To further punctuate the company’s recent business milestones, CounterTack | MCSI has also accomplished the following:

  • Series C Funding.
    Prior to the successful acquisition, CounterTack had closed a $15 million Series C round of funding, in June, led by TenEleven Ventures, with other new investors including EDBI (the corporate investment arm of the Singapore Economic Development Board), along with the participation of existing investors.
  • Integration with Blue Coat Systems.
    Announced today by CounterTack | MCSI, and last week by Blue Coat, CounterTack | MCSI’s Sentinel Big Data EDR platform now integrates with Blue Coat Systems’ CAS (Content Analysis System) and SA (Security Analytics) platform.
