Acalvio’s advanced threat defense platform detects, contains and remediates attackers through a unique combination of deception and data science.
We like Acalvio because they realize the fact that adversaries will always find a way to surprise. They also realize that adversaries are not invincible and can be beat with intelligence. They couple deception with data science and automation to help mitigate the attacks of adversaries in very dynamic ways.
From their website:
Acalvio provides Advanced Threat Defense (ATD) solutions to detect, engage and respond to malicious activity inside the perimeter. The solutions are anchored on patented innovations in Deception and Data Science. This enables a DevOps approach to ATD, enabling ease of deployment, monitoring and management. Acalvio enriches its threat and intelligence by data obtained from internal and partner ecosystems, enabling customers to benefit from defense in depth, reduce false positives, and derive actionable intelligence for remediation.
