How can I add or remove deception files?
Last Updated 8 months ago

Cigent allows you to create deception files as an added layer of protection. Deception files are interesting looking files an attacker would want to open.

  • Click on the Deception tab to access your deception files
  • Click "Show All"
  • Authenticate with Cigent
  • You should now see the deception files that are currently being used
  • Click remove to remove any deceptions files you do not want to use
  • Click Add a Deception file if you would like to and another file
  • Browse to the directory where you would like your file created, name the file and save it
*Sometimes it is necessary to move this file if backup software backs up the drive it is on so it will not trigger a security event.
