Definition Edit

Proactive network defense

consists of deploying protective and detective measures that disrupt an adversary before an exploit has been successfully executed. By recognizing and engaging the adversary during the reconnaissance, weaponization, and delivery phases of the cyber attack life cycle, network defenders are able to deploy mitigations or take some other course of action to ensure that mission-critical assets are protected prior to an adversary successfully executing an exploit.[1]
