RocketCyber LLC, a security startup for MSPs just out of stealth mode after two years of development work, has officially launched an integrated app-based suite of solutions for cybersecurity novices.
The Dallas-based company’s solution is built around a selection of “RocketApps” for functions like breach detection and threat intelligence. Users can mix and match apps as they choose, and administer them all centrally through a shared interface.
Engineered for simplicity, the product is designed to help MSPs without specialized security expertise launch a cybersecurity practice swiftly.
“Nobody’s fully into security,” observes Carl Banzhof, RocketCyber’s CEO. “They’re providing some basic anti-virus and some firewalls, but they’re not getting into a full-fledged security offering.” RocketCyber allows them to start collecting cybersecurity revenue without first making significant investments in tools and training.
The system also seeks to simplify management for cybersecurity service providers. “They don’t have the time to go interoperate between 30 different vendors with security tools,” Banzhof says.
There are 14 RocketApps available at present, with another 12 on the way. Some, like the cryptomining detection app, are designed to perform functions not commonly found in security solutions for SMBs. The service also offers a malware analysis app that lets users upload suspicious files or URLs for inspection by security experts.
“There are some unique apps that we’re bringing to the market that don’t exist elsewhere,” Banzhof says.
RocketCyber comes in both free and premium editions. The free version includes apps for breach detection and threat hunting only. The premium edition, which costs $1 per device per month, provides access to the entire RocketApp catalog.
Offering part of the product free is intended to help MSPs “start getting wins” and associated revenue quickly. “As an MSP you could take that and you could roll it in to a customer and do an engagement to do a baseline threat indication,” says Banhof of the free edition.
RocketCyber was co-founded by Banzhof and Billy Austin, the company’s president. Both are veterans of Citadel Security, a vulnerability remediation vendor eventually acquired by McAfee, and iScan Online, a maker of data breach risk solutions ultimately purchased by SolarWinds.
RocketCyber plans to open its platform and management interface to third-party security vendors in the future.
