Flagship Endpoint Threat Detection and Response Technology Now Covered by Six Patents Worldwide

Waltham, MA – June 2, 2014 – CounterTack, a pioneer in delivering real-time endpoint threat detection, context and visibility around targeted attacks, today announced the grant of two new patents for the advanced capabilities incorporated in CounterTack Sentinel, the company’s real-time endpoint threat detection and response platform.

The recently awarded patents cover innovations in the capture and advanced analysis of endpoint behavior. As organizations are demanding faster, more flexible and intuitively built data-centric security products, CounterTack’s Sentinel empowers teams with unprecedented data collection and analysis at-scale, without the performance impact created by most kernel mode and analysis technologies. These innovations contribute to the overall quality of contextual data that Sentinel delivers around attacks, and increase enterprise-wide visibility for security teams to prioritize incident investigation and response. 

The patents granted are as follows:

US Patent #13/163,578: “System Method for Sampling of Forensic Data of Unauthorized Activities Using Executability States”

US Patent #13/163,590: “System and Method for Identifying Unauthorized Activities on a Computer System Using a Data Structure Model”

“Today, no enterprise is safe as the network perimeter has been broken by persistent hackers looking to steal intellectual property from blue-chip companies, the global 1,000 and government agencies,” said Neal Creighton, CEO and president, CounterTack. “Our latest patent award further strengthens CounterTack’s award-winning technology, which enables deeper, more efficient analysis of malicious behavior. By automatically enhancing the quality of Sentinel’s context around attacks and incidents that matter, we are providing real-time, behavioral-based intelligence critical to enabling our customers to quickly detect threats and respond rapidly.”

In 2014, CounterTack is experiencing tremendous growth driven by its enterprise-class endpoint security solution, CounterTack Sentinel. The company has delivered the most scalable enterprise endpoint security platform on the market, and has grown its roster of customers, technology, MSSP's and reseller partners to help meet market demand. CounterTack was recently named to the list of “Cool Vendors” in the Gartner Cool Vendors for Application and Endpoint Security 2014 report. The company also recently expanded its executive management team with new hires, including Jim Bandanza as CRO/Chief Operating Officer and William Aubin as Vice President of Federal Sales.
