Named one of CRN's 10 Coolest Security Startups of 2014, solution providers said CounterTack deserved a mention this year on our list of coolest network security products so far. The company's Sentinel product offers advanced threat detection and response at the endpoint, using behavioral monitoring and analytics to detect an attack. Part of an emerging category of vendors focusing on threat detection at the endpoint, partners praised this tool in particular for its monitoring capabilities as well as its interface. Last year, the company launched a new channel program focused on highly technical partners and MSPs. More recently, the Waltham, Mass.-based company landed $15 million in Series C funding in June to help continue driving its growth trajectory in the market.
