Trapx Security Introduces New Collaborative Deceptionnet Community for Cyber Defenders

TrapX Security®'s latest version 6.2 enables security teams to collaborate in deceiving cyber attackers in a new online community.

SAN JOSE, CALI / 10.22.2018

PRNewswire — TrapX Security®, the global leader in cyber deception technology, today announced that it has released version 6.2 of its DeceptionGrid™ platform.

Release 6.2 of the DeceptionGrid platform, which was recently named the Best Deception Technology of 2018, offers creative new ways to combat the most advanced cyber attackers.

“There is no other security solution that yields as great of a return on investment as TrapX deception technology,” said Hank Thomas, CEO of Strategic Cyber Ventures. “I hear this over and over from our customers. TrapX’s focus on world class technology development from their very beginning is what differentiates them.”

Here are some of the latest new features of DeceptionGrid 6.2:

The DeceptionNet Community

Today, cyber attackers are collaborating and exchanging different tactics and tools to fool and bypass security controls and teams. To combat that, TrapX introduces the DeceptionNet Community. The DeceptionNet Community enables cyber-security teams to deceive cyber attackers by sharing deception strategies, new types of Traps (decoys) and third-party connectors to greatly enhance the effectiveness of deception. For the first time, defenders can collaborate and share deceptive counter-measures with each other.

Users who wish to join the DeceptionNet Community, may fill out this form:

Build Your Own Trap (BYOT)

Build Your Own Trap (BYOT) enables creation of fake attack surfaces tailor-made to be identical to users native environments. Attackers can never tell what’s real and what’s fake because each Trap is designed to look and behave exactly like real assets. Traps can also be camouflaged as any specialized IoT and OT devices.

Dynamic Deception

Dynamic Deception enables Traps to shift continuously to create a moving minefield that no attacker can avoid. After a Trap is interacted with and the cyber-attack is thwarted, the Trap will change its shape and location, so the attacker will not be able to determine the difference between the real asset and the Trap.
