Massachusetts-based CounterTack leverages big data analytics from Cloudera to protect organizations from cybercriminals that attempt to gain access by staging attacks on unsuspecting users on corporate endpoints across enterprise networks. These endpoints can include workstations, laptops, smartphones, tablets and even specialized equipment such as retail point of sale (POS) terminals. CounterTack was recently recognized by Gartner in the Gartner Cool Vendors for Application and Endpoint Security 2014 report.
Cyber-attacks are skyrocketing. The US Government alone is the target of tens of millions of attacks every day, and the average cost of a commercial data breach now runs into many millions of dollars. Each desktop, laptop, and smartphone connected to a network can give hackers easy access to sensitive information. The stakes have never been higher, but staying one step ahead of the criminals is becoming tougher and tougher.
Learn how Massachusetts-based CounterTack uses Cloudera Enterprise to process enormous amounts of information to pinpoint threats. Since outgrowing its original MySQL database, the company now uses big data to slash the time to find malicious code; reducing it from an industry average of almost 300 days down to a matter of a few minutes.
The inherent capabilities of the Cloudera Enterprise ecosystem provide us with the unique ability to innovate and scale with speed and efficiency.
