Crossword announces Sticky Password integration

Crossword Cybersecurity has announced the integration of its real-time credential checking service, Arc, with secure password vault, Sticky Password.

Arc is a dark web monitoring solution that provides a continuous method of checking if credential pairs, stored by a user in the Sticky Password vault, are an identical match to credentials being distributed on dark markets that trade in stolen data.

Jon Inns, product director for Arc, said: “This integration signals an evolution in reliable credential security. Just checking once for the existence of an account password in a list ofms is an outdated and ineffective security strategy. The integration of Arc with Sticky Password means that its vaults can continually and securely check for the existence and sharing of the full credential pair, without any private information ever leaving the application. This integration between our technologies creates a truly unique security combination which is so much more effective and powerful.”

Recent research indicates there are over 24bn stolen username and password combinations on the Dark Web, a number that has increased by 65% since 2020.
