Cybeta Solutions

In recent years, global events have led to an unprecedented surge in internet-connected services and devices on the external network.

While the future of remote work remains uncertain, many large enterprises have already been grappling with shadow IT and the overwhelming number of devices, systems, applications, and servers being set up without proper oversight. This has significantly expanded the digital attack surface, making it easier for threat actors to discreetly identify and potentially target vulnerable areas of the external network by exploiting misconfigurations, lack of patching, or lack of visibility.

To address these challenges, Cybeta Overwatch offers an analyst-driven intelligence solution that helps reduce the likelihood of cyber risk scenarios by continuously evaluating external network infrastructure and other areas of a client’s discoverable footprint. Our methodology takes a threat actor perspective and produces actionable and contextualized intelligence sourced from the deep and dark web, open-source intelligence, and attack surface discovery techniques. This information is then merged with global attack trends to provide key stakeholders with perspective and clarity on potential threats leading to negative outcomes.

We seamlessly integrate and coordinate with security and IT teams’ threat reduction goals, helping perpetually stretched resources focus remediation efforts on only the highest ROI threats. Our seasoned human expertise is a key differentiator that allows us to exclude false positives that typically strain IT resources and detract from breach prevention

Deep and Dark Web

Collection and Analysis

Most large-scale events of consequence, whether acts of terrorism or cyber-attacks, tend to be preceded by certain behaviors or actions that went unnoticed. Cybeta Overwatch expects that and understands where to look. We scour the dark corners of the web where pre-attack infrastructure and discussions or other indicators may be occurring but have gone unnoticed.  Our deep and dark web findings are sourced from:

  • Hidden Service Communities
  • Threat Actor Forums
  • Illicit Commodity Markets and Card Shops
  • Paste Sites
  • IRC Channels
  • And More

Cybeta has the capability and expertise to leverage an array of public sources to deliver impactful intelligence to our clients utilizing sources as:

Public Databases
Global FTP

Examples of findings can highlight:

  • Autonomous Systems
  • IP Ports and Protocol Services
  • HW/SW Technologies and Versions
  • Subdomains
  • Web Applications

Dark Web Credential Monitoring

Having personal details and passwords exposed in third-party data breaches can increase the odds of being targeted by orders of magnitude – and with more than half of corporate users reusing passwords across multiple accounts, Cybeta can inform your susceptibility to social engineering by expertly navigating deep and dark web communities where commodity credentials are available for sale.

Cybeta Overwatch Use Cases

Retail Fraud and Counterfeit

Fraud teams and other security stakeholders require access to unique sources to truly gain insight on threat actor operations and their targeting of corporate data and assets.  Leverage our familiarity with illicit marketplaces, card shops, and other hidden services where your brand is being impersonated or exploits for your product are being discussed or transacted.

Physical Security Social Engineering

Whether from concerning social media posts, negative job review comments, or other problematic content harvested from deep web community forums, enterprise stakeholders are prudent to seek better clarity on whether online threats are credible and if a risk to the workplace or employee safety exist. Leveraging our experience in operations in the national security space, we are capable of supporting tailored requirements where gaps such as unauthorized access and physical security social engineering risk need to be understood.
