The Importance of Threat Hunting & How Arctic Wolf Can Help

Threat hunting is a new breed of security profession designed to discover threats on your network. Threat hunters use technology, skill, and teamwork to find threats that regular monitoring tools miss. With the right tech and tactics, threat hunters can significantly reduce the time it takes to detect and respond to these threats. That's why we support Arctic Wolf: an advanced machine learning tool that analyzes data from all your IT infrastructure systems—including firewall logs, endpoint agents, and more—to identify malicious activity within seconds instead of days or weeks.

Threat Hunters are the Next Generation

You may have heard the term "threat hunter" before, but do you know what it means? A threat hunter is a new breed of security professional who is responsible for finding and tracking down malicious activity on the network. They are trained to think like an attacker, using a variety of tools and techniques that can help them find threats faster than other security professionals.

Threat hunters use their knowledge about how attackers operate. Along with data analytics tools such as machine learning algorithms, they track down attacks faster than traditional methods allow for--often before they even reach their intended targets!

Effective Threat Hunting is Holistic

Threat hunters need to know how to use their tools and technology effectively. As cyberattacks have gotten more sophisticated, the industry has had to respond with new ways of defending organizations and networks. Threat hunters are a crictical part of defense because they can find threats before they cause damage or get into your network (or worse).

Reduce the Time to Detect and Respond

Threat hunting is a proactive approach to security that can significantly reduce the time it takes to detect and respond to threats. Arctic Wolf's cybersecurity experts have experience in the military, government, and corporate roles. The threat hunters are the heart of Arctic Wolf's managed detection & response service because they are constantly monitoring your network for signs of suspicious activity. They identify anomalies within your environment by comparing current behaviors against historical trends and normal patterns of activity. If anything seems out of place, they investigate further until they determine if an attack has occurred.
