Industry Veteran Will Help Develop Acquisition Strategy for Leading EDR Vendor
Waltham, MA – CounterTack, the leading provider of Predictive Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) technology for the enterprise, today announced Michael Cody has joined its Board of Advisors. Having served as vice president of several large technology companies including Raytheon and EMC, Cody brings his extensive knowledge in corporate development to CounterTack.
Recruited by Raytheon’s Board and CEO in 2009, Cody was hired to strengthen Raytheon’s acquisition capabilities. During his tenure at Raytheon, Cody was responsible for closing over 15 acquisitions, including many of the industry’s most strategic transaction such as Applied Signal Technology, Inc., Blackbird Technologies, SafeNet Government Solutions, Technology Associates, Inc., Teligy, Trusted Computer Systems, and Websense. As CounterTack investigates potential acquisition targets to complement its current offerings and increase the speed of technology development, Cody will be instrumental in helping identify targets and drive this activity.
“I am thrilled to join CounterTack’s Board of Advisors,” stated Michael Cody. “CounterTack’s EDR technology is second to none and, with a successful acquisition strategy in place, the company is poised to lead the endpoint protection market in 2018. I look forward to working with Neal and his team to help grow the company through strategic partnerships and acquisitions.”
Neal Creighton, CEO of CounterTack added, “In 2015, CounterTack acquired ManTech’s leading cyber solutions platform and integrated its technology into CounterTack’s product offerings. In fact, Digital DNA is core to our solution and sets us apart from our competition. Everyone knows the cybersecurity market is ripe for consolidation and bringing Michael onto our Board of Advisors will be key to growing our business through acquisitions. He has the experience and know-how to accelerate our continued success.”
