“The topic is especially important and Sqrrl is a clear leader in the threat hunting platform market. The combination of trained threat hunters and the Sqrrl platform makes for a dangerous combination to any would-be attacker."

Sqrrl, the industry-leading cyber threat hunting company, has partnered with the SANS Institute to release a seminal white paper on cyber threat hunting.

The paper is written by Robert M. Lee, a SANS Institute certified instructor, and Rob Lee, the curriculum lead for and author for digital forensic and incident response training at the SANS Institute. It explains what threat hunting is (and what it is not), why it is needed, when threat hunting is appropriate, where it fits into maturity efforts, how to get started and who should do the hunting.

"It was exciting to publish a paper specifically on threat hunting sponsored by Sqrrl,” says Robert M. Lee. “The topic is especially important and Sqrrl is a clear leader in the threat hunting platform market. The combination of trained threat hunters and the Sqrrl platform makes for a dangerous combination to any would-be attacker."

Sqrrl is the security analytics company that enables organizations to target, hunt, and disrupt advanced cyber threats. Sqrrl finds threats that traditional detection tools miss, because it focuses on uncovering an adversary’s Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs) instead of relying solely on simple indicators of compromise. Over the last year, Sqrrl has pioneered threat hunting concepts and techniques and has been recognized as the first pure play threat hunting platform by SC Magazine.

“A lot of organizations are interested in hunting, but are unsure how to do it or where to start,” says Sqrrl lead security technologist, David Bianco. “This paper should help answer a lot of the common questions and help encourage organizations to get started at whatever hunting level is appropriate for their needs and resources."

Sqrrl is demonstrating its hunting platform this week at the RSA Conference at Booth #N4705.
