WALTHAM, Mass.(August 5, 2015) - CounterTack | MCSI, the leader in Big Data Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), today announced formal integration with Blue Coat Systems’ CAS (Content Analysis System) and SA (Security Analytics) platform. This integrated offering with Blue Coat Systems’ technology is through CounterTack | MCSI’s Sentinel Big Data EDR platform, and is now generally available for CounterTack | MCSI and Blue Coat customers.
As part of this integration, CounterTack | MCSI has joined Blue Coat’s Endpoint Alliance Ecosystem, which was developed to share actionable intelligence gathered from endpoint security vendors with the entire Blue Coat security portfolio, enhancing how Blue Coat customers protect, detect and respond to security incidents.
“With the increased demand for more actionable intelligence from security operations and incident response teams, CounterTack | MCSI and Blue Coat are delivering fully-integrated detection and response capabilities,” said Peter Doggart, vice president, business development, Blue Coat Systems, Inc. “CounterTack| MCSI’s Sentinel platform offers the flexibility and advanced endpoint investigation capabilities to more quickly respond to advanced network or endpoint threats. We’ve built end-to-end integration that enables operators of either platform to reduce the time to detection, investigation and response to security incidents.”
This announcement comes on the heels of CounterTack’s acquisition last month of ManTech Cyber Solutions International (MCSI), a commercial software division of ManTech International Corporation, (Nasdaq:MANT) to form CounterTack | MCSI.
Additionally, the organization just announced a $15 million Series C round of funding, led by TenEleven Ventures, and a new release of Responder® PRO Subscription, an addition to its product portfolio, the market-leading malware reverse engineering solution on the market, now with Linux support, making it available now for online purchase in its new eShop for incident responders.
“With the momentum we’ve built over the past month, we’re excited to partner with Blue Coat to deliver a powerful, integrated solution to customers of both companies,” said Avi Legmann, senior vice president, business development, CounterTack | MCSI. “Our integration is unique in that either technology can detect threats effectively, and both platforms can perform the analysis or response necessary based on severity levels, root cause determined and assets impacted. We look forward to the go-to-market possibilities with a truly integrated EDR-network security solution.”
“Across the endpoint security landscape, it has become essential for any security ops or IR teams to have the flexibility to investigate threats outside the endpoint for further context,” said Doug Cahill, senior analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “The ability to rapidly detect and investigate endpoint activity or behaviors observed on the network is critical in the enterprise, which is how CounterTack | MCSI and Blue Coat have architected their integration – its almost detection-agnostic, meaning, it doesn’t matter which technology detects the threat. Today’s endpoint security vendors will need to continue to make smart decisions on how their partnering strategies will align with their business model going forward.”
CounterTack | MCSI will debut its Blue Coat integration with its Sentinel Big Data EDR platform, in addition to its full suite of EDR products at Black Hat USA 2015, August 5 & 6, at booths 1147 and 447, Mandalay Bay Casino & Resort, Las Vegas, NV.
