All warfare is based on deception. Sun-Tzu Art of War
Deception has been a method of effectively weakening and defeating opponents in war, sports and gambling for the last millennium. Today, this method also aims to create uncertainty in the mind of the attacker in the cyber environment, to make mistakes that reveal the presence of the attacker, and to negatively affect the overall attack economy. Thanks to deception technology, cyber security teams do not have to wait for an attack and react after the attack takes place. Instead, cybersecurity teams locate baits and traps designed to divert the attacker from their path throughout the attack lifecycle.
Attackers usually make discovery by obtaining the credentials of the target people and show lateral movement within the network to expand their attacks. With deception technology, organizations reflect the operating systems, applications and data of the live (prod) environment; They create a virtual minefield of bait and traps. As soon as an attacker interacts with a deceptive item, the cybersecurity team receives alerts not only to stop the threat's origin, but also to understand the threats.
Unlike other detection tools, the highly interactive deception environment provides cyber security teams with the option to securely examine their competitors by gathering competitive intelligence. Through deception technology, cyber security teams gain insight into the attacker's tools, methods and purpose; It strengthens general defensive strategies and gains a more comprehensive set of knowledge to level the playing field with its opponents.
Institutions take many measures to prevent attackers from entering the corporate network. Many of the attackers are prevented by these measures. The most challenging part of the security process is recognizing that an attacker has infiltrated the corporate network and then preventing any malicious activity from being done by that attacker. The main goal of the deception technologies offered by Natica is to imprison the attacker, who somehow managed to bypass the other security elements of the organization, to access the servers and data that appear to be the real assets of the institution but are completely established with the aim of catching the attacker. Once the intruder reaches these fake assets, it means that they are caught and blocked from accessing other data of the organization.
