Attivo Networks® Scores Three Platinum 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards

Company Recognized for Groundbreaking Identity Detection and Response Technology FREMONT, Calif., Nov. 30, 2021 — Attivo Networks®, the experts in identity security and lateral movement attack prevention, announced today that it won three times in the prestigious 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Awards program.

The Awards Include:

“We are honored to be recognized for our achievements in American Security Today’s distinguished 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program for advances in our Identity Detection and Response,” said Tushar Kothari, CEO of Attivo Networks. “These awards are a clear indication that IDR solutions help enable security leaders to protect identities across the entire enterprise with defenses capable of detecting attack escalation and lateral movement inside the network.”

The Attivo Networks IDEntitleX is the company’s Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement (CIEM) solution, which provides unprecedented visibility for cloud permissions management. Customers gain actionable visibility to cloud identity risks and entitlement exposures so they can address risky entitlements and drift from security policies. With the eruption of permissions happening in the cloud, the awards committee selected IDEntitleX for its ability to deliver a new and critical security control for gaining visibility and managing entitlements to minimize risks and maintain compliance.

Identity Detection and Response (IDR) gives organizations a critical new weapon in their arsenal for continuous detection and response to live attacks. As modern cybercriminals attempt to exploit vulnerable credentials and entitlements to move through networks undetected, IDR solutions play a meaningful role in stopping them, whereas other tools simply cannot. Attivo’s broad IDR portfolio includes the Endpoint Detection Net (EDN) and ADSecure and ADAssessor solutions that implement identity security. These offerings provide visibility to exposures, reduce the addressable attack surface, and prevent and detect attacks at endpoints and in Active Directory.
