Access DarkOwl’s vast darknet data from SecurityScorecard for a more comprehensive measurement of cyber risk and exposure, without having to go directly onto darknets, such as Tor.
DarkOwl is one of our growing list of partnerships with leading cybersecurity data providers who bring even more depth into specific issues that your security team needs to know about.
DarkOwl provides the world’s largest database of darknet content and the tools to efficiently find leaked or compromised personal or company data. DarkOwl enables cybersecurity organizations, brands, law enforcement, and government agencies to fully understand their security posture, detect potential breaches, leaks, and violations of the law, and mitigate them quickly.
DarkOwl provides one type of informational signal in SecurityScorecard:
Enterprise DARKINT Exposure Score
Use this credit-score-style measurement to understand how much potentially harmful darknet intelligence is publicly available on your data. Scores are based on the quantity, quality, and freshness of exposed data on the darknet and interconnected data sources. The higher the score, the greater the risk that criminals can gain access to data that can threaten security protocols.
You can best understand scores when benchmarking for your firm’s industry, size, and surface web presence; outliers are often soft targets for hackers.
Note: Partner signals are informational. They do not impact your Scorecard grade.

The data that is surfaced in SecurityScorecard is very similar to what would appear as a "Baseball Card" type score in DarkOwl (see image below).
If you navigate to your findings and hover over the URL for the finding, you can see the DarkOwl data.
So, while you do not need to subscribe to the service, you may find that you can get additional value depending on your use case. To help with your evaluation, consider reviewing DarkOwl's site. You may even choose to book a demo to learn more.
