Using Illusive to Defend Hybrid, Cloud-Enabled Ecosystems

Stop attacker movement to, from, within and between clouds

The cloud offers tremendous advantages to enterprises—as long as the cyber risks are properly mitigated.

By riding the connectivity created by the business itself, attackers appear to be authorized users, bypassing controls and evading detection. In dynamic hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environments, it is not enough to simply secure assets in the cloud–or depend upon the insufficient, built-in security controls that cloud vendors are providing–you must also secure the pathways to and from the cloud.

Externally hosted services and applications don’t stand in isolation—they are connected to the enterprise environment. As your organization’s attack surface widens, a security risk to one part of the extended ecosystem is a risk to all.

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 attacker movement to, from, and between all aspects of the extended network.

To prevent and detect attacker movement wherever it is occurring across your hybrid or multi-cloud ecosystem, Illusive Networks:

  • Proactively reduces pathways between networks and systems with perpetual visibility, restricting attacker movement
  • Prioritizes the defense of “crown jewels” through discovery of systems of greatest attack risk and then quantifies related connectivity risks
  • Forces cyber attackers into the open with cloud deception techniques – including servers, databases and fake credentials – to root out movement attempts into, within and between cloud-hosted systems
  • Studies attacker behavior by emulating cloud-based targets where rich forensics from compromised endpoints and decoy systems can be observed in depth

Leveraging Illusive attack surface management and deception capabilities reduce account takeovers, lowers the mean time to identify and remediate misconfigurations, catches malicious insiders, and closes cloud security and attack surface visibility gaps. With Illusive, organizations can protect the business across hybrid ecosystems to stop malicious activity long before attackers can reach business-critical assets.

Cloud elasticity and agility increase the likelihood of configuration errors and other security gaps. Attacker movement defense is a front line against advanced persistent threats, no matter where weaknesses exist and no matter where attackers start or end up.
