Kaspersky Lab enhances threat protection

To enhance the efficiency of protecting against targeted attacks, Kaspersky Lab presents a new suite of services called Kaspersky Threat Hunting.

To help companies detect and analyse advanced threats that have already penetrated the corporate infrastructure, Kaspersky Threat Hunting provides large companies with 24/7 access to the expertise of the Kaspersky Lab threat hunters team.

The suite includes two unique expert services – Kaspersky Managed Protection and Targeted Attack Discovery – designed to equip IT security teams with world-class expertise for detecting and analysing advanced threats and non-malware attacks frequently employed by cyber criminals.

The toolkits used by cyber criminals are also becoming more sophisticated and now include non-malware attacks performed with the help of legitimate operating system tools.

According to the Kaspersky Lab Global IT Security Risks Survey 2017, failing to detect an incident within a week can more than double a company’s financial losses from £344,000 to £916,000.

For companies not yet ready to hire computer forensics specialists, the suite provides an opportunity to outsource the proactive search and analysis of suspicious activity.

Sergey Soldatov, Head of the Security Operations Center at Kaspersky Lab, said: “We shouldn’t forget that IT security is, first and foremost, a process of detecting, investigating and responding to cybercriminal activity.

“Kaspersky Threat Hunting allows IT security teams to maximise the efficiency of this process, providing their companies with Kaspersky Lab’s world-class expertise on the latest attacks.

“This approach makes it possible not only to discover malicious activity that hasn’t been detected by security solutions, but also to increase the effectiveness of incident response before criminals can benefit from their activities.”
