CounterTack

CounterTack, the industry’s first and only in-progress attack intelligence and response solution provider, was born out of the critical need for enterprise and government organizations to approach security in a completely different way – combating advanced persistent threats with a new line of defense.

Each year, more than $32 billion is spent worldwide on security technologies, yet motivated cyber attackers are still finding ways to penetrate the most sophisticated, layered defenses. CounterTack solves this problem by offering the fastest detection and deepest attack intelligence available, enabling customers to actively engage with the attacker and take control over the impact of the attack – even while it’s happening.

Based in Waltham, Mass., CounterTack is backed by Fairhaven Capital and a group of private investors.

CounterTack gives security teams the power to own their endpoints with CounterTack Sentinel, CounterTack’s real-time endpoint threat detection and response platform.

CounterTack Sentinel gives organizations unprecedented context and visibility into advanced attacks, allowing for a complete picture of attack methods, attack intent and time spent inside those systems, throughout the attack lifecycle.

Real-time detection and forensic-level analysis set CounterTack Sentinel apart from other platforms, giving security teams the capability to actually see and understand attacks as they are happening, which creates more options for dealing with that threat.

CounterTack Sentinel’s stealthware is embedded into the kernel level on workstations and servers to capture all endpoint behaviors, keeping its driverless collection module hidden so attackers can’t see it. Endpoint data is then sent to Sentinel’s Big Data Analysis Cluster where it is analyzed based on specific behavior, and classified based on specific criteria met across key events.

CounterTack Sentinel’s Management Console gives security teams the real-time information and analytics necessary to quickly detect and analyze malicious endpoint behavior. Built on “Search” technology, teams can easily find the most critical information quickly to respond intelligently to attacks, and correlate behaviors across the enterprise.
