Overall Satisfaction with Huntress

Huntress leverages their Managed detection and response to help in identifying advanced persistent threats that basic antivirus misses. They have 24/7 threat hunting, when a threat is identified it is reviewed by a real human. An agent is installed on each windows device but it is really lightweight and has no noticeable impact on system performance.


  • Threat hunting
  • Detection of Advanced Persistent Threats
  • Managed Antivirus
  • MDR
  • Managed Detection and Response


  • Pricing
  • Triggered Scanning
  • Overhauling the layout now that new features have been added.
  • Detections that antivirus misses
  • Their price doubled recently so I had to talk to clients about the increase.
  • The ROI is immediate for some clients and hasn't detected anything at others.
Huntress identified fileless malware that was not detected by ESET Antivirus and a KMS activation bypass that was installed on a server.

Huntress is great at detecting and identifying things that basic antivirus misses. Huntress detected fileless malware that was on a server that was completely ignored by the antivirus that was installed on the computer. It also detected a KMS activation bypass that was installed on a server. I would recommend installing it as a second party to verify the findings of the antivirus.
