Tabula Rosa Systems, our sister company is a "best of breed" provider for network, security and systems management. Given the recent Dyn's managed DNS service attacks which cauesed numerous blackouts, this blog is focused on what transpired and on a product to protect enterprises from these types of attacks, Attivo Networks.
Below is an article from TechCrunch depicting the DDoS attack on Dyn's DNS services.
Following the article is an overview of Attivo Networks, a powerful deceptive security product which offers compelling solutions for Bots and IoT.
The Attivo Networks IoT solution provides deployment of deception technology across widely used protocols including XMPP, COAP, MQTT, and DICOM based PACS servers. These protocols are used by IoT vendors to support a wide array of applications that allow for more cohesive machine-to-machine communication and monitoring concerning critical data and machine status.
Customers can configure the Attivo ThreatMatrix Deception Platform to look identical to the IoT devices on their network. The Attivo BOTsink® engagement servers and decoys appear as production IoT servers and services, deceiving attackers into thinking they’re authentic. By engaging with decoys and not with production devices, the attacker reveals themselves and can be quarantined and studied for detailed forensics. The Attivo analysis engine will analyze the attack techniques, the lateral movement of the attack, which systems are infected, and provide the signatures required to stop the attack. The attack analysis can then be used to improve incident response by automatically or manually blocking and quarantining the attack through integration with third party prevention systems.
If there is interest in Attivo, please contact Tabula Rosa through our website. This information is listed below.
