The project is a solution to cybersecurity of the new generation, demonstrating a completely new approach to the most important solutions for system recovery and stability. An innovative and advanced solution that provides reliable protection.
Risks and disadvantages
The project has an excellent theoretical part, but a practical part is far from satisfactory. It is very difficult to predict how this decision will work in the real situation, how reliable it will be and will it be able to protect the whole system from the attack of cybercriminals.
The project has very good prospects, but only in case of the launch of several test samples, and if their solution really copes with the task of protection and recovery, only then it will be possible to talk about the serial launch of the project and about possible success in the long period.
Why R3sec? How does the technology work?
R3Sec is a high-tech start-up presenting new cyber security solution with a moving target defense concept. R3Sec stands for Restoration, Resilience and Recovery. The technology will allow for a paradigm shift in the way we fight cyber security threats. Our mission at R3Sec is to provide a paradigm shift in how we fight cyber security threats. We thereby endow systems with more resilient qualities, giving them the capability of fast recovery from any issues that might cause applications and systems security break and downtime.
How is this done? Our Moving Target Defense (MTD) technology places systems, such as servers, applications, services, APIs, IoT services and appliances (“Systems”) into several identical holographic/virtual instances. These are then put into a constant state of virtual rotation where some are active and some are inactive. Every minute, the active instance (such as a website or server) is replaced with a clean instance (of that website or server) while the initial instance is inactivated, wiped and reset into clean state by our self-cleansing technology. So due to the constant rotation of instances, the system becomes highly resilient against potential security breaches and downtime (ie. DDoS attacks, website defacement, nuke attacks, wrong patching, etc) as damaged or troubled Systems are constantly being replaced with a functioning instance. In addition, inactive instances can be scanned for abnormal changes to more easily detect potential or attempted breaches.
What are the planned developments after the ICO? What is the roadmap?
Every six months following the token issue end date, we will provide a semi-annual report to token holders that will summarize the performance of R3Sec’s product development. This report will be prepared by the R3Sec management team, reviewed by R3Sec independent auditors and published to r3sec.com. In addition R3Sec will provide regular updates though blog postings on our activities at events and conferences, as well as articles on the topic of cybersecurity in relation to our product, services and potential customers.
The core focus during the first 6 months after ending the token sale will be to develop and finish our first solution. But we will already intensify our sales, marketing and business development activities in Q1 of 2018.
In the development phase, all costs will be fully paid by R3Sec. In the production phase, product and service sales, are intended to provide for additional revenue. This revenue will be reinvested back into further product development of R3Sec.
As consumers become aware of R3Sec products and services through our marketing campaigns, network effects through direct sales and partnership should increase demand and result in further revenue growth from product and app sales. Our marketing efforts will focus on expanding the R3Sec brand and increasing revenue from our offerings.
Our Timeline consists of the following core milestones. This might have to be adapted for business purposes:
Static Sites Ready:
Until Q3 we developed our MVP and tests were already done. It serves as a demonstration but we are still working on scalability over cloud hosting providers.
After the ICO, first customers will be onboarded doing thorough testing of automation and scalability.
This solution is then serviceable to sites like Wordpress, WIX, Drupal and Joomla sites (HTML driven sites).
We already have deep conversations with wordpress hosters who are ready to implement our service as soon as we can provide it.
Since we really want to do thorough testing before launch this release will most likely take place from the start of Q2 in 2018
Initial launch of MTD decentralized hosting solutions:
The first rollout will target a group of select partners (such Storj, FileCoin, MaidSafe, etc.).
It will involve a small test group but quickly roll out to their broader customer group
At the end of 2018 Q4 we will then be onboarding additional potential customers whom we have accrued from our already existing network within the next 12 months. Many of these have already pursued business with one of our earlier ventures in one way or the other.
Initial Launch of R3S MTD for dynamic sites + containers:
First rollout will target a group of select partners (such as Shopify, Magento, Shopware etc.).
It will involve a small test group but quickly roll out to their broader customer group.
At the end of 2019 Q2 we will then be onboarding additional potential customers whom we have accrued from our already existing network within the next 12 months. Many of these have already pursued business with one of our earlier ventures in one way or the other.
First beta Launch of R3 IoT MTD Solution & ICS MTD Solution to select projects:
In early Q2 2019 we will make first testing with select innovative customers.
Some potential partners have been mentioned in earlier chapters.
While we have already designed initial technical architecture we need to fine tune the solution together with our first select partners before offering our service to a broader set of IoT partners in the beginning of Q3 2019
What is the purpose of the R3S Token Sale? Why a token sale (aka ICO) and not traditional fundraising?
With this ICO, we would like to offer the opportunity to pre-purchase our innovative service in the forms of a R3S Token Offering. The reward for contributors to our utility token during the ICO, and even more those that join our preICO sale, lies in heavy discounts/premiums over purchasing the product once it is officially released in the market. Contributors will receive the right to use our service based on the amount of tokens the purchasers buy during the ICO.
