About CounterCraft

CounterCraft is a software company that goes beyond detection and response to provide proactive cybersecurity solutions and detect attacks faster for the world’s leading organizations. Their premier product, CounterCraft The Platform™, consistently stops red teams, spear phishing, ransomware attacks and insider threats. This distributed deception platform is a global leader in active defense, with tooling that provides real-time intelligence and the capability to manipulate adversary behavior. Their technology stops attackers in pre-breach recon phases, integrates contextualized threat intel with incident response workflows, and saves money and time by helping security teams prioritize their actions. CounterCraft The Platform is used successfully around the globe by Fortune 500 companies and government organizations, including the US Department of Defense.

Product & Function Overview

The PlatformTM is the best-in-breed deception platform, providing active defense and custom intel far beyond traditional detection solutions.

  • Most flexible deployment model of any deception vendor on-prem, cloud, hybrid or air-gapped deployments able to deploy an advanced cyber deception solution in 5 days.
  • Alleviates modern SOC team alert fatigue and triage by sending only high-fidelity alerts. The alerts mean there is verified malicious activity on your attack surface, and you get them in around 20 seconds.
  • 70% of TTPs registered by MITRE are related to defense evasion and memory attacks that bypass EDR / XDR / SIEM. CounterCraft’s DeepSense AgentTM detects 100% of adversary TTPs. Their stealth agent has never been spotted by any attacker and is a must-have extension to EDR, XDR, SIEM and SOAR allowing for proactive threat hunting.
  • The Platform is cloud first and allows for multiple use cases to remediate the most common initial attack vectors.
