Unmasking Cyber Villians

There’s always something new in the world of tradecraft and cyber threats. For small and medium-sized businesses though, these surprises are never welcome. But when you have a trusted partner at your side, you can be ready. See how Cascade Technologies was notified about the presence of a remote access Trojan, and how the Huntress 24/7 security operations team was able to respond before there was any serious damage.

“When Huntress calls, we answer because we know that’s the call that matters. We don’t have the luxury of having team members comb through logs and events all day. We need to be able to focus our attention on other priorities, and Huntress enables us to do that.”

“Huntress isn’t a ‘set it and forget it’ kind of tool; Huntress is set it and know it works, and when it finds something we’re notified. I don’t need to train my team how to look for that stuff—we have access to talent beyond what we’ve been able to bring onto our team ourselves."

Lyf Wildenberg, Co-Founder and CEO

“I sleep better when my clients are being protected with Huntress. Huntress helps us by looking for persistent footholds in a network that antivirus just doesn't catch. We're getting a lot of the benefits of a bigger EDR platform for an extremely reasonable price."
