Here at Cybergate Defense, we use the latest technology in the Cyber Security industry to help secure IT infrastructure for businesses across the UAE.
Deception technology is a category of incident detection and response system that helps security teams detect, analyse, and defend against advanced threats.
It does so by enticing attackers to interact with false IT assets deployed within your network. The deception approach can give you high-fidelity alerts around specific malicious behaviours, many of which would be challenging to identify by log analysis or a SIEM tool alone.
Deception technology products can detect, analyse, and defend against zero-day and advanced attacks, often in real time. They are automated, accurate, and provide insights into malicious activity within internal networks which may be unseen by other types of cyber defence.
Deception technology enables a more proactive security posture by seeking to deceive the attackers, detect them and then defeat them, allowing the enterprise to return to normal operations.
Deception technology automates the creation of traps (decoys) and/or lures which are mixed in with existing IT resources. It provides a layer of protection to stop attackers that have already successfully penetrated the network. Traps (decoys) are IT assets that either use real, licensed operating system software or are emulations of such devices.
Traps (decoys) which use emulated software can also imitate medical devices, automated teller machines (ATMs), retail point of sale systems, switches, routers and much more besides. Lures are generally real information technology resources (files of various kinds) which are placed on actual IT assets.
