Today’s digital adversaries are more sophisticated and they do significantly more damage to the businesses they impact. Modern cyberattackers also hide deep within digital environments for longer periods of time. This typically gives them plenty of time to study vulnerabilities, and ultimately wreak extreme havoc for unwary organizations.
Deception technology is used to lure or divert digital adversaries away from an organization’s real IT assets. It enables you to deploy traps and lures to reshape the network attack surface and confuse cyberattackers. Decoys mimic legitimate elements of your IT environment—such as endpoints, network, cloud—so the intruder believes he is interacting with the real thing. This gives your IT security team the near real-time ability to study an adversary’s behavior and detect, analyze, or defend against zero-day and advanced cyberattacks.
