Attivo Networks adds response capabilities to deception deployments

With its Deception and Response Platform, Attivo Networks addresses the main weakness of most deception technology, having to rely on other programs to respond to an attack once revealed by the deception network.Deception technology, deploying fake assets inside real networks to trick and catch attackers, shows an incredible amount of promise within cybersecurity as the technology grows. Even as hackers learn to expect that deception assets will be hidden among their targets, deception tools seem more than capable of keeping one step ahead. So long as the deceptive assets are supported with lures and breadcrumbs on production systems to make them look real, attackers will inevitably wander into the traps and reveal themselves.
