As cybersecurity grows more complex each year, users are increasingly at risk:
- 55% of users use the same password across multiple sites.
- With hundreds of companies breached each year, many of these passwords have been hacked and shared online.
- Users are often unaware that their password is exposed and compromised.
- Once a hacker has a user's credentials, they can easily hack into their other accounts.
PasswordPing's core mission is to combat the proliferation of compromised credentials by collecting data on breaches and propagating awareness of what has been exposed.
By making companies and users aware that given credentials are no longer secure, we can prevent a wide range of related maladies: from malware to identity theft.
With years of experience in software and IT security, the team at PasswordPing feel that proactive exposure notification is a critical new layer of defense for organizations to protect themselves and their users.
