Partnership Helps Fuel Increased Demand for Deception-Based Network Security in South Africa
SAN MATEO, CA & JOHANNESBURG — November 24, 2015 — TrapX Security™, a global leader in advanced cyber security defense, today announced that Blue Turtle, leaders in solutions for optimization and management of IT systems, has chosen TrapX DeceptionGrid™ to expand its security service portfolio. The partnership helps solidify TrapX’s growth in South Africa by providing Blue Turtle’s customers with the industry’s leading deception-based technology.
DeceptionGrid automates the deployment of a network of camouflaged malware traps that are intermingled with real information technology resources. If malware touches DeceptionGrid just once, it sets off a high-confidence alert. Real-time automation isolates the malware and delivers a comprehensive assessment directly to an organization’s security operations team.
“We offer a comprehensive network security portfolio of products to our customers,” said Martyn Healy, Marketing Director at Blue Turtle. “But, as we’ve seen in recent months, there’s always going to be some element of risk even to organizations that have bottomless pockets and spend untold millions attempting to build a fortified network perimeter. We are excited to partner with TrapX, as we believe that TrapX DeceptionGrid seeks to offer an extra layer of protection and mitigation that’s been proven reliable in case an attacker does manage to penetrate our perimeter defenses.”
“The fact is there is no one foolproof way to protect an organization’s data against aggressive attackers and crime syndicates. It’s no longer a question of ‘if’ a large organization has been penetrated, but ‘when,’” said Carl Wright, general manager of TrapX Security. “What’s important is a layered security approach that includes a fully-featured firewall, endpoint and deception protection. A properly configured network security stack with DeceptionGrid substantially reduces the time to breach detection and practically eliminates false positive alerts, which is one of the biggest complaints coming out of IT departments today. We are pleased to be offering Blue Turtle’s customers peace of mind that our software will help protect them from the latest malware and advanced persistent threats.”
