News | 18.12.2017

TrapX Security, a global leader in deception-based advanced cyber security defense, today announced that it has released version 6.1 of its DeceptionGrid™ platform. Release 6.1 offers comprehensive support for internet of things (IoT) devices. New capabilities include specialized deception Traps for attackers targeting print/copier servers, security cameras, and smart lighting.


DeceptionGrid 6.1 was created to answer critical questions important in today’s high risk environment. How do you know if an attacker has penetrated your network? How can you identify them quickly? What are their intentions? How quickly can you stop an attack and return to normal operations? How can you prevent them from successfully targeting and compromising IoT devices which are unprotected by standard cyber defense software?


DeceptionGrid 6.1 brings the widest breadth and depth of deception capabilities designed to deceive, detect and defeat attackers throughout all stages of a breach. DeceptionGrid is designed to identify and bring the attack to an end sooner, reducing the time to breach detection and minimizing or eliminating the risk to intellectual property, IT assets, critical infrastructure, and business operations.


“As a financial institution, keeping up with the latest cyber-security threats is paramount to us. We investigated the use of deception technology as a way to augment the investments we have already made in endpoint and network security, ” said Oren Zenescu, Chief Information Security Officer at Altshuler Shaham, a leading investment house in Israel. “We found that TrapX DeceptionGrid™  provided us with visibility into unauthorized lateral movement. The actionable intelligence that DeceptionGrid generates can be fed to other elements in the security eco-system to make them more effective.   That in addition to the fact that the tool was very easy to deploy and required almost no maintenance led us to deploy it to protect our network.”


The new capability of detecting attacks against closed circuit camera’s will be a differentiator in the future of deception technology. “The DeceptionGrid’s enhancements revolutionize cybersecurity, particularly the nexus between physical security and information security. IoT security will necessitate CSOs and CISOs getting on the same page,” says Tom Kellermann, CEO of Strategic Cyber Ventures.


“Unlike other security solutions that work at the perimeter, TrapX DeceptionGrid 6.1 is strikingly different by working at the core of the network and within mission-critical infrastructure to provide real-time breach detection and prevention. TrapX has clearly enhanced the value proposition for its customers, thereby setting a high standard in the deception-based cyber-security defense landscape,” noted Sankara Narayanan, Senior Industry Analyst at Frost & Sullivan in their recently published 2017 North American Deception-based Cyber-security Defense for Manufacturing Technology Leadership Award.


DeceptionGrid 6.1 new features include:

  • Expanded and Comprehensive Support for IoT – DeceptionGrid automatically provisions hundreds-to-thousands of Traps which emulate IoT devices such as security cameras, networked printer/copiers, smart lighting systems, and more to deceive and attract attackers seeking these easily compromised network assets.
  • Smart Auto-Pilot – TrapX smart Auto-Pilot automatically analyzes the entire network infrastructure and proposes the deployment of Traps which best fit into the existing network environment. This dynamic analysis produces a unique deployment of deception within your network.
  • Deception Token Orchestration – Deception Token (lure) orchestration brings comprehensive support, reporting and analysis for self-distribution of Tokens within Linux and Windows environments.
