BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. – July 20, 2021

Huntress

Citynet, West Virginia’s preeminent, trusted provider of managed technology services, is proud to announce a strategic partnership with Huntress, a leading provider of advanced threat detection and actionable cybersecurity intelligence. This new solution allows Citynet to solve critical security issues for its clients by detecting advanced problems that standard commercial anti-virus and anti-spyware simply can’t.

Hackers use advanced techniques to slip past firewalls and anti-virus solutions, establishing a foothold in a company’s network where they may lurk undetected, waiting to attack. The Huntress solution proactively looks for those footholds and provides easy-to-follow remediation steps. “We provide a layer of security that addresses the most persistent threats,” said Kyle Hanslovan, CEO and Founder of Huntress.

“When you think about providing the layered security needed to protect against all types of threats, Huntress is the missing layer needed when preventive security investments fail. We go on the hunt and find these attackers and we help you get them out of systems,” Hanslovan says.

Citynet knows this new partnership is greatly beneficial for its customers. Historically, the SMB market has been largely underserved by the cybersecurity industry as enterprise-level tools are often too complex to meet these organizations’ unique needs or are cost-prohibitive. Huntress has pioneered an effective and cost-friendly method to protect at a layer that is often overlooked — footholds that are indicative of malicious activity on customer endpoints. By providing expert analysis and actionable insights based on investigation into those activities, Huntress enables IT providers, such as Citynet, to quickly resolve issues.
