Vectra Networks to Demonstrate Real-Time Detection of In-Progress Cyber Attacks at Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit Next Week

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 2, 2015) - Vectra Networks today announced that it will provide a live demonstration of its differentiated solution that delivers real-time detection of cyber attacks in-progress at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit next week. The Vectra solution uniquely extends automated real-time cybersecurity into all corners of an organization's network -- from the campus, to remote sites and internal network segments.

The demonstration will be held in Vectra Network's Booth 255 at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit, June 8-11 at the Gaylord National Resort & Conference Center in National Harbor, Md.

Vectra is sponsoring a customer Solution Provider Session during which Under Armour will discuss the implementation of behavior-based advanced threat defense on June 10 at 9:30 am EDT in the conference center's Maryland 1 ballroom.

In addition, Vectra Networks CTO Oliver Tavakoli will participate in the panel session "Discussion of Network Forensics Challenges and Provider Solutions." The panel will be held on June 10 at 5 pm EDT in room Maryland B and will be moderated by Lawrence Pingree, Gartner Research Director.

"The Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit is the premier IT event to gain insights into emerging threats and security best practices," said Mike Banic, vice president of marketing at Vectra Networks. "It's the perfect venue to demonstrate how Vectra uses data science to proactively identify all phases of an active attack so loss can be prevented or mitigated."

Vectra delivers a new class of advanced persistent threat (APT) defense delivering real-time detection and analysis of active network breaches. Its technology picks up where perimeter security leaves off by providing deep, continuous analysis of both internal and Internet-bound network traffic to automatically detect all phases of a breach as attackers attempt to spy, spread, and steal within a network. Vectra uses a patent-pending combination of data science and behavioral analysis to detect malicious behavior in the network. All detections are correlated and prioritized to show an attack in context, so security analysts can address the highest business risks quickly, rather than spending valuable time sifting through thousands of alerts.
