London, U.K., 29 June 2020 – Runecast Solutions Ltd., a leading provider of patented, predictive analytics for VMware and AWS environments, is pleased to announce today that it has been granted a US Patent (No. US 10,621,234 B2) for its Runecast AI Knowledge Automation (RAIKA) technology, which forms the foundation of its flagship Runecast Analyzer solution for data centers.
Optimum resilience, performance, and security of enterprise ICT systems increasingly require automation due to the growing complexity of those systems. Runecast Analyzer uses a disruptive solution to proactively scan ICT systems to identify all known issues that can be prevented within that system. The technology behind Runecast Analyzer, RAIKA, gathers and parses information from publicly available knowledge bases, then uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) and human expertise to translate it to machine-usable data. This data is then used to analyze configuration and logs within the ICT environment.
“We are extremely proud to be granted a US patent for our invention,” said Aylin Sali, CTO and Co-Founder of Runecast. “We have always done our best to enable IT admins of mission-critical systems to clearly 'see the future' in terms of potential issues and be able to proactively remediate them, so this patent for our solution helps validate what we hear daily from our customers – amazement that such a tool exists.”
RAIKA aggregates knowledge, analyzes it, and provides this as automated and proactive guidelines directly to IT administrators – in real-time. In late 2019, Runecast was awarded a €1.9 million EU Horizon 2020 grant to expand the RAIKA capabilities to additional platforms, acknowledging its value to future-focused organizations.
Organizations already using Runecast Analyzer to mitigate service risks and ensure maximum efficiency and security within their data centers include (among many others) Chevron, Erste Bank, Raiffeisen Bank, de Volksbank, Fujisoft, Scania, Avast Software, the NHS, and the German Aerospace Center (DLR).
“Runecast is built by admins, for admins. Our customers talk with us, which also helps us identify new tech trends before they might be common knowledge,” said Mr. Sali. “They inform us of new integrations and complex IT needs in real-time, which helps us to provide them the best possible real-time solutions to their problems.”
In addition to monitoring and reporting on configuration issues, Runecast Analyzer provides automated compliance checks against VMware and AWS security hardening guidelines and common security standards such as CIS, NIST, PCI DSS, DISA STIG, HIPAA, or BSI IT-Grundschutz, with more standards added regularly to its secure on-premises (and even offline) capabilities.
Runecast Solutions Ltd. is headquartered in London, UK, with offices worldwide, and is a leading hybrid-cloud solutions provider of patented, actionable predictive intelligence for VMware and AWS environments. Its award-winning Runecast Analyzer software, regularly lauded by virtualization experts, provides real-time, automated configuration and security compliance analysis for companies of all sizes. IDG Connect named Runecast one of “20 Red-Hot, Pre-IPO Companies to Watch in the 2019 B2B Tech” space, and Runecast was named a Cool Vendor by Gartner in its 2020 Performance Analysis for Cloud-Native Architectures report.
