Attivo Networks® Secures 52nd Award Win with Red Herring Global Recognition

Top Cybersecurity Startup Recognized for Deception Technology Innovation Two Years in a Row

FREMONT, CA – October 25, 2018Attivo Networks®, the award-winning leader in deception for cybersecurity threat detection, announced today that it was named a 2018 Red Herring Top 100 Global winner for the second year in a row. The award recognizes the most innovative and disruptive technology startups around the globe.

The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds from across the globe. The nominees are evaluated on 20 main quantitative and qualitative criteria, which include disruptive impact, market footprint, proof of concept, financial performance, technology innovation, social value, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries.

“This represents our 52nd award win, and it is an honor to be recognized by Red Herring for the 2nd year in a row,” said Tushar Kothari, CEO of Attivo Networks. “As cyberattacks become increasingly prevalent, implementing an active defense strategy is critical to preventing breaches. Attivo has applied its deep expertise to deliver highly accurate and scalable solutions for detecting advanced threats within today’s evolving attack surface, and this award is a validation of the innovation and value that the company brings to the cybersecurity market.”

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. Then, the solution entices in-network attackers with highly authentic looking credentials, decoys, applications, and database deceptions designed to attract adversaries into engaging. Any engagement with the deception environment will result in a high-fidelity alert and collection of threat intelligence. It will also efficiently pick up policy violations from both the organization and its providers. Through the deception environment’s collection of attack forensics, organizations will gain valuable insight into attacker intent and threat intelligence required for blocking attacks, threat hunting, and returning adversary mitigation.
