Cyber deception startup Cymmetria announces the introduction of ActiveSOC for incident response decision making
February 2 , 2017 – Cymmetria, a developer of comprehensive cyber deception solutions , today
announced the release of ActiveSOC™ – a new module in its MazeRunner cyber deception
solution, to assist its customers with incident response decision making and hunting
ActiveSOC allows organizations to deploy deception elements to networks and systems, based
on events observed by the SOC or systems such as a SIEM, threat intelligence platforms, and
other security controls. Using ActiveSOC, network defenders can deterministically treat their
noisy production environment as if it was a clean lab environment. ActiveSOC is able to validate
“below-the-threshold” events that might otherwise be ignored by analysts. It also allows for
alerts that reach the analyst to first be validated, reducing overall SOC costs, user friction, and
“ActiveSOC provides significant security and workflow value to the customer in intelligence
generation and decision making, while reducing analyst workload,” said Gadi Evron, Founder
and CEO of Cymmetria. “With ActiveSOC, deception is only deployed when and to where it is
needed. As a result, IT integration is much smoother.”
By allowing specific triggers to activate deceptive countermeasures, ActiveSOC deterministically
validates that there is an actual attack taking place without interfering with IT systems or the
user. Afterwards, the deception elements that were deployed are automatically removed.
Because ActiveSOC validates alerts before they reach the analyst, analyst workload is decreased
and SOC costs are reduced.
ActiveSOC is immediately available to Cymmetria’s MazeRunner Enterprise Edition customers.
