NEW YORK and TEL AVIV, Israel, Nov. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Illusive Networks®, the leader in deception-based cyber defense solutions, today announced a series of new enhancements to the Illusive Platform that extend protection to critical attack surface elements where traditional security approaches face challenges: IoT (Internet of Things), OT (Operational Technology), and network components such as routers and switches. New functionality provides organizations with broader coverage as digital transformation initiatives and the evolution of advanced persistent threats expand attack surfaces.
"Adversaries are increasing their focus on non-traditional IT attack surfaces, and concerns raised by evaporating perimeter security in the areas of IoT and OT are impacting transformation efforts," said Ofer Israeli, CEO and founder of Illusive Networks. "Today, we are releasing enhancements to the Illusive Platform that ensure early threat detection and rapid informed response no matter the source or evolution of attacks, putting attackers on the defensive, and allowing organizations to operate without fear."
Enhancements to the Illusive Platform include:
"Organizations are turning to Illusive to help them gain control, visibility, and protection for infrastructure platforms that typically do not have a full complement of security protections, be it cutting-edge IoT devices or legacy OT systems, as attackers seek to exploit gaps in these systems," said Gil Shulman, VP of Product Management at Illusive Networks. "Deception technology is an easy and effective layer to address these needs, but must be authentic to the environment. Illusive's next-gen IoT, OT and Network Device Emulations are engineered to mimic real-world environments in a way that fools attackers into engagement, consequently triggering a powerful response and removing unconventional infrastructure as an attack path for cyber criminals."

About Illusive Networks
Illusive Networks uses next-generation deception technology to stop cyber-attacks by detecting and disarming attackers, destroying their decision-making processes, and depriving them of the means to laterally move towards attack targets. Illusive's inescapable deception and attack surface reduction capabilities eliminate high-risk pathways to critical systems, force attackers to reveal themselves early in the threat lifecycle, and capture real-time forensics that accelerate incident response. Built on agentless, advanced automation and requiring very little security team support, Illusive immediately shifts the advantage to defenders, freeing precious resources from the complicated and data-heavy approaches that overload them today.
