12 Big New Network And Endpoint Security Tools From The Black Hat 2019 Conference

New capabilities on the Attivo Networks ThreatDefend Platform monitor available services on production endpoints and redirect attempted access into a deception environment. Every endpoint on the network becomes a decoy and, when paired with Attivo’s deception lures, locks down an attacker’s ability to break out from the endpoint without getting caught.

As a result, defenders gain visibility into the attacker’s tools, the use of malicious software, and attempted lateral movement, and are able to quickly quarantine infected systems. Creating a deception blanket over the endpoint ensures cybercriminals can’t bypass or avoid detection regardless of the attack method they ultimately choose.

Beyond the Honeypot: How Military-Inspired Deception Tactics are Snaring Cybercriminals

Militaries have been using deception for millennia. Cybercriminals use it every day. But cybersecurity vendors are fighting back. Robert Scammell talks to Attivo Networks CTO Tony Cole to find out how military-inspired traps are snaring cyber threats before they get a chance to attack. During World War II, a ghost army fooled Adolf Hitler. A travelling roadshow of inflatable tanks, cannons and airplanes, largely manned by actors and artists, impersonated the Allied Army near the front line. Doing this drew attention away from the US troops, spreading the German forces thin and giving the Allies a tactical advantage.
