Acalvio
Product/Service Highlights: Acalvio's Shadowplex is based on the principle of deceiving an attacker, actively engaging a threat actor rather than simply observing their actions. By offering 'alternative realities,' Shadowplex seeks to trick malware, exploits, and attacks into showing themselves and giving up their secrets. In order to scale this activity, Acalvio has developed autonomous deception, which combines deception with AI and SDN technologies.
Year Founded: 2015
Key Executives: Ram Varadarajan, founder, chairman, and CEO, was formerly senior vice president and general manager at CA. Prior to that, he was founder, chairman, and CEO of Arcot Systems. Nat Natraj, co-founder and president, was formerly senior vice president, sales, at Apigee, Calypso, and CA. Raj Gopalakrishna, co-founder and vice president, architecture, was formerly distinguished engineer and senior vice president at CA. Sreenivas Gukal, co-founder and vice-president, engineering, was formerly senior architect at CA Technologies.
