WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - Oct 16, 2012) - CounterTack, the industry's first and only provider of in-progress cyber attack intelligence and response solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with CyberSheath Services International, a new company that bridges the gap between business and IT risk with innovative risk management solutions.
Through this partnership, CounterTack and CyberSheath combine unique services and solution expertise to help customer organizations effectively combat today's advanced, targeted cyber attacks. By joining forces, the companies bring to market integrated technology solutions that enable real-time cyber attack intelligence and rich, actionable forensics, while meeting organizations' business-specific regulatory compliance requirements.
CounterTack's Event Horizon® is an active monitoring, detection and intelligence platform that enables organizations to identify, disrupt and respond to in-progress cyber attacks. CyberSheath's comprehensive compliance and threat mitigation services provide joint customers with build-it metrics, enabling them to measure their risk profiles, improve their security postures and deploy resources where they will have the greatest impact.
"CounterTack's Event Horizon platform for continuous, operating system-level monitoring and detection of in-progress attacks, coupled with CyberSheath's methodology for quantifying security risk against regulatory compliance, is a powerful force multiplier in risk management," said Eric Noonan, CEO, CyberSheath.
"In today's era of highly sophisticated corporate cyber attacks, CounterTack continues to build its strategic network of technology partners, helping us to provide organizations with unmatched attack intelligence and response solutions to meet their unique security needs," said Neal Creighton, CEO, CounterTack. "The new CounterTack CyberSheath reseller and referral agreement allows us to offer one-of-a-kind cyber security solutions to a far-reaching customer base, and we look forward to a mutually beneficial business partnership."

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.
