Commenting on the new version of his company's platform, Cynet CEO Eyal Gruner said:

Introducing the Cynet Lighthouse Credential Theft Monitoring Service

Along with announcing its Cynet 360 updates, Cynet has unveiled the Lighthouse Credential Theft Monitoring Service for its CyOps Platinum offerings.

Lighthouse Credential Theft Monitoring Service lets users monitor the dark web, underground forums and other malicious environments for evidence of compromised data or stolen credentials, Cynet said. In doing so, the service enables users to locate stolen corporate credentials and assets in malicious environments.

In addition, Lighthouse Credential Theft Monitoring Service protects employee credentials even when an employee is not using company-protected devices, Cynet stated. It also is backed by the Lighthouse Service team, which can discover stolen credentials before they are marketed on the dark web and identify infected hosts.

Cynet offers an automated, end-to-end security platform backed by a managed detection and response (MDR) service, according to the company. It launched a global partner program in October 2022 and continues to explore partnership opportunities with MSSPs, MSPs and other technology providers.
