Posted by Tom Bain   |   April 14, 2015

April 14, 2015 - Waltham, MA – CounterTack, the leader in Big Data Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), today announced that its CEO, Neal Creighton, will join other enterprise security industry experts on a panel discussion around next-generation endpoint security at the upcoming America's Growth Capital (AGC) Partners' 11th Annual Information Security and Broader Technology Growth Conference. The panel event will take place on Monday, April 20, 2015 in San Francisco at the Park Central San Francisco Hotel from 4:15-5:00 p.m. PST.  

AGC’s West Coast Technology Conference is one of the largest and most influential technology conferences in the U.S. drawing in over 1200 technology entrepreneurs, investors and buyers over a two day event. This year, the 11th Annual West Coast conference will feature roughly 250 presentations by CEOs from both public and private technology companies and 15 panel discussions on timely tech and investing trends.

Moderator Nick Coleman, Global Head of Cyber Security Intelligence Services, IBM, will lead the discussion with panelists:

  • Neal Creighton, CEO, CounterTack
  • Dan Ross, President and CEO, Promisec
  • Dick Williams, CEO, Webroot
  • Jim Brennan, Director of Strategy and Product Management, IBM Security Systems
  • Marcin Kleczynski, CEP, Malwarebytes

Due in large part to the increasing number of vulnerable access points, endpoints have become increasingly desirable to cybercriminals looking to carry out sophisticated attacks. Today’s endpoint security calls for solutions with more complex capabilities to fight malware while also protecting data. As the traditional end-user evolves, security solutions must evolve with them to meet the challenges of protecting not only desktop PCs but laptops, tablets and smartphones. The panel discussion, focused on next generation endpoint security protection, will cover the topics surrounding endpoints and cybersecurity in a “bring your own device” environment such as:

  • The growing adoption of mobile services such as mobile payments
  • Company-issued mobile devices being used for personal matters  
  • The real security challenges within mobility and its impact on the endpoint landscape
