Detecting the top 40 ransomware techniques with Active Defense

Read how Active Defense protects your enterprise by disrupting the 40 most common ransomware tactics.

What is deception?

Deception is a proactive defense approach that detects active threats by populating your environment with decoys: fake endpoints, files, services, databases, users, computers, and other resources that mimic production assets for the sole purpose of alerting you to adversary presence when they’re touched.

Since decoys are hidden from valid users unaware of their existence, any interaction with them is a high-confidence indicator of a breach. Security analysts and SOCs leverage deception-based alerts to generate threat intelligence, stop lateral movement, and orchestrate threat response and containment without human supervision.

Sophisticated threats bypass traditional defenses. But why?

Too many false positives, missed alerts

Too many false positives, missed alerts

45% of alerts are false positives. 99% of security teams say alert volumes are a problem. Analysts face a barrage of low-fidelity alerts every day, resulting in burnout and missed attacks.

Human-driven threats hide in plain sight

Sophisticated attacks are stealthy

91% of incidents don’t even generate a security alert, therefore it takes 280 days on average to detect and mitigate a breach. Advanced adversaries use purpose-built playbooks to bypass existing defenses.

Advanced attacks are human-operated

Advanced attacks are human-operated

68% of attacks are not malware-based. Advanced attacks have human adversaries in the driver’s seat which allows them to bypass defenses that only look for malicious code.

What can Zscaler Deception do for you?

Deliver pre-breach warnings

Deliver pre-breach warnings

Get early warning signals when sophisticated adversaries like organized ransomware operators or APT groups are scoping you out. Perimeter decoys detect stealthy pre-breach recon activities that often go unnoticed.

Detect lateral movement

Detect lateral movement

Catch attackers that have bypassed traditional perimeter-based defenses and are trying to move laterally in your environment. Application decoys and endpoint lures intercept these adversaries and limit their ability to find targets or move laterally.

Stop ransomware spread

Stop ransomware spread

Decoys in the cloud, network, endpoints, and Active Directory act as landmines to detect ransomware at every stage of the kill chain. Simply having decoys in your environment limits ransomware’s ability to spread.

Contain threats in real-time
