Five use cases and key findings published in Gartner research, Improve Your Threat Detection Function With Deception Technologies

Pittsburgh, PA, June 11, 2019 –PacketViper, a leader in external and internal deception technology, and Deception360 were recently included in the new report from Gartner, Improve Your Threat Detection Function With Deception Technologies1 written by Gorka Sadowksi and Rajpreet Kaur, published on 27 March 2019. The research explains deception technologies with key findings and five use cases.

In the report Gartner recommends, “Security and risk management leaders who want to plan their security operations by addressing their threat detection and response function should:  include deception tools as an alternative in any threat detection initiative, as a main tool for small and midsize enterprises or as a complement to other approaches. At the very least, deception tools will offer high-quality alerts via an easy-to-manage ecosystem of simple landmines that nobody is supposed to touch.”

Additional Use Cases of Deception360 utilize Internal and External Deception with Adaptive Response to detect, prevent and respond to threats.

Deception360 Use Cases

The PacketViper Deception360 solution uniquely blends the use of deception internally for threat detection with external deception for threat prevention. PacketViper CTO Don Gray explains Deception360:  “When threats hit a PacketViper decoy, either internally or externally, a series of adaptive responses can be automatically enacted straight from PacketViper and without complex orchestrations. In either case the action can be a selection of adaptive responses including route them to a containerized, dedicated responder (honeypot), block them from everything except our decoys, or send an alert. External threats are kept off of the network and internal threats are prevented from establishing command and control communications or exfiltrating data. This combination of internal and external deception produces practical security results.”

PacketViper is exhibiting at the Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit in National Harbor June 17-20th. Visit booth #950 for a quick demo on Deception360.
