FREMONT, Calif. – May 5, 2021 – Attivo Networks, the industry experts in preventing identity privilege escalation and detecting lateral movement attacks, today announced that its ThreatDefend Platform was recognized as the top deception solution in the Trust Awards category at the 2021 SC Awards. The announcement was made online Monday, May 3, 2021 as part of SC Media’s 2021 SC Awards coverage.
“Disrupting Stage 2 lateral movement of an attack has become more critical than ever,” said Carolyn Crandall, chief security advocate and CMO at Attivo Networks. “The Attivo ThreatDefend Platform provides security teams with the most cutting-edge deception technology that derails lateral movement and privilege escalation with data cloaking and misdirections. These innovations conceal data, credentials, and Active Directory objects so that attackers simply cannot find or access them. We are honored the solution was recognized again by the SC Awards as a security leader in deception technology.”
Now in its 25th year, 2021’s SC Awards were the most competitive yet, with a record 579 entries. Winners of the Trust Award were chosen by a distinguished group of leading IT security professionals from SC Media’s readership. Entrants were narrowed down to a select group of finalists before undergoing a rigorous final judging process to determine the winner of each category.
“Distinct challenges that emerged during the last year resulted in a diverse range of demands from the customer community. A pandemic drove employees home en masse; supply chain attacks left government agencies and businesses reeling; cybercriminals and enemy nation states banked on security gaps during unprecedented times, targeting home networks, health care organizations, and retailers, among many other organizations,” said Jill Aitoro, editor in chief of SC Media. “Winners of our Trust Awards demonstrated remarkable resiliency, adapting to meet evolving requirements of customers.”
The SC Awards are recognized throughout the security industry as the gold standard of excellence in cybersecurity. With the awards, SC Media recognizes the achievements of security professionals in the field, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities, and the vigilant work of government, commercial and nonprofit entities. Vendors and service providers which offer a product and/or service for the commercial, government, educational, nonprofit or other industries are eligible for the Trust Award category.
