Deception

Finalists: Best Deception Technology

Most security experts advise against offensive tactics, or hack-back strategies, to deter malicious actors. But what businesses can do through select product offerings is lure those malicious actors away from valuable assets through technological trickery.

Products recognized in this category automate the creation, deployment, and management of digital traps (decoys), lures and deceits, which are blended among existing IT resources. Hidden in plain sight, these tools are intended to engage and prompt the attacker into revealing their trade craft, tools and techniques, in real-time, which provides the enterprise security teams with the facts to preemptively launch effective counter measures.
