Vectra, a leader in network threat detection and response, said it is expanding business operations in the Middle East to arm enterprise organizations and managed detection-and-response providers with a platform to stop in-progress cyber attacks in the cloud.
To accommodate its rapidly growing customer base in the region, Vectra is expanding customer success, professional services, sales, and security engineering capabilities along with additional channel partner support.
Fueled by a recent USD 100 million Series E funding round, Vectra's regional headquarters in Dubai will be the company's global go-to-market channel strategy to deliver advanced artificial intelligence (AI) to detect and respond faster to cyber attacks.
The company also operates throughout North America and Europe, and has R&D centers in Dublin, Ireland; Austin, Texas; and Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Powered by AI, the Cognito platform from Vectra enables enterprise organizations to detect cyber attackers in real time and empowers threat hunters to perform conclusive incident investigations. Cognito provides 360-degree visibility into hidden threats in cloud, data center, user and internet of things (IoT) infrastructure.
Vectra recently announced that its Cognito platform integrates with Amazon Web Services Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) traffic mirroring. Enterprises can now natively run the Cognito platform in AWS environments to rapidly detect and respond to cyber threats in the cloud.
In September 2018, the company announced that Cognito can run natively in Microsoft Azure cloud environments with virtual sensors that integrate with the Azure Virtual Network Terminal Access Point (TAP). Both integrations enable Vectra to provide complete cyber attacker detection and response without requiring agents.
