Attivo Networks Signs Distributor Agreement With Macnica Networks in Japan

Large Value-Added Distributor Will Bring Deception Based Detection Technology to Corporations, Government Agencies and Educational Institutions Throughout the Country

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 4, 2016) - Attivo Networks®, the leader in deception for cyber security threat detection, and Macnica Networks, which provides network devices and security solutions throughout Japan, have signed an agreement for Macnica Networks to distribute the Attivo Networks solution.

Macnica Networks provides IT solutions including networking, the import and export of security-related software, development sales consulting and maintenance services. Its customers include large Japanese companies in addition to government agencies and educational institutions.

The Attivo Networks innovative approach to cyber threat detection provides a comprehensive deception platform that in real-time detects inside-the-network BOTs and advanced persistent threats (APTs) that have by-passed all other prevention systems. Traditional threat detection solutions are designed to monitor network traffic and look for suspicious attack behavior base on known signature patterns. Instead, Attivo provides a non-disruptive, scalable solution that instantly detects the presence of attackers, identifies their intent and provides intelligence to stop the attack. The Deception Platform includes a wide variety of deception techniques, decoys, and engagement servers and is designed for user networks, data centers, cloud and Industrial Control ICS:SCADA environments. SCADA protects devices used to monitor and control most manufacturing operations as well as critical infrastructure such as natural gas, oil, water, and electric power distribution and transmission systems.

This reseller agreement marks the first partnership for Attivo Networks in Asia and expands the company's ability to provide deception solutions to Japanese and global customers.

"Cyber attacks are a worldwide problem," comments Masahiro Miyabukuro, President of Macnica Networks. "Deception technology is a new solution for our customers who are concerned about the number of breaches that are occurring and increasing every year. Attivo Network's solution will be a welcome addition to our customers' security platforms."

"We are extremely pleased to be partnering with Macnica Networks," comments Tushar Kothari, CEO of Attivo Networks. "They are one of the leading distributors in Japan with customers in multiple commercial markets as well as government agencies. With Macnica Networks's strong history of delivering security solutions to major organizations, we expect to see significant adoption of our solutions throughout the market."
