Amid unprecedented crisis, cybersecurity leader reaches out to concerned companies
San Jose, California, February 28, 2022, 8:00 AM EST - Vectra AI, a leader in AI-driven threat detection and response for hybrid and multi-cloud enterprises, today responded to the expanding Ukraine-Russia conflict by offering a slate of free cybersecurity tools and services to organizations who believe they may be targeted as a result of this conflict.
Bank websites and ATMs, as well as military computer networks, have been disabled in recent days by cyberattacks, and disinformation campaigns meant to provoke panic have rippled across cellular networks.
“Escalating cyber conflict will lead to unanticipated consequences,” said Hitesh Sheth, President and CEO, Vectra AI. “No public or private organization is assured of remaining a mere spectator.”
The company is actively tracking new attack indicators associated with the conflict in Ukraine and Russia, as well as other conflicts around the world.
For immediate assistance in the current emergency, Vectra AI will offer the following services on a complimentary basis:
Attacks previously attributed to Russian actors are known to disrupt the Microsoft Enterprise Cloud and gain access to critical information. With the acquisition of Siriux, Vectra AI is uniquely equipped to immediately discover malicious Microsoft Azure Active Directory activity that could lead to the compromise of Exchange Online mailboxes. Vectra AI also will provide a free Siriux scan to organizations that believe they could be targeted.
“As the conflict escalates and cyber risks mount, Vectra AI wants to be part of the solution,” said Sheth. “We believe that together we can significantly reduce the risks associated with nation-state cyber-attacks. By offering our products and services without charge during this crisis, we hope we can help more organizations protect themselves.”
