Cyvatar Creates First All-in-One Cybersecurity Membership Platform

Cyvatar

Cyvatar today unveiled its all-in-one platform to deliver the first-of-its-kind cybersecurity-as-a-service (CSaaS) offering. The Cyvatar platform is now the de facto operating system for all of its members’ security programs. Cyvatar’s unique membership model levels the playing field by democratizing cybersecurity and making the best protection accessible and affordable for every size organization, even if they have no cybersecurity expertise in-house. With the introduction of the Cyvatar platform, members also get complete visibility into the management of all their security tools from a single pane of glass. The platform demonstrates immediate and concrete results from their cybersecurity efforts with executive-level analytics, rising compliance and risk grades, time to remediation, and ROI calculations. “We’re losing the battle against hacks and breaches; even though more and more security tools are available, sensitive data isn’t getting better protected,” said Corey White, Cyvatar co-founder and chief executive officer. “We launched Cyvatar as the industry’s first subscription-based CSaaS to solve this problem. Rather than simply identifying issues, the Cyvatar platform gives members complete and continuous transparency into all remediation activity to support their security and compliance goals.” By replacing ownership with membership, Cyvatar members can select the freemium plan in seconds at no cost. They can later choose the packages and pricing that meet their unique business needs and they can cancel anytime--another industry first. “Without Cyvatar, you’re basically going to the supermarket and stocking up on all of the best ingredients without a recipe or general know-how to turn those ingredients into a meal,” said Cyvatar Co-Founder and Chief Product and Strategy Officer Craig Goodwin. “If you want to eat, you can’t just keep buying more ingredients; at some point, you have to combine them in the proper order and prepare them at the right temperature to create the necessary outcome--that’s what we do for our members. Our expert team of Cydekicks use the platform to remediate all vulnerabilities in a member’s system and provide CyValue in 90 days or fewer with full transparency into every action they perform.” Become a free member to get your vulnerability scan, remediation plan, and platform access today. About Cyvatar Cyvatar is committed to cybersecurity for everyone. As the industry’s first subscription-based, cybersecurity-as-a-service (CSaaS) company, it’s our mission to transform the way the security industry builds, sells, and supports cyber solutions. We empower our members to achieve successful outcomes by providing expert advisors, proven technologies, and a strategic process roadmap to guarantee results that map to their business drivers. Our approach is rooted in proprietary ICARM (installation, configuration, assessment, remediation, maintenance) methodology that delivers smarter, measurable security solutions for superior compliance and cyber-attack protection faster and more efficiently, all at a fixed monthly price. And because we’re a subscription, members can cancel anytime. Cyvatar is headquartered in Irvine, California with locations around the world.

Jacqueline Thompson Group

Representing clientele as their trusted agent during the sales and acquisitions of estates within some of the most coveted canyon and coastal enclaves in the OC, Jacqueline Thompson has closed over $1.3 billion in sales. While the COVID-19 pandemic shook many industries to their core, Jacqueline remained steadfast in her service and solution oriented approach with her clients. While there were several months of significant downtime in 2020, Jacqueline still set a record year with $105 million in sales recorded. Upholding only the highest standards, Jacqueline was able to thrive through the effects of the pandemic and is now celebrating her 13 year career anniversary with $24 million in closed sales, $31 million currently in escrow and over $100 million in active listings for 2021 to date. When analyzing the current ultra-luxury market conditions, Jacqueline notes, “We continue to see cash closings especially in properties that are over $10 million. This could be attributed to the strong equities market.” For properties that are priced at $3 million and above, Jacqueline says, “We are seeing more momentum and continued low inventory. With the inability to travel as much, buyers are looking for homes with specific intrinsic values – views, location and privacy.” For properties priced at $2 million and under, Jacqueline shares, “This area of the market is seeing low inventory with properties receiving multiple offers and escalation clauses.” Overall, as city life continues to be less engaging, more and more people are looking to the suburbs. Beginning her career during the Great Recession in a male dominated industry, Jacqueline Thompson set out to break barriers through grit, grace and relentless dedication. As a female and a minority, Jacqueline founded her luxury real estate group in 2008 after moving to the area in 2005.

Her record breaking sales and superb client care have resulted in her being recognized year over year as one of the most successful agents in Coastal Orange County. About Jacqueline Thompson Group: From canyon to coast, REALTOR® Jacqueline Thompson and her namesake team have been serving discerning clientele since 2008.

Founded by PropTech veteran and software engineer Shayan Hamidi, Rechat is built by real estate professionals for real estate professionals. The 360-degree solution was designed to address the challenges Hamidi experienced first-hand when he created and operated a tech-enabled real estate brokerage, and can be used by individual agents or as a one-stop-shop and white-labeled solution for brokerages. “The pandemic has changed the way real estate agents work, and this new easy-to-use platform empowers them to manage their contacts and relationships, market themselves and their listings, and actually close transactions -- all in a single app,” said Rechat’s CEO Hamidi. “Agents simply sign-up and instantly gain access to a fully-integrated platform that was designed with real estate professionals’ needs in mind, enabling them to build their own personal brands from the palm of their hands.” Featuring an integrated MLS system, marketing and social engagement management, sales flow automation and more, Rechat gives users freedom to do what they do best without spending countless hours figuring out the “how.” Rechat empowers agents and brokerages to provide a full suite of services from a single, intuitive mobile app: market listings, connect with other real estate professionals, and elevate their personal brands. “Rechat’s fully integrated digital platform and app have been game changers for us,” says Robbie Briggs, President and CEO of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty in North Texas. “Rechat allows our team to stay connected at every point in the sales process and exceed client expectations, even when we’re not always face-to-face -- for example, during the pandemic. The fact that our agents can customize workflows and build personal brands using these tools has directly translated into increased impressions and traffic, causing a positive network effect that has put us light-years ahead of where we had planned to be by 2021.” At launch, Rechat’s renowned customers include multiple Sotheby’s International Realty affiliates, Douglas Elliman Real Estate and a series of independent brokerages nationwide. The company has raised nearly $6 million and grew its subscriber base by over 900 percent in 2020. In addition, Rechat recently brought on two industry heavyweights, Director of Sales Jay Stifolter, formerly Director of Sales at Realtor.com, and Chief Integration Officer Kevin Smith, a serial entrepreneur with multiple successful exits who was formerly the Acting CIO of Yahoo! and the Vice President of Technology at Broadcast.com. With aggressive growth projected in 2021, Rechat’s advanced platform, combined with its dedication to personalized customer service, allows any brokerage or agent to remain ahead of the industry as it ebbs and flows.
