Founded by a team of cybersecurity experts and machine learning researchers, ReaQta is on a mission to help businesses seamlessly detect and respond to cyber threats, including ransomware and sophisticated in-memory attacks. “Users are exposed to attacks more than ever with the changing nature of threats. Also, the growth of remote work culture during the Covid-19 has further made it far easier for cyber criminals to cause significant harm,” mentions Alberto Pelliccione, CEO of ReaQta. “There is a need to increase the defense against these modern unknown threats and make users aware of these attacks on both corporate and individual levels.”
To this end, ReaQta’s full-fledged endpoint detection and response (EDR) and endpoint protection platform (EPP), ReaQta-Hive, promises a feasible way forward – all on a single agent. It provides visibility at the endpoints as well as the infrastructural level to identify new patterns of attack and suspicious activities. Powered by AI, ReaQta-Hive is effective against both malware (ransomware, RAT, trojans, etc.) and non-malware (in-memory, file-less) attacks. The company recently added ReaQta-EON and ReaQta-MDR to expand its solution portfolio and better support its clients.
As a cloud-delivered next-generation antivirus with an advanced behavioral component for ransomware and threats, ReaQta-EON analyzes file behavior and stops malicious activities or processes. Simply put, the solution offers complete protection unlike traditional legacy antivirus solutions. ReaQta-EON delivers centralized management of security and behavioral type of response, without the hassle of managing complex EDR or EPP solutions.
With its managed detection and response services, ReaQta-MDR ensures 24/7 proactive threat monitoring, incident response, and remediation in real-time. Due to a lack of expertise and time in managing an EPP or EDR, IT teams often struggle to regularly dedicate resources to threat detection. ReaQta-MDR’s services relieve companies from the struggle of constantly monitoring systems and help them focus on their daily business by taking care of security round-the-clock
We will continue to enhance our algorithm-driven automation approach to reduce the human element from the security process and allow organizations to focus on their business growth
With such robust offerings, ReaQta has successfully served many global businesses over the years. For example, a large European retailer with several outlets—that was struggling due to continuous data theft—could not understand the target pattern nor remediate their systems as their IT team lacked endpoint security experience. ReaQta’s SOC team analyzed their infrastructure and created a remediation plan within three hours. The company was able to implement this response plan to completely eliminate all unwanted threats. The retailer valued ReaQta’s efforts in cleaning up and future-proofing their infrastructure overnight as part of ReaQta-MDR’s 24/7 services.
In another instance, one of ReaQta’s clients was facing a system breach, and their security team was unable to remediate the attack and restore normal operations. With limited visibility into the complicated hybrid infrastructure, they were unable to detect the source of the cyber breach and the presence of ongoing and past attacker activity. The client needed to assess the severity of the violation and required a remediation and response plan with continuous protection. Utilizing ReaQta-Hive, they could detect, track and remediate the threat within a matter of minutes. The solution provided them with advanced capabilities at speed, without the need for any complex database query knowledge.
ReaQta is continuously automating the threat detection and response process through an algorithm-driven approach. The company also participates in MITRE’s evaluations —a nonprofit organization that certifies and assesses the endpoint security platforms—to test their solution against high-profile attacks. Continually setting its footprint across European and Asian markets, ReaQta now plans to expand into the U.S. market. ReaQta is focused on developing new technologies to advance its managed security services by helping clients manage their security without the need for a huge and highly-skilled security team. “We will continue to enhance our algorithm-driven automation approach to reduce the human element from the security process and allow organizations to focus on their business growth,” concludes Pelliccione.
