TrapX Wins Intel Security Innovation Alliance Partner of the Year

DeceptionGrid Recognized for Its Ability to Defeat Advanced Persistent Threats, Zero-Day Events and Other Sophisticated Malware

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 10, 2015) - TrapX, a global leader in advanced cyber security defense, today announced that it has been awarded the Intel Security Innovation Alliance Partner of the Year for Innovation. The company's DeceptionGrid™ technology was recognized by Intel Security for its ability to better meet and defeat advanced persistent threats (APTs), zero day events and other sophisticated malware. TrapX joined the Intel Security Innovation Alliance™ partner program in April to integrate its technology with McAfee Advanced Threat Defense.

Last month, the company announced it has successfully completed integration with the McAfee® Data Exchange Layer (DXL) secure communication platform. TrapX DeceptionGrid communicates directly with the McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange (TIE) over DXL -- providing actionable intelligence and initiating response to all solutions integrated on DXL.

"We are very pleased to be recognized by Intel Security as their Security Innovation Partner of the Year," said Greg Enriquez, chief executive officer for TrapX. "By integrating our DeceptionGrid software with McAfee's TIE over their DXL, we are providing customers with the ability to rapidly leverage the actionable intelligence provided by our advanced threat solution within a multi-vendor security strategy. This is a huge win for our mutual customers."

"When we evaluate security partners, we're looking for organizations that deliver advanced, optimized security solutions to customers," said D. J. Long, senior director, head of the Security Innovation Alliance at Intel Security. "TrapX's DeceptionGrid clearly meets those key requirements with the platform's ability to allow direct remediation actions to be taken, such as shutting down an attack in-flight and quarantining compromised assets in real-time. These features enhance a customer's ability to identify and defeat many advanced threats, such as the APT, zero-day events and other sophisticated malware attacks. We congratulate TrapX for this deserving win."

DeceptionGrid automates the deployment of a network of camouflaged malware traps that are intermingled with real information technology resources. These traps appear identical in every way to real IT assets. Once sophisticated malware has slipped past other primary cyber defenses and penetrated the enterprise, it continues to move laterally to find high-value targets. Just one touch of DeceptionGrid sets off a high-confidence alert. Through the communication on the DXL platform, alerts can drive actions by other solutions to mitigate the attack rapidly and resume normal operations.

TrapX will also be demonstrating DeceptionGrid at next year's RSA conference taking place in San Francisco February 29 through March 4, 2016.
