Sauron Security is a new startup selected by London security accelerator Cylon, as one of top cyber security startups in 2018, based on their innovative approach and technology. Let us explain.

Pinpointing such threats quickly is essential, but traditional approaches to finding these needles in the haystack often fall short.

Now there is a unique opportunity for more feasible, more effective threat hunting capabilities, and it stems from a most unusual effort: rethinking the approach to crowd source based information.

The simple fact is, infection vectors change rapidly and continuously. Attackers use new delivery methods – everything from social engineering to zero-day exploits – and they often are effective.

Unfortunately, most organizations still focus more of their resources on prevention rather than detection. The primary tools they deploy today include firewall, anti-spam, sandboxing, IPS (intrusion prevention), intelligence feeds, URL filtering, anti-malware, and anti-bot.

These solutions are designed to be in front of what’s left of the perimeter to prevent infection attempts. Once a threat slips through the perimeter, however, the tool can’t see or stop it.


Threat hunting is on the rise

Threat hunting requires a shift to a post-infection mentality and sets of tools such as SIEM (security incident and event management), EDR (endpoint detection and response) and NDR (network detection and response).
