FREMONT, Calif. – August 1, 2019 – Attivo Networks®, the award-winning leader in deception for cybersecurity threat detection, announced today that IT World Awards, the IT industry’s premier excellence awards program, has named Attivo Networks as a winner in seven categories in the 14th Annual PG’s 2019 IT World Awards®. The company took home Gold for Most Innovative Company of the Year and took home multiple Silver awards including: Security Software – Hot IT Company of the Year, Insider Threat Detection, Intrusion Detection and Prevention, and Milestone of the Year. Attivo Networks was also named a Bronze winner for IT Software Company of the Year and Cloud Security.
The coveted annual IT World Awards recognition program encompasses the world’s best in organizational performance, products and services, hot technologies, executives and management teams, successful deployments, product management and engineering, customer satisfaction, and public relations in every area of information technology. A broad spectrum of industry experts from around the world evaluated each submission and their average scores determined the 2019 award winners.
“Taking home Gold as the Most Innovative Company and Silver as a Hot IT Company of the Year are incredible honors,” said Tushar Kothari, CEO at Attivo Networks. “This recognition is a testament to both the company’s successes and the impact that deception technology is having on addressing difficult security challenges related to detection time and visibility into both external and insider threats.”
The Attivo Networks ThreatDefend™ Platform provides early and accurate detection of in-network lateral movement from human and automated attackers. The solution creates a comprehensive deception fabric comprised of decoys and lures that are interwoven throughout cloud, on-premises, specialized OT networks, and infrastructure. Camouflaged within the production environment, deceptions confuse attackers into engaging and revealing their presence. The high-interaction deception environment provides valuable insights by gathering company-specific threat intelligence, which is used for faster investigations and response automation through its third-party integrations.
“Visibility into lateral movement, insider threat activity, and cloud security all present significant detection challenges for security teams,” said Srikant Vissamsetti, senior vice president of engineering at Attivo Networks. “Receiving awards across these categories is a powerful endorsement of the value that organizations can achieve when they add deception technology to their security programs.”
Winners will be honored in San Francisco on Monday, October 28, 2019, during the annual SVUS Red Carpet Awards Ceremony Dinner in San Francisco, CA.
