IBM | November 03, 2021
IBM Security today announced an expansion of its cybersecurity threat detection and response capabilities with its plans to acquire ReaQta. ReaQta's endpoint security solutions are designed to leverage AI to automatically identify and manage threats, while remaining undetectable to adversaries. This move will expand IBM's capabilities in the extended detection and response (XDR) market, aligning with IBM's strategy to deliver security with an open approach that extends across disparate tools, data and hybrid cloud environments.
As part of today's announcement, IBM also detailed a new suite of XDR offerings under the QRadar brand. IBM QRadar XDR helps security analysts break down the silos between the proliferation of point products in the industry – providing comprehensive visibility across security tools and data sources, whether in the cloud or on-premises, and equipping security teams with the insights and automation they need to act quickly. Upon closing, ReaQta's offerings will become part of this portfolio, adding expanded native XDR capabilities to IBM's security portfolio aimed at helping clients adopt continuous monitoring and rapid response as part of a zero trust approach.
Companies today are struggling to secure increasingly dispersed IT environments, with the proliferation of devices, users, and technologies spreading across clouds and on-premises infrastructure. As a result, security events are becoming more difficult and costly to detect and contain, with data breaches costing over $4 million per incident and taking an average of 212 days to identify, according to the 2021 Cost of a Data Breach Report from IBM and Ponemon Institute.
"Complexity has created a cloak that attackers are operating under, furthering their ability to circumvent defenders,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 automatically respond to threats more quickly across their entire infrastructure, from endpoint to cloud. With our expanded capabilities via QRadar XDR and the planned addition of ReaQta, IBM is helping clients get ahead of attackers with the first XDR solution that reduces vendor lock-in via the use of open standards."
Mary O'Brien, General Manager, IBM Security
IBM Announces Intent to Acquire ReaQta
IBM's planned acquisition of ReaQta further differentiates the company's portfolio of connected, open security tools to unify and speed response to security threats. ReaQta, whose primary business office is located in the Netherlands with headquarters in Singapore, will join the IBM Security business unit upon closing. ReaQta was built by an elite group of cybersecurity experts and researchers with AI and machine learning expertise and extensive backgrounds in security operations. Financial terms were not disclosed. The transaction is expected to close later this year, subject to customary closing conditions and required regulatory reviews.
ReaQta's behavioral-based platform helps stop known and unknown threats in real-time and can be deployed in a hybrid model – on premise or in the cloud as well as air gapped environments. Through deep learning done natively on the endpoint the platform constantly improves on defining threat behavior tailored to each business per endpoint, allowing it to block any abnormal behavior. ReaQta's platform also leverages a unique 'Nano OS' that monitors the operating systems from the outside, helping to prevent interference by adversaries.
"Our mission at ReaQta has been to better equip the defenders, who are tirelessly striving to stay ahead of cyber threats, with advanced technology to quickly identify and block new attacks," said Alberto Pelliccione, CEO at ReaQta. "Joining forces with IBM will enable us to enhance and scale our unique AI capabilities across all types of environments via a proven platform for threat detection and response."

Aurora Mobile | February 21, 2022
Aurora Mobile Limited, a prominent mobile developer service provider in China, said that it had formed a relationship with QingCloud Technologies Corp. ("QingCloud"). As a result, the Company will make its verification service ("JVerification") available on the QingCloud Marketplace, a one-stop trading platform for cloud-based apps and services. JVerification will provide encrypted user registration and login, 2-step security verification, and other multi-factor authentication and identity verification services and will be securely integrated into QingCloud's hybrid ecosystem.
"third-party registration and login," "Verification code registration and login," and "account password registration and login" are now the most popular methods for app registration and login. Unfortunately, these procedures are time-consuming since they require users to continually enter one-time verification codes given to their mobile phones or navigate between different interfaces to log in. At the same time, these verification methods are frequently vulnerable to cybersecurity flaws, hacking, and data leaks. As a result, developers must secure apps for both Android and iOS platforms using various verification techniques, resulting in a poor user experience.
JVerification has integrated its gateway certification with China's three major telecom carriers to address this issue, covering up to 99.9% of mobile consumers. JVerification-enabled apps allow users to log in with a single click without inputting their phone numbers, passwords, or verification codes. Instead, users need to complete the registration and login process, which begins with launching the app, selecting registration and login, and then selecting one-click login using their local phone numbers. To enable the one-click registration and login feature in their apps, developers need to incorporate the JVerification SDK.
Furthermore, because the one-click registration and login function is based on local phone numbers, the verification procedure is secured and conducted directly through local telecom carriers. This system reduces the hazards of SMS hijacking and data leaks and ensures user and developer information security.
JVerification has become the top choice of more and more users in the 5G era as an efficient, convenient, and secure one-click verification service. In addition, it continues to allow apps to improve user conversion and traffic value. JVerification will be formally launched on the QingCloud Marketplace due to this partnership and will benefit from QingCloud's solid reputation, powerful ecosystem resources, and extensive operating systems. QingCloud Marketplace, as part of QingCloud's open ecosystem, has collaborated with ecosystem partners to provide customers with a wide range of high-quality vertical apps and has grown to become one of the most critical enterprise platforms for customers in industries such as finance, energy, transportation, education, medical care, and other Internet services.
Aurora Mobile will continue to promote close collaboration with QingCloud in the future, leveraging its technological advantages to extend its product offerings, empowering developers and organizations to undertake high-quality operations, long-term development, and effective monetization. Furthermore, with more proactive partners in China, the company gradually establishes a complete and innovative ecosystem.
