Top-class service quality for our clients is the most important quality we focus on.
Effective Protection
With our innovative cyber security solutions, your IT/OT network would be protected. In case of any incident, our response would be the first and effective to protect your systems.
Why choose us ?
With this rapid growth in the digital era, cyber security is one of the most important topics on which organizations must focus to protect their systems from attackers. Cyber Security is a very important problem in this continuously evolving digital world. As people are connecting their devices to the internet, organizations are connecting their networks for internet access, they are risking themselves getting attacked by malicious actors who can harm their networks and do damage to the same. Any organization that has an IT/OT Network is susceptible to facing threats from attackers, be it, insider or an outsider.​ Organizations face damage to brand reputation, revenue loss, loss of intellectual property, etc.​ Government organizations can face loss of critical data which can result in a national security threat.​Deception is a layer of security that helps the organization to protect itself from imminent threats. Our first priority is protecting our client’s assets for which they put their trust in us. Using a combination of human intelligence and machine intelligence, our novel and innovative systems make the job easier for us.
Our Expertise & Services
Deception Technology Solution:

No security solution can stop all attacks from occurring on a network. Deception Technology helps to give attackers a false sense of security by making them believe they have gained a foothold on your network. Treacle Technologies delivers a high-end solution for deception technologies for IT/OT infrastructure. Our deception product can be integrated with your in-house SIEM solution with a live reporting dashboard. We are also developing our own SIEM solution that provides a live reporting dashboard involving Deception, Network Security, Endpoint Security, and many more such features that helps make your infrastructure secure.

Orchestration Engine Solution:

Orchestration Engine provides a mechanism to engage the attackers for a much larger period of time by orchestrating the deployment of Honeypots according to attacker behavior. We use Machine Learning techniques to develop our solution. Also, if integrated with IDS and Malware Analysis systems, Deception Technology solutions can be used to protect an organizational network with maximum effort.

Honeypot Development:

Honeypots are decoys that are used to distract malicious actors from the real system. Efficient honeypots must be designed in such a way that it becomes nearly impossible to differentiate them from a real system, hence distracting the attackers for a longer period of time. Our acute honeypot designing techniques make us unique from rest players in this field. After studying the network architecture and services used in the network, we can develop and deploy custom honeypots for your network that would help strengthen your network security.

Network Security:

Apart from Deception Technology, a total network monitoring system with strong policies is required to secure the network. We are developing a solution that will monitor your network for malicious traffic, secure endpoints, and critical nodes in your network. Along with continuous monitoring, there would be a set of strong policies set that will protect your network from an insider as well as external attackers.

Cyber Security Consultation:

We also provide cyber security consultation to organizations interested in securing their infrastructure. We would analyze the whole infrastructure as well as architecture, which might require multiple physical visits to the location. In the end, there would be a report stating the weak points and suggestions to secure your infrastructure.
