An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief

Cymmetria is one of a family of next-generation cyber-deception vendors who go well past earlier generation honeypots to lay elaborate traps for attackers as they attempt to penetrate the corporate network or move laterally within it.

Cymmetria MazeRunner enables security personnel to lay elaborate traps by creating a carefully planned path of automatically created ‘deception elements’ toward a deceptive target, only to thwart the attack.

Cymmetria ActiveSOC is able to distinguish hard-to-detect alerts, uncovering subtle attacks that appear as low-scoring events without generating false positives.

The combination of the two approaches is able to stop even sophisticated advanced persistent threats (APTs), which are among the most pernicious of cyberattacks.
