Deception Platforms

Deception Platforms are designed to lure in bad actors in order to collect intelligence about the their tactics and intentions to improve other preventative security controls in real time.

These serve as decoy targets within an organization's technology infrastructure. They are designed to lure in bad actors in order to collect intelligence about the their tactics and intentions. Deception platforms reveal the tactics of real-world attackers and how they would navigate and exploit an organization's unique network to identify and exfiltrate data. They are especially valuable to help organizations gain insight into zero-day and advanced attacks. Intelligence captured from attacker interactions with deception tools can then be rapidly pushed out to reinforce the preventative capabilities of other security tools to proactively block these tactics from working elsewhere.
