Security On-Demand Launches ThreatWatch® Hunt, Advanced Threat Hunting Service

Share:

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Security On-Demand, the provider of 5th Generation Managed Detection & Response Services, announced today the availability of ThreatWatch® Hunt, SOD's proactive, advanced threat hunting service.

One of the biggest risks in performing Managed Detection & Response services is the chance that a system that is compromised is not in scope or sending logs to the provider for analysis.  In addition, networks are constantly changing as new devices are being added and other systems being retired or changed. This creates an on-going challenge for service providers to stay up to date on all continual changes while providing the services.  ThreatWatch® Hunt gives Security On-Demand the ability to go beyond what traditional MSSP or MDR providers can do by analyzing every system in the network, regardless of whether they are sending logs for analysis or not.

Another key business benefit of the service is reducing the "dwell time", defined as the period between an infection and discovery.  By detecting these threats quickly, Security On-Demand reduces the business impact from a damaging data leak or disclosure of proprietary information.

"When your brand is under attack, minutes matter.  ThreatWatch Hunt goes beyond what security protection products can analyze," says Peter Bybee, CEO of Security On-Demand.  "It enables us to look at every device on the network, not just devices we are collecting data from so we see things holistically that don't belong."

ThreatWatch® Hunt blends hunting toolsets with Security On-Demand's proprietary correlation and behavioral analysis capabilities, such as machine learning-based artificial intelligence and supervised learning models that use behavioral analysis of attack patterns.  The security operations team searches for malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs) residing on endpoints and servers using memory forensics (not logs), augmenting log analysis monitoring efforts.

According to Bybee, the SOD ThreatWatch® Hunt subscription service is more cost-effective than deploying additional SIEM log monitoring or client based threat detection solutions.  Not only are those solutions complex to deploy and configure, there is a high cost of ownership to manage, staff, and maintain them.
