Cyber deception leader supports innovation to advance adversary engagement as part of cyber defense strategy
Acalvio Technologies today announced it is a MITRE Engenuity Center for Threat-Informed Defense Benefactor, supporting MITRE EngageTM to advance threat-informed defense globally. A leader in deception technology, Acalvio’s role as a benefactor aligns with its vision of enabling enterprise defenders to detect, engage and deter malicious threats present in their networks.
MITRE Engage is the world’s leading framework for cyber deception, as well a global community that brings together cyber defenders, decision-makers and vendors for open conversations and planning on the future of deception technology. Deeply informed by the MITRE ATT&CK® knowledge base, the Engage community assumes network compromises are inevitable and therefore focuses on furthering adoption of cyber denial, deception and adversary engagement as part of a defensive cyber strategy.
“Defending against today’s sophisticated adversaries requires new, threat-informed defense tactics and techniques and the work being done within MITRE Engage is admirable,” said Ram Varadarajan, CEO and co-founder of Acalvio Technologies. “Acalvio is proud to be a benefactor of this prestigious organization and support the research and development to advance innovation in cyber deception and adversary engagement.”
Acalvio supports the Engage framework and provides deception technology-based robust solutions for IT Security, OT Security, Identity Threat Detection and Response (ITDR), Zero Trust and Ransomware Protection.
“MITRE Engage TM was built on the principle that, by coming together as a community, we could lower the barrier to entry, while raising the ceiling of expertise for defenders to use adversary engagement technologies. The benefactor program embodies this community spirit by paving the way for future innovation and capability development to be available for all,” said Maretta Morovitz lead for MITRE Engage. “We are grateful to Acalvio Technologies for their leadership and commitment to this community, as our first benefactor. We look forward to continued partnership with Acalvio and the entire adversary engagement community as we work to continue to expand MITRE Engage to enable operations within and across the public and private sectors.”
As a benefactor of the program, Acalvio will play an active role in planning and executing strategies and technologies designed for industry, government and cyber vendor communities to defend against adversaries. Defenders utilizing Engage’s adversary engagement tools to plan, execute and analyze strategy are able to build security controls that protect their perimeter and interior environments.
“Our benefactors drive innovation in adversary engagement and ensure state-of-the-art guidance on the safe and effective use of these technologies is continuously available to the global cyber community. We are grateful for Acalvio Technologies’ support,” said Jon Baker, Director, Center for Threat-Informed Defense, MITRE Engenuity. “Mapped to the MITRE ATT&CK® techniques, MITRE EngageTM enables defenders to expose and affect adversarial operations or to elicit cyber threat intelligence from adversaries operating on defender-controlled networks.”
