CounterTack Scout to Provide Enhanced Visibility to Help Reduce Attacker ‘Dwell Time’
WALTHAM, Mass. (June 18, 2013) – CounterTack, the industry’s first and only provider of in-progress cyber attack intelligence and response solutions, today announced its partnership with rSolutions, an information security firm that provides a broad range of enterprise security solutions and professional consulting services. rSolutions will be reselling CounterTack’s Scout Solution for advanced threat detection and intelligence.
This partnership will expand rSolutions’ product portfolio and augment its offerings for enterprise customers. The addition of CounterTack’s Deep System Inspection (DSI) technology will help rSolutions customers not only reduce dwell time, but in the process give them access to the critical intelligence they need to better understand and combat advanced, and even unknown, threats. In partnering with rSolutions, CounterTack is expanding its presence into the government, mining and energy markets in Canada.
Security-savvy organizations understand that advanced threats are persistent, rendering many systems as continuously compromised. The more frequently companies are attacked, the more they become prone to follow-up attacks, underscoring the reality that blocking or alerting is no longer good enough. With deep behavioral analysis, CounterTack helps companies actively engage with attackers to defend critical systems at the endpoint.
"At rSolutions, we are constantly looking for unique and innovative solutions to help address our customers' biggest problems," said Richard Baker, managing partner at rSolutions. "Despite investing in the latest advanced threat detection offerings, our customers have crucial unanswered questions about how to assess, contain, and stop attacks that are still getting through. We believe CounterTack's revolutionary approach to endpoint security is a perfect complement to our current network-based solutions and will provide our customers with the critical intelligence needed to stop attacks."
“The ability to identify advanced attacks is essential. But that is only half the security battle,” said Neal Creighton, CEO, CounterTack. “The capability to minimize the impact of an attack by limiting its length or ‘dwell time’ in a system by actively engaging with attackers is now essential in limiting potential damage, understanding what the attacker is doing and targeting, and ultimately, diverting the attacker from production assets. The rSolutions and CounterTack partnership will provide companies with the tools and intelligence they need to identify and understand advanced attacks – empowering them to actively defend their businesses.”
