Attivo Closes Serverless & Container Security Gaps Through Deception
Attivo Networks, the 2017 Platinum ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Award-Winning leader in deception for cybersecurity threat detection, is further enhancing its portfolio with advanced deception techniques designed specifically to accurately detect and derail sophisticated attacks targeting serverless applications in cloud and data center environments.
Created for the dynamic nature of cloud environments as well as shared security models, organizations can now add a proactive defense across traditional data centers and within popular public cloud platforms such as Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Microsoft Azure, and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Based on their ability to dynamically scale and improve utilization of server resources, serverless and container architectures are rapidly growing in popularity.
However, as with many new technologies, these architectures have advanced ahead of traditional security controls, leaving gaps which attackers can exploit.
These ThreatDefend™ platform enhancements break new ground in threat detection by covering all attack surfaces and reducing cloud security risks from gaps left by legacy enterprise tools. ThreatDefend delivers a scalable deception-based defense for the early and accurate detection of credential theft attempts, in-network lateral movement, and advanced attacks targeting critical servers and databases.
