Sandfly Hunts for the Common and Uncommon Threats Against Linux
Sandfly hunts for the building blocks that make an attack work, not on static signatures. Instead of getting on a hamster wheel of constantly outdated signature updates, Sandfly looks for Linux attack tactics and techniques that never go out of date.
Our unique focus gives us the industry leading threat coverage for Linux exploits and compromise detection. Sandfly can easily find common and not-so-common rootkits, malware, and suspicious activity lurking on your Linux infrastructure without the risk of loading agents on any endpoint.
Modular Intrusion Detection and Response
Sandfly is an agentless Linux security platform that constantly hunts for intruders. When threats are found, Sandfly becomes an expert forensic investigator providing specific information on what is happening.
For security and incident response teams, we allow you to write your own custom sandfly checks in an easy to learn syntax. You can custom craft your own threat hunting checks and deploy them instantly without loading any software or updates across your Linux systems.
The modular approach we use means that more detection methods are being added all the time to enhance our capability.
We currently have over 1,100 security and incident response modules designed specifically for Linux, and the list grows each day. Below is a list of just some of the threats we hunt for on Linux.
