Using Illusive to Defend Hybrid, Cloud-Enabled Ecosystems

Secure pathways to, from, and between clouds

The cloud offers tremendous advantages to enterprises—as long as the cyber risks are properly mitigated. Business leaders know they must secure sensitive data and applications that sit in the cloud, but these systems don’t stand in isolation. Because they are connected to the enterprise environment, a security risk to one part of the extended ecosystem is a risk to all.

No matter where an attacker’s target is situated, the attacker uses whatever weak link he or she can to break into the network, and from there moves laterally. To bypass controls and evade detection, they use the connectivity created by the business itself, appearing to be authorized users.

Most organizations today rely on multiple cloud services and providers. In these dynamic hybrid and multi-cloud environments, a comprehensive cloud security strategy must include a means to prevent and detect lateral movement to, from, and between all aspects of the extended network.

Illusive helps defend cloud-enabled organizations by:

  • Proactively reducing attack pathways between various parts of the business
  • Establishing prioritized defense of “crown jewels,” wherever they reside
  • Forcing cyberattackers into the open with cloud-aware deception techniques that root out attempts to move laterally early in the attack process
  • Enabling defenders to gather rich, real-time forensic intelligence so they can respond quickly and continuously strengthen their security posture.

With Illusive, organizations can protect the business across hybrid ecosystems to stop malicious activity wherever it starts–and long before attackers can reach business-critical assets.
