FREMONT, CA--(Marketwired - May 9, 2016) - Attivo Networks®, the award-winning leader in deception for cyber security threat detection, today announced that it has been named a Cool Vendor in Security Threat Intelligence, 2016i by Gartner Inc.

According to Gartner, "The boundaries of information security are fast expanding. These Cool Vendors are pioneering new directions and potential opportunities in the security marketi."

Attivo Network's innovative approach to cyber threat detection provides a comprehensive deception platform that identifies, in real time, inside-the-network threats that have bypassed all other prevention systems. Traditional threat detection solutions monitor network traffic and look for suspicious attack behavior based on known signature patterns. Taking a different approach, Attivo provides a non-disruptive, scalable solution that instantly detects the presence of attackers, identifies their intent and provides intelligence to stop the attack. The deception platform includes a wide variety of deception techniques, decoys, and engagement servers, and is designed for user networks, large data centers, VMware and Amazon Web Services (AWS), OpenStack clouds, and Industrial Control System ICS-SCADA environments. The solution is currently in use by hundreds of organizations around the world, including many of the Fortune 500.

"We are honored to have Attivo Networks be recognized by Gartner," said Tushar Kothari, CEO of Attivo Networks. "We believe having our BOTsink deception platform named a Cool Vendor validates our approach of dynamic deception to swiftly identify threats within the enterprise, data center, cloud and SCADA environments. Detection of threats already inside of the network is growing rapidly as more and more companies take an assumed breached security posture and as a result, need the visibility that Attivo can provide them."
