Barclays to stress test ReSecure at its Rise Lab facility

Established in 2012 by military cyber defense experts, ReSec introduced the Content Disarm and Reconstruction platform to overcome the limitations of conventional anti-malware detection and protection methods.

ReSec Technologies, developer of innovative enterprise-grade solutions to prevent malware penetration of networks, endpoints, and data centres, announced its ReSecure platform was selected by Barclays, an international banking and financial services provider, for cybersecurity testing in its Rise innovation lab.

The Rise benchmark will test ReSecure’s ability to prevent both known and unknown malware from entering the Barclays network via email. ReSecure is designed to stop cyber threats emanating from content-based malware and uses ReSec’s patented Content Disarm and Reconstruction technology to deliver threat-free content to end users. This process preserves functionality within the network and provides uninterrupted workflow to users. The ReSecure platform can provide 360-degree prevention for email, web, devices and file transfer content.

“Barclays is a globally trusted brand and we are thrilled to show them the powerful prevention against all threats, which our ReSecure Platform and CDR technology provides,” said Dotan Bar Noy, CEO and Co-founder of ReSec.
