Business Driver: Attivo Networks ThreatDefend Platform
What happens if the prey becomes the predator?
The traditional Cybersecurity approach is to protect against all threats and try to ward off attackers. Another plan of attack is to use threat deception and decoys to provide alerts if and when company resources are being reconnoitred by possible aggressors. Being forewarned allows the attacker to be observed and provides the opportunity for administrators to identify, monitor and discover the targets sought, thereby limiting the potential for future attacks. This technique also helps administrators to formulate policy-based defences based on real-world scenarios and observations. Threat deception technology acts as an early warning system that strengthens defences and prevents successful attacks proactively.
