White Paper: Think Offense: Automate the Hunt

EnterpriseIT security strategies, processes, and technology stacks are fundamentally defense-based, requiring known information about the adversary. They depend on prior knowledge of the adversaries’ tools to drive detection and prevention. Adversaries continue to be on offense, targeting specific organizations, identifying attack paths to valuable assets, and deploying customized malware variants, intrusion techniques, and tailored towards organization’s infrastructure.

Security Teams must think like adversaries, actively identifying adversaries without known indicators of compromise, and evicting them before data is exfiltrated or systems are disrupted. This paper explains the benefits of an offense-based strategy and how to integrate hunting into security operations to evict adversaries within enterprise networks.
