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.
