“It's impressive to see our technology adopted at the speed of relevance by one of the world's top cybersecurity powers.”

According to a press release, CounterCraft has been awarded an Other Transaction (OT) agreement by the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) to enhance cyber threat detection and intelligence-gathering capabilities. The press release appeared on Cision PR Newswire on 25th of Jan this year.

Spain-based CounterCraft is the global leader in deception-powered threat intelligence and active defense technology.

“The contract with DIU went forward in record time,” said David Barroso, co-founder, and CEO of CounterCraft. “It's impressive to see our technology adopted at the speed of relevance by one of the world's top cybersecurity powers.”

To prevent cyberattacks targeting the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), DIU (an organization within the DOD) prototyped the company’s capabilities in the use of deception technology, the press release confirms.

“The capability to elicit high-grade threat intel from cyber attackers is a game-changer,” said Mr. Barroso. “U.S. cyber operators repeated use of the CounterCraft capability provides validation of our vision and security engineering and is a source of great pride for our company. We are expanding our U.S. footprint to support forward-leaning clients looking for the best in security innovation.”

According to the company’s LinkedIn page, CounterCraft empowers organizations to strengthen their security posture more efficiently than ever before. Designed and developed by experts, the CounterCraft Cyber Deception Platform fits seamlessly into existing security strategies and delivers high-end deception for threat hunting and threat detection using controlled, highly credible synthetic environments.
