AaDya Security has changed its name to Judy Security as the company looks to protect small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) against cyber threats, the company announced.

With Judy, SMBs can leverage a virtual cybersecurity assistant designed to protect their endpoints and environments "without the complexity or requirement for multiple products or extensive security teams," the company said. This assistant uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to deliver cyber protection and support to companies that lack the time, expertise and resources to implement these solutions on their own.

Judy's Security Suite Offers Enterprise-Grade Protection

SMBs can access Judy's security suite to guard against fraud, ransomware and other cyber threats, the company said. This suite provides SMBs with the following security capabilities:

  • Automated compliance management and reporting
  • Blue team cloud security information and event management (SIEM) and eXtended detection and response (XDR)
  • DNS filtering
  • Endpoint detection and response (EDR)
  • Password manager
  • Secure authentication
  • Security awareness training

Commenting on how channel partners and SMBs can use his company's security capabilities to protect against potential disruptions, Judy CEO Raffaele Mautone said:

"Cybersecurity protection shouldn't be a pain point for smaller businesses but rather an afterthought, seamlessly running in the background. Judy is the heart of our organization, shielding our partners and customers from everyday attacks, enabling them to work safer, smarter and with reduced costs."

Judy Bolsters Leadership Team, Adds Funding

The rebranding announcement comes after Judy in June 2023 hired Tim Hankins as its senior vice president of Growth. Hankins is responsible for driving Judy's revenue growth and managing sales, customer success and marketing, the company said.

Prior to joining Judy, Hankins served as senior vice president of Sales at DecisionLink, a customer value management platform provider.

Previously, Judy in April 2023 raised $5 million in Series A funding led by venture capital firm Left Lane Capital. Judy is using the funding to expand its sales team and grow its channel partner program, the company noted.

MSSPs, MSPs and other technology providers can join Judy's partner program to use the company's security capabilities to protect their customers' data, the business stated. Judy also provides multiple partnership options.
