In-depth defense requires a comprehensive security strategy that includes both prevention and detection technology. Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), accidental or intentional insider, or third party threats all have ways to by-pass perimeter-based prevention security solutions. As most cybersecurity investments directed towards defensive layers, adding inside-the-network detection becomes a critical element to a comprehensive security strategy. As an additional and sometimes a final line of defense, deception provides real-time visibility into threat activity and the forensics required to shut down an attack before an attacker’s mission can completed. Attivo provides a non-disruptive, scalable solution that efficiently detects the presence of attackers, identifies their intent and provides intelligence to stop the attack. The deception platform includes a wide variety of deception techniques, decoys, and engagement servers, and is designed for user networks, large data centers, VMware, Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud and specialty environments such as Industrial Control System ICS-SCADA, Point-of-Sale (POS), Internet-of-Things (IOT) and medical device networks.
