Attivo Networks, the industry experts in preventing identity privilege escalation and detecting lateral movement attacks, has announced it is working to provide the US Department of Defense (DoD) with a new generation of sophisticated, active defense technologies.

The Attivo ThreatDefend platform uses advanced deception and Machine Learning techniques to detect, degrade, disinform and divert adversaries. Threats are contained and valuable forensics gathered, providing real attack intelligence to the Common Operating Picture.

“Active Directory plays a critical role in basic network operations. However, it also helps adversaries determine which personas and high-value assets to attack,” said Todd Helfrich, VP of Federal, Attivo Networks. “Through adversary management, DOD customers can better defend their networks. We are proud to work with the DoDIN Approved Products Team, DIU and AFWERX/AFVentures to strengthen our nation’s cyberdefenses.”

Attivo was awarded an Other Transaction Prototype Agreement for active cyberdefense with the Defense Innovation Unit in 2019, supporting DoD requirements for active cyberdefense that uses state-of-the-art deception techniques to detect lateral movement.

The Attivo Networks ThreatDefend Platform provides the DoD and the broader US Federal Government with comprehensive risk reduction, attack prevention, detection and intelligence collection in support of defending forward operations outlined within the Cyberspace Solarium Commission report.
