What is VectorNet?

VectorNet is a "honeypot" program that emulates open ports and servers and logs any connections or attacks. By simulating servers, it is capable of blocking attacks that would normally go undetected. VectorNet is capable of listening for attacks on 65535 TCP ports and 65535 UDP ports simultaneously. With the ability to scale the number of servers and ports, VectorNet can monitor a single port or every port available. This flexibility allows the user to emulate a single server or multiple servers, depending on the user's need. Furthermore any connection attempts are logged in detail, including time of attack, IP and GeoIP data.  The detailed logs can be accessed via a secure web-interface with tools for viewing log statistics, an interactive world map, searching, and more.

Why Do We Need Honeypots?

Modern business computer networks house a host of sensitive data. Ranging from customer information including credit card and phone numbers to business secrets, failing to protect this data from hackers can wreak havoc on any business reputation as well as the personal lives of employees and clients. In a study conducted through 2015 and 2016, it was found that 43% of all cyber attacks targeted small business. And, 60% of small companies that experience a cyber attack go out of business within 6 months of the attack. Surveying businesses during that time frame, they found that 55% of small businesses had experienced a cyber attack. (To view some of this study and how it relates to small business without signing up for the report, click here.) A honeypot, when used correctly, is an effective and powerful tool in protecting your entire network from infiltration.

Why VectorNet?

Most honeypot software that accomplishes the same purpose as VectorNet are marketed to large companies and corporations that can afford large, expensive packages that are far out of reach for small business. Our goal is to make this powerful security solution available to smaller businesses through small packages suitable to their budget. Don't let your business become another cyber security statistic.
