Security is the most crucial part of IT sector’s progress. The security parameters like Network security, Cloud security, System security. But additionally the cyber-crime trend is increasing, the number of “zero-day” vulnerabilities reported exposes how vulnerable the network perimeter is even with an aggressive patching policy. The use of Information Technology (IT) resources is the regular approach for most organizations so their assets and intellectual property are properly managed. This strategic decision implies its exposure to the outside world through the data infrastructure.
Nowadays Organizations want to protect themselves against these attacks by implementing security strategies, but in reality, the network’s first & main defense lines are pervious, and the security architectures are not dynamic enough to face existing or future threats. The main problem for any organization’s security is that cyberspace attacker’s techniques are dynamic as they have a large community of experts in support. The lead time between an attack and the detection of that attack, by the security team of the organization, are immense, if ever. The disruption provoked by the cyber-incidents affects everyone from life support devices to financial organizations.
A Deception-based technology could enable the organizations to quick & easy detection so, that can be easy for analysing and defend networks & whole system against real-time attacks. Deception technology may provide more accurate information on malware and malicious activity not detected by any other types of cyber defence. It can instantly detect the presence of an intruder, identify the intruder’s intent, and provide feasible intelligence to stop current & future attacks against organisation. Deception Technology is required to sustain an effective response to attacks by taking a proactive approach.
Wondering how deception technology will work? Well, the technology work by generating traps and deception decoys that imitates authentic technology assets and/or lures which are mixed among and within existing IT resources to provide a layer of protection to stop attackers that have penetrated the network. Traps (decoys) are IT assets that either use real licensed operating system software, or are emulations of these devices. About the infrastructure, the deception decoys can run in a real operating environment or can fit into a virtual space too. It will bring the cybercriminal into a confidence that they have actually hit the target of stealing the credentials or info. The deception technology, when successfully registers a trap, it notifies the centralized system and the affected decoy is put to record.
So Why Deception Technology as a Defence?
- Early detection of the cybercriminal activities
- No damage to the actual data or server
- Flawless scale and automation
- Suitable for all type of organizations
- Helps with one step ahead of security level
After the understanding of Deception Technology components, behaviour and the position of it on the information security prospect and evaluate the effectiveness when targeted by a cyber threat which materializes into a cyber-incident, one thing is clear that the Deception is efficient & well strategic Technology which can help to reduce the Cyber Attacks. The ability to detect an intrusion & malware quickly puts this Deception Technology into the first line of defense in any organization’s security model.
