Level Effect offers a platform called Recon, an EDR tool designed to combine endpoint forensics with network traffic visibility. Recon was built to observe threat activity on protected internal and external endpoints so it can detect attacker behavior such as malware downloads and lateral movement.

By integrating Recon, Huntress plans to give its platform the ability to respond to malicious network sessions, event logs, and nonpersistent threats, founder and CEO Kyle Hanslovan says in a statement. Level Effect co-founders Greg Ake and Robert Noeth will join the Huntress team to support the initial integration of its technology and ongoing development of Recon software.

Huntress has purchased both Recon and its related IP portfolio; however, Level Effect will continue to operate as an independent business. Going forward, it will provide cybersecurity training for aspiring security practitioners.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Read the full release for more details.
