TrapX Security Achieves Cisco Compatibility Certification from the Cisco Solution Partner Program

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 4, 2017) - TrapX Security®, a global leader in deception-based advanced cyber-security defense, announced that its DeceptionGrid platform has successfully achieved Cisco compatibility certification with Cisco's Identity Services Engine (ISE) Platform Exchange Grid (pxGrid) and Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) ThreatGRID. The Internet of Everything (IoE) continues to bring together people, processes, data and things to enhance the relevancy of network connections. As a member of the Cisco® Solution Partner Program, TrapX is able to quickly create and deploy solutions to enhance the capabilities, performance and management of the network to capture value in the IoE.

DeceptionGrid offers a full suite of deception techniques designed to bait attackers by deploying camouflaged traps and tokens among actual IT resources that appear identical in every way to these resources and that are connected to Internet of things (IoT) devices. The DeceptionGrid integration into Cisco ISE pxGrid and AMP ThreatGRID greatly expands the TrapX ecosystem for detection and response by offering deception technology to customers and providing actionable threat intelligence throughout Cisco's security portfolio of products.

"TrapX's Cisco Compatible Certification provides a new set of security options for customers looking to combat and defeat sophisticated threats that have already breached the perimeter and are moving around the network in search of valuable assets," said Greg Enriquez, CEO of TrapX Security. "Customers can now benefit from DeceptionGrid's threat-intelligence capabilities to quickly detect zero-day and other sophisticated attacks in real time. Customers can then resume normal operations before attackers can steal critical data or disrupt operations."

The Cisco Solution Partner Program, part of the Cisco Partner Ecosystem, unites Cisco with third-party independent hardware and software vendors to deliver integrated solutions to joint customers. The Cisco Compatible Certification now enables TrapX to be recognized as a Cisco Preferred Solution Partner.
