Threat Hunting Program in Chicago
On the Hunt for Cyber Threats
Getting new technologies and retaining experienced security professionals are ongoing challenges for many organizations. To identify and react to threats effectively, companies need ongoing cyber threat monitoring solutions that deliver expertise, dedicated resources and advanced technology. We can help. We are local - in the Chicago area.
HALOCK’s Threat Hunting Program continually provides managed detection and response (MDR) for any indicators of compromise (IoC) — giving alerts, blocking improper access and delivering real-time cyber threat analysis. Our goal is to reduce the average time to identify and contain a breach (dwell time) to less than two business days, a reduction of 99% from the industry average of over 200 days.
Manage Risk with Active Threat Management
What is the biggest threats to organizations in the Chicago area? Undetected breaches and delayed remediation. The average time to identify a breach is 201 days, and average containment time being 70 days*. This gives attackers almost a year to complete their mission — which could include everything from data exfiltration to installation of backdoors, ransomware, accessing passwords and/or impacting business operations. Companies must be prepared to handle changing cyber risk as our economy expands to cloud, mobile and IoT technologies.
Take Aim on Cyber Attacks
Establish a proactive system for ongoing protection against threats. Give yourself the essential time you need to take action before you are seriously compromised. Our Threat Hunting Program enables you to:
- Detect attacks earlier
- Contain threats
- Reduce Mean Time to Identify (MTTI) and Mean Time to Contain (MTTC)

12 months of Daily Monitoring and Analysis It’s not enough to know that abnormal activity is occurring in your network — to take effective action, you need to know immediately. Daily threat monitoring and cyber threat analysis tools provide real-time data about ongoing system activity. Your IT staff gets the data to make informed decisions and take instant action.
Weekly Status Meeting / Project Updates The threats faced by your organization change often as attackers look for new exploits and vulnerabilities. HALOCK’s program provides weekly status meetings that offer current activity summaries, details of any modifications made to counter cyber security threats, and recommendations for improving overall network defense.
Daily, Weekly, Monthly, and Quarterly Reporting You depend on reliable data to both evaluate current impact and inform new deployments. Our cyber threat intelligence provides daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly reporting — giving you the source data required to fine-tune security responses and shield against cyber attackers.
Alerting and Incident Response Support Managing alerts and incident response protocols is a critical facet of security risk management, but the significant volume of alerts and response actions needed can overwhelm IT departments. Get the best-of-breed cyber threat monitoring, alerting and incident response support to both address emerging threats and streamline IT management.
Real-time Containment Capabilities and Remediation Guidance Cyber attacks can happen anytime, anywhere. Mitigating their impact means meeting them head on, with real-time containment and protection. The Threat Hunting Program gives your team the ability to contain threats before they reach critical network functions. It allows you to analyze these threats to improve protection moving forward.
Security Resources – Tools, Management, and Tuning The right tools make all the difference in safeguarding endpoints and web-based applications. The Threat Hunting Program provides the threat management information security tools you need to reliably monitor endpoint and application activity, and security resources necessary to take action on detected threats.
