The Dark Web Scan is in WatchGuard Cloud!

We are excited to announce that the Dark Web Scan is live in WatchGuard Cloud and available on Subscribers and Service Provider accounts. With this new tool, partners and end users can perform searches based on email addresses and domain names to see which accounts have been exposed on the dark web during known data breaches.

The Dark Web Scan will allow partners to generate and send personalized reports. This can be a great conversation starter with customers about the importance of identity and credential theft protection, as well as the need for multi-factor authentication. After all, who knows when an employee will be part of a new breach? 

As a Partner with a Service Provider account, you will be able to:

  • Scan any email address
  • Scan any company domain, except for public ones (,,, etc.)
  • Send personalized dark web reports to authorized domain admins and users

As a Customer with a Subscriber Account, you will be able to:

  • Scan any email address
  • Scan company domain associated with user account 

The Threat of the Dark Web Is Real 

This new feature is a free scanning service and sales tool that can be used to raise awareness among existing and potential customers with data from real breaches involving their company domains and employee credentials. If an employee credential was exposed in the Dark Web, MFA is what can save the company from a breach. And AuthPoint's push-based authentication can even warn users if someone tries to use their stolen credentials.
