Attivo Networks® Wins Best Threat Detection and Best Cyber Deception Awards from Acquisition International

AI cybersecurity awards

Company Recognized for Technology Leadership and Corporate Excellence

Fremont, CA – May 8, 2019 – Attivo Networks®, the award-winning leader in deception for cybersecurity threat detection, today announced that Acquisition International has recognized the Attivo Networks ThreatDefend™ platform as the Most Advanced Threat Detection & Incident Response Platform in the 2019 Cyber Security Awards. Additionally, the company won a Corporate Excellence Award for Best Cybersecurity Deception Technology this year.

Acquisition International put the Cyber Security Awards in place to honor the companies that have gone above and beyond in this highly competitive sector. As with all of their awards, the Cyber Security Awards are purely based upon merit. To compile their results, the publication’s in-house research team went in-depth to find the industry firms and leaders who deserve acknowledgment for their outstanding performance within the sector.

“It’s an honor to be recognized for both our technology innovation and corporate excellence,” said Tushar Kothari, CEO at Attivo Networks. “The average time an attacker can remain undetected in a network is a significant issue and traditional methods used for detection are just too complex. It is great to see the company’s simplified approach to threat detection and ability to execute be recognized for its collective impact on reducing security risk and cybercrime.”

The Attivo Networks ThreatDefend™ Platform provides early and accurate detection of threats from human and automated attackers. The solution creates a comprehensive deception fabric that easily scales to ubiquitously cover data centers, cloud, user networks, remote locations, and specialized (ICS/IOT/OT, infrastructure) networks. Camouflaged to adversaries, deceptions confuse attackers into engaging and revealing their presence. Additionally, its differentiated high-interaction environment gathers threat, adversary, and counterintelligence for faster investigations and response automation through third-party integrations. Customers are standardizing on the Attivo deception-based solution as a means to efficiently reduce the time an attacker remains undetected in the network (dwell time) and for decreasing the time required to investigate and respond to cyber incidents.
