CounterTack and eSentire Partner to Provide Improved Insight Into Attacker Behaviors

Partnership Empowers Customers to Better Understand and Respond to Advanced Threats

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 25, 2014) - RSA Conference - CounterTack, a pioneer in delivering real-time endpoint threat detection, context and visibility around targeted attacks, and eSentire, the leader in active threat protection solutions and managed security services, today announced a new strategic alliance which will give companies the tools to better understand and respond to cyber attacks.

The strategic alliance between CounterTack and eSentire gives security teams the power to own their endpoints with Sentinel and the ability to continuously monitor for and defend enterprises from advanced, never-before-seen cyber threats and non-malware based attacks with eSentire's Active Threat Protection services.

"This alliance is CounterTack's first MSSP partnership in North America," said Avi Legmann, Senior Vice President of Business Development of CounterTack. "The combination of CounterTack and eSentire technology gives organizations the tools they need to better understand and respond faster to attacks. Specifically, we can now offer eSentire customers added visibility into their systems, coupled with endpoint threat detection."

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. It gives security teams the capability to actually see and understand attacks as they are happening, which creates more options for dealing with that threat. eSentire's Network Interceptor Platform challenges legacy security approaches, combining behavior-based analytics, immediate mitigation and actionable intelligence on a 24x365 basis. eSentire's dedicated team of security experts constantly monitor customer networks to detect and block cyber attacks in real-time.

"The blending of CounterTack's real-time endpoint threat detection and response capabilities, with eSentire's powerful behavior-based threat monitoring and mitigation services, produce one of the most effective market-ready cyber security solutions available," said eSentire CEO J. Paul Haynes. "Ultimately remediation requires human intuition to detect, decide and act against today's increasingly sophisticated threat adversaries."

CounterTack is exhibiting at the 2014 RSA Conference in the South Expo Hall, booth #933. Stop by to view live demonstrations of Sentinel and for book signings with CounterTack CTO Michael Davis and Chief Researcher Sean Bodmer.

eSentire senior executives will conduct briefings and exhibit at RSA Conference 2014 in booth #520 (South Expo Hall), featuring exclusive demonstrations and information sharing around incident response and information security best practices. eSentire also will be holding a highly anticipated panel discussion led by Gus Hunt, recently retired chief technology officer at the CIA.
