Expert Investigators

Our cybersecurity consultants are expert threat investigators with extensive backgrounds in federal law enforcement, national security agencies, global enterprises, and regulated industries.

As experienced investigators, they know what they are looking for—patterns, anomalies, and things that an untrained eye may miss. They are trained to forensically research your threats to eliminate false positives and document their findings with actionable remediation recommendations.

Full Packet Capture and Network Recording

PacketWatch was purpose-built by and for expert threat hunters.

Our on-premises platform imports your network data into a powerful analytics engine that uses proprietary algorithms and machine learning to quickly identify, correlate, and triage potential threats.

Our consultants can go back in time using packet-level network recordings to research intermittent beacons or historical behaviors of known and unknown advanced persistent threats that often go undetected by point-in-time security tools.

Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Service Providers

Not all MDR providers are built equally. Gartner's recent 2023 Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services warns of vendor-delivered service wrappers (VDSW) that simply offer a managed technology service such as managed SIEM or EDR services.

MDR Core Capabilities

In order to fulfill the true Gartner-defined Managed Detection and Response definition, a provider must have these core competencies:

  • 24/7 remotely delivered detection and response
  • A provider-operated technology stack that enables and coordinates real-time threat detection, investigation, and mitigating response
  • Staff that regularly engage with customer data and have skills and expertise in threat monitoring, detection, hunting, threat intelligence, and incident response
  • Turnkey delivery with predefined processes and detection content
  • Immediate mitigative response by the service provider
  • The ability to triage, investigate and manage responses to all discovered threats

Optional capabilities that Gartner has outlined include:

  • Additional contextual data sources that provide details about security exposures
  • Digital Forensic and Incident Response (DFIR) retainer capabilities, offering remote or deployable staff to carry out deep dive incident and root cause analysis
  • Security assessment and validation capabilities like breach and attack simulation (BAS) to provide clients with guidance on how to improve their defensive posture
  • Hypothesis-driven threat hunting, where clients identify specific threat-hunting targets to determine if a threat actor was to blame, with a focus on users of interest or where privileged data is known to have entered public circulation. Different from threat hunting, which is included in the MDR service definition for known threat techniques.
