Threat Hunting Solutions

Introduction

The threat landscape is changing constantly, and organizations are looking for common defensive security solutions to prevent the menace of physical and cyberthreats.

According to a 2018 Threat Hunting Report published by IBM Security, 40% of organizations across the globe are increasingly using threat-hunting platforms. Threat hunting as a tactic is quickly gaining popularity, and enterprises are marshaling resources to make the switch from reactive to proactive defense tactics.
