“The use of advanced Deception techniques to secure data and divert attackers away from high-value assets was historically limited to military and Intelligence organizations due to the labor, resource-intensive, and limited nature of virtualized / high interaction deception decoy systems. The introduction of emulation technology and automation has revolutionized the market, allowing enterprises to adopt advanced deception techniques at very low costs and no overhead.” Said Ori Bach, TrapX’s CEO.
As TrapX’s Deception Strategy, Officer Boyd will have a critical role in working with TrapX’s customers to adopt advanced deception-based data obfuscation, attacker diversion and data protection best practices originally perfected by military and Intelligence services to the commercial space.
