Fidelis Deception™ Explained

Watch this short video to find out how this automated deception technology provides a low-risk, low-friction alarm system that helps you dramatically reduce the length of time attackers go undetected on your network.

Automatically Discover and Classify Networks and Assets

Classify all network assets, communication paths, and network activity to profile your users, services, and assets. The result is a network profile that includes all assets including servers, workstations, enterprise IoT devices, and shadow-IT. The profile is continuously adapted as changes occur within your environment.

Fidelis Deception Environment

Gain an accurate view
of your network environment

  • Profile on-premises and cloud environments to classify all assets in the network and their communication paths.
  • Classify all asset types including enterprise IoT devices (printers, servers, cameras, routers, etc.).
  • Discover internal and external activity, web traffic, browser types, and operating systems.
  • Remove blind spots for unknown assets including legacy systems and shadow-IT.

With Fidelis Deception, we’re changing the rules of the game. Now we have the attackers running for cover because they understand that we can find them even if they managed to bypass our perimeter.

Fidelis Deception Decoy

Automatically Create and Deploy Active Deception Layers

From automated discovery of an environment, accurate information is utilized to auto-generate decoys for deception layers. Decoys have profiles, services and activity matching the environment, plus recommended breadcrumbs for placement on nearby real assets to act as lures to decoys. Configuration options are available to customize the deception layer.

Ensure an always up-to-date
deception environment

  • Automatically build realistic deception layers based on accurate discovery profiles.
  • Automatically deploy, validate access paths and advertise decoys on networks.
  • Make deception deterministic deploying breadcrumbs on real assets as lures to decoys.
  • Continuously adapt deception layers with automation for network and asset changes.

Expose Lateral Movements and Reconnaissance

Learn what attackers do once inside your network after compromising a foothold system often from phishing or social engineering attacks. Attractive breadcrumbs placed on real assets are quickly found by attackers to lure them to decoys, interactive services and fake data. Divert attacks from real resources and data to quickly detect and defend against post-breach attacks.

Fidelis Deception Incidents

Early detection of post breach attacks

  • Lure attackers with breadcrumbs on real assets to decoys and services to divert and defend.
  • Invoke fake users within Active Directory showing activity on decoys within deception layers.
  • Detect external attacks and insiders to expose reconnaissance and lateral movement.
  • Learn details of attack paths, resource interests and initial compromised foothold systems.

Alerts You Can Trust

Deception defenses provide a proactive opportunity to lure, detect and defend early within post-breach compromise incidents with no risk to resources or data, or impact to users and operations. Alerts come from deception layers unknown to users and partners resulting in high fidelity with no false positives. The result is a low friction, low risk accurate alarm system to detect post-breach attacks.

Sharper signals and no risk

  • High fidelity alerts come from decoy access, MITM network analysis and poisoned data use.
  • No false positives as deception layers are unknown to users with no reason for access.
  • No risk to data or resources and no impact to users or operations.

Ovum reviews 7 leading deception solutions including Fidelis Deception

"Intelligent deception provides post-breach detection and response to the relentless onslaught of advanced attacks, which use previously unseen malware, scripts, macros, and social engineering, against which traditional security technology is ineffective. Fidelis Deception is at the forefront of this development and should be included in any evaluation of proactive defense technology."
