Winner Spotlight: Infocyte HUNT
Here’s a snapshot of the entry that made Infocyte HUNT stand out in both the judges’ and community’s minds.
Infocyte HUNT is a dedicated threat hunting platform built by former military threat hunters responsible for protecting the largest and most targeted networks in the world. It leverages military grade techniques and practices in an automated platform to simplify the hunting process and reduce the skill set requirement for hunting malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs). When prevention and security controls fail, Infocyte HUNT significantly reduces attacker dwell time—the period between infection and discovery—to deny them the ability to persist undetected, reduce business impact, and restore trust in a network’s health.
Infocyte’s unique, agentless threat hunting platform is designed to rapidly assess network endpoints for evidence of compromise without a forensics expert. Infocyte automates the hunting process to improve the speed and efficacy of a hunting program with a unique, agentless threat hunting platform designed to rapidly assess network endpoints for evidence of compromise – without the burden of complicated equipment or endpoint software installations.
Infocyte HUNT gathers system information and scans volatile memory through patented technology with no pre-installation of software or agents; simplifying deployment and endpoint maintenance. Our unique architecture and approach enable operators to scan an enterprise network six times faster than other methods – delivering results in hours, not weeks.
It automates the search for threats and empowers an organization’s internal security teams to hunt without esoteric knowledge or a forensics expert. For the mature enterprise SOC already hunting, Infocyte HUNT enables you to do away with the custom scripts and other one-host-at-a-time DFIR processes you use to validate any suspicious behaviors that your team detects.
Why is this product or service different from the competition and deserves recognition?
- Other companies focus on real-time detection and behavioral analytics, Infocyte’s unique approach scans the endpoints using forensic automation and patent-pending memory analysis techniques tailored to look for actual signs of malware or other compromises that made it past these first-line defenses.
- Infocyte HUNT gathers system information and scans volatile memory through patented technology with no pre-installation of software or agents; simplifying deployment and endpoint maintenance.
- Infocyte HUNT’s unique architecture and approach enable operators to scan an enterprise network six times faster than other methods with no specialized training or forensics knowledge to use effectively – delivering accurate results in hours, not weeks.

Despite the rich data provided by SIEMs, organizations find themselves drowning in false positives, making it difficult to focus on high-priority events. This problem of alert fatigue prevents cyber security teams from identifying and addressing real threats – impacting small teams with no SOC, large enterprise teams with a SOC, and MSSPs overseeing the security for many SOCs/customers.Read More »
In 2018, the U.S. Healthcare Industry Remained a Hot Target for Data Breaches. Last year alone, over 15 million patient records were affected with an average of one data breach occurring every 24 hours in the healthcare industry. It goes without saying that hackers and cyber attackers are finding ways around/through/past security defenses—exploiting vulnerabilities and…Read More »
