How is Threat Deception Client interest evolving from last year?

By Lawrence Pingree | October 17, 2017 | 1 Comment

Last year, I published a quick rundown of the searches on for Distributed Deception Platform providers using the provider name as a search term. I decided to take a look at the changes from year over year. Below is the results of my quick analysis and a table of Distributed Deception Platform providers and how client searches on have shifted from last year to this year (trailing 12 months). Essentially – client interest in Deception against attackers has grown by 6.6% over the past 12 months. For more information on this market, see my research titled “Competitive Landscape: Distributed Deception Platforms, 2016“.

    Thanks for data Lawrence. Great to see interest in DDPs in general growing, and across most vendors too.
