The Power of eSentire Threat Response Unit (TRU)

eSentire Cyber Talks Podcast Episode 6

About the Episode

Modern threat response requires the ability to collect unstructured data from disparate sources associated with attacker tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) and operationalize global protections – all in a timely manner.

Unfortunately, many in-house security teams don't have the bandwidth or expertise to perform proactive threat hunting, conduct original threat research, and develop or deploy new threat detection rules.

Enter the eSentire Threat Response Unit (TRU).

The eSentire Threat Response Unit (TRU) is an industry-leading threat research team committed to helping your organization become more resilient. This is an elite team of threat hunters and researchers that supports our 24/7 Security Operations Centers (SOCs), builds threat detection models across the eSentire XDR Cloud Platform, and works as an extension of your security team to continuously improve our Managed Detection and Response service.

In this Office Hours episode, John Moretti, Principal Solutions Architect, is joined by Rob McLeod to deep dive into eSentire's TRU team. Topics include:

  • How eSentire TRU responded to VenomSpider, Golden Chickens, SquirrelWaffle, and the Kaseya Zero-Day attacks
  • The specific traits and skills it takes to join the eSentire TRU team and what the team looks for in candidates
  • The Red Queen Effect and when organizations are most likely to experience a cyberattack
  • Why original threat research and curated threat intelligence is critical for security leaders to stay ahead of the threat curve
