Illusive’s active defense stops attackers from accessing critical assets and detects the lateral movement that enables today’s most dangerous ransomware and nation-state attacks. Despite significant investments, it’s still difficult to see and stop attackers moving inside your environment. Illusive’s agentless approach captures deterministic proof of in-progress attacks and provides actionable forensics to empower a quick and effective response.

Recent publications from NIST, the Department of Homeland Security and Department of Defense mandate that all government agencies and their contractors must protect their environments with deception-based cyber resiliency. Illusive deceptive data looks and feels like real data that attackers would expect to use to move laterally and evade security agents on a network, and alerts defenders to an unauthorized presence upon interaction at the attack entry point.

Illusive attack surface management identifies and removes pathways between endpoints that are often unknown or overlooked by defenders and used by attackers to navigate towards critical assets undetected. Once unneeded attack pathways are eliminated, Illusive creates and plants deceptive versions that seem authentic to attackers and are crafted to fit the hosts where they are placed. This creates a hostile environment for attackers, who will be detected with high fidelity as soon as they make a move, without the false positives of more agent and baseline-based approaches. As soon as attackers engage a deception, Illusive creates a detailed forensic timeline of all attacker activity on an endpoint, including screenshots, in chronological order. This provides incident responders with the data they need to quickly assess and respond to attacks.

Recent regulations emphasize the importance of cyber resilience “to anticipate, withstand, recover from, and adapt to adverse conditions, stresses, attacks, or compromises on systems that use or are enabled by cyber resources.” Learn how Swish and Illusive can help your agency achieve cyber resiliency and compliance through mandated deception controls.
