Strong cybersecurity capabilities are non-negotiable in the business world in 2023. Mustek Limited’s CloudShop understands this, and they’re taking a significant step to beef up South African business cybersecurity by joining forces with IBM Security’s ReaQta Division.
The partnership marks a game-changing move for cybersecurity threat detection and response by offering local businesses another powerful tool with which to protect their digital assets.
IBM’s ReaQta offers cutting-edge endpoint security solutions empowered by artificial intelligence (AI) to detect and manage threats automatically. What sets ReaQta apart is its ability to operate stealthily, keeping threats undetectable to potential adversaries. As cyber threats become more sophisticated, this level of protection is crucial.
The collaboration between Mustek and IBM Security’s ReaQta Division takes Mustek’s cybersecurity capabilities to a whole new level. It introduces an open approach to security, integrating data from various sources to detect and respond to threats more efficiently, wherever they may occur. This unified platform allows for a quick response to security issues across hybrid cloud environments and provides robust protection against advanced threats.
JP Gough, Executive of Cloud, Software, and Solutions at Mustek, highlights the importance of this partnership: “The future of security is open, using technologies that can connect the security insights that are buried across disparate tools and advanced AI to identify and eliminate threats faster than ever before.”
ReaQta, headquartered in Singapore with a primary business office in the Netherlands, brings a wealth of cybersecurity expertise to the table. Its platform employs AI and machine learning, backed by a team of top-tier experts and researchers with extensive backgrounds in security operations. ReaQta’s behavioural-based platform is designed to stop known and unknown threats in real-time, and it can be deployed in various environments, including on-premises, in the cloud, and in air-gapped systems.
One standout feature of ReaQta’s platform is its ‘Nano OS,’ which monitors operating systems from the outside, reducing the risk of interference by bad actors.
Daan Haaker, EMEA Sales Lead at ReaQta, expressed excitement about this partnership: “Joining forces with Mustek will help us expand across South Africa. With this ecosystem that we are building in [the country], Mustek Limited fits perfectly. We are looking forward to seeing our partnership grow and flourish across the region.”
Advanced Threat Detection and Response
As a result of this collaboration, Mustek’s CloudShop has developed a Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Solution that offers 24/7 threat detection and quick response capabilities. This MDR solution leverages advanced threat detection techniques like behavioural analysis, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. It also taps into threat intelligence feeds and security research to stay up-to-date on the latest threats and attack techniques.
By integrating with Mustek’s Security Operations Centre (SOC) partner, this endpoint detection and response (EDR) data can be correlated with other security data sources, providing comprehensive threat intelligence. This integration allows Mustek to identify security infrastructure gaps and recommend improvements.
Mustek’s MDR solution provides round-the-clock monitoring and response, ensuring businesses can swiftly address detected incidents. It offers deep analysis, threat prevention, and the latest threat intelligence to bolster a company’s security posture.
What’s more, Mustek’s resellers have the opportunity to white-label this MDR solution, allowing them to offer it as their own service to customers.
