Case Study

CloudTech24

Based in Surrey, United Kingdom, CloudTech24 started protecting clients from cybercrime in 2016 with a growing staff of more than 20 employees, award-winning customer service and an evolving menu of managed IT services for companies of any size.

“The main attraction to ID Agent was the ability to quickly validate compromised credentials or information sets that existed on the internet. It was a really easy decision for us to make because what ID Agent was offering was far superior to what other vendors were offering us with similar solutions.”

The Challenge

CloudTech24 did not have viable tools to validate compromised credentials or discover other client vulnerabilities from dark web sources. This limited their ability to see what dangers their clients might face, reducing their opportunity to demonstrate to clients the need to take action to reduce that risk with dark web monitoring and security awareness training.

Goals of CloudTech24 – ID Agent business relationship

  • To increase risk visibility for clients
  • To grow security sales and MRR
  • To start conversations that lead to sales opportunities

“Few clients that we have spoken to have any idea that there is so much information out there. But then, also being able to show them the information, like the first four characters of their password after the search — that surprise, is quite a powerful tool.”
