TrapX Security and Check Point Collaborate To Enhance Enterprise Security

TrapX Security®, the global leader in deception-based advanced cybersecurity defense, is collaborating with Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP) to provide a real-time visibility, threat detection, and rapid threat containment solution for both internal networks and cloud deployments.

By integrating with key elements of the Check Point Security Gateway, TrapX DeceptionGrid enables early detection of targeted attacks and sophisticated threat actors operating inside networks, including networks with a broad diversity of devices to include Internet of Things (IoT) devices and embedded processors. This enhanced solution provides the agility needed to isolate compromised assets and stop attackers in near real-time.

The DeceptionGrid platform offers a full suite of deception capabilities that include a variety of traps and decoys. These appear identical in every way to operational IT assets and connected Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices. Upon penetrating a network environment, attackers attempt to perform reconnaissance and move laterally to locate high-value targets. Almost everywhere they turn, they will face a DeceptionGrid trap. Just one touch of the DeceptionGrid by the attacker sets off a high-confidence alert and immediate steps towards containment by the Check Point Security Gateway.

This integration helps maximize DeceptionGrid’s capability to contain attacks and enable a rapid return to normal operations. Security operations teams can detect threats faster in areas of the network where they previously had limited visibility, minimizing the chances of a successful breach. This deep visibility into malicious activity within an organization’s cloud can minimize or eliminate the risk to intellectual property, IT assets, critical infrastructure, and impact on business operations.
