Advanced threat actors can blend in with their target environment, evading traditional alert-based security controls. PacSec’s proactive threat hunting methodology identifies and eliminates the most sophisticated attackers to reduce the operational, reputational, and financial risks they inflict.
Traditional cyber threat detection capabilities, such as intrusion detection and prevention systems and antivirus software, are largely reactive and rely on a cyber threat to trip an alarm somewhere within the environment. PacSec’s proactive approach to threat hunting deploys experienced “hunters” who methodically analyze available data to identify anomalous behavior and pick up the trail of previously undetected cyber threats.
Threat hunting identifies and remediates advanced persistent threats (APT) that engage in long-term campaigns to compromise a target’s environment. PacSec’s threat hunters have the cyber expertise required to defeat APTs that evade reactive, rule-based cybersecurity defenses.
Traditional security products like antivirus software and network intrusion detection systems rely on known signature-based detections to create alerts. These tools alone cannot completely protect your environment: They’re unable to adapt to new malware that’s continuously being created. New malware could go undetected, leaving your network vulnerable.
Threat hunting uses a different approach. What attackers cannot readily change are their tools, tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTTP), which are essentially their observed behavior patterns. By understanding how an attacker operates on a target network and what behavior they may exhibit, threat hunters can analyze endpoint data to find advanced adversaries hiding in the network, silently carrying out their objectives.
By combining threat hunting with traditional security products, an organization can achieve a defense-in-depth approach to network security, covering down on both known and unknown threats.
The value that threat hunting provides goes above and beyond the detection of advanced adversaries. In addition to the detection of malicious activity, it provides visibility into your network, confidence in your security posture, and can also uncover:
