purchase!

Randy EricksonOwner - Erickson Jewelers

It was a terrible start one Wednesday morning when my laptop hard drive died. However, thanks to the disaster planning put into place between Upper Peninsula State Bank and DS Tech, we had several weeks of backups to choose from. Within 30 minutes DS Tech had responded to the call and dispatched a technician. The tech was able to perform a 100% recovery within the same business day. This is just one reason why we have done business with DS Tech for over 20 years.

Eric LundinVice President - Upper Peninsula State Bank

DS Tech’s Managed Firewall service has really simplified our branch connectivity and reporting. Having seven branches across three counties used to be a big communications challenge with lots of routing and single points of failure, but with the managed firewalls I have secure, redundantly connected communications between our locations.

Sandy HuskeyVice President - First National Bank St. Ignace Michigan

DS Tech is always there when we need them and does an outstanding job providing us with cybersecurity protection while working with us on our technical compliance mandates.

Karen SenkusHealth Officer

Our First Bank team relies heavily on Voice/Telephony to deliver the excellent levels of customer service we need to maintain. We needed a communication solution that was reliable and easy to use – DS Tech helped us to migrate to a new virtual phone system quickly and simply, combining nine branches in the process. It’s great to know we can rely on their support and person to person interaction.
