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.
