How Deception Technology Can Help You Detect Threats Early

Deception is a frequently used tactic in both defensive and offensive strategies, from chess to duck hunting, and a tool that many security professionals have been using for years. Initially, when deception was used in network defense, it involved a human carefully interacting with an infiltrator to make them believe that they had achieved access to restricted data and to keep them occupied until the threat could be contained. Today, however, technological advancements have eliminated the need for direct human interaction and have increased the believability of decoys.

Deception to Compliment Endpoint Detection and Response

Tushar Kothari, Attivo Networks CEO – The threat landscape is ever changing, and defenses need to change with it. Case in point. The days of being able to rely exclusively on perimeter defenses are long gone. We have known for a while that sophisticated attackers were getting through the perimeter and we subsequently learned to expect it. To defend against them we had to harden our environment, and we did that by adding additional defenses inside the perimeter. The evolution of Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) tools was a direct response to the increasingly challenging threat landscape posed by the newest generation of sophisticated attackers. It became another important layer in a “Defense in Depth” strategy.
