ReaQta named a Cool Vendor by Gartner

By Enterprise Security Magazine | Tuesday, November 17, 2020

Amsterdam, Netherlands - ReaQta, a leading provider of Endpoint Security solutions, today announced it was named Cool Vendor in Network and Endpoint Security 1 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.
