Gartner® Research on Emerging Tech

PacketViper, an innovator in converged OT/ICS and IT cybersecurity, is pleased to announce that PacketViper has been recognized/named as a Tech Innovator in Automated Moving Target Defense in the Gartner® Emerging Tech: Security Tech Innovators in Automated Moving Target Defense Research.

According to Gartner, “Security teams are overwhelmed with having to supply reactive detection and response. They struggle with high alert volumes and false positives. Consequently, there is a high demand for solutions that effectively protect and strengthen cybersecurity. Automated moving target defense (AMTD) solutions make things much more difficult and more costly for cyberattackers. They change the traditional “static” nature of IT environments by proactively and continuously making changes within the environment to confuse, disrupt and block attackers. By introducing variables for the services or infrastructure that change unexpectedly, routinely, on-demand or as a response, defenders can more effectively identify, understand and block attacker methods and tools.”1

PacketViper understands this. That’s why PacketViper includes Automated Moving Target Defense capabilities in our entire suite of products for OT and IT environments. 

According to PacketViper CEO Frank Trama, “PacketViper's Automated Moving Target Defense Technology works differently from other moving target defense tools and technology approaches, with an emphasis on practical problem solving, including threat prevention, detection, and response without complex orchestrations in OT and IT environments. PacketViper AMTD is designed to make cyber-attacks difficult by misleading threats early and often throughout the attack cycle, and by providing a tool that not only identifies malicious activity very early in the cyber kill-chain, but also prevents further progress without requiring complex orchestrations between security solutions. This practical application of AMTD technology reduces the amount of "noise" on the networks being protected and acts as a force multiplier to increase the effectiveness of all other security controls.”
