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.
“We welcome Attivo Networks to the BD Product Security Partnership Program as an important collaborator in our collective quest to improve cybersecurity across the health care industry,” said Rob Suarez, director of Product Security for BD. “The Attivo BOTsink solution was rigorously tested and validated by BD to tailor their protection technologies to work with our medical technologies, rather than being introduced as an afterthought.”
Attivo Networks® announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Tushar Kothari, CEO, to its prestigious list of 2018 Channel Chiefs. The executives on this annual list represent top leaders in the IT channel who excel at driving growth and revenue in their organization through channel partners.
Attivo Networks Secures $21M for Deception Technology
Cyber-security deception technology vendor Attivo Networks announced Oct. 11 that is has raised $21 million in a Series C round of funding. “Organizations must know immediately when their perimeter security controls fail and be able to respond quickly,” Tushar Kothari, CEO of Attivo Networks, stated. “Attivo Networks’ deception based detection efficiently closes this detection deficit.”
October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), a collaborative public- and private-sponsored campaign with the goal of bringing attention to the importance of cybersecurity. Awareness of cyber risks and education on how to improve cybersecurity strategies are the most powerful tools we have to combat the growing number of cyber threats each year. The premise of the campaign, which is now in its 14th year, is that the Internet is a shared resource and all online users have a shared responsibility to practice safe online habits at home, in the workplace and in our communities.
By: Edward Amoroso Years ago, I became aware of a cable TV company whose customers were ripping off pay-per-view content. One root cause involved teenagers replacing their set-top box CPU with a test version of the chip purchased from an on-line TTL dealer. Because the test CPU descrambled everything, these clever teens no longer had to squint to make sense of those scrambled images on the Spice Channel.
