- Moving away from the traditional cyber security model of blocking known and predictable threats, ReaQta leverages deep learning and dynamic behavioral analysis to map the status quo, identify abnormal behavior and protect against new attack techniques.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands – May 19, 2021 – ReaQta, a leading provider of advanced cyber security solutions for the autonomous detection and response of cyber threats, has closed an over-subscribed 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 defense intelligence platform aims to solve for 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 behavior tailored to each business per endpoint, allowing it to block any abnormal behavior.
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.
