Huntress Managed Detection & Response

By Michael Scheidler on December 7, 2022 | Tech Corner

Today’s hackers are stepping up their game; they’re constantly finding new ways to infiltrate businesses and dwell in their environments – all without being detected. Preventative solutions like antivirus are crucial but they are not enough. At HIG, we employ multiple preventative solutions. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recommends layers of security solutions that work together.

At Higher Information Group, our Technology Solutions team’s security stack includes Huntress. Huntress enables us to find and stop hidden threats that sneak past preventative security tools. Huntress’ 24/7 Managed Detection and Response service democratizes breach mitigation for the SMB market. Founded by former NSA security analysts, the Huntress software agent monitors computer systems for anomalous behaviors and assigns cybersecurity analysts to important incidents for manual review.  If a threat is deemed severe, the Huntress agent can instantly isolate a risky computer from the network until a remediation plan is constructed. The service is agent-based, so the protection persists while in the office or on the go. Huntress is also able to leverage and extend the capabilities of Microsoft’s Windows Defender antivirus platform by providing a unified management and reporting console.
