  • Domain and email watchlist defined for the AlienApp in USM Anywhere.

    This type of watchlist is limited to one domain and up to 10 email addresses. You do not need a SpyCloud account to use this feature. To monitor additional domains and emails through the AT&T Cybersecurity partnership with SpyCloud, complete the form on this page:

  • A valid SpyCloud customer API key used to retrieve breach data from a watchlist managed in SpyCloud.

    When you use the SpyCloud API key method, you do not need to manually add domain or email addresses in USM Anywhere. The AlienApp for SpyCloud Dark Web Monitoring retrieves all domains and email addresses from your existing SpyCloud watchlists.

You can use one of these configuration types to query the SpyCloud database and collect data for breach events for your users' credentials using a default collection job.
