With the $81 million stolen in the Bangladesh Bank heist of 2016, advanced attackers identified a gold mine with vulnerabilities in wire transfer networks. Many wire transfer systems are not updated and use old configurations that make them easy targets for these attackers. Even the most sophisticated prevention tools fall short and expose banks and financial institutions to great risk.
illusive’s Wire Transfer Guard™ breaks that pattern by detecting attackers on their first failed attempt, and mitigating future attacks.
Wire Transfer Guard™, the first cyber-deception-dedicated solution built to protect wire transfer networks, effectively detects, reports on and mitigates targeted attacks that pose high risk of financial and strategic damage to financial institutions globally.
Wire Transfer Guard™ deceives attackers into finding deceptions wire transfer networks. When an attack is launched on the deceptions network, the attack is immediately detected, real-time forensics are obtained from the attacker’s machine and the attack is completely mitigated.
Wire Transfer Guard™ does this by deploying deceptions on every endpoint in the network in an agentless fashion. These deceptions point to the deceptions wire transfer network servers, objects, user credentials, web interfaces and more. Because there are more deceptions than actual wire transfer networks, attackers are likely to attack deceptions.
Wire Transfer Guard™ provides vital detection and mitigation of wire transfer attacks, regardless of the user’s version and configuration of the wire transfer software being used. This helps protect networks while the user upgrades to the current version of the network software.
Wire Transfer Guard™ and illusive networks’ Attacker View™ visualize various components of wire transfer systems, providing insight into existing attack vectors and vulnerabilities that pose risks to key assets within your organization’s wire transfer network.
With illusive’s Deceptions Everywhere® technology, you’ll detect advanced attacks in their earliest stages, before they reach wire transfer systems. This enables an early response that will prevent an attacker from reaching the sensitive system.
Wire Transfer Guard™ deploys a web of decoy data that includes credentials, databases, gateways, access-servers, web-interfaces and other entities. These deceptions effectively divert and mitigate attacks, while increasing the probability that attackers will use a deception when they attempt to access the network, and thereby reveal themselves.
