Attivo Networks Achieves Certified Integration with DXL Through the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance

Certified Integrated Solutions Deliver Active Defense and Accelerated
Incident Response Through Threat Intelligence Sharing

FREMONT, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Attivo Networks®, the award-winning leader in cybersecurity
threat detection, today announced that it has achieved technical
integration of the ThreatDefend™ Deception and Response platform with
McAfee Data Exchange Layer (DXL). Through this partnership, Attivo
Networks and McAfee address a rising need to close in-network detection
gaps, shorten incident response times, and quickly and easily remediate
compromised systems, leading to a simplified Threat
Defense Lifecycle
. This latest integration complements existing
certifications with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator, McAfee Enterprise
Security Manager, and McAfee Network Security Platform.

As a member of the McAfee
Security Innovation Alliance
, Attivo Networks plays a critical role
in the program’s mission to accelerate the development of interoperable
security products and to simplify the integration of these products
within complex customer environments, bringing greater value to joint
customers. This also provides organizations with security solutions that
protect data and stop threats from device to cloud using an open,
proactive, and intelligence-driven approach.

The threat landscape is constantly shifting and cyberattackers are
becoming increasingly prevalent and sophisticated. With that, it is
critical for organizations to be proactive in their approach to
cybersecurity,” said Tushar Kothari, CEO of Attivo Networks. “This
partnership provides organizations with the tools to implement a
proactive defense, effectively reducing integration complexity,
streamlining threat intelligence sharing, accelerating incident
response, and strengthening overall defenses against advanced attackers.”

After a rigorous certification process, organizations can now share
valuable threat intelligence collected by the ThreatDefend platform with
other DXL-compliant solutions,” said D.J. Long, vice president of
strategic business development at McAfee. “This facilitates the rapid
sharing of critical threat intelligence and shrinks the time to detect,
contain, and remediate in-network threats early and accurately.
Additionally, threat intelligence sharing can be used to bolster an
organization’s overall security infrastructure and help combat modern
cyberthreats across all attack surfaces.”

The ThreatDefend platform delivers early and accurate in-network threat
detection, and unlike other detection solutions, offers rich threat and
adversary intelligence. The platform works by creating decoys that
appear as production assets and by creating deceptive credentials on the
endpoint designed to redirect attacks into a deception environment. Any
engagement with the deception environment will result in a high-fidelity
alert and collection of threat intelligence. Through the deception
environment’s collection of attack forensics, organizations gain
valuable insight into attacker intent and threat intelligence required
for blocking attacks, threat hunting, and returning adversary mitigation.

When combined with McAfee DXL, an open software development kit that
dramatically reduces integration complexity and facilitates information
sharing, organizations benefit from the ability to quickly and easily
share intelligence across more than 100 security integrations in the DXL
ecosystem. As a result, any DXL partner solution can take advantage of
the deception technology detections, forensic information, network
visibility, and threat intelligence IOCs that the ThreatDefend platform
