Myths and Realities of Deception Defenses

Attivo Networks’ Carolyn Crandall on Value of Deception Technology Solutions

It’s more than a DecoyDoc, and it’s different from “hack back.” The topic is deception technology, and Carolyn Crandall of solutions vendor Attivo discusses myths and realities of this emerging cybersecurity toolset.

In an interview at Information Security Media Group’s recent Healthcare Security Summit in New York, Crandall discusses:

  • What deception technology is and is not;
  • How the emerging marketplace is expanding;
  • Questions security leaders should ask before investing in deception technology.

Crandall is chief marketing officer at Attivo. With over 25 years of experience in building go-to-market programs for security, networking and storage companies, she has experience taking companies from pre-IPO through to multi-billion dollar sales.
