Attivo Networks®, the award-winning leader in deception for cyber security threat detection, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Attivo Networks to its 2016 list of Emerging Vendors. This annual list recognizes recently founded, up-and-coming technology suppliers who are shaping the future of the IT channel through unique technological innovations. The Emerging Vendors list also serves as a valuable resource for solution providers looking to expand their portfolios with cutting-edge technology. In addition to being named to this prestigious list, Attivo Networks was named one of CRN’s “10 Security Emerging Vendors You Need to Know About.”
Attivo Networks was recognized for its industry leading ThreatMatrix Deception and Response Platform, which was recently enhanced. The platform provides real-time threat detection and attack forensic analysis for accelerated incident response and remediation. It is designed to provide early detection of cyberattacks from all threat vectors including zero-day, stolen credential, ransomware and phishing attacks that are renowned for bypassing traditional prevention systems. The platform is aligned to Gartner’s Adaptive Security Architecture of Predict, Prevent, Detect and Respond (Gartner, February 2016)* and is designed for early detection of threats, accelerated incident response and strengthening of prevention systems based on attack information gathered while deceiving and engaging attackers.
“The select group of companies on our Emerging Vendors list have already made a name for themselves in their short time in the IT community, introducing leading-edge technologies with the potential to transform their segments of the IT market,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “These tech suppliers are quickly making their mark on the industry and are the ones solution providers should watch in 2016.”
“The Attivo Networks team is incredibly honored to receive this industry distinction,” said Attivo Networks CEO, Tushar Kothari. “This is a powerful validation of the market’s interest in advanced distributed deception system platforms. As cyber security threats continue to evolve, we strive to provide our customers with a robust adaptive defense built on deception, advanced forensics to accelerate incident response, thus delivering a solution designed to derail even the most sophisticated attacker’s attempts to breach a network.”
