A well-designed deception system is designed to fit non-disruptively into an organization’s existing security ecosystem. Deception and decoy solutions provide an additional line of defense for networks, data centers, cloud and SCADA environments to address the situations where attackers have bypassed prevention security systems and real-time notification of inside the network threats is required.
Today’s cyber attacks come in a variety of threat vectors, which can include attacks that start with reconnaissance, stolen credentials, phishing or ransomware attacks. Attackers are in general either scanning a network to find hosts with services or applications to compromise or seeking to exfiltrate employee credentials or data. Either way, attackers and their automation tools rely on the responses they receive throughout the attack process they undertake to achieve success in their attacks. Real-time detection bundled with attack forensic analysis play a critical role changing the playing field against attackers. The hunters now become the hunted, putting the power of control back into an organization’s hands.
Privilege escalation, abuse of privileged accounts and data exfiltration represent serious issues associated with insider security compromises. The Attivo ThreatMatrix Deception and Response Platform provides the visibility and detection for insiders, suppliers, and trusted 3rd party organizations that inherently bypass most security controls.
