CYBER DECEPTION SERVICES
Cyber deception technology is an emerging tool that can enhance cybersecurity detection and prevention, moving maturity to a more pro-active position. While detection and prevention security tools are useful and provide necessary protection, they do not offer a 100% guarantee that they will detect the sophisticated attacker.
Deception can be addressed in a number of ways:
- HoneyToken deception technology: Fake administrator accounts and files
- HoneyPot deception technology: Seemingly vulnerable devices deliberately placed to attract attackers
- HoneyNet deception technology: Decoy networks seeded with realistic looking devices
The benefits of using deception technology
Using cyber deception as part of defence allows the detection of attackers who have evaded other security technologies and controls. Decoys attract attackers or attack tools to interact with attackers and will alert them when touched. These decoys can range from manually created administrative accounts linked to SIEM to sophisticated HoneyNets that closely mimic the production environment, whether this be in the cloud, on-premise or even IoT and SCADA networks.
Deception technology is low noise and high value and should form part of a mature cybersecurity strategy.
Does your organisation need deception technology?
Existing security technologies play an important role in protecting environments and lowering business risk, however, they are not guaranteed to detect all attacks. Cybersecurity defence has to detect all attacks to ultimately be successful, and defensive technology is generally reactive, only alerting when something bad has already occurred.
If you create decoys within an IT environment you can attract attackers and their tools away from your valuable production IT. These alerts are extremely high confidence but at the same time as alerting your teams to the threat, the attacker is focussed on the decoys, protecting your production assets.
