"The certification has created an easy way for customers to validate our solution's capabilities. End users can be assured that RAV Endpoint Protection secures endpoints with a high degree of confidence."
Kobi Kalif, CEO of ReasonLabs
ReasonLabs is the first Next-Generation Antivirus (NGAV) software with Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) capabilities built specifically for home users. Whereas traditional antiviruses use a one-to-one detection technology to fight breaches and malware, ReasonLabs's intuitive engine utilizes a variety of technologies and techniques to predict and prevent virus attacks. By leveraging machine learning algorithms and AI, RAV Endpoint Protection sorts through millions of files to easily identify potentially hazardous ones and ensures proactive detection and resolution of the most complex malware.
"From OPSWAT's inception, we have pioneered the concept of zero trust," said Benny Czarny, founder and CEO of OPSWAT. "The OPSWAT Access Control Certification Program extends this idea to IT System Administrators by relieving them from the daunting task of researching, testing and identifying the right endpoint anti-malware and encryption solutions by having us test it for them. We've done the work and verified applications that meet our exacting zero trust standards."
Since RAV Endpoint Protection utilizes state-of-the-art EDR technology powered by artificial intelligence, ReasonLabs is able to provide the strongest defense for customers' personal assets. By utilizing an EDR approach, RAV is able to detect threats virtually anywhere, in contrast to systems built with a legacy one-to-one detection method. When coupled with its other security products including RAV VPN, RAV Safer Web, RAV Online Security, and FamilyKeeper, users can feel confident knowing every single endpoint is secured.
"We developed the OPSWAT Access Control Certification Program to recognize the very best security solutions in the market, and ReasonLabs' RAV Endpoint Protection solution has met these demanding requirements," said Hamid Karimi, VP Technology Alliances and OEM at OPSWAT. "Gold certification is a badge of trust that certifies that a vendor's solutions do what they say they do and are effective against the latest emerging threats. IT professionals who are looking for the most effective antivirus solutions rely on Gold Certified vendors, and now they should consider ReasonLabs' RAV Endpoint Protection."
ReasonLabs is a cybersecurity pioneer equipping tens of millions of families and individuals worldwide with the same level of cyber protection enjoyed by Fortune 500 companies. Its AI-powered, next-generation antivirus engine scans billions of files around the world to predict and prevent cyberattacks in real-time, 24/7. Its flagship product, RAV Endpoint Protection, together with its other products combine to form a multilayered solution that safeguards home users against next-generation threats.

Netskope | August 03, 2022
Netskope, the leader in Security Service Edge (SSE) and Zero Trust, today announced it has acquired Infiot, a pioneer in enabling secure, reliable access with zero trust security, network and application optimization, and AI-driven operations.
As Netskope Borderless WAN, the addition of Infiot's revolutionary technology will enable Netskope customers to apply uniform security and quality of experience (QoE) policies to the widest range of hybrid work needs, from employees at home or on-the-go, to branch offices, ad-hoc point-of-sale systems, and multi-cloud environments. For customers, all of these capabilities are delivered in a single architecture, using one policy framework, and one console, which dramatically simplifies operations, preserves network performance, and ensures SASE success.
The Benefits of SASE
Businesses and governments are rapidly adopting SASE to safeguard data wherever it moves, support digital transformation efforts, and realize better efficiency and return-on-investment from their technology. Netskope is a widely acknowledged leader in SSE, which describes the security services needed for a successful SASE architecture.
Relevant to SASE growth, Gartner® notes:
"By 2024, 80% of SD-WAN deployments will incorporate SSE requirements, up from less than 25% in 2022"
"By 2025, 80% of enterprises will adopt a strategy to unify web, cloud services, and private application access from a single vendor's SSE platform"
Despite SASE's popularity, however, confusing vendor messaging often accompanies piecemeal product sets that are spuriously marketed as "SASE." Most of these products are not natively integrated, nor able to simplify technology environments, and lack critical network and infrastructure transformation capabilities—all of which risk higher levels of security incidents, network downtime, and poor ROI.
Netskope Borderless WAN combines with Netskope Intelligent SSE in a fully converged SASE platform, uniquely addressing these challenges.
