While many other vendors rely on emulating decoys, Attivo Networks differentiates its deception by running real operating systems and software identical to production assets in customer environments. This, combined with the ability to collect threat intelligence and accelerate incident response, positions the company as a “significant contender for any project to refresh an enterprise's security infrastructure,” writes Rik Turner, Principal Analyst at Ovum. “Attivo stands out for the dynamic nature of its deception technology, while its combination with response automation puts its product ahead of the pack in this market segment.”
