Nfusion Wins Gold for Deception Based Security in 2018 Info Security PG’s Global Excellence Awards

Ntrepid’s Secure Virtual Desktop Excels in Providing Misattribution
for Online Research and Investigations

HERNDON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ntrepid Corporation, a provider of cutting-edge cybersecurity solutions,
today announced that Info Security Products Guide has named Nfusion, the
company’s secure managed attribution platform, a Gold winner in the 14th
Annual Global Excellence Awards® for Deception Based Security. Nfusion
also earned Silver for Best Security Products and Solutions for
Government. Capitalizing on a 20-year history of protecting the national
security community’s cyber interests, Nfusion empowers analysts to
proactively hunt threats and targets, while avoiding dangerous counter

Without proper obfuscation of an analyst’s identity and location,
conducting covert operations on the web, or gathering open source
intelligence (OSINT), can quickly attract attention from the very
adversaries that researchers are trying to explore. In response, these
targets may respond with misinformation, adaptations to their plans, or
deploy an attack against the researcher, ultimately disrupting an
investigation and putting sensitive networks and data in jeopardy.
Nfusion combats these risks by combining a hardened virtualized desktop
with identity hiding technologies, enabling analysts and researchers to
perform stealthy cyber operations and engage online without being
identified by their targets or revealing their mission activities.

“The ability to conduct cyber operations while controlling your
location, concealing your corporate affiliation, and preventing activity
tracking, is invaluable to any government or enterprise organization,”
said Lance Cottrell, Chief Scientist at Ntrepid. “We are extremely proud
to be recognized as an industry leader by Info Security Products Guide
for our work providing deception based and misattribution solutions to
government researchers and analysts.”

Without meticulous protection, browsers create a digital fingerprint
that can reveal a user’s exact source identity and location. Nfusion
manages this fingerprint and masks potentially identifying attributes,
such as applications, operating systems, language, browser version and
plugins – thus, boosting the user’s advantage by safeguarding their
activities. In addition, Nfusion feels and operates like a familiar
desktop and browsing experience, making the platform easy and efficient
to deploy, train users, maintain and support.

Cottrell will be facilitating a Peer2Peer session at the 2018 RSA
Conference in San Francisco to engage with attendees about the
techniques associated with deception-based security practices. The
session, Infiltration:
Successes and Pitfalls of Penetrating Hostile Online Groups
will invite attendees to share their experiences trying to permeate a
target’s territory – including what works well, what backlash have they
seen, and how to improve engagement with adversaries. Conference
attendees can join this session on Wednesday, April 18th at
9:15am PT.
