Full-Spectrum Cyber Deception
CounterCraft empowers organizations to strengthen their security posture more efficiently than ever before. Designed and developed by cyber security experts, the solution delivers personalized, actionable intelligence in real time to facilitate early threat detection, accelerate incident response and significantly reduce security spend.
CounterCraft proactive deception and counterintelligence capabilities enable organizations to deploy highly credible fictitious assets across their networks in a synthetic environment, designed to mimic the organization’s existing network, systems and naming conventions. External adversaries and malicious insiders cannot tell the difference between real and false assets. When adversaries engage with false information, fake systems and decoy identities, they trigger immediate, genuine alerts that help threat hunters and security teams to investigate and control the attack. This delivers valuable insights into the attacker’s motivations, tools and techniques. The latest product release includes full integration of the MITRE ATT&CK™ classification schema, providing an at-a-glance view of threat actor behavior within the deception environment. The correlation and integration of the deception environment and the intelligence obtained with MITRE ATT&CK™ affords unprecedented threat hunting and investigative power to understand attackers’ modus operandi.
It is the first product that automates the design, implementation, supervision and maintenance of cyber deception campaigns across an organization’s entire spectrum of digital assets. This automation has the potential to reduce counterintelligence costs by up to 95%, compared to manual techniques.
This emerging market for cybersecurity deception has huge potential; CounterCraft is currently the only company operating in this space in Europe. According to Gartner consultants, the market for this technology is expected to exceed $3,000 million by 2020.
CounterCraft is a pioneering provider of full-spectrum cyber deception and ground-breaking threat hunting and cyber counterintelligence tools to detect, investigate and control targeted attacks.
