“IT often can’t do it all. MSPs and MSSPs (managed security service providers) certainly have their place in helping offload work, adding skills and redundancy. We do, however, need to slow down and think before we just hand over the keys to our kingdoms,” according to Chris Roberts, chief security strategist of Attivo Networks, a leading expert on counter threat intelligence.
Security-focused service providers that don’t have a deception strategy, take note: This market is on track to hit $1.5 billion by 2021 and can be the cure to the false-positive blues. MSPs looking to spot malicious insiders trying to move laterally through a network and reduce attacker dwell time while solving for false positives should consider deception technology, says Attivo Networks CTO Tony Cole. The side benefit? A stronger relationship based on innovative use of tech.
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.
