Cybersecurity Startup BitTrap Develops Groundbreaking Detection Technology to Address Surge in Cyberattacks

BitTrap | October 05, 2021

Startup company BitTrap has announced a blockchain-based cybersecurity solution that leverages attackers' motivations to provide singular detection capabilities. This approach differs from cybersecurity paradigms that focus on trying to keep attackers from breaking in. Instead, it assumes some have already made their way inside a network, undetected, and is designed to identify them and reduce hacker dwell time in the compromised system.

The system works by deploying a vast network of wallets in every endpoint or cloud instance. Each wallet contains a risk-adjusted bounty of cryptocurrency assets calibrated, based on research from the BitTrap Attacker Behavioral Labs, to ensure it will capture an attacker's attention. Collecting the bounty triggers an incident-response operation that alerts the organization of the breach, effectively causing the hacker to reveal their presence. The vulnerability can be quickly assessed and patched while avoiding ransomware and data exfiltration altogether.

BitTrap began operations in 2020 after cyberattacks multiplied during the global pandemic. The company's founders, who combine decades of industry experience in cybersecurity and expertise in attacker behavior, developed the groundbreaking technology to help companies actually benefit from cyberattacks. "It is very important to capitalize on security incidents, using each opportunity to learn and prioritize efforts," said BitTrap CTO Ariel Futoransky. "We need to understand our adversaries' main motivation and use it to overcome our challenges and reduce the impact of attacks. With our unique approach, we can tackle both issues at the same time. We go a long way beyond intrusion detection or deception."

The company is particularly proud of the new solution. Through the company's Attacker Behavioral Labs, Altszul said, "We intend to keep investing and developing the most sophisticated capacity in the industry to understand attacker behavior. After our initial success, we are getting ready to raise a new round of financing to fuel our expansion in the market.

GoSecure Releases Titan Identity for Enhanced Identity and Access System Security

GoSecure | February 16, 2023

On February 15, 2023, GoSecure, a leading Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR) and proficient advisory services provider, announced the release of Titan Identity, a solution combining technology with managed services to offer an affordable and immediately deployable solution that can help organizations to measurably enhance response times to credential theft. GoSecure Titan Identity is a detection service specifically designed to significantly minimize the time required to detect and respond to assaults aimed at enterprise identity systems such as Microsoft Active Directory. By employing real-time analysis of Active Directory and other event log data, the Titan Identity's alert technology with low false positives allows Incident Response teams to effectively utilize existing workflow systems and react promptly to commonplace but hazardous attacks that occur after the initial foothold, thereby ensuring the safeguarding of crucial business assets. The Key benefits of this service include the following: Significantly reduced response and detection times by enabling the Incident Response team to have continuous and ongoing visibility into identity attacks across enterprise hosts, virtual machines, servers, containers, desktops, and laptops. Improved return on previous (SOAR)/ (SIEM) investments by leveraging the SIEM infrastructure, facilitating new SOAR playbooks with automated actions, and permitting the use of out-of-SIEM logs that surpass indexing and storage budget. Increased productivity for analysts by significantly minimizing the occurrence of false positives, eliminating the need for an additional user interface, and providing alerts with enriched messages. Enabled verifiable accuracy through automated and continuous testing and quantification of performance. Reduced deployment and change costs by avoiding network probes and sensors. Improved internal team's capabilities by granting access to a team of data scientists for expanding identity attack detection capabilities.
