CounterTack Awarded Patent Extension For Next-Generation Endpoint Security In New Global Markets

Patent portfolio extended into Japan and Australia

WALTHAM, Mass. (August 13, 2013) – CounterTack (www.countertack.com), the only endpoint security organization delivering real-time, cyber threat detection and forensics to the enterprise, today announced that it has extended its patent portfolio into Japan and Australia as it continues to expand rapidly into large global markets.

As one of the world's most powerful countries, Japan is under constant attack as motivated, well-funded cyber attackers continuously target its highly sophisticated intellectual property, military intelligence and trade secrets. Similarly, cyber attacks have cost Australia billions of dollars in lost intellectual property and more than one-fifth of large Australian enterprises have admitted to being targeted in the last year alone.

CounterTack's unique, patented approach enables unprecedented and highly scalable data collection and analysis capabilities from deep within organizations' operating systems. Monitoring at a deeper level of the network and system architecture has demonstrated a new level of behavioral analysis that enables the detection of previously undetectable, unauthorized actors -- as well as their specific motives. With this new patent, the company has extended its data collection and analysis intellectual property, developed at the company's research and development center in Santa Monica, Calif., to provide Japanese and Australian enterprises with a new approach to cyber security based on an in-depth understanding of their attackers.

"The extension of our intellectual property into these new global markets is a testament to CounterTack's continued, revolutionary cyber security innovations that provide unparalleled visibility into malicious attacker behavior," said Neal Creighton, CounterTack. "Governments and enterprises around the world are quickly realizing the power, depth and scalability of CounterTack's next-generation endpoint protection platform and its critical role in countering today's most advanced, targeted cyber attacks."
