Acalvio Autonomous Deception Technology Provides Advanced Cyber Security to The Department of Homeland Security


ShadowPlex added to the list of approved products of the Ministry of Homeland Security CISA CDM

SANTA CLARA, California – (BUSINESS WIRE) – # AcalvioTech – Acalvio Technologies, a leader in cyber fraud, announced today that the FedRamp Ready ShadowPlex platform has been added to the Homeland Security Cyber ​​Security and Infrastructure Security Agency’s (CISA) Continuous Diagnostics and Approved List mitigation products (CDM).

ShadowPlex enables government organizations to execute three key aspects of rival engagement with operational efficiency:

Detection: Rapid detection of enemy presence both locally and in cloud infrastructure. Disorder: derailment and delay of attack Intelligence: easy collection of detailed forensics tactics, techniques and procedures

ShadowPlex leverages new artificial intelligence capabilities for ease of use, making fraud autonomous and effective, mixing and customizing deception for each subnet and endpoint. Because it does not require agents on production systems, ShadowPlex is low-risk to deploy, but also produces high-fidelity alerts. The solution was declared a finalist in the RSAC Innovation Sandbox.

The CISA Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation Program (CDM) is a dynamic approach to strengthening the cybersecurity of government networks and systems. The CDM program provides cyber security tools, integration services, and dashboards to participating agencies to help them improve their security positions by providing better visibility and awareness of their networks and defense against cyber adversaries.

U.S. federal agencies are under increased cyber threats, including state-sponsored cyber attacks. Advanced deception technology is best suited to defeat these attacks. A National Security Agency (NSA) article (“The Next Wave,” 2021) shows that about 78 percent of attackers are detected using fraudulent technology within 20 minutes of a network breach. CISA, in its Strategic Technology Plan for 2022-2026, has explicitly recommended the implementation of fraud technologies over the next two years by all Federal and Critical Infrastructure (CI) stakeholders for network security management.

“Acalvio ShadowPlex provides a powerful new ability to detect and respond to advanced threats, even zero-day attacks,” said Ram Varadarajan, co-founder and CEO of Acalvio Technologies. “Adding ShadowPlex to the CDM APL makes it easier for federal agencies to procure and apply modern fraud technology to combat sophisticated opponents.”

Inclusion in the CDM APL adds to the status of FedRamp Ready, SOC 2 and NIST 800-171 compliance achieved by Acalvio Technologies.
