Detect Threats, Prevent Cyber Attacks, and Automatically Respond
Without Complex Orchestrations

Lightweight Deception

PacketViper deception technology features agentless deception with software-based decoys and believable responses for cyber attackers. Deployed with “point & click” simplicity, decoys can be rotated based on a variety of factors including time, network, business, country or port to confuse attackers and create the appearance of a moving target. PacketViper can be deployed both internally (East-West) and at the perimeter (North-South) creating transparency that can then be acted upon. Only PacketViper Deception360™ offers all directions.

PacketViper Cyber Deception Technology

Heavyweight Results

Game-changing deception technology from PacketViper amplifies prevention, detection, and response both internally and externally. On the perimeter, PacketViper eliminates the attacker advantage of anonymity and can automatically prevent and block threats. Internal detection and response are equally as powerful, preventing data exfiltration and threat communications with command and control. Internal decoys also ensure digital trust with vendors needing to comply with policies while on the network.

Gartner Research Recommends Deception Technology

“Contrary to more traditional approaches to security, where the defender has to be right 100% of the time and the attacker just needs to be lucky once, deception tools can turn this model upside down. Now the attacker has to be right 100% of the time or trip a mine, and the defender just needs to be lucky once and a mine trips.”

PacketViper Deception Shield

Deception360™ combines Internal Deception with the industry’s only Perimeter Deception

Only PacketViper combines deception that is both internal and external facing. Internal decoys are lightweight, easily deployed and highly believable providing a less complex way to amplify threat detection and response capabilities with no false positives. Externally PacketViper creates the appearance of a moving target in front of the network with a dynamic set of decoys that vary based on a variety of factors, effectively reducing attack vectors and making the network much harder to size up for attack.

PacketViper full circle

Active Cyber Deception Technology means prevention, detection, and response

PacketViper is active deception generating automated responses based on both interior and exterior deception without complex orchestrations.  When decoys are hit new threat intelligence is gathered and applied at wire speeds.  Internally data exfiltration and connections to command and control are prevented while vendors on the network behaving suspiciously can be flagged and stopped to ensure digital trust.  Externally threats performing reconnaissance scans are prevented from truly understanding the network or getting the chance to make it to the firewall or clutter up the SIEM.

Deception for Everyone

Deception is a highly effective cyber defense approach that is underutilized because typical solutions are costly, complex and most importantly, don’t go to work until the threats are on the network.  Practical cyber leaders are looking to keep threats off of the network.  PacketViper pushes lightweight, agentless deception to the earliest stage of the kill chain – reconnaissance, to both detect threats and automatically respond.

Think deception isn’t for you?  Think again…

Some in the industry think that deception is only the most sophisticated security teams.  The prevailing thinking is that those without the means to perform extensive threat hunting, forensic analysis, and attribution investigations should avoid deception because they won’t be able to realize the value it can provide.

At PacketViper we firmly believe results count and our deception platform delivers high-impact results that enhance security for our customers. Our agentless, software based decoys, responses and sensors make networks harder to see, keeping threats off and relieving security operational burdens that result from unwanted, uninvited logs and alerts.
