In the report Gartner recommends, “Security and risk management leaders
who want to plan their security operations by addressing their threat

alternative in any threat detection initiative, as a main tool for small

Deception with Adaptive Response to detect, prevent and respond to

The PacketViper Deception360 solution uniquely blends the
use of deception internally for threat detection with external deception
for threat prevention. PacketViper CTO Don Gray explains Deception360:
“When threats hit a PacketViper decoy, either internally or externally,
a series of adaptive responses can be automatically enacted straight
from PacketViper and without complex orchestrations. In either case the
action can be a selection of adaptive responses including route them to
a containerized, dedicated responder (honeypot), block them from
everything except our decoys, or send an alert. External threats are
kept off of the network and internal threats are prevented from
establishing command and control communications or exfiltrating data.
This combination of internal and external deception produces practical
security results.”

PacketViper is exhibiting at the Gartner Security and Risk Management
Summit in National Harbor June 17-20th. Visit booth #950 for
a quick demo on Deception360.
