CounterTack Joins McAfee Security Innovation Alliance

CounterTack, a pioneer in delivering real-time endpoint threat detection, context and visibility around targeted attacks, today announced it has joined the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance (McAfee SIA) program, a premier technology partnering program.

“In today’s evolving threat landscape, organizations are looking for innovative, integrated solutions that will provide them with advanced endpoint protection,” said Ed Barry, vice president of the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance. “We are pleased to welcome CounterTack into the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance program. With CounterTack Sentinel, our customers will benefit from quicker threat detection and shorter response time.”

Recently named to the list of “Cool Vendors” in the Gartner Cool Vendors for Application and Endpoint Security 2014 report, CounterTack’s Sentinel platform delivers the most scalable, enterprise-class endpoint threat detection and response on the market. Once deployed, the platform provides a complete view of attack methods and attack intent through behavioral analysis to provide teams with key attacker activity, throughout the attack lifecycle. Customers and partners benefit from CounterTack Sentinel through its real-time detection and forensic-level analysis capability. Security teams have context on specific attacks and more visibility on endpoint workstation, laptop and server endpoint threats across their enterprise. Joining the McAfee SIA program expands CounterTack’s global reach in helping companies get control of their endpoints and turn the tables on attackers.

“Joining the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance program further validates CounterTack’s ability to seamlessly collaborate with some of the most trusted leaders in the security industry,” said Avi Legmann, SVP, business development, CounterTack. “Unlike threat detection and analysis that focuses solely on binaries, or simply takes snapshots of an organization’s attack landscape like Mandiant, Sentinel provides continuous monitoring and analysis of the actual behavioral actions that contribute to broader attacks. We are committed to providing our customers, partners and managed services organizations with the most innovative solutions to protect their critical information assets, and look forward to strengthening our partnership innovations with McAfee.”
