Press Release

December 7, 2016


Sydney, 8 December 2016.  Huntsman Security announced today the launch of its Automated Cyber Security capability that industrialises threat management using reliable, repeatable processes to decrease an organisation’s time at risk to seconds.

“Dealing with the volume and complexity of threats manually is no longer an option for organisations, the risks are too great” commented CEO, Peter Woollacott.  “Our customers can now automate a number of security functions, including threat verification and resolution to reduce risk and free up skilled security resources to focus on high value activity such as threat hunting and improving vulnerability management”.

The Security Director of an Australian Government department customer said:

“I am blown away by what we can see.  The level of visibility and insight it gives us is far beyond any that we had before.  The team is really focused now on investigating identified threats such as this one and building more proactive robust processes”.

The Huntsman Analyst Portal® Security Analytics capability was developed over 2 years and has been acknowledged for its real-time automated capabilities in Forrester Research’s Vendor Landscape Report: Security Analytics published in November 2016.  Huntsman’s state-of-the-art platform uses a variety of complementary technologies to deliver:

  • Threat verification to eliminate false alarms;
  • Immediately actionable threat intelligence;
  • Automated quarantining of devices engaging in suspicious activity;
  • Pro-active visibility and security management of the operating environment and the network, through vendor integrations such as Cisco’s Identity Services Engine (ISE).

The benefits to any organisation are significant; both at a security operations and a business level. Analysts and risk practitioners get real-time visibility of incidents and relevant supporting intelligence for timely and effective response.  The resulting workflow efficiencies enable security resources to be redeployed in more effective proactive activities. These operational improvements enable the timely advice of threats that require a business response, in seconds rather than days and weeks.
