C announced the integration of

Arc , its real-time credential checking service , with Sticky Password – one of the industry ’ s most wellestablished secure password vaults .
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 . Since its founding in 2001 , Sticky Password has provided secure password management solutions to millions of users .
Recent research indicates there are over 24 billion stolen username and password combinations on the Dark Web , a number that has increased by 65 % since 2020 . Stolen credentials put users and organisations at risk of further cybercrime and fraud .
Developed with support from the UK Government ’ s Innovate UK grant , Arc provides organisations that develop consumer applications with real-time , secure credential leak checks and credential stuffing protection for their users . Using cryptographic exchanges between its data stores and thirdparty applications , Arc compares user login details that are sent or held by an application with Arc ’ s proprietary internal leak information , without the need to send or receive any of the original credentials .
“ This integration signals an evolution in reliable credential security ,” said Jon Inns , Product Director for Arc and Trillion . “ Just checking once for the existence of an account
password in a list of millions is an outdated and ineffective security strategy .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 .”
“ We ’ re delighted to be working with the team at Crossword ,” added Peter Lipa , VP of Sticky Password North America . “ Arc is an extremely robust Dark Web monitoring solution that enables us to provide our users with frequent updates containing detailed information about real security threats . Together , we ’ re creating an innovative way of providing users with actionable data that will increase their online security while preserving their privacy .” u
