INVEST IN RTHREAT TODAY!
The rThreat difference: rThreat enables companies and organizations to stay a step ahead of hackers by providing a solution that allows them to run continuous tests of their cyber security tools and security teams, with real threats, to understand how threats could impact them before hackers do.
Market need: rThreat believes cybersecurity impacts almost all areas of risk in the world today, and we are only as safe as our weakest link, and the overall cyber industry that is projected to reach $43Billion+ by 2026, would seem to agree.** From an rThreat perspective, the need for a platform that emulates the threats currently in use is already proven.
Future Vision: rThreat is continually evolving. We recently launched a new and improved version of rThreat which added support for additional operating systems, faster response times, and additional validation features.

rThreat provides a proactive approach to cybersecurity by running, real-world threat attack emulations, acting as a “live fire” or continuous readiness exercises to test the efficiency and effectiveness of an organization's security architecture & policies.
Our team of researchers monitors the dark web and criminal underground, the ‘internet’ of hackers, to ensure the rThreat platform has the most current examples of malicious risk that may be leveraged against an organization. This helps to secure the organization in real-time through an automated SaaS platform using the Zero Trust security guidelines, now mandated to be followed by the US Federal Government (source).
Cybersecurity is a complex industry. The rapidly evolving threat landscape and the frequency of changes in the IT architecture and in security create a constant stream of new challenges, which are almost impossible to keep on top of.
Although change has always been a constant in both IT and cybersecurity, COVID-19 and the associated rise of remote work have accelerated business digitization and security adaptations. Everything is connected today.
Mandatory bi-annual penetration tests are not enough
Ransomware and cybersecurity breaches are a serious business operation concern. ‘Oh Wow! That's what it really looks like?!’ is one of the responses we have heard from investors when demoing rThreat on their network. Traditional, manual penetration tests which ensure the effectiveness of cyber defenses are expensive, time-consuming, and limited in scope. Mandatory bi-annual Penetration Tests of cybersecurity systems are not enough to ensure that organizations are protected from hackers. Our systems need “to meet or exceed the standards and requirements for cybersecurity,” as President Biden’s executive order noted. Sharing any amount of data on the internet means an increased need to implement a Zero Trust strategy.
rThreat is a cloud-based platform that provides proactive cybersecurity testing with the most current and past ransomware and all types of malicious files so organizations can test their systems in a secure environment. With so many defensive security tools on the market, rThreat wants to proactively ensure that no matter which of those tools an organization chooses, it’s protecting them fully. Our proactive approach follows Ben Franklin’s timeless phrase, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
How it works
The cybersecurity market is projected to reach $366B+ by 2028,
and there are an estimated 4,800 vendors for security defensive tools. rThreat is unique because it tests using real threats, and can validate the impact on over 4,800 defensive tools. Real-world hackers don’t attack with simulated versions of malware. If you’re wearing a bulletproof vest, you’d want to know that it had been tested for actual bullets. We’re applying that theory straight to your security systems.
rThreat has greater return on investment compared to manual security assessments. We have an internal research group that monitors cybersecurity trends and the tactics, techniques, and procedures used by hackers, known as Advanced Persistent Threat groups. The platform is designed for easy use, making it possible for consulting groups to run rapid testing if needed.
After 2 years of executing in stealth, honing our research and development, our patent pending platform is live. We’ve successfully distributed our software through direct customers and channel partners. We recently rolled out version two of rThreat, which features an updated dashboard and support for Linux in addition to Windows operating systems.
We can see that the cyber security industry as a whole is growing at a rapid pace and ongoing testing is quickly becoming a requirement. rThreat uses real threats to test. Ransomware attacks and other hacks are becoming daily headline news items and organizations need a way to stay a step ahead of hackers, rThreat provides this.
- Our product is live with enterprise customers and Manager Security Service Providers using rThreat.
- The Federal Government (Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency) and cybersecurity insurance firms are now requiring organizations to test their systems. rThreat is perfectly placed to take advantage of these new requirements.
- Our highly experienced team of advisors see the value and vision of rThreats approach to security validation.
- We believe we are early movers into security testing space with a unique approach.
How do you know an organization's network is secure? rThreat is a cybersecurity platform that leverages a new approach to proactively allow users to continuously test their cyber security tools, leveraging the same real-world tactics that hackers deploy in current cybersecurity threats - like recent ransomware attacks on schools, hospitals, and suppliers across the globe.* rThreat currently has an in-market product with distribution to direct customers and channel partners.

The rThreat team recently attended ‘Mind the Sec '22’ in São Paulo, Brazil. It was a great event and highlights that cybersecurity is a global problem. It’s always helpful to hear from our customers and partners that real attack emulations provide a realistic perspective on their cyber security. Lots more to come in the rapidly expanding Brazilian market.
rThreat is revolutionizing the field of Breach & Attack Emulation. What does it mean? Validating your security controls in real-time, holistically, and realistically, to rapidly expose exploitable attack paths and gaps in your defenses.
Oh, we already do pentests, you say? Good for you. Are you running them continuously, at the push of a button, fully automated, without fielding a red or purple team of expensive experts? Are you able to reduce the time to discover these exploitable control deficiencies to minutes instead or hours and days, or worse yet, having to wait for a breach to realize where the hidden gaps had been the entire time?
There is a better way, and rThreat is delivering it today as a consumable service.
And now, you can become a part of the Breach & Attack Emulation revolution by supporting rThreat's mission as an investor through their open crowdfunding campaign on StartEngine.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
