Illusive Networks Introduces Metrics to Quantify the Risk of Advanced Attacks


New dashboard provides risk visibility to help security teams improve defenses against Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) and prioritize actions to stop attacks in progress.

NEW YORK and TEL AVIV, Israel, Nov. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Illusive Networks, leader in deception-based cybersecurity, today introduced a new dashboard that provides current state visibility into the likelihood that an APT-style attack in a customer's environment would be successful. The feature also allows at-a-glance insight into contributing risk factors, enabling security teams to prioritize security improvements and rapidly address incidents that can most adversely affect business.

Illusive's endpoint-focused deception technology enables its user interface to provide a real-time picture of every system in the environment and the possible paths to critical business assets. When the presence of an attacker is detected, security professionals can track the attacker's proximity to the organization's most prized assets such as data stores, intellectual property or systems that support financial or payment applications.

Built on these foundational capabilities, Illusive's dashboard provides the first means of quantifying the level of Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) risk an organization faces, together with insights on how to improve the likelihood of detecting the earliest movements of attackers who have penetrated the network.

Notable metrics and data included in Illusive's dashboard:

  • Indicators of how broadly and deeply deceptions have been deployed across the enterprise, and their impact on the organization's APT risk posture
  • The average number of movements it would take an attacker to reach highly risk-sensitive assets once they have established presence within the network
  • The number of users currently able to connect to each risk-sensitive asset
  • A list of high-risk users with above-average access privileges

"Our new dashboard rolls up a series of indicators that help gauge APT risk levels and identify actions that reduce the attack surface. By mapping the environment from the endpoint perspective as the attacker would want to see it, Illusive is able to uncover risk factors that other technologies cannot see," said Ofer Israeli, CEO, Illusive Networks. "It will help security teams better defend corporate networks as businesses become more technology-dependent, and therefore more susceptible to attack. The summary risk data will also help CISOs report cyber risk levels in quantifiable terms that are meaningful to risk officers and board members."

Illusive's dashboard, available now as part of its Management Console, is the latest enhancement to the award-winning, agentless, distributed deception platform that blankets a company's entire network with information that deceives attackers. Deceptions are placed on every endpoint and server to mimic application, data, network and system components that an attacker would use to further their attack efforts. Automatically generated and AI-driven, Illusive's deceptions are tailor-made for the customer's environment to appear realistic and authentic to attackers. As soon as attackers attempt to use the deceptive data, Illusive detects and alerts enterprise security teams, providing real-time, contextual forensic data from the source host that enable informed, targeted and timely incident response operations.

At the vanguard of the next evolution of cyber defense, Illusive Networks recently received recognition by Momentum Partners as one of ten cybersecurity companies on their Watch List, by The Wall Street Journal in its inaugural Tech Companies to Watch and was named as one of CRN's '25 Coolest Network Security Vendors'.
