The Awards Include:
- ThreatOps™ – Platinum Award Winner – Best Integrated Security Management Solution
- ThreatDefend™ Deception and Response Platform – Gold Award Winner – Best Critical Infrastructure Solution
- ThreatDefend™ Deception and Response Platform – Gold Award Winner – Best Intrusion Detection and Prevention Solution
“We are honored that American Security Today recognized Attivo Networks® deception solutions in three critical security categories,” said Tushar Kothari, CEO of Attivo Networks.
“To effectively respond to rapidly evolving security threats, governments and private organizations need access to innovative solutions that deliver early threat detection and accelerated incident response.”
“These wins are a powerful validation of the value that deception technology provides by changing the asymmetry of the attack against today’s sophisticated cybercriminals and by combatting modern Homeland Security challenges.”
The Attivo Networks ThreatDefend™ platform uses authentic, high-interaction decoys that appear identical to production assets, attractive lures, and adaptive deception campaigns to turn the entire network into a trap, creating a setting where what is real and what is not becomes unclear to the attacker.
Network, endpoint, Active Directory, application, and data deceptions reduce time to detection, while automated attack analysis, high-fidelity alerts, third-party integrations, and playbooks accelerate incident response.
The Attivo Networks ThreatOps™ solution accelerates incident response by automating the process to take disparate attack information, correlate it and then display it within one dashboard where attacks can be scored and playbooks created.
The playbooks are then used to create repeatable processes, simplifying incident response.
Through third-party integration with prevention systems (Firewall, NAC, End-point, SIEM), attacks are automatically blocked and quarantined, expediting response actions and preventing the attack from continuing to spread through the network.
Additionally, the solution empowers customers to threat hunt for forensic artifacts in other parts of the network and confirm that they have eradicated the attack.
Designed for efficiency, there are no dependencies on signatures, database lookup or heavy computation to detect and defend against cyber threats.
Attivo solutions capture full forensics and provide the threat intelligence to shut down current and protect against future attacks.
The 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program
Sponsored by ATI Systems, Sharp Electronics, Automatic Systems America and Robotic Assistance Devices!
American Security Today’s 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Awards Presentation Luncheon at ISC East was an overwhelming success, with distinguished guests from National, State and Local Governments, and Industry Leading Corporate Executives from companies allied to Government.
Over 100 professionals gathered from across North America and the Middle East to be honored from disciplines across the Security Industry in their respective fields which included:
- The Department of Homeland Security
- The Department of Justice
- The Security Exchange Commission
- State and Municipal Law Enforcement Agencies, and
- Leaders in Private Security
Recognized for their Innovative Training and Education Programs, Outstanding Product Development Achievements and Exciting New Technologies to address the growing Homeland Security Threats our Nation is facing.
American Security Today was formed after careful reflection of 9/11 and its aftermath when the Department of Homeland Security was established and there was an immediate explosion of new products and solutions for what was perceived as an imminent second attack on primary targets in the United States.
As time moved forward from 9/11 itself and in recent years, the threats to our nation have evolved from a large scale 9/11 type attack to:
- Domestic and International Terrorist Attacks carried out by ‘lone wolves’ and coordinated individuals
- Cybersecurity breach attacks against our government agencies, financial institutions and critical infrastructure facilities
- Unprecedented urban violence
- Cultural shifts and societal media bias, which make it increasingly difficult to secure our nation in this constantly evolving threat environment.
These current circumstances have put forward another rapid expansion of new ideas, products and solutions to combat these ever changing challenges.
These changes have called for a new generation of security experts in the Homeland Security and Public Safety fields who need real time knowledge of our ever growing threats.
These experts include the Government at the Federal, State and Local levels as well as from Private Firms specializing in Physical Security, Port Security, Law Enforcement, First Responders, Military and Private Security responsible for implementing coordinated security measures to ensure our Nation’s Security and improve Public Safety.
Together, each of these entities work together seamlessly on the front lines of protecting our communities, to ‘Keep our Nation Secure, One City at a Time.’
