Threat Hunting

With the number of cyber threats on the rise, more and more businesses are prioritizing proactive threat hunting within their cybersecurity security function. Platforms like ThreatConnect help support this by providing technology to find previously undetected threats inhabiting their infrastructure.

Cyber Threat Hunting Vs Threat Intelligence

Threat-hunting solutions enable Security Operations (SecOps) experts to locate advanced persistent threats that bypass your network’s defenses. Effective threat hunting needs a robust Threat Intelligence Platform with high-fidelity threat intelligence, and automation and orchestration. 

In practice, accurate tactical threat hunting begins with threat intelligence. Your in-house teams share information about potential threats and initiate investigations. Then, they collaborate to identify potential new Indicators of Compromise and the effectiveness of current system defenses. They build on this data to inform new strategies, institute new protocols, and strengthen defenses against future attacks using similar methods or entry points.

Why Your Security Teams Needs CTI for Threat-Hunting

Imagine your SecOps team and automated cybersecurity measures can stop 75% of the threats they face each day. That figure would still leave 25% unaddressed. The chances are high that amount includes very sophisticated attackers who slipped by your perimeter security and are lurking undetected in your systems.

These intruders may hang around for weeks or months, exploring what’s of value. They may take critical data hostage or steal credentials allowing them to access privileged accounts. The longer they remain under your radar and in your network, the more likely they become advanced persistent threats capable of substantial damage or data compromise. As a result, your organization could experience significant financial and reputational losses that take years to recover from.

With an effective threat-hunting solution, you can reduce the time to discovery to limit the potential negative consequences of undetected threats.
