Reducing Attacker Dwell Time

How to stop attackers before they can destroy or steal your critical information and IT assets

Detection methods and technologies in cybersecurity today predominantly focus on the real-time prevention and detection of attacks through 24/7 monitoring. What's missing are processes and technology that address detection of threats that evade these systems and persist on the network or connected devices. This type of post-compromise detection has been the realm of reactive incident response, but those that want to be proactive have another option; “threat hunting”.

This white paper examines:

  • Why adversaries are successful in persisting in networks;

  • The limitations of existing security technologies and methodologies to discover threats once they are inside;

  • How hunt technology and processes can work with existing security infrastructure to deny attackers the ability to persist undetected.
