TrapX Security Launches an Army of Artificial Users to Expose Cyber Attackers

The latest version of DeceptionGrid 6.3, enables unpreceded visibility of attacks against devices and users

SAN JOSE, CALI / 05.20.2019

PRNewswire — TrapX Security®, the global leader in cyber deception technology, today announced that it has released version 6.3 of its DeceptionGrid™ platform.

Release 6.3 of the DeceptionGrid platform, which was recently named the Best Deception Technology in the industry, offers creative new ways to combat the most advanced cyber attackers.

“DeceptionGrid is a cybersecurity tool that not only provides highly accurate results but also is non-disruptive to operations,” said Moshe Ben-Simon, CEO of TrapX Security. “DeceptionGrid’s emulation trap technology is also a perfect match for industrial environments and has revolutionized the Cyber-Deception space”

Here are some of the latest new groundbreaking technologies that have been added to the capabilities of DeceptionGrid 6.3:

Artificial Users

Traps (decoys) are now smarter than ever; they can now mimic user activities, while acting like real exploited users. This gives attackers a false sense of a successful attack – when in reality they’re only interacting with an artificial user inside a sophisticated cyber trap. This new cyber trap ultimately exposes hackers and their latest tactics in a safe environment while keeping the organization’s real users and network fully secure.

Hacker Tracker

Hackers can no longer remain hidden with DeceptionGrid’s Hacker Tracker capabilities. DeceptionGrid is now able to track hackers back to their command and control locations by tracking deceptive files accessed from outside the network.

Build Your Own Trap

This powerful feature enables users to create any tailor-made attack surfaces to be identical to the users’ native environment. In addition to this, a new point and click feature allows users to create additional fake instances of sensitive web applications. A broader range of IoT devices are now available to be emulated.

Improved Protection for Rockwell / SIEMENS SCADA Controllers

TrapX Security is in a close partnership with some of the world’s leading manufacturing companies and is constantly creating new generations of cyber traps that can perfectly mimic operational technology devices such as Rockwell and Siemens industrials controllers (PLC). Attackers cannot tell if they’re in a trap or if they’re in a real system since the design and functionality of these controllers are identical.
