Attivo and Quantea launch 'Joint Cybersecurity Solution' which reduces network breach and data loss risk in the age of IoT and COVID-19


PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT: Quantea and Attivo have announced a "new joint cybersecurity solution" amidst IoT innovation and the surge in cyberattacks during the pandemic.

Attivo Networks, which bills itself as "the leader in cyber deception and lateral movement attack detection", and Quantea, which says it is "a pioneer in converging network analysis and data science" have joined forces with a new cybersecurity solution.

Attivo says that its "ThreatDefend" platform provides "early and accurate detection of in-network threats, regardless of attack method or surface", and when it "identifies an attack and compromised devices", it shares attack data with the Quantea QP device and Quantea PureInsight software.

Quantea says its solutions "then provide access to a whole-packet, detailed and comprehensive history of the network data flowing through the infected system and all surrounding endpoints, allowing quick identification of all affected areas".

This allows security professionals to then "prioritise high-risk endpoints and immediately stop the attack before it compromises any other systems".

The CMO of Attivo Networks, Carolyn Crandall, said: “Attivo and Quantea together provide advanced, real-time, in-network threat detection and improved incident response, allowing organisations to quickly and efficiently detect threats, analyse attacks, and remediate infected endpoints.

“The joint solution ultimately addresses the expanded attack surface and reduces risk related to IoT networks".

Both companies note that in 2020 and beyond, "the trend towards IoT marks the ever-increasing importance of network security across all government, non-profit, and for-profit entities and their duty to protect confidential and personal information".

They point to a Microsoft IoT Signals report from October 2020 which estimates that "94% of businesses will use the Internet of Things by the end of 2021.

"Also, society has mostly adapted to remote working and learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has resulted in an increasing reliance on cloud storage, online video conferencing, and other products and services over the network. Due to these trends, enterprises and individuals are becoming more vulnerable to cyberattacks and network security breaches than ever before.

"The FBI has seen a 400% increase in cybersecurity complaints since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Attivo-Quantea joint solution will help protect people and organisations regardless of industry and function".

Michael Francisco, Quantea CTO said: "The needs of the most uncertain time has produced an unprecedented number of attacks and innovation in cybersecurity".

“Cyberattacks have quadrupled since the start of COVID-19 due to a sudden increase of remote work and online activities in general. Quantea and Attivo’s combined efforts have created a full suite (deception, detection, and thorough analytics) to assist in mitigating cyberattacks.

"By leveraging the highly adaptive detection and concealment capabilities of Attivo and the holistic approach of Quantea, organisations now have the opportunity to strengthen their security posture during these times and in the future.”
