Adding Advanced Threat Hunting to the PSC
CB ThreatHunter is delivered through the PSC, Carbon Black’s powerful endpoint protection platform that consolidates multiple critical endpoint security capabilities supporting both IT and security operations, including: next-generation antivirus (NGAV) + endpoint detection and response (EDR); advanced threat hunting and IR; virtualized data center security; real-time endpoint query and remediation; and managed threat hunting and triage.
Threat Hunting Powered by Continuous Collection of Unfiltered Data
Most EDR and IR tools on the market collect only a limited set of historical data. As a result, SOCs and IR teams struggle to get their hands on the information they need to investigate, proactively hunt and remediate.
CB ThreatHunter solves this problem by continuously collecting unfiltered data, giving security teams all the information they need to: proactively hunt threats, uncover suspicious behavior, disrupt active attacks, repair damage quickly and address gaps in defenses. Investigations that often take days or weeks can be completed in just minutes with CB ThreatHunter.
“CB ThreatHunter has simplified incident response by allowing quick discovery of both simple and advanced threats, and quickly making decisions to take conclusive actions,” said
“The combination of rapidly searchable, unfiltered endpoint data for advanced threat hunting, combined with an array of prevention and response capabilities built-in to one endpoint sensor is a significant step forward. CB ThreatHunter further enhances our ability to deliver rapid incident detection and response to our global customers,” said
Inspired by CB Response, an EDR market pioneer with more than 2,000 active customers, CB ThreatHunter is a brand new product, built from the ground up on the PSC, offering security teams advanced threat hunting and IR capabilities, including:
More Powerful Search Fields: CB ThreatHunter equips security teams with the ability to flexibly hunt threats, even if an endpoint is offline. With this level of visibility, researchers can see what happened at every stage of an attack with intuitive attack-chain visualizations, and uncover advanced threats, while minimizing attacker dwell time. This insight provides immediate answers with comprehensive behavioral context to stop attacks as quickly as possible.
Enhanced Threat Intel Matching: CB ThreatHunter’s sophisticated detection combines custom and cloud-delivered threat intel, automated watchlists and integrations with the rest of the security stack to efficiently scale hunting across the enterprise. This advanced level of detection allows security teams to proactively explore environments for abnormal activity, leverage cloud-delivered threat intelligence and automate repeat hunts. Additionally, the PSC’s platform extensibility allows developers to create custom watchlists to power real-time detection and correlate data across the security stack.
Elastic Cloud Scalability: CB ThreatHunter is natively built on the PSC, allowing security teams to rapidly deploy and scale the solution across their enterprise without investing in (or maintaining) on-premise infrastructure. By eliminating these costs and processes, CB ThreatHunter enables teams to simplify their operations and focus their energy on hunting and responding to threats.
