TrapX DeceptionGrid Recognized As The Cutting Edge Deception Based Security Solution
SAN MATEO, CA — February 29, 2016 — TrapX™, a global leader in deception-based advanced cyber security defense, today announced that the TrapX DeceptionGrid was recognized as the 2016 Cutting Edge Deception Based Security Solution for the annual Cyber Defense Magazine Awards.
The Cyber Defense Magazine Awards recognizes companies and organizations in the Information Security (InfoSec) space who provide unique and compelling value based on their product or service. Awards are judged based on independent reviews of a company’s materials, including data sheets, white papers and product literature, by certified security professionals.
“As the pioneer of deception technology, TrapX is proud to be recognized as The Cutting Edge Deception Based Security Solution by certified security professionals representing the Cyber Defense Magazine Awards,” said Greg Enriquez, CEO of TrapX Security. “The existing threats within an unforeseen landscape create challenges for organizations across all sectors. DeceptionGrid reduces the time to detect breaches from attackers who have already penetrated an organization’s cyber defenses, giving security teams the ability to act quickly to identify the threat and then take appropriate action to block the attack so they can be back to business as usual.”
TrapX’s DeceptionGrid next-generation technology provides automated, highly accurate insight into malware and malicious activity with real-time detection, analysis and defense against new zero-day and other advanced attacks unseen by other cyber defense solutions. DeceptionGrid leverages a network of traps, which are intermingled with a company’s real information technology resources, that provide the ability to analyze the threat, determine its objectives or pull it offline altogether. These traps are identical to real IT assets, representing an additional security layer within the enterprise firewalls that prevents data from being transmitted out of the network and leveraged against the company. Once attackers touch a trap, a high-confidence alert is triggered and the attack can be compartmentalized.
“With a unique approach and highly advanced ability to analyze new zero-day malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs) through real-time detection and defense, we find TrapX DeceptionGrid to be the Cutting Edge Deception Based Security Solution of 2016,” said Pierluigi Paganini, editor in chief of CDM.
In the Gartner research report “Emerging Technology Analysis: Deception Techniques and Technologies Create Security Technology Business Opportunities” (July 16, 2015), analyst Lawrence Pingree writes “Deception solutions are emerging to play a greater role in the future of enterprise threat defense…Detection is often a prerequisite to higher-quality deceptions. However, use of deceit in the enterprise is beginning to be used to actively thwart or ‘black-hole’ malware botnets, threat actors and suspicious connections.”
