More about TrapX

TrapX changes the economics of cybersecurity by shifting the burden and cost to the attack / attacker, therefore leveling the playing field of cybercrime. TrapX patented technology automatically deploys hundreds / thousands of emulated traps (decoys) camouflaged as your high value assets that attackers cannot avoid.  Every interaction with these traps triggers a stack-ranked, high fidelity, actionable alert, providing deep understanding of the attackers tactics and goals, with the ability to trigger mitigation of the attack by way of our robust, technology partner driven ecosystem. This allows security teams to move from damage control to damage prevention.  TrapX strengthens the security posture of our customers, allowing them to become a harder target where attacks become less effective, more time consuming and costly to the attacker since the attacker cannot distinguish  between a ‘trap’ and a real high value asset.  TrapX DeceptionGrid is the only early detection solution that can rapidly detect, deceive and defeat advanced cyber-attacks in real-time, allowing the quickest and most cost effective time-to-value solution that drops into any existing networks, including agentless coverage for remote employees, with unprecedented integrations options for any scenario or deployment.
