Protecting sensitive data and detecting data loss is difficult, overly complicated and resource intensive.

It’s even more complicated if you have outsourced your data management.

The Ponemon 2017 Cost of Data Breach Study showed that the average time to detection of a cyber security breach is approximately 206 days, with the vast majority of discovery still coming from external sources and not by the organisation that is managing the data.

Most current data loss detection and prevention methods are expensive to implement, generate large volumes of false positives and can still be defeated. They also do not tell the organisation, who, what, where and why.

Traditional cyber detection limitations

Regain the cyber advantage

Trapdocs Cyber deception technology will enable your organisation to regain the cyber advantage and protect your systems from data loss. We make document traps to discover data theft and unauthorised users and learn about them. The traps look like real documents, but they don’t contain anything of value. Trapdocs integrates into your existing cyber security investments allowing you to be notified if anyone accesses them.

Trapdocs provides a low overhead, low signature, high probability files access and data loss alert capability, which increases the cost to threats of unauthorised access to your data and file stores. These abilities increase your overall security of your system without affecting your normal operations and overcome issues often associated with many cyber intrusion detection systems.
