WALTHAM, Mass. (April 23, 2013) – CounterTack, the industry’s first and only provider of in-progress cyber attack intelligence and response solutions, today announced its first international customer and strategic partner – Preventia, a leading IT security specialist, boutique integrator and professional services provider in London.
Cyber attackers target organizations’ most valuable corporate information. Despite advancement in security technology there is still a detection gap, with cyber attackers outpacing cyber defenses. And, there is a growing need in the UK and European market for solutions to help companies close that detection gap.
“We see a clear opportunity to introduce new technology in the UK and Europe that helps companies better understand the security challenges facing them – and gives them the intelligence they need to address them. That’s where CounterTack comes in,” said Nick Peaster, Managing Director, Preventia. “We’re excited to partner with CounterTack because they solve problems in ways that no other company currently can. Together, Preventia and CounterTack will provide the innovative solutions enterprise companies need to detect breaches early and protect their proprietary information.”
This partnership signifies CounterTack’s first major move into the internal cyber security marketplace. In addition to deploying CounterTack Scout for monitoring and protecting its own network and systems, Preventia will represent CounterTack’s full suite of products in the UK and its existing customer base. Preventia’s customers include some of the UK’s largest and most prestigious companies, including banks, gaming companies, and retailers.
“Invasive network, workstation and server attacks aren’t unique to this side of the pond. CounterTack’s partnership with Preventia signifies the increasing worldwide demand for solutions such as Scout and Sentinel,” said Neal Creighton, CEO, CounterTack. “We’re excited to partner with Preventia. Its reputation as a provider of new, innovative technologies makes it a great choice for our first international partner.”
Preventia will be exhibiting at Infosecurity Europe April 23 – 25, 2013 at Earls Court Exhibition Centre in London. Stop by Stand E22 to learn more about CounterTack’s full suite of products available through Preventia.
