Dunbar Cybersecurity Adds TrapX Security's DeceptionGrid to Its Managed Security Services Platform

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 4, 2015) - TrapX Security™, a global leader in deception-based cyber security defense, today announced that Dunbar Cybersecurity, a leader in innovative cybersecurity solutions for a range of industries -- including finance, retail, healthcare, and education, has entered into a partnership to utilize the TrapX DeceptionGrid™ as part of its managed security services offerings. The collaboration strengthens TrapX's position in the North American managed security service provider (MSSP) space by providing Dunbar Cybersecurity's customers with the industry's leading deception-based technology.

DeceptionGrid automates the deployment of a network of camouflaged malware traps that are intermingled with real information technology resources. If malware touches DeceptionGrid just once, it sets off a high-confidence alert. Real-time automation isolates the malware and delivers a comprehensive assessment directly to an organization's security operations team.

"We've been protecting our customers' valuable physical assets for nearly 100 years, and, as those assets have gone digital, so have we," said Christopher Ensey, COO of Dunbar's Security Solutions business. "Cyber threats have increased substantially, and we believe that deception technology is now an essential capability for strong cyber defense. TrapX's DeceptionGrid technology integrates with our fully-integrated managed security platform to simplify and consolidate threat management for our customers in a way that's reliable and easy to manage, maintain and scale according to our clients' requirements."

"Today's attackers continue to demonstrate how often perimeter network security solutions fail. As a result, organizations and MSSPs alike are turning to deception-based solutions that are designed to substantially reduce the time to breach detection," said Carl Wright, general manager of TrapX Security. "Dunbar Security Solutions is an important partner for us, and we are pleased to have TrapX's DeceptionGrid included within Dunbar's ecosystem of network security protection against the latest advanced malware and persistent threats."
