Deception-based Breach Protection
Deceive, Expose and Eliminate External and Internal Threats
FortiDeceptor: Deception-based Breach Protection Overview
According to Verizon’s 2019 Data Breach Investigation Report, two-thirds of breaches found were from external actors while the remaining one-third involved internal actors. Unfortunately, today’s reactive security solutions are narrowly focused in either protecting external or internal threats but not both.
FortiDeceptor is based on deception technology that complements an organization’s existing breach protection strategy, designed to deceive, expose and eliminate attacks originating from either external or internal sources before any real damage occurs.

Apr 9, 2019Leveraging Deception for Breach ProtectionFortiDeceptor levels the playing field by automating the creation of dynamic decoys that are dispersed throughout the IT environment. Because attackers are unable to determine which assets are fake and which are real, their time advantage is reduced or eliminated altogether.
FortiDeceptor: Deception-based Breach Protection Product Details
FortiDeceptor, a Fabric-enabled deception approach allows organizations to rapidly create a fabricated deception network through the automatic deployment of decoys and lures that seamlessly integrate with an existing IT/OT infrastructure to lure attackers into revealing themselves. FortiDeceptor helps serve as an early warning system by providing accurate detection that correlates an attacker’s activity details and lateral movement that feeds up to a broader threat campaign. Threat intelligence captured from decoys is shared within the Security Fabric so automatic protection can be applied, disrupting attacks before any real damage is done.
Features and Benefits
GUI driven threat map quickly uncovers threat campaigns targeting your organization
Security Fabric integration with FortiGate provides real-time and severity-based blocking of attackers before real damage occurs
Centrally manage and automate the deployment of pre-built or custom decoys and lures
Unified IT-OT breach protection
Redirect attacks across both IT and OT critical assets
FortiDeceptor Models and Specifications

The virtual appliance of FortiDeceptor can be deployed on VMware and KVM platforms.
FortiGuard Security Services included in FortiDeceptor's ARAE engine
FortiDeceptor Anti-Reconnaissance and Anti-Exploit Service (ARAE) correlates attacker activities and integrates contextual intelligence through FortiGuard services mentioned below, resulting in single pane timeline-based threat campaign.
FortiGuard Antivirus protects against the latest viruses, spyware, and other content-level threats. It uses industry-leading advanced detection engines to prevent both new and evolving threats from gaining a foothold inside your network and accessing its invaluable content.
FortiGuard IPS protects against the latest network intrusions by detecting and blocking threats before they reach network devices.
Protects your organization by blocking access to malicious, hacked, or inappropriate websites.
Today's targeted attacks can originate from both external or internal to an organization. Advanced threat deception is key to providing early detection and response before an attack is allowed to complete its full lifecycle. This fully functional FortiDeceptor demo provides users the experience to centrally manage decoys and lures, with actionable visibility to threat campaigns, and the ability to easily integrate with FortiGates to block these attacks.
Below are answers to common questions regarding FortiDeceptor and related services:
How does FortiDeceptor work?
Decoys and lures are deployed to simulate real endpoints and servers with services, data and applications. Additionally, tokens can be embedded to real endpoints to redirect attacks to the decoys. Once a threat actor logs into a decoy, all activities are captured and the security administrator receives an alert directly or via Security Fabric integration with FortiSIEM, FortiAnalyzer including 3rd party SIEM for alerts and reporting. The security team can perform a full investigation, followed with either manual remediation or allow FortiDeceptor to perform automated mitigation such as device quarantine via Security Fabric integration with FortiGate.
What Decoy OS does FortiDeceptor support?
Currently, FortiDeceptor supports Windows (pre-built/custom), Linux, and SCADA.
Does FortiDeceptor fit my security infrastructure?
FortiDeceptor is offered as an appliance and VM form-factor that offers a range of deployment options.
How fast can FortiDeceptor be up and running?
Security operators can leverage built-in Deception OSes (Windows, Linux, and SCADA) to automate the deployment of decoys and lures on Day-1. Optionally, custom Windows OS decoys can also be deployed.
