16 April 2021 – CALGARY, Canada: RHEA Group, headquartered in Wavre, Belgium, and offering bespoke engineering solutions, system development and security services globally, announced that it has launched its new Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services to its global customer base. Running on Wedge Networks’ Wedge Absolute Real-time Protection™ (WedgeARP™) platform RHEA’s MDR Services will allow customers to experience real-time threat prevention in protecting their networks while supporting their cybersecurity compliance regimes and protecting their employees 24/7 when they are in the corporate environment or working from home.
RHEA is launching three (3) Managed Detection and Response services that will utilize the WedgeARP™ platform. These include MDR 360: A Managed Security Operations Center service, MDR Remote: Managed Detection and Response for Remote Workers, and MDR Net: A Managed Detection and Response Network for Distributed Organizations. All three MDR services are designed to enable RHEA to manage the security of their customers’ networks and workers, freeing up organizations to get back to the focus of running their businesses.

Providing the underlying security, Wedge Networks and its WedgeARP™ platform provides network-based, real-time threat prevention for all types of endpoints in a wide range of networks (mobile data, 5G, SD-WAN, SASE, enterprise and carrier networks, SDN, and smart-city/IIoT). With an embedded deep learning AI engine and patented real-time deep content inspection technology, WedgeARP™ can detect never-before-seen malware in milliseconds. Running on an orchestrated threat management platform, it is an effective and autonomous approach to enable large-scale real-time threat prevention solving the problem of the “Expanding Security Gap”.
WedgeARP™ is the network security and analytics “tool-of-choice” for MDR providers such as RHEA. It enables the management and security orchestration among EDRs and network security functions to detect, block, contain, and auto-remediate threats and breaches. Utilizing multiple signatures and heuristics-based scanning engines, along with an embedded deep-learning neural network for detecting brand-new malware in real-time, is the most effective security platform against ALL threats. The integrated WedgeIQ™ will serve as a linchpin to insightful, actionable security analytics on dashboards and reports for RHEA as they manage their client’s security. Combined with support for all email protocols in all deployment modes, it allows RHEA to include robust email security as part of their offering. With built-in security intelligence for mobile and IoT threat measures, RHEA can offer broader security for a wider range of verticals.
“Wedge Networks is excited that its WedgeARP™ platform was chosen by RHEA to power its new MDR services,” stated Mr. Rob Fong COO & CFO of Wedge Networks. “With RHEA’s vast reach into many of the most respected institutional organizations and firms in the aerospace, security and defense industries around the world, we are pleased to be able to help protect areas where real-time threat prevention is key.”
