CyberTrap is the European leader in deception technology, which enables large commercial and governmental organizations to face current cyber threats in a new and unique way. It redirects attackers to its digital playground and lets them believe that they succeeded with their breach. The Austrian based company with offices in Vienna and Wiener Neustadt is focused on deception technology with its innovative SaaS solution “CyberTrap”. In December 2016, the leading Swiss telecom and IT company Swisscom became a shareholder of CyberTrap Software.
CyberTrap is a virtualized, isolated and controlled environment that is designed to be an attractive attack target. For the first time, this creates an opportunity to observe attacker’s behavior and analyze it in order to derive a unique local threat intelligence.
