Illusive Networks Exceeds 50 Million High-Fidelity Deceptions

Unprecedented achievement in scale – driven by autonomic deployment and efficacy of detection, plus low resource consumption – cements leadership in APT market


New York and Tel Aviv, January 29, 2018 – Illusive Networks, the leader in deception-based cybersecurity and Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) solutions, announced it has far exceeded the threshold of 50 million deceptions deployed, reflecting explosive growth in demand for its technology and further strengthening the company’s pole position in this sector.


As the level of sophistication in attacker techniques continues to rise, powerful yet featherweight, agentless deception solutions are becoming the de facto choice for security teams seeking to proactively bolster their cyber defense and mitigate risk without adding burden to under-resourced security and IT teams.


Illusive cloaks an entire environment with deceptive information, ensuring cyber intruders are caught at the earliest opportunity no matter where they break into the network. Illusive’s Deceptions Everywhere® solution uses advanced machine-learning to provide customized and ever-changing deceptions, while automating deployment and management. Customers value the system’s swift, easy, scalable implementation, high-fidelity alerts, and minimal manpower utilization.


“Our customers need protection from targeted attacks today—they can’t wait months for yet another drawn-out IT security project,” said Nir Greenberg, director of customer success at Illusive. “Our agentless, self-managing deception technology deploys in minutes and even large endpoint installations of hundreds of thousands can be completed in a couple of hours with no impact on production.”


“We chose Illusive’s technology as we liked their approach of exploiting an attacker’s vulnerabilities by looking at the network from an attacker’s perspective, rather than trying to anticipate every weakness of an organization in turn,” said OakNorth’s IT Director Rui Silva. “Illusive has an exceptional reputation in the market, they are backed by major global corporations and the team is both highly knowledgeable and passionate about what they do.”


“Deception loses its luster as an effective means of combatting hackers if it doesn’t rapidly and easily scale” says Michael Suby, Stratecast VP of Research at Frost & Sullivan. “What good are screens on windows if the doors are left open? Illusive’s market success is a testament to being scalable.”


Over the past 12 months, Illusive received recognition by The Wall Street Journal in its inaugural Tech Companies to Watch, was honored as a finalist in CRN’s Tech Innovators Awards, named as one of CRN’s ’25 Coolest Network Security Vendors’, by Momentum Partners as one of ten cybersecurity companies on their Watch List and more recently, by InformationWeek as a Top Vendor to Watch in 2018. The company recently announced high 2017 growth with industry-wide implementation from Fortune 50 customers alongside an expansion of their executive leadership team.
