Acalvio to deliver leading cyber deception to protect customers from advanced threats on Google Cloud Marketplace

June 02, 2022

Santa Clara, CA – June 2, 2022 Acalvio’s patented and award-winning Autonomous Deception solution, ShadowPlex, enables organizations to detect, investigate and respond to malicious activity both inside the perimeter and across hybrid and cloud deployments. Acalvio’s solutions are anchored on innovations in distributed deception, software defined networking (SDN) and artificial intelligence (AI), enabling security teams to cut through the cycle of endless alerts and accelerate threat detection by focusing on high fidelity detections, all while minimizing the incidence of potential false positives. ShadowPlex was named a finalist in the RSAC Innovation Sandbox.
Federal and industry organizations have recognized the efficacy of Cyber Deception as the threats become increasingly sophisticated, with the involvement of nation-state actors. CISA is urging immediate deployment of Cyber Deception for Network Security in the latest “2022-2026 Strategic Technology Roadmap, Version 4″ (https://www.cisa.gov/publication/strategic-technology-roadmap-overview). NSA has published a detailed report on the effectiveness of cyber deception based on large red-team studies in the “The Next Wave” Vol 23, 2021 . MITRE introduced MITRE Engage (https://engage.mitre.org/), a framework for adversary engagement operations to secure network interiors based on deception.
Acalvio ShadowPlex is a leading Cyber Deception solution now available on Google Cloud Marketplace. Acalvio is also backed by marquee investors, including GV.
While enterprises are adopting cloud technology at an increasing rate, many continue to manage large on-premises deployments. These hybrid environments present new challenges for security and DevOps teams who require an integrated solution that extends across both cloud and on-premises deployments. ShadowPlex Deception-as-a-service delivered on Google Cloud is uniquely positioned to support this and many of Acalvio’s customers, both commercial and government, are already using this. Acalvio ShadowPlex service, hosted on Google Cloud, is also resold by MSSPs and ISVs. With ShadowPlex now available in the Google Cloud Marketplace, the subscription and deployment process is streamlined and customers can quickly subscribe and start protecting their workloads both in Google Cloud and on-premises.
“While the cloud has transformed the way we think about infrastructure, it has also introduced a variety of new risks that threat actors are finding creative ways to exploit. Google Cloud is differentiating beyond legacy security and giving its customers a new approach based on Cyber Deception to detect and respond to malicious activity with precision and speed in modern environments,” said Ram Varadarajan, co-founder & CEO for Acalvio Technologies.
“Solutions that help organizations detect, investigate and respond to security threats across cloud environments have become increasingly important to business success today,” said Dai Vu, Managing Director, Marketplace & ISV GTM Programs, Google Cloud. “We’re pleased to have Acalvio’s ShadowPlex solution now available on Google Cloud Marketplace so customers have access to the solutions and expertise they need to secure their workloads as they digitally transform their businesses.”
