CounterCraft has signed with Kite Distribution, a cybersecurity focused value-added-distributor (VAD) covering the United Kingdom. Kite Distribution’s focus on ground-breaking and disruptive technology means that CounterCraft’s leading cyber deception technology will be available with expanded offerings in the United Kingdom and Ireland. CounterCraft’s premier product The Platform™ detects threats early, collects personalized, actionable intelligence, and enables organizations to actively defend their valuable data in real time. CounterCraft currently serves governments and Fortune 2000 companies across the globe as the deception technology market continues to explode worldwide.

“We are pleased to work with Kite because of the value they bring to the table thanks to an incredibly knowledgeable team,” said Christian Stanford, VP of Global Channels. “Having Kite Distribution onboard means we can make a bigger impact faster in one of the most important global markets.”

The future of cybersecurity depends on the ability to scale, and cyber deception can be deployed at scale using automated technology. Deception is a “low friction” method to detect threats inside network environments that can also supercharge other detection and response technologies. 

“We are drawn to cutting-edge technologies like CounterCraft at Kite,” said Dave Marshall, Director of Kite. “As anyone in our industry knows, cybersecurity can often feel like a game of catch-up and firefighting against attackers. We have partnered with CounterCraft as they go beyond detection and response.” 

CounterCraft’s deception technology creates fake targets and decoys to mislead and confuse attackers, identifying exploits before they can cause significant harm. The solution will allow Kite’s partners to differentiate their service and offer their customers a compelling extension to their existing EDR, XDR, SIEM, and SOAR solutions. Partners who want to add professional services can also provide their skills and knowledge to help their customers create and deploy highly effective deception campaigns.
