Topic: Deception-based Threat Detection: Myths and Realities

In today’s world where advanced threats and insiders demonstrate that they can evade security prevention systems, in-network threat visibility and detection are considered critical security infrastructure. That said, there are myths and realities about the effectiveness of deception for detecting advanced threats – and there are specific strategies for operational management efficiency and key use cases that are driving adoption. Join us for this session where you’ll hear about real-world deployment experiences, the value customers are realizing, and what pentest Red Teams are saying about deception-based threat detection.
