SAN MATEO, Calif.: TrapX Security has released version 6.0 of its DeceptionGrid™ platform. Version 6.0 offers the new industry-leading Deception-in-Depth architecture, significantly deepening deception capabilities designed to bait, engage and trap attackers throughout all stages of a breach. The DeceptionGrid expansion adds a new layer of deception to the existing multi-layered deception approach. Now with the ability to deploy a high-interaction trap based on a full OS, customers can clone existing assets to get deeper intel on the intruder.  This deep interaction layer provides the ability to better visualise attacks, while more effectively deceiving attackers, by tailoring deception layers to best match the attack vectors.

As a part of DeceptionGrid 6.0’s Deception in Depth architecture, the full OS enables organisations to completely replicate an entire production server that can clone customer assets in any part of the network. The full OS provides enhanced forensics capabilities that allow users to understand the attack in more detail. With this knowledge, security teams can quickly identify the assets being targeted from an attackers’ point of view, find the location of the attackers and determine what they are attempting to accomplish.

Also as part of the enhanced platform, DeceptionGrid 6.0 features new built-in intelligence capabilities that allow the user to automatically determine if the attack originates from a human perpetrator or from malware moving through the network. This elevated intelligence helps security teams better analyse the threat by providing detailed answers to critical questions about whether an attacker has penetrated a network, what its intentions are once it is inside and how quickly an attack can be stopped.

“It’s no secret that cyber criminals are becoming more sophisticated and more detail-oriented in their attack methods. Consequently, security solutions have to stay ahead of the attackers, not only anticipating their next move but also their next series of moves,” said Greg Enriquez, CEO of TrapX Security. “In light of this evolving threat landscape, DeceptionGrid 6.0 raises the bar on the industry yet again by delivering new deception capabilities that are unsurpassed in the market. Customers can thus keep potential attackers immersed, distracted and held captive even longer, preventing them from looking for other enterprise assets while security teams remediate the threat. DeceptionGrid 6.0 also exposes attackers’ tactics, giving organisations the ability to catch on to their techniques, gather detailed forensics and effectively combat them with the right tools, so they can quickly return to normal operations.
