Hackers Will Get Into Your Organization – But Then What?

Aug. 25, 2016

Doron Kolton, Founder & CEO of TopSpin Security

There is simply no all-in-one solution when it comes to security – the growing sophistication of hackers, the combination of human error and internal threats means every network is vulnerable. While many companies are still relying on traditional security methods, such as firewalls and anti-virus solutions, companies need to make sure they are prepared for when (yes, when) a hacker makes it through perimeter defenses, or a rogue employee decides to take data for personal gain.

The Art of Intelligent Deception in Cyber Security

Jun. 3, 2016

While tools that protect a network’s perimeter are undoubtedly an important part of an organization’s security architecture, no solution – whether it’s a firewall or antivirus software – can prevent every attack. This is because it’s not an even fight.

Hackers only need to be successful once, while organizations protecting sensitive information need to successfully thwart threats on a daily basis.

Given that it is virtually a guarantee that someone will make it past the security protecting the perimeter, every organization must have a plan in place to identify external and internal intruders as quick as possible. Unfortunately, this is not what typically transpires.

An advanced ‘Offensive Deception’ Platform using Decoys and Mini-Traps to Smoke Out Malicious Cyber Attackers

Apr.  4, 2016

TopSpin Security offers a unified network-based detection platform that uses intelligent offensive deception technology in a new way. Our solution, DECOYnet, reduces the critical time between malware infection (a.k.a. cyberattack) and its detection. When we say “deception” we mean that we lure the attackers into so called ‘traps’ by setting up decoys that mirror the network and its assets (endpoints, servers, file repositories etc.). The attackers are tricked into believing they’re seeing real assets, but in fact, they enter a trap.
