In 3 bullets, summarize why this company is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
•Attivo Networks is unique in that it provides all forms of deception including endpoint, network, application, services, and data. The company’s ThreatDefend platform also goes further than others in not only reducing attacker dwell time but improving mean time to respond with a built-in attack analysis engine and extensive native integrations (30+) that empower automated incident response and attack information sharing. Attivo Networks is also unique in that it is the only company to cover all attack surfaces including data centers, cloud, user networks, remote office, IOT, ICS, POS, Medical IOT, network, and telecommunications infrastructure. In addition, Attivo technology is not inline and doesn’t require an agent to deploy on the endpoint. Given its design, the solution is highly scalable and can cross multiple VLANs. There are NO VLAN limitations and the technology supports next-generation serverless data centers. Attivo is customer-proven in large global deployments, midmarket, and has deployed millions of endpoint deception solutions deployed.
•Attivo Networks provides the highest levels of mirror-match authenticity with over 50+ out of the box operating systems, applications, and services to choose from. Additionally, an organization can run its own golden image production software for the greatest levels of authenticity. Machine-learning is then applied to automatically generate deception campaigns, automate deployment, and provide automated operations. It makes managing deception exceptionally simple while maintaining freshness and authenticity. Additionally, Attivo credentials can validate in Active Directory and DNS so that the attacker cannot tell real from fake credentials or decoys.
•Attivo Networks is the only provider with its own built-in attack and malware analysis engine. This is used to automatically correlate, report, and automate incident response based upon captured attack information. Substantiating alerts based on attacker engagement removes false positives and makes response actionable as all the information is provided to efficiently block, quarantine, and threat hunt.

Attivo deception delivers immediate value by providing eyes-in-the-network visibility and accurate detection based upon decoy engagement or attempts to use deception credentials, most notably early in the attack cycle. For years, attackers have successfully used deception tactics for breaching networks. They masquerade as legitimate employees, using stolen credentials and deceptive measures to infiltrate a network, all while remaining undetected for lengthy dwell times. Security teams are challenged in that they have to be successful 100% of the time, whereas an attacker only has to get lucky once. It’s now time to turn the tables on attackers and use deception against them. Outwitting an adversary is rarely accomplished without a balance of defensive and offensive measures. Deception brings offense into the realm of cybersecurity with the ability to deceive and misdirect an attacker into revealing themselves, without false positive alert fatigue and the burden of operational overhead associated with traditional detection methods. Attivo stands apart in that the company uniquely empowers organizations with capabilities they cannot achieve with other security controls: the capacity to outmaneuver the attacker, force them to execute flawlessly, and ultimately derail their efforts using their beloved approach of deception. Does it work? Yes, and we have the detection alerts and pen test results to prove it.
