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.
