LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Black Hat North America Conference--CounterTack today announced that the company received ”Strong” ratings across all five categories in Gartner’s June 2016 Comparison of EDR Technologies and Solutions Report for Sentinel, its big data endpoint detection and response (EDR) product.
CounterTack is the only EDR vendor that effectively combines continuous, behaviorally-based detection and response capabilities with predictive, in-memory binary analysis for the enterprise. Sentinel now integrates CounterTack’s patented memory analysis technology Digital DNA® to give customers more context and visibility around how threats might execute across their endpoint environments.
Gartner’s comparison provides an assessment of how products address the key capabilities and use cases identified for EDR tools. CounterTack received “Strong” ratings across all five of the enterprise use cases:
- Incident data search and investigation
- Alert triage or suspicious activity validation
- Suspicious activity detection
- Threat hunting or data exploration
- Stopping malicious activity
“We believe Gartner’s report further validates that CounterTack is leading the way in delivering innovative EDR technology,” said Neal Creighton, CEO, CounterTack. “In order to protect themselves against the most advanced and aggressive attacks, enterprises are recognizing that endpoint security is an essential component of modern security architecture. Our unique approach to EDR focuses on real attacker and insider behavior, helping today’s security teams in identifying threats before they happen, as they are in progress and to triage post-incident damage. CounterTack is committed to providing the most innovative and adaptable solutions that will protect enterprises against the most dangerous cybercriminals.”
Sentinel is the only EDR platform that offers organizations the flexibility, scale and integration necessary to counter escalating unknown endpoint threats, enterprise-wide. Built on top of a Big Data architecture to counter endpoint attacks at-scale, Sentinel leverages tamper-resistant data collection technology to capture malicious behavior on workstations and servers. Sentinel dramatically reduces the impact of advanced attacks in real-time and false-positives coming from other security tools, giving teams an opportunity to defend the enterprise before incidents escalate. Sentinel now integrates CounterTack’s patented memory analysis technology Digital DNA® to give customers more context and visibility around how threats might execute across their endpoint environments.
CounterTack offers additional cutting-edge endpoint protection technology with Responder® PRO, a malware analysis and reverse engineering solution, and Active Defense™, behavioral-based malware detection. More on these products can be found on CounterTack’s website.
CounterTack will be located at 554 at Black Hat.
