Active Cyber Engagement

Advanced cyber threats continue to bypass the most sophisticated passive defenses. However, using an “active defense” approach with Deception-as-a-Service technology provides a real-time view of the attacker’s perspective and turbo-charges SOC performance, providing a powerful new tool to your organization’s cyber defenders.

Velaspan Active Cyber Engagement, powered by Alcalvio’s industry-leading ShadowPlex capabilities, delivers a fully managed threat defense platform, providing early detection and real-time containment of sophisticated adversaries – backed up by Velaspan’s 24×7 expert SOC response support.

What is Deception Technology?

If a breach occurs, cyber deception answers the question: “What actions do we take when a breach is discovered.” The idea is to deliberately blanket an enterprise’s network infrastructure with “Deception elements” that are specifically designed to detect, direct, disrupt, confuse, and confound attackers. Proactively deploying these elements makes this an “Active Defense” approach, rather than responding to a breach with traditional tools.

Deception elements are not just decoys; they are special-purpose versions of the real thing. They trigger an alert only when accessed. Therefore, false positives are virtually non-existent because these elements exist outside of normal operational workflow. Any alert from Deception technology is worthy of inspection.
