Attivo Networks Takes Triple Honors in 2020 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program
American Security Today’s ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards program is now in its Sixth Year and continues to recognize the Outstanding Innovations of top firms and agencies in the Homeland Security and Public Safety fields.
2020 was a very challenging year for everyone due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the much heralded AST ‘ASTORS’ Awards Winners Presentations and exclusive Luncheon at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC was canceled and rescheduled for 2021 due to the virus.
However, the 2020 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program was again a huge success and many new categories were added including a section for COVID-19 Detection and Innovation.
Attivo Networks (First of Three)
Best Intrusion Detection & Prevention Solution
The Attivo ThreatDefend® Platform EDN suite strengthens endpoint defensive capabilities by detecting and alerting on attack tactics that attackers use once they manage to compromise a system to spread to other devices on the network. The EDN suite helps reduce the cost of the attack and minimizes the personnel needed to respond to incidents.
Built on layered detection technology, the Attivo EDN offering makes every endpoint a decoy designed to disrupt an attacker’s ability to break out and further infiltrate the network.
It does this without requiring agents on the endpoint or causing disruption to regular network operations. Attivo used historical attack data and the MITRE ATT&CK framework as a way to understand the various methods attackers use to spread laterally from an endpoint.
The company then created a comprehensive solution designed to increase MITRE Security Assessment scores and to detect and stop unwanted intruders quickly.
The Endpoint Detection Net solution elevates security control by accurately raising alerts and taking proactive measures to derail attackers.
Of particular interest are the many EPP/EDR partners that the solution integrates with that can block an infected system to prevent further compromises, such as McAfee, Crowdstrike, Forescout, and many more. The platform adds visibility and detection to existing security solutions, and the partner integrations enhance and accelerate investigations and incident response.
The EDN solution also enhances current EPP and EDR solutions by adding coverage for attack tactics, techniques, and procedures that bypass existing controls. While EPP and EDR work to prevent a compromise, if the attacker does succeed, the EDN solution is there to keep the attacker from laterally moving while remaining undetected.
Attivo Networks (Second of Three)
Best IT Threat Intel Solution
The Attivo Networks ThreatDefend® platform is a comprehensive detection solution for attack activities inside the network that offers in-network visibility and detection for on-premises, cloud, and remote locations across all attack surfaces and against any attack vector.
It detects lateral movement activity such as discovery and reconnaissance, port and service scans, data gathering from Active Directory, Man-in-the-Middle attacks, credential theft and reuse, and mapped share traversal.
The platform does this by deploying network, endpoint, application, data, and AD decoys and deceptive assets to create a fabric that misdirects and misinforms attackers.
The decoys record all attack activity while alerting security teams to the attack, reducing investigation and response times while capturing network, memory, and disk forensic data for intelligence development.
With the forensic capture of all attack data on the decoys, organizations gain robust data to develop threat intelligence for attacks that are targeting them specifically.
The platform includes analysis and filtering tools that correlate the attack data in chronological order and can display the attack in a graphical replay.
The ThreatDefend platform includes the Informer dashboard to accelerate investigations. The Informer dashboard correlates all information about a single in-network attack source and displays it in a simple, easy to use interface.
The readout includes the details about the system (such as system name, IP address, logged on user, etc.), a timeline view, and the events originating from the system in reverse chronological order that includes all event data.
Additionally, the dashboard shows first, second, and third-order hops from the system based on stored credentials and misconfigurations, and a means to initiate a partner integration to isolate the endpoint.
It even includes direct links to any forensic files and data captured by the decoys for quick downloads, such as packet capture files, malware analysis reports, memory forensics analysis, and the data and binary files themselves.
This dashboard aids in analysis and investigations by putting all the details the investigator would need in a single source, fully correlated, and ready to action.
Few providers can offer network, disk, and memory forensic capture at the time of the attack, coupled with the correlation of all event data and forensic evidence to create adversary intelligence to such a degree.

Attivo Networks (Third of Three)
Best Privileged Access Security Solution
Inherently, there is no ideal way to secure Active Directory environments, however, the Attivo Networks ADSecure solution dramatically reduces risk by hiding real AD objects and returning fake data to an attacker, which, if used, diverts the attacker to a decoy environment.
When deployed as part of the Attivo Networks ThreatDefend® Platform, defenders can gather adversary intelligence as the solution redirects queries and activities into the decoy environment. They now gain the ability to collect and take action on company-centric threat intelligence.
The ADSecure solution is truly a revolutionary way to protect against successful Active Directory attacks, without interfering with production AD operations, requiring logs, or complex rights and permissions management.
Additionally, one of the best things about deployment is that one doesn’t have to touch or alter production Active Directory controllers for it to work. Implementation is exceptionally straightforward, with the majority of the setup time spent on strategy for how in-depth one wants to make the fake ADSecure environment and information.
ADSecure can be deployed as a standalone product or easily installed as an add-on license to the ThreatDefend Platform.
This method of prevention is an invaluable deterrent as attackers can no longer trust what they see or the tools they rely on.
*Attivo Networks is also a Returning Premier Sponsor of the 2020 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, and a Multi-Platinum Award Winner in the 2019, 2018 and 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program.
