Endpoint security provider CounterTack recently announced a partnership agreement with South Korean information security services provider SK Infosec to defend Korean workstation and server endpoints from cyber attacks.

SK Infosec has over 3,000 customers in government and public institutions, financial entities and other enterprises in South Korea.

Under the terms of the agreement, the CounterTack Sentinel endpoint protection platform will be leveraged to help defend organizations in South Korea against attacks from North Korea and others.

"We're proud to deliver Sentinel to our partner SK Infosec, and to play a crucial role in defending South Korea and its economy from the aggressive, persistent cyber attacks unfolding on the Korean peninsula," CounterTack CEO Neal Creighton said in a statement. "As innovators in endpoint IT security, we welcome the challenge of stopping targeted, persistent threats to SK Infosec customers who operate their various enterprises amidst the most highly connected and hostile cyber environment in the free world."
