Attivo Networks raises $21 million to thwart cyberattacks using the art of deception

Attivo Networks, a startup that specializes in thwarting cyberattacks using deception technology, has raised $21 million in a series C round of funding. The round was led by Trident Capital Cybersecurity, with participation from eBay founder Pierre Omidyar’s VC firm Omidyar Technology Ventures and Bain Capital Ventures.

Founded out of Fremont, California in 2011, Attivo is one of a number of cybersecurity startups in the deception technology realm, using defensive “hall of mirrors” techniques that consist of lures and traps designed to trick attackers into revealing themselves. In effect, the underlying technology automatically sets decoys that are integrated into a company’s existing IT infrastructure to confuse and misdirect any hackers that may have already infiltrated the network.
