POD2112: Attivo’s Carolyn Crandall on Deceiving Hackers

Security professionals have long dismissed security by obscurity or attempts to hide information from hackers. In such schemes, hackers will sniff through the decoys and find the real assets. A new class of security technology – distributed deception – may change that thinking. Distributed deception creates authentic-looking IT environments, complete with data and applications, to trick hackers. Through this approach, security teams can detect and stop attacks faster than through conventional means. Carolyn Crandall, chief deception officer and chief marketing officer at Attivo Networks, joins Pod2112 to talk about how distributed detection can make enterprise security more effective.
