What is a Threat Assessment?

As threats evolve to bypass prevention technologies and controls, organizations must periodically validate their IT environments are secure and controls are working properly. The challenge with this is that often an independent review is needed to get a clear, comprehensive picture of your security posture including vulnerabilities and possible cyber threats. Bringing in an external partner adds complexity, time, and often many teams don’t know where to begin when choosing a threat assessment vendor.

Another challenge is that traditional security assessments only evaluate vulnerabilities and risks of future compromise, they often do not look at past exposure, vulnerabilities, and risks.

Lastly, organizations must consider that some assessments require a permanently installed agent running 24/7 to detect threats on an endpoint.

Infocyte ASSESS

Infocyte leverages it’s platform to deliver a fast, minimally invasive and cost-effective Threat Assessment that goes deeper than any monitoring or antivirus tool to discover hidden threats.

Infocyte Threat Assessments determine if an attacker is currently active in your network, or has been in the recent past which helps eliminate the gap of only considering future risks to your current security posture.

Infocyte has agent-based and agentless options for Threat Assessments. The agentless option simplifies deployment with no pre-install or permanent software agents minimizing impact to your network.

Agentless vs. Agents

Most endpoint detection tools require a permanently installed agent running 24/7 to detect threats on an endpoint. While agents and agentless methods have tradeoffs, the agentless method is preferred in periodic or one-time assessment use cases by both analysts and businesses.

Minimize Change Management

No pre-install or permanent software agents minimizing setup/tear-down and impact to the network.

Tailored Detection Approach

Most agent-based tools rely on monitoring-only meaning the agent has to be in place during the initial compromise to catch it. This leaves significant gaps when performing an assessment for attacker presence after the fact.

Agents have their own vulnerabilities

Agents can be disabled or manipulated by attackers on systems with root-level compromises. Infocyte ASSESS has found many examples of compromises on otherwise well-defended networks when encountering non-compliant or manipulated systems.

Use Cases

Mergers and Acquisitions

During M&A transactions, Infocyte ASSESS provides buyers with critical technical diligence needed to ensure they are not accepting unnecessary risk from existing compromises. When feasible, a Compromise Assessment should be conducted during the due diligence phase, or at least prior to merging networks.

Cyber Threat Hunting

Many organizations don't have an in-house threat hunting team. It has become common practice for such organizations to periodically bring in security service providers armed with a threat hunting platform like Infocyte ASSESS to hunt for signs of compromise that may have snuck past security controls and monitoring systems.

Insurance Providers

Data Breach and Cyber Risk Insurance providers use Infocyte ASSESS as a pre-existing conditions check, prior to issuing a policy. Insurance providers also use Infocyte as a periodic checkup to validate the insured party is making necessary efforts to detect and report security incidents.

Security Program Validation

Whether they struggle with security or employ best-in-class tools, Infocyte ASSESS can validate the effectiveness of current security measures. Infocyte ASSESS identifies any threats that may have evaded security controls and helps you close gaps and eliminate blind spots.

Post-Incident Verification

A common tactic utilized by persistent attackers is the placement of an alternate backdoor within a network. This tactic ensures that an attacker can maintain access to a network in the event their primary mode of access is discovered and eliminated. After a security incident, Infocyte ASSESS helps verify that no other hidden egress points remain and that the cleanup process was successful.
