Attivo Networks Wins Threat Detection Solution Provider in 2020 CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards

ThreatDefend® Platform Recognized for Comprehensiveness and Impact in Early Threat Detection

Attivo Networks®, an award-winning leader in cyber deception and attacker lateral movement threat detection, today announced that it was named “Threat Detection Solution Provider of the Year” by CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards. These awards recognize the top companies, products, technical innovation, and people in the cybersecurity industry.

“We are honored to be recognized as Solution Provider of the Year as this award is a testament to our continued innovation and commitment to providing quick and accurate threat detection,” said Tushar Kothari, CEO of Attivo Networks. “Threat detection is a universal challenge for organizations of all sizes and industries and, as attacks and attack surfaces continue to grow in complexity, Attivo’s approach to detection has proven to be a critical security control for disrupting threats early and derailing their attacks.”

The Attivo ThreatDefend® Platform components – ADSecure™, BOTsink®, and Endpoint Detection Net (EDN) – represent the industry’s most comprehensive threat detection solution for lateral movement detection and privilege escalation, providing organizations with a vast majority – 82 percent – of the active defense measures presented in MITRE Shield. The platform proactively conceals and denies access to critical information such as Active Directory objects, data, files, folders and shared drives and can also divert attackers away from their targets with fake information that misdirects them to decoys. With the ability to control the path of the attacker into a decoy, defenders can gather the valuable insights that they need to understand their adversary’s tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs), as well as intent. By collectively preventing an attacker’s access and derailing their efforts, Attivo has been able to demonstrate significant savings in SOC efficiencies as well as breach-related expenses.

The CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards provide a platform for public recognition around the achievements of breakthrough information security companies and products in categories including Cloud Security, Threat Detection, Risk Management, Fraud Prevention, Mobile Security, Web, and Email Security, Firewall, and more.
