May 26, 2015 - Waltham, MA – CounterTack, the leader in Big Data Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), today announced that its CEO, Neal Creighton, will participate in the EDR market panel discussion, moderated by Lawrence Pingree, Research Director with Gartner, at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit. The panel will take place on June 8, 2015 from 10:00 am – 10:45 am EST at the Gaylord Resort, National Harbor, MD.

The panel, entitled ‘Top Market Trends in the Endpoint Detection and Response Market,’ will focus on common malware techniques, how products deal with the malware problem and what future techniques organizations should be implementing on their endpoints. The panel will discuss what the most critical security challenges being faced on the endpoint are currently, what EDR technologies really do and how they are evolving. Additionally, the panel will cover the provider strengths and weaknesses.

Also, from a recent Gartner report titled ‘Best Practices for Detecting and Mitigating Advanced Persistent Threats,’ Gartner recommends to end-users to: “Consider deploying Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) technologies. These technologies specifically augment endpoints with additional telemetry gathering and threat detection capabilities that go beyond traditional endpoint protection platforms.”1

The Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit draws enterprise-wide business and IT professionals in the industry looking to start the conversation on topics that are at the top of every organization. This year’s summit offers in-depth programs, such as the Chief Information Security Office Program and IT Security Program, and opportunities to gain insight to the evolving threat landscape to further align security strategies with enterprise objectives. In addition to peer networking, attendees can connect with Gartner Analysts who attend sessions and round-tables while also being available for one-on-one meetings.
