Vectra Networks Recognized by CRN as a 2015 Emerging Vendor

Vectra Earns Spot on Select List Featuring Coolest Tech Startups Heating up the IT Channel for Equipping Partners With Differentiated Automated Threat Detection Offering

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 22, 2015) - Vectra Networks, the leader in real-time detection of in-progress cyber-attacks, today announced it has been named to The Channel Company's exclusive 2015 CRN® Emerging Vendors List. The annual list features up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to offer high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers.

Vectra delivers a new class of advanced persistent threat (APT) defense delivering real-time detection and analysis of active network breaches for the channel. 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 a 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.

"Solution providers continue to keep their finger on the pulse of emerging technology in order to stay ahead of customer needs," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "The exciting technology vendors recognized in this year's Emerging Vendors List don't disappoint -- the innovative technologies they bring to the table provide channel partners with product options that will propel their success into the future."

"CRN is the leading news source for solution providers and the IT channel, and we are honored to receive this recognition again," said Rick Geehan, Vectra Networks vice president of North America sales. "Nearly every proof-of-concept trial we do for prospective customers turns up indicators of an in-progress cyber attack that evaded existing perimeter security. This makes the Vectra solution immediately necessary, and our partners and their customers are the major benefactors."

Companies included in CRN's 2015 Emerging Vendors list were founded in 2009 or later and are actively working with channel partners in North America. The list, along with information about each vendor, will be published in CRN's August 2015 issue and will be available online at www.crn.com.
