ID Agent has announced integration with RapidFire Tools’ Network Detective, a suite of IT assessment and compliance tools for MSPs. The integration will allow managed services providers (MSPs) who use Network Detective to assess and report to their clients and prospects whether data and credentials have been exposed via the dangerously untraceable “dark web.” The dark web refers to a series of Internet sites and protocols frequently used by criminals due to the inability to track user activities on those sites.
When running a Network Detective Security Risk Assessment on a client’s or prospect’s network, ID Agent’s Dark Web ID API will report the total number of credentials exposed and provide a sample of recent credential exposures, including emails and masked passwords. Knowledge of these exposures allow MSPs to help their existing clients avoid breaches that are typically generated by dark web activity, and can also be used to demonstrate the need for enhanced IT security for prospective new clients.
“Integrating our technology into Network Detective will allow more MSPs the opportunity to engage in cybersecurity conversations at a meaningful level, by providing real exposure data during an engagement,” said Kevin Lancaster, ID Agent’s CEO. “We are excited to partner with RapidFire Tools because they are noted within the channel for having superb product quality and service, and the technical experience was easy and seamless.”
Michael Mittel, president of RapidFire Tools, added his enthusiasm to the new partnership. “MSPs have been using our network and security assessment tools for years to close new business by quickly, easily, and non-intrusively discovering a wide array of issues at prospective client sites,” said Mittel. “The addition of discovered exposure on the dark web provides a new and critical level of risk aversion to help MSPs combat the evolving threat of resourceful cyber hackers. This new capacity increases the value that a RapidFire Tools MSP can deliver in mitigating risk and reducing their clients’ vulnerability to cyber crime.”
