CounterTack Partners With South Korean Providers For APT Defense

CounterTack's endpoint protection platform, Sentinel, will play a critical role in countering the ongoing cyberattacks that threaten organizations in South Korea

WALTHAM, MA - (August 21, 2013) - CounterTack (www.CounterTack.com), the only endpoint security organization delivering real-time, cyber threat detection and forensics to the enterprise, today announced a worldwide partnership agreement with SK Infosec, a multi-million dollar South Korean information security services provider, and wholly owned subsidiary of SK C&C, to counter targeted, persistent cyber attacks on workstation and server endpoints in Korea.

SK Infosec, the leading information security company in South Korea, has received 2013 Frost & Sullivan Korea Excellence Awards for Managed Security Services. The company has more than 3,000 customers in Korean government and public institutions, financial entities, and various other enterprises in South Korea. Based on these core capabilities, SK Infosec will exclusively distribute CounterTack Sentinel to potential customers throughout South Korea.

Under the agreement, CounterTack's revolutionary endpoint protection platform, Sentinel, will play a critical role in countering the ongoing cyber attacks that threaten organizations in South Korea as a result of ongoing challenges from North Korea, as well as other threats from outside Korea.

As the most extensively networked nation in the world, cyber threats to South Korea often spread faster than in any other country. CounterTack Sentinel will be a key component in protecting the nation's businesses. Both CounterTack and SK Infosec will share information about global cyber threats to promptly counter known and unknown cyber challenges.

"We're proud to deliver Sentinel to our partner SK Infosec, and to play a crucial role in defending South Korea and its economy from the aggressive, persistent cyber attacks unfolding on the Korean peninsula," said Neal Creighton, CEO, CounterTack. "As innovators in endpoint IT security, we welcome the challenge of stopping targeted, persistent threats to SK Infosec customers who operate their various enterprises amidst the most highly connected and hostile cyber environment in the free world. We look forward to a long-term relationship that will foster growth between the two organizations and deliver enormous value to SK Infosec customers across South Korea."

SK Infosec is uniquely positioned to distribute CounterTack technology to customers who need the real-time threat detection and continuous visibility capabilities offered only by Sentinel, allowing customers to defend against attacks that move swiftly and laterally through enterprise systems.

"CounterTack's dramatically different approach to cyber security represents the type of innovation that we look for in a trusted security partner," said Myeong-Hoon Yoon, Director, SK Infosec. "CounterTack is the only company that provides the scalability necessary to rapidly detect and analyze precision threats on each endpoint across our customers' sophisticated enterprise environments."
