In the end, it was clear that CounterTack provided one of the best available technologies to protect our customers against current and future endpoint threats,” said Mike Hrabik, CTO of NTT Security.

ETP has established itself as the only true enterprise endpoint detection, response and prevention solution with a comprehensive suite of features. ETP includes Digital DNA with its one-of-a-kind, patented real-time binary analysis for processes running in memory.

“NTT Security and CounterTack are joining forces to address our customers’ most pressing endpoint security issues with impact and resolve,” said Neal Creighton, CEO of CounterTack. “NTT Security subjected CounterTack to a very sophisticated test regiment that provided clear proof that ETP was able to detect and automatically respond to current threats such as Kovter, WannaCry and NotPetya.”
