Tony Cole, CTO at Attivo Networks, sits down with FedScoop at the Security for Innovation Summit to discuss how government security has evolved with the introduction of cloud. Watch Now>>>
“Because the cloud is a shared security model, traditional approaches to security aren’t working reliably,” said Carolyn Crandall, chief deception officer at Attivo Networks. “Limited visibility leads to major gaps in detection where an attacker can hijack cloud resources or steal critical information.”
Chris Roberts, an adviser at Attivo Networks, concurs that role-based access control (RBAC) must be enabled for robust Kubernetes security, and adds that many elements of a strong security posture remain relevant in container environments: Good policies, procedures, and controls at the user, application, and network layer; separate and segmentation (including firewalls) where possible; rotating encryption keys; and strong education and integrations among different roles and teams.

A well-polished platform; one of the more mature solutions we’ve seen in this space. Security professionals are clearly recognizing the promise offered by this additional layer of detection, with many new industry segments adapting the deception model to their discrete infrastructure landscapes. Attivo’s ThreatDefend approaches deception at the platform level with a comprehensive collection of dynamic traps and lures that attract intruders to imitation networks, offsite connections, IoT-related endpoints, cloud applications, and point of sale networks.
By: Carolyn Crandall This week, Attivo Networks® announced the release of an enhanced version of the ThreatDefend™ Deception and Response Platform that includes cloud data center detection support for Microsoft® Azure. This capability builds on the existing ThreatDefend support for Amazon Web Services (AWS) and OpenStack®.
The door is now open and the detection outlook is clearer for Azure users that adopt deception-based detection technology through the use of the Attivo ThreatDefend platform. Azure is rapidly gaining adoption as evidenced in Microsoft’s fiscal year 2017 Q4 report, where it cited 97 percent year-over-year revenue growth for Azure, and industry analysts remain confident the Azure user base will continue to increase at a torrid pace.
Attivo Networks® today announced that it has expanded its ThreatDefend™ Deception and Response Platform cloud data center detection support to include Azure deployment capability in addition to existing support for Amazon Web Services (AWS) and OpenStack. Additionally, the company announced its ThreatDirect™ solution, which is designed for remote and branch offices (ROBOs) and can be used for microsegmented networks. The technology removes the need for a local BOTsink™ deception server, reducing cost and eliminating the necessity for skilled local resources. These solutions are specifically designed to address the growing challenges associated with lateral movement threat detection within cloud data centers and the often inconsistent security controls within ROBO environments.
