SAN JOSE, Calif., June 9, 2020 — Vectra AI, a leader in network threat detection and response (NDR), today announced deep product integration with Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) and Microsoft Azure Sentinel to elevate Vectra’s unique NDR detections to the Microsoft security platform in the Security Operations Center (SOC) enabling more capability to prevent attackers from establishing footholds across enterprise networks. Vectra has also been invited to become a member of The Microsoft Intelligent Security Association, an ecosystem of independent software vendors purpose-built to defend against increasing cyber threats. A model of modern security operations, the SOC visibility triad, anchored by Vectra’s NDR platform, provides organizations with full visibility into the threats that face their network from cloud to ground.
Traditional SOC processes involving disparate notification tools force analysts to battle massive amounts of inbound alerts, where missed signals are common, and prioritization of alerts is sparse. Since inception, Vectra has been committed to amplifying the efficiency of existing teams by combining data science and security research to detect and triage attacker behaviors. With Vectra’s open platform and rich technology ecosystem, security operations teams experience reduced workload, deeper context, and faster, more accurate response by leveraging tools they already know and prefer.
Jitin Dhanani, SeniorDirector, Business Development, Vectra, adds, “Through this collaboration with Microsoft, our customers will see immediate results without the workload that comes with embedded security silos. Ultimately, this combined effort will result in well-coordinated responses, enhancing the efficiency of their security operations, and reducing the attacker dwell times that drive risk for the business.”

This announcement comes on the heels of an exceptional year of growth for Vectra. In 2019 alone, the company raised $100 million in funding, integrated Vectra with Microsoft Office 365, added two executives to their senior leadership team, expanded business operations in the Middle East and Asia-Pacific regions, disclosed several significant new attack surfaces to the market, and earned numerous industry accolades from top tier analyst and award programs.
