CounterTack Joins IBM Security App Exchange Community

WALTHAM, MA --- CounterTack, provider of behaviorally-based endpoint detection and response (EDR) technology for the enterprise, launches its CounterTack Sentinel App for QRadar, which leverages and integrates with IBM QRadar Security Intelligence to achieve better endpoint visibility. The CounterTack Sentinel App for QRadar delivers EDR capabilities to security teams helping correlate robust endpoint data with any log source to intelligently respond to threats.

QRadar users have flexibility with the Sentinel App to view high-level summary information or detailed behavioral data through multiple dashboards on a single QRadar console, and can easily pivot directly to the Sentinel console. With the CounterTack Sentinel App for QRadar, IBM and CounterTack customers can leverage behaviorally-based detection, analysis and threat prevention capabilities to counter external attacks that infiltrate systems, or for malicious insider-based attacks.

Key benefits include:

• A reduction in incident response time. Security analysts can cut the time-to-result with greater precision in detection and analysis, using endpoint behavioral data, correlated with QRadar intelligence.
• Ease of use. Users can enact endpoint quarantine with a single click from within the QRadar interface, and can easily download Sentinel sensors (agents) and deploy within minutes.

The CounterTack Sentinel App for QRadar leverages IBM QRadar, the company’s security intelligence platform which analyzes data across an organization’s IT infrastructure in real-time to identify potential security threats. Leveraging QRadar’s new open application programming interfaces (API), the CounterTack Sentinel App for QRadar shortens incident response cycles and will deliver unprecedented endpoint threat context to correlate with QRadar source data.

The new application is freely available to the security community through IBM Security App Exchange, a marketplace where developers across the industry can share applications based on IBM Security technologies. As threats are evolving faster than ever, collaborative development amongst the security community will help organizations adapt quickly and speed innovation in the fight against cybercrime.
