Before Demostack

Hunters, a leader in SOC cybersecurity platforms, faced a common industry challenge: extended sales cycles due to the necessity of a Proof of Concept (POC). Traditional POCs, crucial for validating the effectiveness of cybersecurity solutions, often involved lengthy setups, integration complexities, costly setup, and significant resource allocation. This process not only slowed down sales momentum but also introduced risks and uncertainties into the sales pipeline.

The Solution

A new POC motion (Express POC):

With Demostack, Hunters can send a Sandbox leave-behind to prospects avoiding the need to manually set up a custom POC. By effectively addressing the challenges of traditional POCs, Hunters not only accelerated their sales cycles but also improved resource efficiency, reduced costs, and significantly enhanced the customer evaluation experience. Now Hunters can deliver immediate value without prospects needing to wait any time.

Monthly FinOps savings

Companies don’t even realize the amount of money they are spending on spinning up POC and demo environments. With unlimited Demostack Sandboxes at their disposal, Hunters can avoid paying large cloud fees for every prospect.

Presales demo environment autonomy

The dependency on R&D or product teams for demo environment updates has been eliminated.

Presales can leverage Demostack and own the demo environment themselves. This makes everyone happier.

Partners have a dependable demo environment

Channel sales partners now have a secure and predictable demo where they can confidently showcase Hunter’s product in the first call.
