Deception Technology refers to a set of tools designed to deceive hackers and prevent them from doing significant damage once they have infiltrated a network. Deception Technologies improve on traditional “honeypots” in that they are more dynamic and act as more intelligent alert systems. They are also faster at detecting and remedying security threats. Machine Learning and the Internet of Things are also key components to developing threat detection technologies that communicate with both servers and devices. Potential drawbacks of this technology include its high maintenance costs and its unsuitedness to serve as an all-encompassing standalone network security solution.
