Cymmetria is a cyber deception startup focused on changing the asymmetry of cybersecurity, tilting the odds so that hackers are the ones who are left vulnerable. Cymmetria’s team consists of cyber deception and InfoSec veterans, military specialists, and APT and malware researchers. Cymmetria’s MazeRunner successfully impeded multiple attacks by making the hackers fall for it’s deception story.
MazeRunner gives organizations a platform for creating effective deception stories, which create realistic environments for hunting cyber attackers. Deception stories are comprised of breadcrumbs and decoys; they lead attackers to believe that they have successfully gained access to a target machine. Having gained a false sense of security, attackers reveal their attack tools and methods, which defenders are then able to document and analyze. Finally, MazeRunner communicates with an organization’s existing defense infrastructure, exporting information that allows for the creation of attack signatures. Fully customizable and easily deployed, MazeRunner does not burden organizational networks or IT security teams. It is a dynamic solution that helps organizations defend their valuable assets from ever-changing cyber threats.
