Security-focused service providers that don’t have a deception strategy, take note: This market is on track to hit $1.5 billion by 2021 and can be the cure to the false-positive blues.
MSPs looking to spot malicious insiders trying to move laterally through a network and reduce attacker dwell time while solving for false positives should consider deception technology, says Attivo Networks CTO Tony Cole. The side benefit? A stronger relationship based on innovative use of tech.
“A layered deception service across a customer’s enterprise is innovative and provides enormous value by quickly detecting malicious actors inside the wire and therefore, shrinking the attackers’ dwell time,” says Cole.
Today’s deception decoys aren’t your father’s honeypots: They are realistic enough to fool attackers and may be deployed at scale in cloud-based data stores, on endpoints, even in IoT networks and point-of-sale systems.
