Today NTT DOCOMO Ventures, Inc. (headquartered in Minato-ku, Tokyo, Japan; President & CEO, Toshiki Nakayama), announced it has invested in CounterTack, Inc. (headquartered in Waltham, Massachusetts, US; CEO, Neal Creighton), the leading provider of behavior and memory-based Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) technology for the enterprise.
As global cyber-attacks intensify and attackers become more sophisticated, the threat to enterprises has increased significantly and conventional endpoint security, such as firewalls and antivirus, are not adequate to stop the latest threats. Now more than ever, advanced endpoint detection and response is critical to protecting enterprise data.
CounterTack’s Endpoint Threat Platform (ETP) provides global enterprise security teams with a unique combination of threat context, organizational resiliency and broad visibility, to mitigate endpoint risk and reduce the impact of advanced attacks in real-time. Combining a robust suite of endpoint detection and analysis capabilities by leveraging a single endpoint sensor and an open, scalable multi-tenant infrastructure, CounterTack helps IR and security teams gain rapid insight to quickly neutralize and prevent advanced threats from damaging the business.
CounterTack delivers its next-generation endpoint security solutions to over 250 customers globally, and is highly valued by leading security operators.
NTT DOCOMO Ventures invests in next generation security companies and has chosen to participate in CounterTack’s investment round to support an innovative and leading edge Endpoint Threat Platform.
