Vectra AI, a threat detection and response company, announced that it has become an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Security Competency Partner.
The competency designation recognises that Vectra has demonstrated deep cloud security expertise and has proven technology that helps customers further enhance their security measures across hybrid architectures and cloud environments.
An AWS Security Competency differentiates Vectra as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that provides specialised threat detection technology designed to help enterprises adopt, develop, and deploy complex security projects on AWS. To receive this designation, APN members must possess deep AWS expertise and deliver solutions seamlessly on AWS. Vectra achieved its AWS Security Competency status through a rigorous qualification process based on references and feedback from its customers.
“Becoming an AWS Security Competency Partner is an exciting milestone for Vectra and for many of our customers who leverage AWS as a critical component in their everyday operations,” said Michael Porat, Vectra SVP, Corporate and Business Development. “Solving threat detection and response challenges for our customers is top priority and this competency further validates our ability to do that in the cloud and wherever organisations choose to configure their environments.”
“We are an AWS shop. Using AWS VPC Traffic Mirroring, Vectra gives us full visibility into our Nitro-based instances,” said Mirza Baig, IT Security Manager at Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC).
The Vectra platform integrates with AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) traffic mirroring to monitor all infrastructure-as-a-service traffic. It also works with AWS Security Hub to publish Vectra detections as findings in the hub, allowing security teams to correlate Vectra attacker detections with other data sources for faster threat hunting and incident investigations.
“Achieving the AWS Security Competency validates Vectra for its technical expertise and ability by enabling customers to further secure their journey through the different stages of cloud adoption—from migration through day-to-day management,” said Dudi Matot, Security Segment Lead at AWS.
