At Stratus Blue, we exist to give businesses the freedom to be remarkable, and we want you to have the freedom to grow your business and focus on what’s important to you. We understand how important your data and security are to that mission, and we want to do our best to ensure businesses understand their obligations, the risks they may be taking and the ways they can mitigate them.

Cybercrime is the world’s fastest growing industry, and its global scale is hard to understate. Responsible for US$6 trillion of costs in 2023 alone, if it were its own economy, it would be the world’s third largest – and more than twenty times larger than New Zealand. Whether you are a large enterprise or a local small business, there are a multitude of risks to address – but thankfully lots of tools and processes which can help you do this.

Huntress Managed Detection and Response (MDR) is an offering Stratus Blue uses and provides, which can provide significant value to organisations of any size. MDR is installed on devices, typically laptops, desktops and servers, and works alongside traditional antivirus – it doesn’t replace it – to provide a deep level of proactive security through searching for and responding to complex threats that other systems might miss. With Huntress MDR, your device security is elevated from reactive to proactive, ensuring that more issues are anticipated and addressed before they cause a crisis.

Huntress also have a 24/7 Security Operations Center, combining cutting-edge technology and round the clock monitoring with our engineering team in Tauranga, New Zealand. This multi-layer security posture mitigates a significant number of common risks and raises any business taking advantage of it from a clear target to being hard to breach.

Further to this, Huntress MDR provides clear, sensible reporting that tells you what you need to know. We explain what the tools have done, what they’ve found, blocked and acted on, and we provide clear, actionable recommendations that give you everything you need to make informed IT security investments that provide value and peace of mind.

With cyber threats becoming more sophisticated, relentless and expensive with every month that goes by, partnering with Stratus Blue and using Huntress MDR gives your business the team and the tools you need in your corner. In the digital age of 2024, you shouldn’t have to worry about your data or interruptions, and we have a whole stack of products that go alongside Huntress to boost your overall IT position, allowing you the freedom to focus on what really matters: the growing of your business.
