Startup Attivo Advocates for ‘Deceptive’ Security Protection
Is it next-generation threat detection? Is it counter-hacking? One thing we know is that it’s designed to lure hackers to a replica enterprise environment so that threats can be eliminated. It’s deception.
“Why does this company exist? It really boils down to that a perimeter-based defense is just not reliable anymore,” Carolyn Crandall, chief deception officer and CMO at Attivo Networks told Security Now. “People can and will get into the network, and over the last couple of years, people are accepting that.”
Crandall is adding her voice to a growing number of experts that agree the better strategy is to accept that penetration is inevitable and therefore the focus should be on protecting the data in the network, not erecting a fence.
