CounterTack Partners With HP To Enhance Visibility Into In-Progress Cyber Attacks

Event Horizon achieves HP ArcSight Common Event Format Certification

WALTHAM, Mass. (April 25, 2012) – CounterTack, the industry’s first and only provider of in-progress cyber attack intelligence and response solutions, today announced that it has partnered with HP and received the HP ArcSight Common Event Format (CEF) certification for its Event Horizon solution. This certification affirms the interoperability of Event Horizon with the HP ArcSight Security Intelligence and Risk Management (SIRM) platform.

With this partnership, intelligence derived from the Event Horizon solution, including file, process and network level activity, can be integrated with an organization’s existing HP ArcSight deployment to further reduce false positives and enhance correlation capabilities between the products.

“Event Horizon uses virtual machine introspection to provide unparalleled visibility into in-progress cyber attacks,” said John Worrall, executive vice president of product management and marketing at CounterTack. “Providing this real-time attack information enhances security event correlation, reduces false positives and provides joint customers with enhanced security operations response capabilities.”

“Trusted interoperability and immediate remediation are critical for customers looking to combat evolving cyber threats head-on,” said Buck Watia, director, Business Development, Enterprise Security, HP. “This interoperability will leverage virtual machine introspection to provide valuable in-progress attack intelligence capabilities for HP ArcSight customers.”

CounterTack’s interoperability with the HP ArcSight correlation engine will add valuable, real-time forensic details, such as the timestamp of the attack, information on the process initiating outbound connection to the remote host, and information on the process modifying files and the process modifying Registry Key values.

Event Horizon utilizes the hypervisor to perform analysis of operating system (OS) level functions that attempt to manipulate file, process and network behavior. This unique execution of applied virtualization enables Event Horizon users to monitor host-based activity without being detected. Machine speed capture of data from the memory of a virtual machine creates rich, actionable intelligence, which includes file, process and network level activity.

About CounterTack

CounterTack, the industry’s first and only in-progress attack intelligence and response solution was born out of the critical need for enterprise and government organizations to approach security in a completely different way – combating advanced persistent threats with a new line of defense. Each year, more than $32 billion is spent worldwide on security technologies, yet motivated cyber attackers are still finding ways to penetrate the most sophisticated, layered defenses. CounterTack solves this problem by offering the fastest detection and deepest attack intelligence available, enabling customers to actively engage with the attacker and take control over the impact of the attack – even while it’s happening.

Founded as NeuralIQ, the company re-launched as CounterTack in 2011, building upon the vision and innovation of NeuralIQ. Based in Waltham, Mass., the privately held company is backed by Fairhaven Capital and a group of private investors.
