Attivo Networks® Takes Home Gold and Silver at the Tenth Annual Golden Bridge Awards


Company recognized for Groundbreaking Deception Technology Innovation and Awareness Programs

FREMONT, CA – October 29, 2018 – Attivo Networks®, the award-winning leader in deception technology for cybersecurity defense, today announced that the company won two awards as part of the Tenth Annual 2018 Golden Bridge Awards®. The ThreatDefend™ Deception and Response platform earned Gold Status in the Deception Technology category and the company won Silver Status for its ‘Hall of Mirrors’ exhibit at Black Hat USA in the Live Events – Brand Experience Event of the Year category.

The coveted annual Golden Bridge Awards program encompasses the world’s best in a variety of categories, such as organizational performance, products and services, innovations, best deployments, product management, customer satisfaction programs, and more from every major industry. Organizations from all over the world are eligible to submit nominations including public and private, for-profit and non-profit, largest to smallest and new start-ups.

“Attivo is changing the game on attackers by empowering organizations with a proactive defense that sets traps and lures designed to derail their attacks,” said Tushar Kothari, CEO of Attivo Networks. “We are honored that the Golden Bridge Awards is recognizing the company’s technology innovation, leadership, and creative marketing initiatives. This is the 53rd award recognition for Attivo Networks to date and is a testament to the value of enterprise-grade, scalable deception technology.”

Earning Gold Status in the Deception Technology category, the ThreatDefend™ platform works by creating decoys that appear as production assets and by creating deceptive credentials on the endpoint designed to misdirect attacks into a deception environment. The solution entices in-network attackers with highly authentic looking credentials, decoys, applications, and database deceptions designed to attract adversaries into engaging. Through the deception environment’s collection of adversary intelligence, organizations will gain valuable insight into attacker intent and threat intelligence required for blocking attacks, eradicating the threat, and returning adversary mitigation.

At Black Hat USA 2018, Attivo Networks turned its booth into an altered reality experience, so that attendees could experience what it would feel like to be an attacker within a deception environment. The company created a hall of mirrors maze to wander through and interact with various mirrors of deception and distortions of reality. Along with its Silver Status recognition in the Live Events – Brand Experience Event of the Year category, the exhibit has also earned recognition in the 2018 IT World Awards and was highlighted in Exhibitor Magazine.

Winners will be honored on Monday, October 29, 2018 during the annual Red Carpet Golden Bridge Awards Ceremony, in San Francisco.
