Funding Raised: $30 Million and Major Investors are: Cisco Investments, Citi Ventures, Innovation Endeavors, Bessemer Venture Partners


Let' s see the approach adopted by Illusive Networks to counter Advanced attacks:-


Send ransomware the wrong way: Illusive creates deceptive ransomware targets in the network that distract ransomware and prevent it from attacking real company assets.

Neutralize ransomware before damage is done: As soon as Ransomware activity starts within your organization, Illusive’s deceptions lead the ransomware to reveal itself before any real data is encrypted, ensuring that no harm is done to real organizational assets and no disruption is caused to business operations.

Real-time alerts & forensics from the ransomware source: Illusive is the only vendor that neutralizes ransomware activity at its entry point on the source host, enabling early detection and high fidelity alerts that are only triggered by real ransomware activity.

4.Cybereason@cybereason: Cybereason is a cyber security firm headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts. It was founded in 2012. Cybereason automatically detects malicious activity and presents it in an intuitive way. It deploys easily with minimal organizational impact and provides end-to-end context of an attack campaign. Most organizations deploy Cybereason and start detecting attacks within 24 to 48 hours.

Channel of APT Security Used: Network /End-Points/Email

Funding Raised: $88.6Million and Major Investors are: CRV, Lockheed Martin, Softbank, Spark Capital

Let's see the approach adopted by Cyberreason to counter Advanced attacks:-

Endpoint and Server Sensors: Cybereason Sensors are deployed on endpoints and servers and collect data from across your environment 24/7 in real time. The sensors have no impact on productivity or user experience.

• The Hunting Engine is constantly fed with information received from the endpoint and server sensors. It uses artificial intelligence, machine learning and behavioural techniques to detect cyber attacks.

Cybereason comes preconfigured with a library of models that look for malicious activities and tools, tactics and procedures attackers use while executing their hacking campaigns.

5.Vectranetworks @Vectra_Networks: Vectra Networks is a U.S. business headquartered in San Jose, California, It was founded in 2012. Its products monitor internal network traffic to identify in real time cyber-attacks that are in progress.

Channel of APT Security Used: Network /End-Points/Email

Funding Raised: $86.54 Million and Major Investors are: Accel, AME Cloud Ventures, DAG Ventures, IA Ventures, Intel Capital, Juniper Networks

Let's see the approach adopted by Vectra Networks to counter Advanced attacks:-

Detections based on data science not signatures: Vectra uses a patent-pending combination of data science, machine learning, and behavioral analysis to reveal the fundamental characteristics of malicious behavior without the need for countless signatures and reputation-based rules

Adaptive Distributed Architecture: The Vectra Adaptive Distributed Architecture provides a simple and efficient way to extend cybersecurity to all areas of an organization. Security teams can seamlessly monitor remote sites where attackers start as well as internal network segments that contain key assets attackers will try to steal.

Detect all phases of an active attack: Vectra picks up where perimeter security stops by continuously analyzing all network traffic for malicious behaviors of an ongoing cyber attack. The solution detects all phases of attack including command and control, internal reconnaissance, lateral movement, ransomware activity, data exfiltration, and botnet monetization behaviors -- automatically and in real time

Funding Raised: $14.2 Million and Major Investors are: Atlas Venture, Matrix Partners, Rally Ventures

Let's see the approach adopted by Sqrrl to counter Advanced attacks:-

Sqrrl Enterprise enables the ingest and analysis of disparate data-sets to facilitate proactive threat detection, which is also known as cyber threat hunting.

Target: Scope the data sets that will be used in your investigation. Hunts can branch from various starting points or “trailheads”. These include indicator-driven structured hunts and hypothesis-driven exploratory hunts, both of which can be optimized with automated analytics and machine learning. 

Proactively and iteratively search through network and endpoint data to detect and isolate advanced threats that evade more traditional security solutions.

Disrupt: By seamlessly pivoting from hunting to forensic analysis, disrupt adversaries before they fully execute their attacks. These analyses can generate new indicators to feed into complementary security systems, creating an effective security feedback loop.
