Targeted Threat Hunting
Cyber threat hunting is the process of proactively searching across networks and endpoints to identify threats that evade existing security controls. This differs from penetration or pen testing, which looks for vulnerabilities that an attacker could use to get inside a network.
Our threat hunters are highly skilled cybersecurity professionals tasked with performing pro-active threat intelligence gathering. Using a combination of manual and machine assisted techniques, our threat hunters will search for indicators of compromise (IOCs) throughout your company’s digital environment. These services will enhance your company’s compliance obligations, mitigate potential data loss and protect your brand and reputation.
What Is Threat Hunting?Targeted threat hunting is a return to one of the basic tenets of information security; reviewing your digital environment for signs of malicious activity and operational deficiencies. With target threat hunting, you can answer the question, “have we been compromised?”. Highly motivated threat actors continue to evolve their Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTPs) to better evade traditional defences and hide in the noise of your digital environment. Companies must therefore evolve their defences and mature beyond traditional defences, whilst maximising their visibility to incorporate proactive detection methodologies. Our proactive and targeted threat hunting will reveal potential internal or external threats to your business. Unstructured or layered cybersecurity can often create gaps that threat actors can exploit to compromise your organisation. Targeted Threat Hunting validates security controls and reduces “dwell time” of threat actors within your environment.
Enhance Threat Visibility
Our experienced security engineers and intelligence analysts work collaboratively as active threat hunters to comb through vast amounts of data to identify measurable traces left behind by a compromise. They deliver a comprehensive analysis of your digital environment, combining human driven and machine learnt behaviours to expose the indicators that are left behind following a compromise.
By monitoring and responding to network events as well as activity on individual hosts, threat hunting significantly improves threat visibility. This enables hunt teams to identify unknown threats, as well as perform the forensic analysis needed to understand and break the kill chain of attacks.
By investing time and effort into threat hunting, you greatly increase your visibility into your network, which in turn enables faster identification of a compromise and significantly reduces the potential damage to your company.
