Common External Threats

Businesses face high levels of footprint from external threats posed by the dark web and other forms of external exposure. Cybercriminals can exploit vulnerabilities at any moment to cause data breaches, financial losses, and reputational damage.


Exposed Services

Open ports, misconfigured firewalls, and vulnerable applications can be exploited by cybercriminals to gain unauthorized access to your network.


Missing Records

Incorrect DNS records, missing SPF or DKIM records, and other configuration errors can lead to phishing attacks, spoofing, and other targeted email-based cybercrime.

Invalid Chain of Trust

Improperly configured or expired SSL/TLS certificates can expose sensitive information and enable cybercriminals to launch man-in-the-middle attacks.

Leaked Credentials

Leaked credentials are typically found in data dumps and other lists on the dark web and pose a critical risk to employees and businesses if they go unchecked.

Evolving Ecosystem

It’s difficult for small businesses to keep up with their external posture and the ever-changing methods of attack on an on-going basis.

Business Targeting

The dark web is frequently used to buy and sell data targeting businesses and their employees for malicious purposes such as ransomware, competitive advantage, and financial gain.

Proactive External Footprint Features


External Service Scanning

CRM 360 scans for open ports and public exposures to prevent malicious actors from accessing vulnerable and outdated services.


Configured Email Records

Monitor DNS email records to see if there is a missing or misconfiguration of SPF, DKIM, and DMARC to prevent spoofing, hijacking, or disrupting the email service.

TLS / SSL Certificates

Discovering the current use of protocols in public domains and servers enables CRM 360 protocol monitoring for missing TLS/ SSL certificates.


Footprint Assessment Report

Generate a report summarizing risk across a business’s digital footprint based on exposed assets and external attack surface.


Compromised Data

CRM 360 continuously monitors the internet for leaked credentials and exfiltrated data, triggering alarm bells when the keys to the castle are in nefarious hands.


Dark Web Intelligence

Using machine learning tools, CRM 360 scrapes and analyzes dozens of sources that monitor the dark web for malicious activity targeting businesses and users.

How Does External Footprint Assessment Work?


After signing up with a business domain, CRM 360 initiates an initial risk assessment.

Dark Web Results

Results of a dark web scan are delivered within minutes, and issues are triggered to alert admins to the compromised data.

External Surface Results

Results of the public exposure scan are delivered within 3 hours to 3 days and trigger alerts to admins to external surface results.


CRM 360 remediation playbooks enable precise steps for simplified resolution, leveraging industry best practices.

Security Score and Issues

Each business receives a security score based on an overall risk assessment which will be continuously updated according to the issue status from external scans and reflect any new vulnerabilities.