Borderless WAN Unlocks Full SASE Potential
Founded in 2018 by veterans of the SD-WAN market, Infiot was one of only four vendors recognized in the 2021 Gartner "Cool Vendors™ in Cloud Networking" report, was twice named to The Futuriom Top 40, and has been successfully deployed by customers in healthcare, retail, education, energy, manufacturing, telecommunications, and other industries.
Infiot technology leverages a cloud-based, zero-touch deployment and provisioning model with multiple physical and virtual appliance form factors. The solution includes built-in routing, a transport-agnostic approach that supports both wired and wireless networking, app-aware QoE enforcement combined with policy-based traffic steering, and other integrated network security functions critical for deployment at the edge. For customers, all of this capability is delivered in a single architecture, using one policy framework, and one console, which dramatically simplifies operations for thinly-stretched networking and infrastructure teams.
As the foundation of the new Netskope Borderless WAN solution, Infiot technology will allow customers to embrace modern, cloud-first networking by leveraging Netskope SASE Gateways, creating secure, optimized connections between any enterprise location, including site-to-site, or the cloud. Netskope SASE Gateways also enable end-to-end optimization for improved app performance, provide increased network resilience through real-time link monitoring and dynamic path selection, and offer identity and per-app access policies to apply zero trust principles to the network.
Netskope Borderless WAN critical use cases include:
Easy access to industry-leading Netskope Intelligent SSE services powered by world-class Netskope NewEdge infrastructure
All-in-one intelligent access, routing, wireless WAN, network security, app assurance, and edge compute as an effective way to modernize, simplify and implement SASE architecture
The ability to offload MPLS and eliminate costs by sending more traffic direct-to-net, eliminate backhauling and leverage fixed/mobile connectivity options (such as 4G/5G)
Better guaranteed WAN connectivity to ensure end-to-end performance, from the "last mile" to the cloud or legacy data center
Simplified operational overhead associated with running custom third-party applications
"Today, leaders across IT, security, and networking and the world's best-known analyst firms agree that the explosion of data and devices, along with the numerous ways that people connect, communicate, and collaborate, make the transformation of both networking and security a critical imperative for businesses and governments. It is in this transformation where Netskope is uniquely positioned to help customers with a fully converged SASE platform. "We're very excited to introduce Borderless WAN, and to welcome Infiot to our growing team."
Sanjay Beri, Netskope CEO
"Today, many-to-many secure optimized connectivity is required to address any user, device, and location, in combination with a zero trust approach that integrates seamlessly with Security Service Edge," said Parag Thakore, Infiot CEO. "Netskope Intelligent SSE is the industry's leading SSE, and the combination of Infiot and Netskope will deliver on the promise of SASE like no other technology vendor can."
"As we continue to transform our patient care experience, we are excited to partner with Netskope,'' said Rick Lacy, Senior Enterprise Network Engineer, CHRISTUS Health. "Netskope Borderless WAN provides adaptive, identity-aware precision access for our medical workers to deliver care from the comfort of their homes, without compromising experience, all at a significantly lower cost to our business. In the future we see many applications for Netskope, including our medical IoT deployments."
"Netskope Borderless WAN is a new mindset. It's a new way of thinking about how our users access our domain and critical applications," said Robert Boopsingh, CIO, The Beacon Insurance Company. "For us, it will replace VPN for our employees and branch offices across our seven countries. We have implemented a zero trust model while delivering superior network access with this modern, secure, cloud-first implementation."
"This is a great move," said Frank Dickson, Group Vice President, Security & Trust, IDC. "What Netskope will now be able to offer, thanks to its compelling security platform and Infiot's technology, is fully secure hybrid-work in-a-box, solving for both networking challenges and security challenges at the same time. It's a self-provisioning network, with security that's automatic. That's not just an abstract framework or a good idea, it's a specific set of benefits and use cases for businesses."
In addition to offering Borderless WAN capabilities, Netskope integrates with key SD-WAN partners, ensuring customers benefit from Netskope Intelligent SSE in mixed environments while maintaining flexibility and choice in vendor partners.
Financial terms of the acquisition are undisclosed. Parag Thakore and the Infiot product team now comprise Netskope's Borderless WAN group, and Infiot's sales team has joined Netskope's sales organization.
