Cyber criminals can be patient and stealthy and can, despite best efforts, infiltrate organisations with even the most sophisticated cyber defences in place. Then they wait, perhaps gathering intelligence or planting malware, all whilst remaining undetected. The absence of security alerts only means that no detection occurred!
Threat Hunting works on the assumption of a breach.
In 2018 the mean time to identify a data breach was 197 days followed by a further 69 days to confine and eliminate. This results in an exposure window of over 8 months, potentially opening the organisation to data and financial loss, and to reputational harm.
Containing a breach early saves money. Industry research shows that companies that contained a breach in less than 30 days saved over $1.3 million vs. those that took more than 30 days to resolve.
The Tesserent Threat Hunting solution is a proactive service where we protect our clients by actively hunting out, and eliminating, threats before they become major incidents. We reduce the average time to identify and confine breaches, minimising the potential of the incident to inflict data loss and financial harm.
Tesserent security engineers based in our Security Operations Centre and using advanced tools from Palo Alto Networks, provide an advanced solution that radically improves the security for our customers and their critical business assets.
