Accenture and Endgame have created a threat hunting service for clients, and will be demonstrating how it works at Black Hat USA 2016.
The service is based on Endgame’s hunt platform, and the core to the offering are Accenture’s seasoned global cybersecurity hunters, whose experience enables them to identify and terminate the efforts of latent attackers targeting organizations’ intellectual property, business systems or other key assets.
Clients can benefit from continuous business operation, free from disruption faced by users of traditional security approaches, who are typically under siege for months as they try to identify and remediate sophisticated adversaries.
The managed threat hunting as-a-Service consists of:
- Continuous endpoint monitoring and reporting for targeted attacks that have bypassed defensive security technologies.
- Ability to expose and eliminate active and dormant adversaries that have infiltrated networks, followed by a precise response without disrupting normal business operations.
- An actionable list of vulnerabilities and procedures to remediate and prevent future attacks, reducing the cost and impact of incident response.
“Today, cyber attackers can circumvent even the most fortified of traditional enterprise defense systems,” said Vikram Desai, managing director, Accenture Analytics – Security Lead.
“Rather than building a taller defensive wall, we’re giving our clients the ability to strike first – to stop adversaries before they attack. Delivering this capability requires two fundamental elements: battle tested experience outmaneuvering enemies and specialized technology that gives you an unfair advantage. With Endgame, this is exactly what our hunting as-a-Service offering delivers. Armed with it, our clients spend less time dealing with threats and more time on innovation and growth.”
“Attackers are winning far too often,” said Nate Fick, CEO of Endgame. “We need to compress adversary dwell time by vigorously hunting across the enterprise architecture and terminating malicious behavior before it can get too far. Endgame and Accenture’s joint solution combines state-of-the-art technology with top-notch talent in order to deliver an always on, end-to-end hunt solution that simply outsmarts traditional Indicators of Compromise (IOC) and signature-based tools.”
