CounterCraft Featured by Gartner, Only Deception Vendor in Threat Intel Reports

CounterCraft Featured by Gartner

CounterCraft has been featured in ten important Gartner reports since 2019. We’re going to focus on five of the most important reports in this post, and they are:


– Market Guide for Insider Risk Management Solutions (2020)
– Market Guide for Security Threat Intelligence Products and Services (2020)
– Hype Cycle for Security Operations, 2020
– 5 Tips to Protect Data for Midsize Enterprise Remote Workers (2020)
– Market Guide for Operational Technology Security (2019)


None of these reports are deception technology focused. That’s because deception is a means to an end, and the end is excellent, timely and targeted threat intelligence.

CounterCraft is the only deception vendor featured in the Gartner Market Guides for threat intel products.

This is because our Cyber Deception Platform offers something no other deception vendor offers—sophisticated deception environments that allow security teams to interact with and collect intelligence on any threat actors, on their terms.

It is also a versatile solution for multiple use cases, from insider threat to external, pre-breach threat intel gathering. As a solution that’s capable of doing a number of things well, your ROI is magnified.

CounterCraft’s solution has been proven to deliver threat intelligence that you can act upon immediately, delivered in real time and delivered with sufficient clarity to be able to make the right decisions when protecting your organization.

Read on to find out a bit more about why we were featured in each report:

Market Guide for Insider Risk Management Solutions (2020)

In this market guide, CounterCraft is the only deception vendor to be called out. Insider threat is a growing worry for organizations, and with the advent of remote work, companies have less control over workers, encouraging malicious activity. Insider threat is on everyone’s radar. And CounterCraft is the only deception vendor with the capability of detecting them.

Market Guide for Security Threat Intelligence Products and Services (2020)

Deception can be an incredibly effective way to gather threat intelligence that is specific to your organization and delivered in real-time. That’s why Gartner included CounterCraft in this market guide, the only deception vendor among traditional threat intel companies.

Hype Cycle for Security Operations (2020)

CounterCraft was included in Gartner’s famous Hype Cycle for Security operations, part of the landscape of tools that organizations need to keep their IT, OT, and IoT systems safe.

5 Tips to Protect Data for Midsize Enterprise Remote Workers (2020)

In a time when people were asked to rapidly deploy infrastructure that facilitated remote working, most often overlooking security in the process, this report highlights the fact that CounterCraft is effective at protecting those remote workers.

Market Guide for Operational Technology Security (2019)

CounterCraft’s presence in the OT Security market guide by Gartner is another example of the diversity of use cases the Cyber Deception Platform covers. That means the ROI of our solution is demonstrated.

The Gartner analysts are very excited about the possibilities of deception, and you should be, too.
