Detroit-based AaDya Security is partnering with EclecticIQ in the Netherlands, a global provider of cyber threat intelligence, hunting, and response technology and services, to offer the latter’s endpoint detection and response (EDR) technology to customers of AaDya’s all-in-one cybersecurity platform.
Built specifically for small and midsize business customers, AaDya’s platform is the first to offer six pillars of protection in a unified platform.
The solution is powered by Judy, an AI and machine learning agent that works on the back end to ensure each of the pillars (single sign-on, password management, endpoint detection and response, threat detection and automated remediation, anti-phishing, and compliance mapping) work in tandem to provide a seamless experience for both the end-user and platform administrators.
AaDya also launched a successful channel partner program this year to offer its solution to managed IT and security service providers and value-added resellers who recognize the benefits of the unified platform for themselves and their clients.
“Judy was built by our engineers to deliver a full suite of enterprise-grade security tools in one simple, accessible, and affordable platform,” says Raffaele Mautone, founder and CEO of AaDya. “We are thrilled about our partnership with EclecticIQ, which aligns perfectly with our mission to provide small and midsize business customers access to the same security as their larger counterparts at a fraction of the cost.
“Their EDR solution hits all the marks in that it is light enough for our customers to implement and manage without having to compromise on security. Combined with the fact we were able to work with the EclecticIQ team to fully integrate the solution with Judy’s capabilities made our decision to partner with them an easy one.”
Veteran cybersecurity executive and AaDya board member Julie Cullivan says, “AaDya built their solution with the understanding that security should not be a barrier to productivity. The fact that many current security solutions are complicated and cumbersome to deploy has caused many SMB organizations to go unprotected.
“EclecticIQ’s EDR technology was the perfect fit at the perfect time, allowing AaDya to expedite getting their endpoint solution pillar to market at a critical time for many small businesses as they face more cyber-risk and are being forced to meet the latest compliance requirements. I look forward to watching the partnership between these two innovative cybersecurity companies make a significant impact.”
With many recent high-profile attacks and a renewed focus on security at all levels of the nation’s value chain, across all verticals and businesses of all sizes, timing has never been more critical to provide accessible and reliable protection against ubiquitous attacks like ransomware and phishing to a market segment that has traditionally been an afterthought for the big players in cybersecurity,” AaDya says.
EclecticIQ Endpoint Response is a full-featured, flexible, and embeddable EDR solution designed for integration into existing security stacks. It ensures kernel-driven reliability to capture events in real-time on Windows, macOS, and Linux endpoints using the unique endpoint telemetry plugin supported by open source osquery-based agent.
The solution is said to be easily integrated into existing toolsets and workflows via a straightforward REST API, which leverages configuration, notifications, scheduled queries, and ad hoc queries for faster time to detection and response. EclecticIQ says it installs in minutes and is a low-cost, low-footprint multifaceted solution enabling faster mitigation of endpoint attacks.
“When we understood the potential of AaDya’s Judy platform, it became obvious that EclecticIQ’s highly embeddable EDR would make it both more powerful and more extensible for further market-specific innovation,” says Sridhar Jayanthi, senior vice president of endpoint security at EclecticIQ. “The fact that AaDya could significantly accelerate their endpoint goals with EclecticIQ’s proven technology makes this an ideal partnership.”
