Case Study: Webhose Expands GetSignal’s OSINT Solutions
Monitoring the dark web comes with a number of challenges. First, dark web sites, such as forums, marketplaces and discussions aren’t indexed like in the open web, and 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. Second, many sources, like dark web marketplaces, often change their domain to evade the authorities. Finally, closed communities and password-protected data may require payment to access or otherwise have limited access.
These challenges make dark web data notoriously hard to access and effectively monitor. With access to Webhose’s data that also includes its data breach detection service, Signal can now overcome these obstacles and deliver its customers high-quality, structured, relevant dark web data coverage.
