Modern Honey Network (MHN)

The Modern Honey Network (MHN) software, created by the Google Ventures-backed startup ThreatStream, automates much of the process of setting up and monitoring honeypots, as well as gleaning threat intelligence from them. An API allows it to integrate with IDSes, IPSes, application-layer firewalls, SIEM, and other security tools to set up defenses against attacks it detects.

Honeypots — basically lures posing as machines that let organizations gather intelligence and study the behaviors of attackers — long have been a popular and valuable tool for security researchers. There are plenty of open-source honeypot tools available today, but the high maintenance and complexity of deploying and running these lures have made them unrealistic security options for most businesses.
