Vectra Networks delivers a new class of advanced persistent threat (APT) defense delivering real-time detection and analysis of active network breaches. Vectra 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, machine learning, 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.

"Info Security Products Guide recognizes products as leaders in their class, and earning three distinctions in this awards program is both an honor and validation of Vectra Networks' differentiated approach to automatically detecting threats and cyber attacks in real time by combining data science, machine learning and behavioral analysis," said Mike Banic, Vectra Networks VP of Marketing. "These awards recognize our unique ability to detect every phase of an active attack; automatically correlate detections over days, weeks or months; and immediately prioritize the most significant threats to an organization."
