Threat detection and response company Vectra AI has announced it has become an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Security Competency Partner.
According to Vectra, the announcement further confirms its technical expertise and proven customer success in further protecting AWS environments.
Vectra specializes in cyber threat detection and response for hybrid and multi-cloud enterprises. The Vectra platform uses AI to quickly detect threats across public cloud, identity, SaaS applications, and data centers. Vectra optimizes AI to detect attacker methods — the TTPs that are at the heart of all attacks — rather than simplistically warning of “else.” The resulting high-fidelity threat signal and clear context enable cybersecurity teams to respond to threats faster and stop ongoing attacks faster.
Organizations around the world rely on Vectra for their cybersecurity resilience in the face of dangerous cyberthreats and to prevent ransomware, supply chain compromise, identity takeovers and other cyberattacks from impacting their business.
The competency designation recognizes that Vectra has demonstrated deep cloud security expertise and has proven technology that helps customers further enhance their security measures in hybrid architectures and cloud environments.
An Amazon Web Services security competency distinguishes Vectra as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that provides specialized threat detection technology designed to help businesses adopt, develop, and deploy complex security projects on Amazon Web Services. To receive this designation, APN members must have deep AWS expertise and seamlessly deliver solutions on Amazon Web Services. Vectra has achieved its AWS security competency status through a rigorous qualification process based on references and feedback from its customers.
“Becoming an AWS Security Competency Partner is an exciting milestone for Vectra and for many of our customers who use Amazon Web Services as a critical part of their day-to-day operations,” said Michael Porat, senior vice president, corporate and business development at Vectra.
“Solving threat detection and response challenges for our customers is a top priority and this competency further validates our ability to do that in the cloud and wherever organizations choose to configure their environments,” he says.
“We are an AWS store. By leveraging AWS VPC Traffic Mirroring, Vectra gives us complete visibility into our Nitro-based instances,” added Mirza Baig, IT Security Manager at Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC).
The Vectra platform integrates with AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) traffic mirroring to monitor all infrastructure-as-a-service traffic. It also partners with AWS Security Hub to publish Vectra detections as findings in the hub, allowing security teams to correlate Vectra attacker detections with other data sources for faster threat hunting and incident investigation.
“Acquiring the AWS security competency validates Vectra for its technical expertise and capability by enabling customers to further secure their journey through the various stages of cloud adoption — from migration to day-to-day management,” said Dudi Matot, chief security segment at Amazon Web Services. .
