F-Secure Countercept earns multi-year contract from global logistics and engineering firm
Award-winning managed detection and response solution’s threat hunting capabilities continue to attract interest.
Helsinki, Finland – February 12, 2020: Cyber security provider F-Secure’s award-winning Countercept solution has won a significant, multi-year contract from an internationally recognized logistics and engineering firm based in Belgium. F-Secure Countercept was selected to respond to challenges posed by the evolving threat landscape due to its broad set of detection and response capabilities, in addition to proven threat hunting and incident response expertise.
Logistics service providers occupy important positions in global supply chains, making them tempting targets for attackers. In addition to common types of cyber crime, attackers can compromise these companies in order to disrupt the flow of commodities/goods/services to certain parties or regions. That makes the security of these logistics firms critical for the companies, as well as anyone relying on their services.
According to F-Secure Executive Vice President of Detection and Response Tim Orchard, more organizations, particularly those in highly-targeted industries, are beginning to recognize the value of proactively improving their defenses to counter advanced threats.
“I’m happy to see organizations such as our new Belgian client recognize the business value in proactively developing their security capabilities. The recent epidemic of targeted ransomware continues to highlight that advanced threat actors are no longer just looking to steal data. Attacks that cause widespread business disruption have real value to these adversaries, and solutions like F-Secure Countercept are built to detect and combat these advanced threats,” says Orchard.
F-Secure Countercept is a fully-managed service that helps organizations hunt down threats and detect attacks within minutes. It provides advanced threat intelligence, expertise, and threat hunting capabilities, giving businesses world-class cyber defense capabilities to combat modern targeted attacks as they unfold.