Due to your preSale interest we can speed up the time to market by a 10-fold. Rather than waiting many additional years, people, small and large businesses, homes, industry and especially new decentralized cloud solution providers can very soon minimise their risks and costs of fighting cyber threats through our paradigm shifting technology.
A token sale is like a kickstarter built on blockchain, that lets you seek global support in an extremely rapid time frame. We are sure that people will want to join our mission all over the world.
The R3S Token has strong token utility functionalities, which can be utilised as soon as possible after the token distribution. The R3S Token will not entitle the holders to dividend or profit of any kind, control or imply ownership.
How to buy and get R3S Token?
Here is the guide of how to buy R3S token:
-calculate how much R3S tokens do you want to buy;
-Copy or QR scan the displayed address;
- Make the payment: Send your cryptocurrency from any wallet you like (also exchange wallet is accepted);
- Upon transaction confirmation, you will see credited R3S's in your token balance.
We only accept Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Litecoin and Corion payments. The price of 1 R3S token during the (pre)ICO = 1 USD
Once your payment arrived, the eligible amount of R3S Tokens will be added to your balance, and the transaction to the history as well. Payment will be credited based those confirmation numbers:
Please note: During the ICO non of the R3S tokens will be transferred to the users. The distribution takes time 2-4 weeks after the ICO.
To get your purchased R3S Tokens, you have to set up your ETH address, where you will receive your Tokens after the ICO. If you don't have ETH address here is a simple way to create one and set up the R3S token on it.
The easiest way to create an Ethereum (ETH) address for you is MyEtherWallet. https://www.myetherwallet.com/

What is the purpose, the advantages, how and where can I use R3S Token?
R3Sec is offering a new token named R3S. It is an opportunity to experience the next paradigm shift within cyber security protection.
The idea of R3Sec Moving Target Defense Solution has been inspired by +10yrs of proven technology and a team of +20 years within the cybersecurity industry. With its powerful technology R&D and experienced team and advisors, R3Sec is in a very strong position to become a leading provider of MTD solutions for the larger masses within decentralized and centralized cloud, but also for small and larger businesses.
Due to the breakneck pace of the cybersecurity space, the ever growing costs of cyber attacks, R3Sec wants to deliver this (re)volutionary service to the market much faster than traditional methods. A token sale is like a kickstarter built on blockchain, that lets you seek global support in an extremely rapid time frame.
The R3S token is not a security. R3S is a utility (service) token, more like store credit, to buy our services (similar to amazon store credit). Since R3Sec is offering a solution to most pressing security issues, we are convinced that most of the web hosting and data storage companies will want to join our mission all over the world very soon. It has strong token utility functionalities, which can be utilised as soon as possible after the token distribution. The R3S Token will not entitle the holders to dividend or profit of any kind, control or imply ownership.
R3S Token acts like a coupon that grants access to R3sec Products & Services. In the future, participants can purchase R3Sec Products & Services via Fiat, Crypto, and R3S Tokens (and eventually other listed assets). R3S Token holders may receive other coupon benefits such as preferred access or discounts on future products or services.
Token holders will have these benefits:
Priority over non-token holders in traditional cloud hosted environments.
2 USD worth of service for non -token holder equals 1 USD (1R3S) for token holders.
Being part of the ecosystem - earning tokens by validating transactions (threat intelligence and security breach reports).
To summarize, R3S Tokens act as:
a store of value that can be used to purchase goods and services;
a coupon enabling wallet participants to receive higher levels of benefits;
a coupon for preferred access to products or services on r3sec.com when used in the wallet.
The R3S Token is an ETH based token, an ERC20 token, you can find the github link here: https://github.com/r3sec/tokens
The purchasers of our utility token will receive during the pre-ICO 30%, during our ICO 5+5% bonus of our services.
During the ICO none of the Tokens will be transferred, your balance is actually your reservation. 2-4 weeks after the ICO and if you properly set your ETH address, your R3S tokens will be sent to you.
After the R3S token sale, purchasers of the R3S token will be among the first that can utilise our service - according to our development timeline (ie. in about 4 to 6 months; you can read more in our other article: "What are the planned developments after the ICO? What is the roadmap?").
Alternatively you can sell your utility tokens to other customers that have a higher demand for our services.
How will be R3S token created? Can I mine it? What happens to the not sold tokens?
R3S Tokens are standard ERC20 Tokens. We used the OpenZeppelin token template, customized a bit and deployed on the ETH blockchain.
You can check our github link: https://github.com/r3sec/tokens

Before the ICO a total of 47 880 000 R3S tokens were granted whereas 39.900.000 are made available during the ICO itself. These 39.900.00 R3S tokens are our HardCap (HC). Once the HC reached, or the ICO time is up, no more R3S will be sold. The unsold tokens will be burned after the ICO.
During the ICO non of the Tokens will be transferred, your balance is actually your reservation. 2 to 4 weeks after the ICO and if you properly set your ETH address, your R3S tokens will be sent to you.
