Attivo Networks, an award-winning firm in cyber security threat detection, announced recently that it has been named a Platinum Award winner in American Security Today’s (AST) 2016 “ASTORS” Homeland Security Awards.

The award is for the company’s ThreatMatrix Deception and Response Platform being a good example of quality product development as well as one of the notable emerging technologies addressing the growing homeland security threats the world is facing.

Threat Matrix platform provides early detection of advanced, stolen credential, ransomware, and phishing attacks that are inside user networks, data centers, clouds, IoT and ICS-SCADA environments, according to the company’s website.

By deceiving attackers into revealing themselves, comprehensive attack analysis is efficiently gathered, actionable alerts raised, and response actions automated with prevention system integrations.

As part of the continuous threat management platform, ThreatPath™ provides vulnerability assessment of attack paths for proactive incident prevention.

According to Yahoo, AST’s comprehensive Homeland Security awards program was organized to recognize the most distinguished vendors of physical, IT, port security, law enforcement and first responders. The recipients were recognized for their efforts to keep the US secure.

Tushar Kothari, CEO of Attivo Networks said:”We’ve seen a steady increase in interest and demand for Attivo Networks advanced threat detection solutions. We’re extremely proud to have been recognized for our platform, which detects threats that have bypassed traditional security measures”.
