Cymmetria Releases Free Community Version of Innovative Cyber Deception Solution for Hunting Attackers

July 13, 2016 – San Francisco/Tel Aviv – Cymmetria, which develops a cyber deception solution for hunting attackers in organizational networks, today released a free community edition of its MazeRunner platform. Cymmetria’s release of the community edition comes after two years of development and customer deployments, in addition to successfully capturing three targeted nation state attacks.

At the forefront of deception-based cyber security technology, MazeRunner helps enterprises and security teams defend valuable organizational assets from ever changing cyber threats. MazeRunner addresses the need to quickly identify and stop advanced threat actors from operating inside the organizational perimeter, regardless of whether the attackers are lying dormant and gathering information, or actively performing lateral movement.

The new community edition of MazeRunner will be publicly available for private initiatives and research endeavors, at no cost or commitment to purchase. The platform is fully customizable and integrates seamlessly with existing IT and security tools, allowing users to implement deception elements network-wide, in a flexible manner without encumbering existing organizational systems or requiring a lot of human capital to operate.

“At Cymmetria, we firmly believe in the power of deception technology as an extremely viable solution to the most advanced cyber threats,” said Gadi Evron, Founder and CEO of Cymmetria. “We’re excited to raise the curtain on our solution and provide free access to those looking to explore its benefits.”

Deception technology is quickly gaining popularity due to the increasing need for an effective solution for stopping and deterring threat actors. MazeRunner leverages virtualization technology to automate the creation and management of deception campaigns, ultimately creating unfriendly environments for attackers, one in which running tools or exploits on the wrong target means the end of the attack, as attackers are fingerprinted and signatures of their attacks are generated and distributed throughout the organization.

Earlier this month, Cymmetria released a report detailing the most recent Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) attack caught by its MazeRunner platform. The widespread APT, dubbed “Patchwork,” attacked 2,500 government and corporate targets worldwide. Alongside the report, Cymmetria released its deception campaign that will be accessible to any community edition users.

As part of a commitment to bring MazeRunner’s community edition to the greater security community, Cymmetria will be leading two workshops at the HOPE conference in July and DEFCON conference in August.
