CHICAGO, Nov. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Keeper Security, Inc., the leading creator of zero-knowledge security solutions, Keeper® Password Manager and KeeperChat®, today announced the addition of BreachWatch, a monitoring product that scours the dark web (an anonymous marketplace for stolen credentials) for user accounts from hacked websites. BreachWatch alerts users when their account information is found on the dark web and delivers an in-app alert prompting the user to update their credentials.
In the United States, there is no federal law regulating what companies must do if their users' information is stolen or compromised. More often than not, breached companies are slow to let users know their credentials have been stolen. Hackers take advantage of this time to either sell this information or use it to gain access to privileged information. BreachWatch eliminates the fear of the unknown and will alert a user in real time if their credentials may have been part of a breach. After a user is alerted within Keeper the user is directed to change the account information for the breached site. Once activated, BreachWatch continuously monitors for compromised credentials.
"Hackers continue to become more sophisticated in their attacks but their primary target remain the same - passwords," says Darren Guccione, CEO & Co-Founder of Keeper Security. "With BreachWatch, we're giving our customers greater online security and peace of mind. If any of their passwords are part of a breached website or application, they'll be quickly notified so they can take necessary action to protect themselves."
BreachWatch delivers the most in depth monitoring available to the public with a database of over a billion records while upholding Keepers state-of-the-art, zero-knowledge security architecture. BreachWatch is available for $19.99 per year for all Keeper Unlimited and Family Plan customers. It includes unlimited scans on unlimited devices.
