Founded in 2011, Boston-based CounterTack’s technology helps companies reduce the impact of endpoint-focused attacks through real-time, behavioral-based attacker intelligence.

According to the company, the additional investment will help it continue to scale its business to meet customer and partner demand in the Federal sector, as well as expand in the commercial sector.

CounterTack Sentinel’s Management Console gives security teams real-time information and analytics to help detect and analyze malicious endpoint behavior and give security teams can the ability to respond intelligently to attacks and correlate behaviors across the enterprise.

“We’ve succeeded in delivering a truly enterprise-class product to our growing list of customers and partners, and we continue to be oversubscribed in interest from the investment community,” said Neal Creighton, president and CEO, CounterTack.

According to Creighton, the company is competing head to head with FireEye-owned Mandiant in the endpoint threat detection and response market.

The company first kicked off its Series B funding round in October 2013 with $12 million.
