Engage for Vendors

MITRE Engage™ seeks to help the vendor community to lower the barrier to entry while raising the ceiling of expertise for those seeking to use adversary engagement technologies.

We at MITRE are strong believers that cyber deception technologies, unlike many other defensive technologies, are not “fire and forget.” Rather, deception technologies should be deployed as part of an intentional strategy that drives toward well understood goals. As such, Engage is designed to help vendors:

  • Provide additional resources to enable your customers to more effectively use your technologies. Engage is looking to work together with the vendor community to enable your customers to not just use adversary engagement technologies, but to use these technologies effectively.
  • Energize the denial, deception, and adversary engagement market by helping the community to understand the value proposition of adversary engagement for a defensive cyber strategy. Engage seeks to provide the community with the tools they need to understand how to use adversary engagement technologies to meet their goals, whether they are adversary engagement experts or novices.
  • Build standards and terminology to facilitate sharing and ultimate growth of the technology space. By helping the community to unify around standards for operational best practices, vocabulary, etc. Engage hopes to help facilitate information sharing as the community continue to mature and expand.
