Cyber security vendor Attivo Networks, has launched enhancements to its ThreatDefend deception and response platform, which is designed to deceive and reveal attackers that have bypassed perimeter security.
The vendor's latest version of the ThreatDefend platform augments its current Threat and Adversary Intelligence gathering by adding Counterintelligence that identifies the types of data the attacker is attempting to steal and, through geolocation services, where the documents are being accessed.
According to Attivo Networks, this information provides powerful insight that can be used to better understand the adversary and strengthen a company's overall defenses.
"While advanced Threat and Adversary Intelligence helps security teams determine how bad actors are attacking, our customers still face a wide range of challenges in understanding the intent, motivation, and attribution of attackers," said Tushar Kothari, CEO of Attivo Networks. "The new Counterintelligence functionality within the ThreatDefend platform directly addresses this knowledge gap by empowering organisations to gather intelligence on targets and intent. This knowledge can then be applied to offense-based security measures and ultimately call checkmate on their attacker."
