Brief Overview

With the increasing frequency and skill that modern attackers exhibit, prevention is proving to be less and less effective. Modern, comprehensive threat detection and response initiatives are now mandatory in today’s vulnerable and ever-changing cloud, data center, IoT, and enterprise environments.

Vectra AI is the leading provider of threat detection and response – from cloud and data center workloads to user and IoT devices. Its AI-driven threat detection and response platform Cognito enables enterprises to automatically detect and respond to hidden cyberattack behaviors and conduct fast, conclusive incident investigations that prevent in-progress threats from becoming data breaches.

Vectra’s approach to threat detection blends the human expertise of security researchers with a broad set of data science and advanced machine learning techniques to proactively hunt down cyberattackers and reduce business risk by detecting attacker behaviors as opposed to security anomalies. Vectra provides organizations with high-fidelity alerts instead of more noise and does NOT require data decryption so organizations can be secure and maintain privacy.

Vectra offers four applications on the Cognito platform to address high-priority use cases. Cognito Stream™ sends security-enriched metadata to data lakes and SIEMs. Cognito Recall™ is a cloud-based application to store and investigate threats in enriched metadata. Cognito Detect™ uses AI to reveal and prioritize hidden and unknown attackers at speed. And Cognito Detect for Office 365 and Azure AD™ finds and stops attacks in enterprise SaaS applications and the Microsoft 365 ecosystem.
