Attivo Networks, announced the results of a new research report conducted with Kevin Fiscus of Deceptive Defense, Cyber Deception Reduces Breach Costs & Increases SOC Efficiency. The paper identifies the direct and measurable financial and productivity benefits of deception technology for organizations of all types and sizes.
The report reveals that companies utilizing cyber detection reduce data breach-related costs by over 51% as compared to organizations that do not deploy deception technology. The research also indicates that the average reduction in data breach costs is $1.98 million per incident or $75.12 per compromised record. The cost reductions are based on factors of faster detection and response, effective incident response and reduced incident handling complexity.
