Vectra and NEC Asia Pacific Announce Strategic Partnership
SINGAPORE., 28 November, 2022 — Vectra AI, the leader in Security AI-driven hybrid cloud threat detection and response, today announced a new strategic partnership with NEC Asia Pacific (NEC APAC), the regional headquarters for NEC Corporation in Southeast Asia.
The new NEC and Vectra partnership provides enhanced security for enterprises across public cloud, identity, SaaS applications, and networks with Security AI that autonomously detects and prioritizes cyber-threats. Armed with investigative context and response controls, organizations are better equipped to see attacks in progress and stop them from becoming breaches. This partnership comes at a time when the Asia Pacific cyber threat environment continues to grow in complexity as sophisticated cyber adversaries continue to advance their attack methods, evading security controls to gain access to corporate networks.
According to industry analyst Forrester’s ‘The State of Enterprise Breaches’ report, organisations in APAC took a median of 33 days to find and eradicate an attack and a median of 11 days to recover from an attack, totalling 44 days. Breaches cost the region a median of $2.2 million in total per breach, the report found.
“The expansion of Vectra’s partnership with NEC is important and timely given the rapidly evolving threat landscape in Asia Pacific. NEC has first-class managed security services, and we are delighted to be able to offer these to our customers,” said David Sajoto, Vice President of APJ for Vectra AI. “By integrating the Vectra platform with NEC’s managed security offering, customers can now have the full visibility of their security measures across hybrid architectures and cloud environments.”
YEO Jack Ming, Vice President of Enterprise Infrastructure Business Unit, NEC Asia Pacific says, ‘the collective strength of the new partnership with Vectra AI will provide enhanced and more secure infrastructure to help customers combat cyberattacks. NEC’s focus is on enhancing our network security solutions for organizations against growing cyber threats. Together with Vectra, our new offering will bring intelligence-driven solutions to organizations by utilising automation to alleviate the stress security teams face today.”
