SAN MATEO, CA — Oct. 26, 2015 — TrapX, a global leader in advanced cyber security defense, today announced that it has successfully completed integration with the McAfee® Data Exchange Layer (DXL) communication platform. DXL enables the TrapX DeceptionGrid to integrate directly with the McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange (TIE). DeceptionGrid can now provide actionable intelligence and initiate activity throughout the line of Intel Security products and other Intel Security Innovation Alliance partner’s products on TIE. This allows direct remediation actions to be taken, such as shutting down an attack in-flight and quarantining compromised assets in real-time. This enhances customers’ ability to identify and defeat many advanced threats such as the APT, zero-day events and other sophisticated malware attacks.
DeceptionGrid automates the deployment of a network of camouflaged malware traps that are intermingled with real information technology resources. These traps appear identical in every way to real IT assets. Once sophisticated malware has slipped past other primary cyber defenses and penetrated the enterprise, it continues to move laterally to find high-value targets. Just one touch of DeceptionGrid sets off a high-confidence alert. Through the use of the DXL fabric, this alert can drive actions to mitigate the attack rapidly and resume normal operations.
“Dynamic Deception Operations (DDO) gives our customers the strongest set of options available to find and defeat attackers that have already breached the perimeter. We’ve automated everything and integrated DDO tightly with Intel® Security’s threat intelligence sharing ecosystem,” said Carl Wright, executive vice president and general manager at TrapX Security. “Now we can move with speed and in concert with other Intel Security partner capabilities and products to shut the attack down before the attacker can achieve their objectives or spread.”
”By implementing products that are integrated with Intel Security solutions, we believe our customers will experience faster deployment times, and with faster deployment times come reduced costs,” said D.J. Long, senior director, head of the Security Innovation Alliance at Intel Security. “TrapX’s integration with TIE over the DXL platform provides customers with actionable intelligence to manage their multi-vendor security environments.”
TrapX will also be demonstrating DeceptionGrid at this year’s RSA conference taking place in San Francisco February 29 through March 4, 2016.
