ReaQta, provider of advanced cyber security solutions for the autonomous detection and response of cyber threats, has closed a Series-A funding round led by Alpha Intelligence Capital with participation from Fortino Capital, InvestLink and Integra Partners. ReaQta will invest the funding to expand its commercial operations and footprint, particularly across Europe and Asia.
ReaQta's active defence intelligence platform aims to help the increasing number of businesses falling victim to malicious activities from cyber criminals and nation states actors. While traditional protection methods fight known threats and stand vulnerable to sophisticated attack techniques, ReaQta's revolutionary platform stops known and unknown threats in real-time. Through deep learning, the platform constantly improves on defining normal behaviour tailored to each business per endpoint, allowing it to block any abnormal behaviour.
Additionally, traditional solutions require internal or external cybersecurity teams to act on any flagged threats. ReaQta's platform not only detects threats, but also allows for a seamless and automated threat response in real-time. ReaQta was recently named a 2020 Cool Vendor by Gartner in Network and Endpoint Security for this unique approach in tackling cyber threats of all forms.
"We are extremely proud to partner with AIC, a deep-technology AI investor, and InvestLink, cyber-security veterans and founders of Securelink as well as Fortino Capital a B2B SaaS specialist with operating partner. With their support, we aim to accelerate growth and evolve from a promising scale-up to a leader in the cyber security space," says Alberto Pelliccione, Co-Founder and CEO of ReaQta.
"The funding will mainly be used to expand our sales, marketing and support teams internationally. Reaching this milestone has been made possible thanks to our amazing team," he adds.
"The increased interconnectivity of endpoints and data and the rise of malicious activities from threat actors over the last few years has created a substantial threat to business continuity," says Frank Staut, Managing Partner at InvestLink and Co-Founder/CTO at Securelink, a leading enterprise cybersecurity provider in Europe which was acquired by Orange.
"We have analysed this segment for several years and are convinced that ReaQta provides an industry-leading solution. The maturity and reference projects of the company's Autonomous Detection & Response platform, in combination with a stellar team, sets them apart."
Antoine Blondeau, Founder & Managing Partner of AIC, says: "We believe in the disruptive potential of ReaQta's threat-hunting solution. ReaQta is one of the first to combine deep learning with behavioural analytics to perform cyber threat-hunting, with an unparalleled degree of automation. As organizations move to remote work streams, increasing their number of endpoints, ReaQta is well positioned to capture the market's explosive growth."
