illusive networks Adds Kill Switch Capabilities to its Deceptions Everywhere Cybersecurity Platform with Integration of CISCO PXGRID


Enables integrated, early detection of advanced attacks, real-time forensics collection and attack mitigation

New York, NY and Tel Aviv, Israel – February 20, 2017 –-illusive networks, the leader in Deceptions Everywhere® cybersecurity announced that it has successfully achieved Cisco compatibility certification with Cisco’s Identify Services Engine (ISE) Platform Exchange Grid (pxGrid) and Cisco Umbrella. The Internet of Everything (IoE) continues to bring together people, processes, data and things to enhance the relevancy of network connections. As a member of the Cisco® Solution Partner Program, illusive networks is able to quickly create and deploy solutions to enhance the capabilities, performance and management of the network to capture value in the IoE.

pxGrid Integration

Illusive’s integration of Cisco pxGrid powers enhanced prevention, providing customers with the earliest, most effective, and accurate attack detection. Incorporating kill switch capabilities into their advanced deceptions technology, data is collected from the compromised hosts as soon as an attack is detected. This data is then sent to the pxGrid platform, triggering ISE to execute containment of the compromised hosts. Customers have full control of the level of containment, actions taken per deception policy and designation of the host’s mitigation status, alongside comprehensive forensics information in real-time.

“We are proud to deliver a fully integrated APT detection, forensics collection and now attack mitigation solution,” said Ofer Israeli, CEO, illusive networks. “Integrating with Cisco pxGrid aligns with illusive networks’ strategy of forging partnerships to both strengthen and expand the customer value from our Deceptions Everywhere® cybersecurity technology.”

Cisco Umbrella Integration

illusive network’s technology can be configured by defenders utilizing Cisco Umbrella to trigger incidents, offering immediate, source-based forensics when access to a malicious site is attempted. This allows defenders to identify the attacker's entry point, actions, and target on their networks before any content is compromised by a developing attack. When Umbrella blocks access to a specific DNS or site, illusive’s forensics provides the IT team with real-time information to stop the APT, quarantine compromised files and revoke attacker access to the network. Furthermore, if lateral movement is involved, additional forensics are obtained on every move.

The Cisco Solution Partner Program, part of the Cisco Partner Ecosystem, unites Cisco with third-party independent hardware and software vendors to deliver integrated solutions to joint customers.

As a Solution Partner, illusive networks has achieved Cisco compatibility certification, and can provide its customers with 24-hour, 7-days-a-week customer support.
