Phish the Phishers with Deception

Entice attackers with bait to reveal their methods – without them knowing they're being watched.

  • Detect attackers by luring them into a decoy minefield.
  • Reveal their intent, tactics, and targets—so security teams can pre-emptively adapt their security posture.
  • Set the trap as simply as flipping a switch.
