illusive networks, a pioneering cyber security company from the U.S., has been selected by SC Magazine as a Next-Generation Security Monitoring and Analytic Innovator in its award-winning annual Reboot ’16 Innovators issue.
SC Labs’ review commended illusive for taking deception-based cyber security beyond traditional honeypots, and reinventing the category. illusive networks’ agentless Deceptions Everywhere cyber security blankets a company’s entire network – every endpoint, server and network component – with information that deceives would-be attackers. When attackers act upon the false information, illusive neutralizes the attack and triggers a detailed breach report enabling security administrators to detect, track and contain the attack in its early stages.
illusive claims to deliver several cyber security “industry firsts” including: Attacker View, – a sophisticated “breakthrough” technology that exposes hidden cyber attack paths, enabling IT professionals to adapt their security strategy to mitigate advanced attacker’s lateral movement; Wire Transfer Guard, a cyber deception technology to protect wire transfer banking systems against targeted Advanced Attacks; and Advanced Ransomware Guard – that blocks ransomware activity at the source host before it gains a foothold in the network.
