Building on our latest three blog posts in our series outlining how to manage and reduce your organization’s cyber risk, we wanted to show you how these principles (of reducing cyber risk) apply in a real-world case study. To do so, we’ll quickly drill down into detection and response capabilities that can reduce your overall risk.
Infocyte customers have the capability to identify, isolate and contain threats across all hosts. Response Readiness is a measurement of the technical ability for the organization to detect and respond to a future incident or attack. Infocyte also provides independent evaluation outside of the existing security stack.

We worked closely with the customer’s security team to dramatically lower the cyber risk and overall exposure…
Customer’s Threats Over Time
Customer’s Overall Risk Score Progress

- Customer had good protection tools, but lacked proactive threat hunting and incident response expertise.
- First three months we identified, resolved, and addressed root cause of over 80 threats and/or unwanted applications.
- Organization now demonstrates significantly higher IR readiness and network hygiene.
