Cyborg Security Introduces New Platform for Threat Hunting
HUNTR Platform makes advanced threat hunting a reality by augmenting analysts and solving the inefficiencies of the security operations center
Cyborg Security, a pioneer in threat hunting, announced a new threat hunting content platform that will help businesses grapple with the exponential rise in cyber threats that strike their IT assets and maximize the value of their existing security controls.
Cyborg Security’s HUNTR platform has been developed by a world class team of threat hunting experts to deliver advanced threat hunting and detection content, empowering organizations to move beyond reactive security, to proactive threat hunting. The platform provides advanced and contextualized threat hunting and detection packages containing behaviorally based threat hunting content, threat emulation, and detailed runbooks, supplying organizations what they need to evolve their security analysts into skilled hunters.
Every HUNTR package is developed by dedicated threat researchers from malware analysis and incident investigations and is combined with unprecedented contextualization derived from cutting edge threat intelligence. HUNTR content can be deployed using a proprietary patent-pending technology that tailors the hunting and detection packages to an organization’s unique environment and existing security toolsets.
The platform offers organizations a rigorous, repeatable, and sustainable path to maturing their threat hunting practices without breaking the bank. “There’s no denying businesses face an increasing volume of threats, and that many of them recognize the importance of creating threat hunting teams as part of their Security Operation Center (SOC),” said Dave Amsler, CEO and Founder, Cyborg Security. “However, aggressively hunting threats and curating threat content has historically been expensive and, because it’s an emerging area, organizations have lacked the expertise and talent to support that function.”
Threat hunting is still nascent: according to a SANS Institute study, less than 30 percent of organizations believe they have a mature threat hunting program; however, more than 70 percent of organizations have threat hunting programs, indicating that many organizations are not doing threat hunting effectively and don’t have the resources to mature their existing programs.
“Cyborg Security aims to solve the biggest security challenges facing businesses. Amongst those challenges is an increase in inbound noise, a lack of threat hunting talent, and insufficient context and information to respond to threats. The HUNTR platform seeks to solve those challenges by delivering advanced and highly targeted hunt packages capable of proactively detecting even the most advanced adversaries’ actions, while giving hunters and analysts the context and accuracy needed to take action,” Amsler said.
