More akin to its specialization as a dynamic threat hunting operation, Milton Security is changing its name to ThreatHunter.ai, the company announced in a prepared statement.

One of Milton Security’s founding principles was to make cybersecurity attainable for all business, the company said. As such, the new ThreatHunter.ai name is rooted in the company’s commitment to hunting and mitigating cybersecurity threats in real time — at an affordable cost.

As Eric Cowperthwaite, chief operating officer for the Brea, California-based company, explained:

“Business operates at the speed of the internet. So do bad actors and security threats. Security must operate at the same speed. ThreatHunter.ai is all about moving at the same speed as business and bad actors. Finding the malicious activity when it can still be stopped is critical for successful businesses today.”

New Name Reflects Evolving Business Focus

In 2017, Milton Security introduced its managed detection and response (MDR) service. Today, the company’s new name reflects the company’s continued evolution in the cyber threat hunting space. Correspondingly, ThreatHunter.ai operates an always-on security operation center (SOC) with AI/ML-enhanced human threat hunters.

Evan Tremper, senior vice president of sales, explained how the ThreatHunter.ai name reflects Milton’s evolution:

“I am excited on this next chapter for Milton Security. Back in 2017, we set the gold standard for managed detection and response. Knowing our clients’ needs are only expanding, we’re aggressively growing our cyber practice to meet that need, aiming to continue to bring innovative capabilities that all Milton customers have grown to love. ThreatHunter.ai will once again set the gold standard for others to follow.”

Joshua Sokolowski, director of Threat Operations, added:

“The perfect synergy of AI/ML and human interaction has arrived! ThreatHunter.ai makes simple ‘alerts of alerts’ a thing of the past, putting the most current threat intelligence in the hands of our threat hunters and the tools to effectively assess and respond to any threat.”

Over the course of the next few weeks, Milton’s customers will see a gradual transition to the ThreatHunter.ai name, along with new, “improved reporting, mitigation, response and a renewed vigor in protecting our customers that entrust us to do so,” CEO James McMurry noted.
