PALO ALTO, Calif., May 26, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cloudera,the leader in enterprise analytic data management powered byApache Hadoop™, today announced that CounterTack has selectedCloudera to build out its enterprise data hub to help protectorganizations from cyber criminals, specifically those that attemptto stage attacks on unsuspecting users on corporate endpointsacross enterprise networks.
CounterTack's Sentinel is an enterprise-class, big data endpointdetection and response platform (EDR). Cloudera Enterprise gives itthe ability to support enterprise deployments of over 100,000endpoints, while effectively analyzing system-level informationacross distributed, heterogeneous computing environments withreal-time processing in minutes versus up to 240 days--the currentindustry standard for how long attackers typically dwell inenterprise systems undetected before an effective response can beexecuted.
CounterTack analyzes information collected from devicesincluding workstations, laptops, servers and mobile devicesthroughout an enterprise to identify patterns or anomalies thatmight be associated with malicious behavior. As the number ofdevices touching and connecting to a corporate network grows,fueled in large part by the Internet of Things (IoT), the abilityto monitor and protect corporate assets from new or previouslyunseen security threats becomes even more imperative. Toeffectively counter new threats, companies must be able to detect,analyze, and respond to malicious code injection, purpose-builtmalware and non-malware behaviors that may be associated withunsuspecting users' devices at the network endpoint.
"As the volume and sophistication of endpoint attacks areexpanding exponentially it is critical for organizations toimplement a secure endpoint threat detection and response platformthat is combined with reliable advanced analytics," said EddieGarcia, chief security architect, Cloudera. "By integrating withCloudera Enterprise, CounterTack's platform is taking advantage ofcrucial, high-performance, real-time analysis in demandingenterprise environments while also gleaning important insights tohelp protect its customers from malicious attacks. We are thrilledthat CounterTack chose Cloudera as its trusted partner."
