About Countercept

Countercept is a complete managed service for detection of and response to advanced persistent threats (APT) and cyber-attacks, delivered from our operations centre for 24/7 real-time monitoring of our clients’ assets. Traditional approaches to malware prevention and protection against being hacked, such as anti-virus scanning, are no longer effective these days, so we’ve built a business around staying at the forefront of the cyber arms race. We have an exceptional track record of picking up everything from script kiddies to nation state attackers.

One of the coolest things about being a part of Countercept is working with true leaders in the field of cyber security. We are pioneering ‘Threat Hunting’ within the industry, a new approach that is fundamentally the only way to be truly effective at stopping hackers in the modern world. While we embrace buzz-words like machine learning and use these techniques as part of our solution, our competitors’ complete reliance on such approaches only serves to prove that they don’t truly get it. As a company we regularly perform red-team (attack) exercises against companies using such defences and it’s shocking how ineffective they can be.

The development team that builds the Countercept platform is dedicated to creating industry-leading software to uncover the most advanced cyber-attacks, by combining multiple data sources, novel analytical approaches along with the Threat Hunting practice and mindset. Our systems deal with the acquisition, processing, cross-referencing and presentation of very large data sets in a high performance, low-latency and scalable manner. This is your opportunity to work with the brightest minds in the industry and contribute to something that is changing the landscape of cyber security.
