About Attivo Networks
Attivo Networks®, the leader in identity detection and response, delivers a superior defense for preventing privilege escalation and lateral movement threat activity. Customers worldwide rely on the ThreatDefend® Platform for unprecedented visibility to risks, attack surface reduction, and attack detection. The portfolio provides patented innovative defenses at critical points of attack, including at endpoints, in Active Directory, and cloud environments. Data concealment technology hides critical AD objects, data, and credentials, eliminating attacker theft and misuse, particularly useful in a Zero Trust architecture. Bait and misdirection efficiently steer attackers away from production assets, and deception decoys obfuscate the attack surface to derail attacks. Forensic data, automated attack analysis, and automation with third-party integrations serve to speed threat detection and streamline incident response. ThreatDefend capabilities tightly align to the MITRE ATT&CK Framework and deception and denial are now integral parts of NIST Special Publications and MITRE Shield active defense strategies.
