Vectra was named a Representative Vendor in the 2019 Gartner Market Guide for Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems.  According to the Market Guide, “IDPS offers the best detection efficacy and performance network security, but firewalls are absorbing IDPS on the perimeter. Security and risk management leaders should seek innovation in advanced analytics, augmenting vulnerability management and internal segmentation from their IDPS solution.”

The report notes that, “The plethora of breaches continues unabated, which highlights how organizations need to better address the protection of internal assets and improve their ability to detect and prevent the lateral movement of threats.” [1]

The report further states that “IDPS vendors are deploying more effectively into public cloud (IaaS) environments than enterprise network firewall solutions as incumbent cloud providers are providing adequate coverage in this space, supplanting traditional firewalls.” [2]

Designed by an award-winning team of data scientists and threat researchers, the Cognito platform represents the rich, security-enriched data output of a holistic approach to security – capturing network metadata at scale, enriching it with machine learning-derived security information and flexibly applying it across Cognito products.
