About Attivo Networks
Attivo Networks® is the leader in deception for cyber security defense. Founded in 2011, Attivo Networks provides a comprehensive deception platform that in real-time detects inside-the-network intrusions in networks, public and private data centers, and specialized environments such as Industrial Control System (ICS) SCADA, Internet of Things (IoT), and Point of Sale (POS) environments.
Founded on the premise that even the best security systems cannot prevent all attacks, Attivo provides the required visibility and actionable, substantiated alerts to detect, isolate, and defend against cyber attacks. Unlike prevention systems, Attivo assumes the attacker is inside the network and uses high-interaction decoys and endpoint, server, and application deception lures placed ubiquitously across the network to deceive threat actors into revealing themselves.
