About Attivo Networks
Attivo Networks is an innovator in detecting BOTs and APTs inside the network and data center before the data is breached. Leveraging virtual honey-nets in conjunction with its patented technology, Attivo lures and leads BOTs/APTs to reveal themselves, without generating any false positives. Attivo is simple to set up and does not require signatures or database lookup. The solution is highly efficient and scalable since it is not inline and does not need redirection of traffic.
