Today we are excited to announce the Modern Honey Network (MHN). MHN is a enterprise ready honeypot management system which enables organizations to create a fully functional active-defense network in minutes.
Honeypots have not received wide adoption as an enterprise defense largely because the deployment and management has been a complicated process reserved for security companies and security researchers. MHN is a new open source project we are releasing today to make "Active-Defense" leveraging honeypots more widely adopted by enterprise security teams!
