Bitdefender Deepens Customer Protection with RedSocks Acquisition

Bitdefender, a cybersecurity protector of more than 500 million systems in over 150 countries, has acquired behavior and network security analytics company, RedSocks.

Netherlands-based RedSocks specializes in automated detection of suspicious network behavior and combating cybercrime. By combining Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Cyber Threat Intelligence, RedSocks provides non-intrusive, real-time breach detection solutions and incident response services for its customers.

The company serves an important market need resulting from the high-profile breaches that existing, in-place network security tools have failed to prevent.

“At Bitdefender, we’re now able to offer our Bitdefender and new RedSocks customers even stronger protection from sophisticated attacks. By bringing RedSocks network security analytics and threat intelligence into GravityZone, a complete endpoint prevention, detection and response platform, customers will benefit from a more comprehensive, layered approach to security and deeper visibility into their threat landscape” explains Bitdefender CEO and Founder Florin Talpes.

Pepijn Janssen, who founded RedSocks, added, “When we started RedSocks in 2012, our goal was to build solutions that would serve any type of organization and offer them value for the long term. Together with Bitdefender, we will now achieve that goal. We are extremely proud to be acknowledged by and part of a visionary, cybersecurity company like Bitdefender.”

RedSocks’ analytics capabilities, combined with Bitdefender’s GravityZone, a cloud-based security solution aimed at cash-strapped IT teams, will create a deeper awareness of potential threats, according to the company. Contact us today to learn more!
