Fremont, CA – Sept. 7, 2017 – Attivo Networks, the award-winning leader in deception technology for cyber security defense, today announced its designation as a Distinguished Vendor in this year’s 2018 TAG Cyber Security Annual for the second year running. The Annual is a practical handbook and reference guide, designed for the working cyber security professional, created from expert advisory research based on discussions, interviews, website material, and other information. The Distinguished Vendor recognition is an exclusive acknowledgement of companies that demonstrate unique innovation in addressing modern cyber security threats.

As a member of an elite group of the world’s foremost cyber security technology companies, Attivo Networks scalable detection and response is built upon its dynamic deception technology and provides efficient detection of attackers inside a network, their identification, and the ability to promptly shut them down. Each member of the collective was hand selected by Dr. Edward Amoroso, CEO of TAG Cyber, to assist with this year’s report, which was made available today for free download at

“The magnitude of the work Dr. Amoroso is doing with his team at TAG Cyber is impressive,” said Tushar Kothari, CEO of Attivo Networks. “It is no minor task to provide expert analysis for such a wide variety of companies and to publish a report that showcases each solution properly and objectively. We are honored to be recognized as Distinguished Vendor among these impressive companies.”

This year’s 2018 TAG Cyber Security Annual was developed to assist enterprise security teams as they modernize their cyber risk program via the following three steps: Exploding the flat perimeter enterprise into distributed workloads; Offloading the resultant applications and networks on to cloud-based, software-defined infrastructure; and then Reloading protections using the best available cyber security technologies.

“Deception is an innovative and efficient security control for detecting attackers before they have time to complete their mission,” said Amoroso. “Attivo stands out to me based on the comprehensiveness of their solution, their customer-proven scalability, and the integrations that automate Incident Response.”
