Do you need more detection capabilities?

Proactively interrogate your environment to cover the gaps

The speed of threat evolution makes 100% visibility, detection, alerting, and inspection of encrypted network traffic an idealistic yet unattainable goal. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get “more”—more coverage, more visibility, and more capability within your tech stack.

Threat Hunting programs enable proactive interrogation of your environment. Using threat intelligence gathered from both internal and external sources, hunting campaigns compensate for the lack of complete visibility across your technology architecture to find adversaries present within your network. Intelligence gained during the hunt is then used to fine-tune or modify existing alerts, and create new detections, and upgrade security controls as needed.

Tuning your technology, integrating your processes, and training your analysts to proactively search where you don’t have the ability to automate threat detection is a critical component of a mature cyber defense program built to outpace cyber threats.

  • Technology: Successful hunting technology stacks include SIEM, EDR, UBA, and a log management source that is easily searchable and indexed. Our service includes technology gap assessment, configuration support, and designed hunting plans tailored to your stack.
  • People: Our experience creating custom, tailored hunts to address industry-specific threat profiles enable us to train your SOC team to be intelligent responders. Well-trained analysts drive successful investigations—hunts informed with high-fidelity threat intelligence and knowledge of the adversary.
  • Process: We design integrated capabilities within the larger cyber defense organization for continuous security program improvement including security operations (SOC), incident response (IR), cyber threat intelligence (CTI), and threat hunting teams.

Threat Hunting Enables Continuous Improvement

Build a team of teams. Threat hunting capabilities are an integral part of an advanced security program and a critical component of a continuous cycle of risk identification. Use the results to integrate intelligence management, mature your program, and enable intelligent responders.

1. Security Operations

Threat monitoring experts collaborate in the SOC to manage alerts and detecting intrusions. High-priority events are handed off for incident response.

2. Incident Response

Incident responders investigate and remediate attacks. Intelligence compiled during lessons learned is incorporated into cyber threat intelligence.

3. Cyber Threat Intelligence

Reverse engineers, malware specialists, and packet analysts process the intelligence from incident response lessons learned to pull out indicators of compromise (IOCs). The IOCs are then used for additional threat hunting.

4. Threat Hunting

Behaviors from the lessons learned and IOCs are used to correlate threat intelligence data against additional OSINT research to create and automate hunts. Intelligence is used to fine-tune or modify existing alerts and create new alerts as needed. New or updated alerts are incorporated in the SOC for continuous monitoring.

Threat hunting brings the cycle full circle to promote continuous improvement.
