Monitoring the dark web comes with a number of challenges. The first is that dark web sites, such as forums, marketplaces and forum discussions aren’t indexed like websites in the open web. Existing dark web search engines are not as nearly as advanced and effective in delivering sufficient results to queries, like Google is, for example, on the open web.
Another challenge is that many sources, like dark web marketplaces, often change their domain to evade the authorities. Finally, closed communities and password-protected data may require payment for access or otherwise have limited access.
These challenges make dark web data notoriously hard to access and effectively monitor. With access to Webz.io’s structured web data feeds, which include our data breach detection service, Signal can now overcome these obstacles and deliver its customers high-quality, relevant dark web data coverage.
