Our threat hunters have a passion in dissecting malware or tracking known actor groups and their infrastructure. They can translate techniques employed by adversaries into preventive or detective controls measures. You actively search through large, diverse sets of internal and external data to detect any unknown cyber security threats that are active within Shell based on latest threat intelligence. To close the potential visibility gap, the threat hunter is able to implement new indicators of compromise in our control environment.
