Vectra Networks, the leading innovator in real-time detection of in-progress cyberattacks, today launched the X-series platform. The Vectra platform is a “security platform that thinks,” providing continuous real-time detection at every phase of a cyberattack. The X-series platform automatically delivers prioritized actionable reports, enabling organisation to effectively prioritize resources to stop attacks or mitigate loss.
“Enterprises are overly dependent on blocking and prevention mechanisms that are decreasingly effective against advanced attacks,” according to Gartner in its February 12, 2014 report, Designing an Adaptive Security Architecture for protection from advanced attacks. The report also states: “Information security doesn’t have the continuous visibility it needs to detect advanced attacks.”
Delivering a new class of advanced persistent threat detection
The Vectra X-series platform can detect attacks at every phase of a persistent attack, regardless of how the attack enters an organisation’s network and the operating system, application or device being attacked. Combining security research, data science and machine learning, the X-series platform continuously monitors an organisation’s network and can detect an attack amidst the surrounding network chatter. The Vectra X-series monitors traffic between users and both Internet services and applications in the data centre to detect attacks across a company’s entire attack surface. The Vectra platform provides automated, intuitive and prioritized reporting so security analysts can address the highest business risks quickly, rather than spending valuable time sifting through thousands of alerts.
