Deceptions in Retail

Protect Retail Innovation, Consumers and Revenue by Guarding against APTs

Retailers maintain troves of customer, payment, cardholder, purchase history, and other data that are irresistible to attackers. From department store and big-box brands, to grocery and restaurant chains, retailers have one thing in common: a vast and growing attack surface.

Digital transformation and automation of supply and distribution chains have moved order-taking, payment processing, inventory management, and marketing operations online. Cloud infrastructure helps preserve razor-thin margins but also expands the security perimeter. “Smart” shelves, RFID merchandise trackers, wireless POS systems, and a growing number of smartphone apps designed to improve customer experience add infinitely more avenues of potential entry for attackers. Customer trust and loyalty separate retail winners from losers, so while there is increasing risk of downtime and data breaches, cyber incidents can also have a greater business impact than ever.

Traditionally operating on low margins, retailers find it difficult to invest in cybersecurity skills and defensive measures to match the level of attacks waged against them. Deception solutions are especially valuable to turn the odds against attackers. Illusive mitigates the risk of APTs—low-and-slow-style attacks that can do the greatest damage—by detecting attackers early in the attack process and empowering security teams to act before an incident becomes a business crisis.

  • Defend revenue-critical systems across all business channels. No matter how you serve customers—online, in person, via phone or app—when an attacker sets up shop in your network, you will know quickly and with certainty. Illusive quickly detects attacks as they begin to move through the network, shows exactly where they are in relation to crucial systems, and captures an immediate forensic snapshot so responders can quickly determine the attacker’s motives and techniques.
  • Balance the risks of retail innovation. Even while your business is expanding and advancing, Illusive uses AI-driven automation to adjust the deception environment to help you stay ahead of attacks. The Illusive dashboard quantifies the level of APT risk the organization faces, and supports ongoing decision-making to continually improve security and reduce risk.
  • Prioritize activity and reduce noise in the SOC. Deceptions are visible only to attackers, so there are no false positives. This helps security teams cut through alert fatigue and data overload, focusing attention on alerts that matter most.
  • Accelerate the security program—at low TCO: Illusive is agentless, deploys in just hours or days, and requires very little ongoing administrative overhead. It quickly provides resource-constrained security teams with advanced APT detection and forensic capabilities that would otherwise take years to develop. Illusive’s API enhances the power of SIEM and broader incident handling workflows by providing source-based forensics and risk visibility for alerts generated by other technologies.

“Illusive’s built-in forensic gathering on potential incidents is amazing. It has reduced our triage from hours or days to just minutes, which means we can remediate threats very quickly.”
