HAWK Network Defense, announced that in a head-to-head evaluation with another incumbent enterprise security MSSP, HUNT Companies selected HAWK.io as their cloud-based big data security analytics (BDSA) platform. HAWK.io provides HUNT Companies and most of their operating companies, real-time security monitoring and rich analytics on all of their core security infrastructure.

Hunt Companies, like most companies these days are faced with the challenge of doing more with less. In this case HUNT Companies needed to focus their efforts on investigating and remediating only true security incidents with very few resources. HUNT was searching for technology that could automate with a high degree of accuracy the creation, validation, and prioritization of security events that would rise to the level of a “security incident”. HUNT’S criteria also included the ability to provide this solution via the cloud as a service so they would not have to invest in any additional infrastructure or security engineers.

HUNT Companies commissioned an independent Big 4 firm to perform red team testing to facilitate a competitive evaluation between HAWK.io and an incumbent tier-1 MSSP. HAWK.io’s rich analytics accurately detected and alerted on 96% of the test activities, while the competition alerted on less than 30%. This independent test validated once again HAWK’S rich analytics combined with artificial intelligence automates the critical thinking required to determine what is and what is not a “security incident”.

“I have implemented most of the SEIM ‘products’ on the market and finally one company, HAWK, has delivered based on my expectations with HAWK.io’s cloud-based, big data security analytics platform. The combination of their technology, processes and people delivers strong value into my Information Security Program. We can finally focus our attention on performing security investigations and remediation work instead of analyzing security events,” said Randy Stroud, CISO of HUNT Companies.

“The HUNT deal further validates our strategy and solution. The industry has needed the ability for artificial intelligence to automate the triage of security events for some time now. HAWK.io’s ability to deliver this solution with great accuracy proved to be a differentiating factor in the selection of HAWK. The fact that we are able to deliver this solution as a SAAS solution in conjunction with rapid onboarding of systems represents the new model in an ever-changing cyber security landscape,” said David Harris, CEO of HAWK Network Defense.
