New York and Tel Aviv, Israel, November 13, 2017 – Illusive Networks, the leader in deception-based cybersecurity, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Illusive a finalist in the Security – Threat Analytics category of their 2017 Tech Innovators Program.


The 2017 Tech Innovator Award commends vendors in a broad range of categories, with the winners and finalists chosen from among hundreds of applicants in areas including security, cloud computing and networking.

“We continually advance our Deceptions Everywhere® technology to proactively safeguard enterprise networks against the next generation of advanced cyber attacks and facilitate network hygiene. In particular, we pay close attention to ensure our forensics are optimized to enable the mitigation of deadly attacks at the earliest opportunity.” said Ofer Israeli, Found & CEO, Illusive Networks. “We’re honored to be recognized by CRN as a Tech Innovators finalist, further endorsing our solution at the forefront of threat detection.”


Named as one of CRN’s ’25 Coolest Network Security Vendors’ earlier this year, Illusive Networks also received recognition by The Wall Street Journal in its inaugural Tech Companies to Watch and Momentum Partners as one of ten cybersecurity companies on their Watch List.


Illusive’s award-winning, distributed deception platform blankets a company’s entire network with information that deceives attackers. Deceptions are placed on every endpoint and server to mimic application, data, network and system components that an attacker would use to further attack efforts.


Automatically generated and AI-driven, Illusive’s deceptions are tailor-made for the customer’s environment to appear realistic and authentic to attackers. As soon as attackers attempt to use the deceptive data, Illusive detects and alerts enterprise security teams, providing real-time, contextual forensic data from the source host that enable informed, targeted and timely incident response operations. Illusive’s agentless technology is IT-friendly, easy to deploy and scalable, presenting an ideal solution for protecting the vast networks of global corporations.
