The Home Depot® Receives 2018 CSO50 Award from IDG’s CSO Magazine

The Home Depot® has been named an honoree of a 2018 CSO50 Award from IDG’s CSO Magazine. The company’s growth strategy involves active acquisition and the award recognizes The Home Depot Info Sec team’s successes in establishing visibility into the acquired entities’ networks to proactively understand vulnerabilities that may exist. By creating a scalable security strategy across distributed subsidiaries, the company is able to protect the integrity of networked environments to maintain high customer confidence, customer loyalty, and revenue generation intended from these acquisitions. Visibility and identification of preexisting hidden threats were achieved through the deployment of a Distributed Deception Platform based on the Attivo Networks ThreatDefend Deception and Response Platform.
