Deception Technology

We now live in a time where security breaches are commonplace. Almost every week, we hear about organisations being compromised by cyberattacks. Organisations today are having many security controls in place, but the attackers still manage to enter the network.

The primary reason for this is organisations are more focused on a reactive approach rather than proactive. Once the attacker has successfully entered the organisation network, it resides over there for a certain period of time and performs activities like lateral movement, exfiltration of data, etc. Today, organisations need a technology which can detect the threat actors with less false positives. Deception Technology will help to reduce this time to detect the threat actors. The focus of Deception Technology is to prevent an attacker or a cybercriminal that has managed to infiltrate a network from doing any significant damage. The technology works by generating traps or deception decoys that mimic legitimate technology assets throughout the infrastructure. These decoys can run in a virtual environment or real operating systems environment designed to make the attacker believe that they got privileged access to the systems.

Deception Technology is an important requirement for organisations as it is built on the fundamental basis of intrusion detection and will provide a risk-free environment with zero false positives. If you are looking forward to getting more in-depth information about Deception Technology, how it can help to scrutinise the security posture of your organisation and various other use cases, please feel free to reach out to us.
