TrapX Expands its North American MSSP Presence with Deception Technology That Enhances Threat Intelligence and Expands Detection Capabilities
SAN MATEO, CA — December 15, 2015 — TrapX Security™, a global leader in advanced cybersecurity defense, today announced that SecureData, the leading end-to-end cybersecurity managed service provider specializing in threat intelligence, has entered into a partnership to utilize the TrapX DeceptionGrid™ as part of its expanding portfolio of managed services offerings. The union enhances SecureData’s visibility and overall threat detection capabilities, while also bolstering TrapX’s position in the North American MSSP space by providing SecureData’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 broad assessment directly to an organization’s security operations team.
SecureData security services provide rich, contextualized information and analysis to customers designed to inform them about the key threats they are exposed to, or ones they should watch in the future. When leveraged in tandem with TrapX’s deception technology, the combined service provides SecureData customers with an even greater level of next generation threat visibility, allowing them to detect lateral movement and insider based threats. DeceptionGrid technology also further boosts SecureData services by adding a layer of intelligence that is unparalleled in the marketplace.
“The key issues that customers face are understanding if they are at risk of compromise, how to identify when something bad is happening and what to do when it does,” said Richard Enderby, Head of Product Management at SecureData Europe. “Offering a managed security service using TrapX Technology allows us to enhance the actionable intelligence we deliver concerning advanced malware and malicious activity within a customer’s environment.”
“It’s no longer a question of ‘if’ organizations will be targeted by malicious actors, but a matter of ‘when,’ and traditional perimeter and other security solutions are ill-equipped to deal with today’s increasingly stealthy and sophisticated attacks,” said Carl Wright, general manager of TrapX Security. “To combat these new threats, both enterprise organizations and MSSPs need to adopt a multi-layered, next-generation security approach that incorporates deception technology in order to provide actionable insights and greatly reduce time to breach detection. We are pleased to be providing SecureData customers with additional intelligence and visibility aimed at bolstering their customers’ detection capabilities and alerting them to attacks that often fly under the radar.”
