Endpoint monitoring

Do you know if your organisation has been hacked?

Is your organisation aware that there may be intruders on the network, hiding in the shadows for a sustained period of time? To remain secure, you need to proactively look for and identify threats in your environments, dealing with them before they cause an issue.

Unauthorised access to systems can linger on for years and is sometimes never detected. This presents an ongoing risk to your organisation. Within cyber security, one area of increased focus is Endpoint Threat Detection and Response (EDR). Essentially, this is the analysis of live and historical artefacts that are present on your systems, to identify evidence of malicious cyber activity.

Why should your organisation consider Endpoint monitoring?

Organisations are increasingly recognising that they may operate in a sector which is targeted by cyber threat actors. This could be due to factors like intellectual property or personally identifiable information (PII) that they may hold – moreover, their susceptibility could even change overnight based on matters outside of their immediate control, such as comments made by employees via social media.

Our blended EDR methodology has been specifically created to maximise the likelihood of identifying evidence of compromise. At a high level, this consists of:

  1. Intelligence-driven detection;
  2. Behavioural analysis; and,
  3. Outlier and anomaly detection.

There’s never been a better time to engage with us to help with your EDR capability.

What questions should you be asking?

It’s good to try and establish your organisation’s endpoint threat detection maturity level.

  1. How do I monitor threats to my systems and data, and do I have the ability to detect threats in near real time?
  2. Does my organisation have complete visibility of the assets we're defending?
  3. Do I have the capability to continuously track cyber threats relevant to my sector and create or curate threat intelligence?

What services do we offer?

Our Cyber Threat Operations team is home to experienced Endpoint Threat Detection and Response professionals who are focused on the identification of malicious activity using a broad set of technology – effectively a team of ‘threat hunters’. 

We have strategic alliances with some of the world's top EDR companies, using the power of real-time visibility into endpoints to detect, contain and remediate targeted intrusions for our global organisation base. We help our clients with everything from threat intelligence to incident response, proactive threat hunting assessments and a range of consulting and integration services within the cyber threat detection domain.

PwC are rated as a prominent ‘leader’ in Forrester’s Independent Digital Forensics and Incident Response Service Providers Report.

How can we help?

We can work with your organisation’s existing technology, but equally we can rapidly deploy our agent technology to your organisation’s endpoint estate to scope the intrusion, provide real-time situational awareness about the systems an attacker is interacting with, the domain accounts that are being used, etc. Moreover, we will design and execute a sophisticated intrusion containment plan, designed to systematically remove the threat actor from your network and eliminate their ability to regain a foothold.

Our Endpoint monitoring services provide you with real-world, practical solutions to meet the strict breach detection and 72-hour reporting deadlines imposed by GDPR. This includes real-time detection and containment of security incidents before they become breaches, while facilitating rapid investigation and root-cause analysis of current and historical threat activity.

We can help you develop your detection capability by licensing our threat detection rulesets. These rules are constantly updated to detect a broad range of attacker tactics and techniques spanning the entire attack lifecycle, including initial infection, lateral movement, data theft, and Ransomware outbreak.

In addition to this, we can help your organisation mature your response process to an event by defining and developing standard operating procedures that are repeatable. Examples include enriching data against threat intelligence, providing additional context into the event through enrichment of data, and pulling forensic artefacts from the endpoint.

We will undertake a short-term, point in time compromise discovery assessment to establish whether any evidence of an active or historical cyber breach can be identified within your organisations’ systems.
