Secureworks Innovates Its Advanced Endpoint Threat Detection Solution, Powered By Red Cloak™ Technology, to Include Active Threat Hunting
ATLANTA, Ga. — April 16, 2018 — Secureworks® (NASDAQ: SCWX), a leading global cybersecurity company that protects organizations in the digitally connected world, today announced a new service level for its Advanced Endpoint Threat Detection (AETD) solution leveraging its award winning, proprietary Red CloakTM technology. While Secureworks has provided point-in-time Targeted Threat Hunting service since 2013, AETD Elite adds Active Threat Hunting to deliver a comprehensive managed detection, investigation, and response solution that focuses on uncovering cyber threats through a continuous hunting process in collaboration with an organization's cybersecurity team.
The Secureworks AETD Red Cloak service is supported by Secureworks Counter Threat Unit™ (CTU) researchers, comprising a total of 850 years of security experience, always-on Threat Intelligence (gained from visibility monitoring 330 vendor products), and a Senior Intrusion Analyst (SIA) team specially trained to identify advanced threats. The service provides organizations an early warning that their endpoints may be hosting unauthorized intruders. It also provides high-fidelity visibility to validate true cyber threats. This precision also accelerates response efforts by enabling an organization to eradicate cyber threats much earlier in the cyberattack lifecycle to prevent greater impact. AETD provides actionable guidance on how to remediate threat actors with strategic and tactical remediation efforts. As a result, response efforts can be more targeted, more effective and less costly.
The AETD Elite solution offers all of the benefits of the AETD service, plus Active Threat Hunting by a designated team of seasoned Secureworks threat hunters. These threat hunters, working hand-in-hand with the organization's in-house cybersecurity team, continually hunt for cyber threats that have evaded other cybersecurity controls. This adds a layer of human intelligence to machine learning and behavior analytics that helps organizations look beyond electronic logs, leveraging expertise to interpret the business-level risk of potential threats and providing the confidence to take the right action. This close relationship with Secureworks threat hunters provides an organization's cybersecurity team with additional insights that can be applied to improve detections and overall cybersecurity operations.
"We have a proven methodology for delivering threat hunting to a variety of customer environments that we've been refining over the years consisting of purpose-built technology, strategic and tactical threat intelligence, and hard-to-find analyst expertise," said Wendy Thomas, Senior Vice President of Strategy and Product Management. "AETD Elite allows us to expand our point-in-time Targeted Threat Hunting service to offer continuous hunting for our clients. This helps our cybersecurity experts establish a deeper understanding of our clients' environment, resulting in better interpretation of the business risk of potential threats."
"AETD Elite is infused with high-fidelity CTU countermeasures for identifying adversarial indicators and behaviors that have evaded cybersecurity controls," continued Thomas. "Machine and human intelligence, derived from Secureworks' incident response engagements and threat hunting, is continuously synthesized and disseminated to protect all of our 4,400 clients. As such, our threat hunting approach is one of very few available options in the marketplace that emphasizes detecting adversarial behaviors rather than relying on low-fidelity threat indicator matches."
