The ThreatDefend™ Deception and Response Platform is a powerful security control for an active defense, which changes the asymmetry against attackers with early threat detection and automations for accelerated incident response. The Attivo Networks deception solution takes an innovative approach to detection with easy deployment of traps and lures to create a virtual hall of mirrors, altering an attacker’s reality and imposing increased cost as they are forced to decipher what is real versus fake. The ThreatDefend platform provides visibility throughout the attack lifecycle and accurately detects and simplifies the response to threat activity that has bypassed traditional security controls.

Designed for the most sophisticated human and automated attackers, Attivo Networks deception technology is proven within the mid-market and at global scale by Fortune 500 customers to accurately and efficiently detect threats. High-interaction deception is used to engage the attacker, analyze the attack and create high-fidelity alerts for actionable response. Extensive 3rd party integrations complete the cycle of an active defense with attack information sharing and automation of incident response actions.
