Leveraging Deception for Visibility into Inside-the-Network Threats

White Paper

Despite the increase in awareness and resources, organizations remain unprepared to reliably defend themselves against the cyber attacks they are facing. This proposal examines the challenges of today’s threat landscape and the opportunities to address holes found within the cyber kill chain (attack lifecycle). It identifies how the adoption of active decoy and deception technologies can help organizations better prepare and protect themselves against advanced, targeted attacks.

Organizations are realizing the need to augment their defensive strategy with more offensive measures. These tactics include luring attackers into quickly revealing themselves when they conduct their attack activities and preventing the attacks propagation throughout the network and subsequent damages.
