The Dark Web is a vital source for Cyber Threat Intelligence. Dark Web networks have been utilised by cyber criminals for more than 20 years. Longer than you may think.
They provide a deep insight into the world of online criminals.
For MSSPs and CTI researchers this means the Dark web must be closely monitored for new and ongoing attacks.
Scouring the Dark Web is no easy task, and very difficult without proper software and a large team of researchers.
The Dark Web is a vast territory made up of multiple networks using many network protocols for anonymous communication.
The most used Dark Web network, known as The Onion Router or TOR, consists of more than 7,000 relays and 3,000 bridges. This supportsa hefty user base of roughly 3 million users. These users use TOR to access one or more of the 40,000 services on the TOR network, transmitting more than 20 terabytes of data daily.
So, the million dollar question is…
How does one index and analyse such a vast network in an affordable and time efficient manner?
This is where SOS Intelligence comes in. We help MSSPs help businesses and organisations sleep easier at night by providing accessible cyber-threat and dark web intelligence with real time alerting. It’s a highly configurable threat intelligence solution.
Our Dark Web toolkit is capable of indexing the TOR network quickly and efficiently.
The SOS Intel Dark Web toolkit is a “Turnkey” ready-to-go solution for MSSPs and CTI researchers, offering in-depth data on onion services.
Our toolkit includes the TOR networking mapping tool known as “DARKMAP” plus the Dark Web search tool “DARKSEARCH”. We also have the Open Source Intelligence tool “OSINT SEARCH”. These are accessed via a custom API and a web dashboard where you can manage your alerts and keywords for CTI.
We understand time limitations MSSPs and CTI researchers have. SOS Intelligence’s mission is to provide a service that is both affordable and accessible. Our entire Dark Web toolkit can be set up and configured in mere minutes!
We are your eyes and ears online, even in the darkest places.
