WALTHAM, Mass. and SAN FRANCISCO (March 1, 2016)— CounterTack, the leader in Big Data Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), today announced its new ecosystem of MSSPs as a strategic addition to its CyberPath Partner Program. The current CyberPath Partner Program enables partners of all sizes, vertical focus and geographic locations to deliver more Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) value to customers globally through its EDR suite of innovative technology. New MSSP business has contributed to CounterTack’s 900% growth in 2015.
“MSSPs are becoming more influential as trusted advisors to their customer base, and are driving value in solving some of the most challenging endpoint security problems across the enterprise,” said Neal Creighton, CEO, CounterTack. “The MSSP market is over $14B now and growing at an amazing clip, as enterprises and SMBs continue to embrace managed services for critical security challenges. Our new ecosystem within the CyberPath Partner Program embraces our MSSP partners in supporting partners with innovative technology and services through multiple use cases, and across numerous industry-specific focus areas.”
“There’s a growing movement in the cybersecurity industry, where enterprises are gravitating toward managed deployments, to reduce the time it takes to discover and triage security incidents,” said Doug Cahill, Sr. Security Analyst, ESG Global. “We are seeing end users move from taking a zero-trust approach toward consultants or MSSPs, to allowing organizations more access to their environment to help support more rapid threat detection and impact mitigation with a higher degree of efficacy. CounterTack delivers technology that fits this model perfectly by continuously monitoring endpoints, with an innovative capability to analyze threats at scale and respond accordingly."
In launching its new ecosystem approach within the CyberPath Partner Program, MSSPs globally are implementing CounterTack technology to accommodate customer demand for more visibility and more contextual threat interactions on endpoints. At the RSA 2016 Conference, CounterTack will be featuring a number of MSSP partners at two booths in the South Expo Hall, who will be demonstrating their next-generation endpoint security capabilities as one of the integral components of their dynamic managed SOC offerings.
