From my Gartner Blog – Deception as a Feature

One of the things we are also covering as part of our research on deception technologies is the inclusion of deception techniques as features in other security products. There are many solutions that could benefit from honeypots and honeytokens to increase their effectiveness: SIEM, UEBA, EDR, WAF, and others. We’ve been tracking a few cases where vendors added those features to their products and you can expect to see a few examples in our upcoming research.

Now, let’s explore this a bit further. The “pure deception” technologies market is still very incipient and not large in terms of revenue. The average ticket for this new pack of vendors is still small when compared to the cost of other security technologies, what makes me wonder if it is a viable market for more than a couple niche players. I don’t doubt there is a market, but it might not become big enough to accommodate all the vendors that are popping up every week.

Lawrence Pingree recently said, “deception is a new strategy that security programs can use for both detection and response”, and I certainly agree with him. My questions then is, considering deception keeps growing as an important component of security programs, will we see organizations adopting it via additional features of broader scope security solutions or will they necessarily have to buy (or build) exclusive platforms for it?

In the future, will we see organizations buying “deception products” or adding deception questions to their security products RFPs?
