Metaphorically speaking, the threat landscape and the cybersecurity realm are engaged in an intense cat-and-mouse game, with evolving role changes, sophisticated arsenals, and defense mechanisms. To this end, the enterprise arena, unfortunately, has been witness and victim to unprecedented levels of damages. Threat actors are innovative and the past year has seen an increase in the so-called fileless attacks. Also they’re changing strategy and aiming at attacking the supply-chain as it provides a great way to amplify their attacks. All these factors must be taken into consideration while opting new technologies that help organizations to identify attacks and vulnerabilities, and reduce the discovery time. In such a scenario, automation plays a big role as cybersecurity resources become scarcer, and the amount of data for processing grows, making protection and remediation, a herculean task for security teams. In the enterprise security battleground of the black and the white hat armies, ReaQta stands tall with a bright white hat.

It is true that companies often have basic security setup in place: firewalls, IDS/IPS, and antivirus, but they usually lack visibility on the endpoints, and in turn, they lack proper means to run threat hunting and identify anomalous behaviors. To this end, ReaQta, offers the “missing link” by providing full and continuous visibility, top-of-the-line threat hunting capabilities, through an automated system that understands the endpoint’s behavior and identifies anomalies that have a direct security impact. “By moving up in the technology stack we help our customers understand high-level information such as the TTPs (tactics, techniques, and procedures) in order to help them track an attacker and better understand their modus operandi,” mentions Alberto Pelliccione, CEO of ReaQta.

At the core of ReaQta’s AI-based security offering is NanoOS, which is capable of analyzing/monitoring endpoints at an individual (single device) level and a cluster level.

From an integration standpoint, it positions swiftly between the hardware and software of the clients’ infrastructure, which ultimately gives it a bird’s eye view on endpoints for behavioral and threat analysis. The unique positioning also makes it hard for perpetrators to gain access to and shut the system. In terms of scalability, as Pelliccione mentions, ReaQta can scale up to 5000 endpoints in an hour. On the infrastructure visibility front, ReaQta’s intuitive dashboard makes endpoint device scrutiny as easy as using a search engine. The NanoOS stack can instantly hunt and notify infrastructure anomalies, activities, and past and present threats. Depending on the business requirements, security teams can create custom detection, protection, and response scenarios. In effect, the built-in automation and alert capabilities proactively take away the need for human intervention to a great extent.

The success story of one of their clients best exemplifies ReaQta’s value proposition. The customer operated hundreds of large ships equipped with a considerable amount of machines that ran on very limited bandwidth. Many ships had infected endpoints, which turned out to be a profitable exploit for pirates and thieves. “We deployed a special version of our solution capable of working on very low bandwidth channels adding visibility over a plethora of devices across the fleet that would have otherwise gone unmonitored for months,” recalls Pelliccione.

The company’s clients range from financial players to entities that run mission-critical infrastructures—those players who deploy a large number of “tangible” devices. To further grow their market reach and presence while serving companies who can’t afford full-fledged security teams, ReaQta’s has also licensed the sale and servicing of their offering to managed security providers (MSP). Looking ahead, the company plans to accelerate their enablement of MSPs to expand in the European and Asian markets aggressively.

ReaQta named a Cool Vendor by Gartner

Amsterdam, Netherlands - ReaQta, a leading provider of Endpoint Security solutions, today announced it was named Cool Vendor in Network and Endpoint Security report by Gartner, Inc.
The report notes: “Attackers are becoming more sophisticated and targeting organizations, carrying out reconnaissance to identify weaknesses in defenses.” Gartner recommends that security and risk management leaders responsible for infrastructure security should “evaluate the new and innovative uses of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) to detect threats based on learned behavior rather than pretrained models.”
Amidst a rapidly growing EDR market, ReaQta – which has a strong presence in Europe and Asia – stands out with two main differentiators.
The first is ReaQta’s proprietary NanoOS technology which provides deep visibility into the processes and applications running on endpoints. The NanoOS sits at the hypervisor layer and protects the endpoint from outside the operating system, making it invisible to malware and attackers.
The second differentiator is ReaQta’s use of AI and ML in its AI-powered endpoint security platform, ReaQta-Hive. While other EDR and endpoint solutions use ML based on pretrained models and analysis, ReaQta’s initial learning model identifies the normal behaviour of each endpoint, enabling greater accuracy in detections and alerts when there are deviations from the normal.
Unlike most other vendors that require analysts to monitor events and alerts so as to identify and augment results, ReaQta does not require the use of any managed service capabilities for detection.
"I believe ReaQta’s nomination as Gartner's Cool Vendor in Network and Endpoint Security confirms our ability to deliver cutting-edge technology to keep our customers safe from advanced cyber attacks,” said Alberto Pelliccione, CEO of ReaQta.
"We continue to push the boundaries of innovation to stay ahead of the steep increase in attack sophistication. With ReaQta-Hive, we are making the entire process of detection and response completely real-time and automated. Today’s attackers are moving fast, so a new approach is necessary to ensure that the risk of damages and data loss are reduced as much as possible.”
ReaQta-Hive allows its users to detect and block sophisticated, unknown threats ranging from ransomware to fileless and in-memory attacks. The addition of proactive threat hunting capabilities enable the discovery of hidden threats within the infrastructure that go undetected by legacy solutions.
