  • Topic: Roi Abutbul, Javelin Networks

    Roi Abutbul
    Co-Founder and CEO at Javelin Networks. Their mission: "Protect every machine in the world connected to the Domain."

    Roi Abutbul is the Co-founder and CEO of Javelin Networks. Javelin Networks is leveraging security expertise and has proven entrepreneurship to build an early stage startup that is redefining network security. Targeted Attacks are based on one thing - the attackers knowledge of the Enterprise’s internal network topology.

    While it's nearly impossible to prevent them from gaining access to that knowledge, at Javelin we've taken a different approach - We simply take that knowledge away from attackers by masking the entire real topology. This is Javelin's Infinite Deception System; the moment attackers act on the masked topology they are caught red handed and you get an infallible alert in real time before any damage is done. No matter how big your Enterprise is, there's no IT or business impact.
