"There is no way around ACD!" CTL Computertechnik Lang on the need for a Cyber Threat Hunting solution
by Tina Siering
On behalf of a customer, the IT system provider CTL Computertechnik Lang was looking for a "cyber threat hunting" solution for proactive early detection of attack patterns in the network and quickly found what it was looking for with the Active Cyber Defense (ACD) service from Allgeier secion.
ACD is particularly worthwhile for medium-sized companies that do not have the corresponding internal IT security expertise and the necessary human and financial resources to monitor their systems and networks independently around the clock.
When researching a fully managed service, CTL's management found "no way around" Allgeier secion's Active Cyber Defense (ACD) service. The security analysts act as an external SOC team. After implementing the analysis unit and carrying out the safelisting phase, they took over 24/7 monitoring for permanent incident detection. The fully managed service therefore does not tie up any of the customer's or CTL's own personnel resources. In case of anomalies with an associated need for action, the ACD team immediately provides a complete picture of the situation so that appropriate defensive measures can be taken before any damage occurs. Owner Joachim Lang is so convinced of the advantages offered by ACD that CTL is now an ACD customer itself.
