"Every company that has fallen prey to cyber attacks felt they were secure — until they discover that they've been breached, usually six months after it happened," said Shlomo Touboul, CEO, illusive networks. "Current cyber security systems are not effective against advanced persistent threats. illusive networks' Deceptions Everywhere architecture, which deceives and forces the attacker to be detected within three moves, is the only materially new cybersecurity breakthrough in the last five years. illusive networks is proud to be the recipient of the 2016 Cybersecurity Excellence Award, an honor that recognizes our pioneering threat deception approach to cybersecurity."
