SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 12, 2017 — Acalvio Technologies, an innovator in Advanced Threat Defense, will be participating at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit 2017, June 12-15, 2017, in National Harbor, Maryland. The Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit 2017 is the leading gathering of security, risk management and business continuity management leaders, delivering the insight required to guide organizations to a secure digital business future. Acalvio will be hosting a booth (#502) where security specialists will be available to discuss the benefits of Deception 2.0 technology.

Acalvio’s flagship product, ShadowPlex™, is a comprehensive, distributed deception platform that provides early, accurate and cost-effective detection of malicious activity within the enterprise. ShadowPlex is built on Acalvio’s patented Deception 2.0 technology that leverages Data Science and Dynamic Deception. It represents a fundamental architectural advancement that delivers scale, automation and authenticity with low IT overhead. ShadowPlex is designed for flexible deployment on-premises, private clouds and public clouds. The platform has pre-built integration with major security information event management (SIEM) systems for delivering comprehensive threat intelligence.

“The average dwell time of threat actors in an enterprise is about 243 days. It is imperative that organizations reduce it drastically. Deception technology can be used by businesses to deliver very high quality alerts to help them in pro-active detection of malicious activity by threat actors,” said Ram Varadarajan, CEO and founder at Acalvio. “We look forward to showcasing our innovative and patented Deception 2.0 offering, ShadowPlex, at this year’s Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit.”

At the event, Rick Moy will present during the session, “ShadowPlex – Deception 2.0 and Advanced Threat Defense,” which takes place on Monday, June 12 at 6:30 p.m. (ET). During the theater session, Moy will provide attendees with insights into how Acalvio’s patented innovations make deception deployments easy, automated, effective and scalable.
