The Business Case for Defend Forward

READ MORE

Recently, we introduced an idea that we think summarizes the importance and effectiveness of active defense in cybersecurity: defend forward. Defend forward is a posture that seeks to gain early understanding and warnings of attacker activity, instead of waiting for a breach to happen and then dealing with the consequences. In short, it means stopping cyberattacks before they become reality (you can read more here). Defend forward is the future of enterprise cybersecurity.

Is the CounterCraft Platform Secure?

READ MORE

There are many elements that go into an organization’s security strategy. And the obvious, unstated overriding dictum is, as in medicine, primum non nocere, or ‘first, do no harm’. A security technology must not bring in vulnerabilities along the way, either in the form of direct attack paths or back doors. Here at CounterCraft, security is most definitely the name of our game. And with some of the most prestigious and powerful clients in the world, the first company we seek to make secure is our own.
