The Dangers and Risks of the Dark Web
Most cyber criminals use the Dark Web to extract data from your machine and exchange it with other criminals. BlackFog is able to detect and block the transfer of this data in real-time. With more than 80% of all ransomware using the Dark Web it is crucial that every organization is protected from data loss and breaches across this network.
How to protect yourself from the Dark Web
BlackFog Enterprise protects users from data loss over the dark web and other anonymous networks and the loss of valuable data from any registered device. This can be completely managed from the cloud with consolidated reporting and alerts.
Unlike antivirus software which uses signature based techniques, BlackFog Enterprise uses next generation multivariant behavioral analysis to prevent attacks and reduce the total surface area exposed to cyber criminals. This includes blocks based on geography, DNS and network anomalies, advertising, profiling and tracking and other data harvesting techniques used by cyber criminals.
BlackFog’s new Enterprise console enables corporations and households to manage devices and threats via a central cloud based console that alerts designated administrators to problems across any registered device. This includes detailed group management and settings for every endpoint in your organization.
