WALTHAM, Mass. (February 15, 2013) – CounterTack, the industry’s first and only provider of in-progress cyber attack intelligence and response solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with Cymbel Corporation, a provider of next-generation defense-in-depth for information security.
Today’s highly motivated and persistent cyber attackers specifically target enterprise organizations’ trade secrets, source codes, sales proposals and other valuable corporate information. Despite massive investments and continuing advancements in security technologies, the detection gap persists, with cyber attacker innovations outpacing cyber defenses.
“Today’s reality is there is no such thing as 100 percent prevention, and targeted attacks against the enterprise are inevitable,” said Bill Frank, Principal, Cymbel Corporation. “By joining forces, Cymbel and CounterTack are bringing powerful solutions to market to detect compromised systems early in the ‘kill chain’ before confidential data can be exfiltrated.”
With this partnership, Cymbel is leveraging CounterTack’s patented Deep System Inspection products to enhance its unique Zero Trust approach that protects critical enterprise assets while cost-effectively meeting compliance requirements. CounterTack’s Deep System Inspection products monitor file, network and process activities deep within the operating system layer. The company’s patented monitoring and intelligence gathering technology provides a new dimension of visibility into the multitude of previously undetectable attacks, including the problematic custom targeted attacks.
“Security teams must equip themselves with real-time situational awareness to identify, understand and combat today’s highly innovative attackers,” said Neal Creighton, CEO, CounterTack. “We are pleased to be partnering with Cymbel to bring our unmatched cyber attack detection capabilities to enterprise customers with a comprehensive solution that integrates seamlessly with existing incident response processes.”
