Aggra owns and manages a database of over 110 million breached credentials, and has assisted many large corporations in mitigating the risk of compromised email addresses and passwords. “We are excited about the accelerated growth potential that the InfoArmor distribution platform brings to our credentials monitoring service,” said Stephen Thomas, who will continue managing the day-to-day operations of the new subsidiary.
