It is no longer debated that a prevention only security strategy is enough. Security teams must go on the offense and create an environment that provides continuous real-time detection against an ever-changing landscape of cyber threats, and deception tools can play a critical role.
Deception as a strategy has been used for years in war and, notably, by cyber attackers. However, using deception to address threats that have bypassed traditional prevention security measures is an emerging and additional line of defense. Today’s deception-based technology abandons the reliance on known attack patterns and monitoring, and instead uses advanced luring techniques and engagement servers to entice an attacker away from valuable company servers.
