Attivo Networks® Recognized as a Softshell Vendor

Deception Platform Recognized in the DACH Region as a Top Cybersecurity Vendor

FREMONT, CA – October 31, 2017Attivo Networks®, the award-winning leader in deception technology for cybersecurity defense, announced today that it received the bronze Softshell Vendor Award, which recognizes innovative security vendors that have demonstrated their ability to provide support within the German-speaking region (Germany, Austria, Switzerland-DACH). The merits of this award are also based on Attivos’ strong reputation within the deception technology market and recognition from Gartner as a Cool Vendor.

“We are honored to be named as a top Softshell Vendor,” said Tushar Kothari, CEO of Attivo Networks. “Now more than ever, organizations of all types need efficient and reliable detection of in-network threats. We applaud Softshell for highlighting the most innovative cybersecurity solutions in the DACH region and for recognizing Attivo Networks’ cutting-edge technology as it continues to expand around the globe.”

The Attivo Networks ThreatDefend™ platform uses authentic, high-interaction decoys that appear identical to production assets, attractive lures, and adaptive deception campaigns to turn the entire network into a trap, creating a setting where what is real and what is not becomes unclear to the attacker. Network, end-point, Active Directory, and data deceptions reduce time to detection, while automated attack analysis, high-fidelity alerts, third-party integrations, and playbooks accelerate incident response.
