Attivo Networks® Named to Fast Company’s Inaugural List of 50 Best Workplaces for Innovators
Deception Technology Cybersecurity Company Ranked Among Top Global Industry Leaders for its Workplace Programs
Fremont, CA, August 6, 2019 – Attivo Networks® today announced it has been recognized by Fast Company in its first-ever Best Workplaces for Innovators list honoring businesses and organizations that demonstrate a deep commitment to encouraging innovation at all levels.
Developed in collaboration with Accenture, the 2019 Best Workplaces for Innovators showcases 50 winners from a variety of industries, including biotech, consumer packaged goods, financial services, cybersecurity, and engineering. Fast Company editors and Accenture researchers each independently scored 362 applications and then merged the scores to determine sixty finalists. A panel of eight distinguished judges reviewed and recommended the final top 50 companies. The 2019 award winners are featured workplaces from around the world with 8 of the honorees based outside the U.S.
“We are extremely honored to be recognized by Fast Company among such an impressive list of tech industry giants and household brand names,” said Tushar Kothari, CEO at Attivo Networks. “Being innovative is at the core of the company’s culture and has empowered employees across all job functions to think differently, challenge the norm, and achieve great things both personally and professionally.”
“The company’s engineering team is encouraged and incentivized to think outside the box,” said Venu Vissamsetty, vice president of security research at Attivo Networks. “This has resulted in many product innovations that not only address key customer challenges associated with high-fidelity cyber threat detection, but also uniquely deliver a product that is unequaled by anything previously available on the market.”
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.
“Other titles catalog perquisites and benefits. Fast Company seeks to highlight workplaces that attract and retain the best talent by creating environments where employees are empowered to put forth bold ideas, engage in radical experiments, and even fail, in the name of innovation,” says Stephanie Mehta, editor-in-chief of Fast Company.
