What is Threat Detection?
An emerging category of cyber security defense. Deception technology products can detect, analyze, and defend against zero-day and advanced attacks, often in real time. They are automated, accurate, and provide insight into malicious activity within internal networks which may be unseen by other types of cyber defense. Deception technology enables a more proactive security posture by seeking to deceive the attackers, detect them and then defeat them, allowing the enterprise to return to normal operations.
Attivo deception provides immediate value by providing “eyes inside the network” visibility and accurate detection alerting based upon decoy engagement or attempts to use deception credentials, most notably early in the attack cycle.
For years, attackers have successfully used deception tactics for breaching networks.
They masquerade as legitimate employees, using stolen credentials and deceptive measures to infiltrate a network, all while remaining undetected for lengthy dwell times. Security teams are challenged in that they have to be successful 100% of the time, whereas an attacker only has to get lucky once. It’s now time to turn the tables on attackers and use deception against them. Outwitting an adversary is rarely accomplished without a balance of defensive and offensive measures
Deception brings the offense into the realm of cybersecurity with the ability to deceive and misdirect an attacker into revealing themselves. All, without false positive alert fatigue and the burden of operational overhead associated with traditional detection methods. Attivo stands apart in that the company uniquely empowers organizations with capabilities they cannot achieve with other security controls: the capacity to outmaneuver the attacker, force them to execute flawlessly, and ultimately derail their efforts using their beloved approach of deception.
