Mueffelmann. “The Middle East’s proactive security posture has increased demand for solutions that hunt malware in an effort to close the breach detection gap. The partnership allows Nuvias to provide organizations in the region with the confidence that malware and persistent threats have been identified and remediated to prevent and limit damage using Infocyte HUNT.”

“The Middle East as a region is on the cutting edge of cybersecurity.

Infocyte HUNT is designed specifically to detect if malware is present on network endpoints. It scans and detects the post-intrusion activity, active or dormant, of attackers who have successfully evaded an organization’s real-time defenses and established a beachhead within the network. It reduces the breach detection gap – the time that exists between infection and discovery – denying attackers the ability to persist, restoring trust in a network’s health.
