SAN JOSE, Calif., March 16, 2021 — Vectra AI, a leader in network detection and response (NDR), today announced it has successfully completed its Service Organization Control (SOC 2) Type 2 certification for its Cognito Detect and Cognito Recall cloud and enterprise software, a milestone for the company and the NDR industry. With SOC 2 compliance, business leaders should be confident that their information will be secure and confidential in Cognito Detect and Cognito Recall.
Today, NDR is a foundational element of securing critical data in networks and the cloud. While organizations have traditionally been able to protect data through on-premises servers, this approach is no longer effective. With more new devices accessing enterprise and cloud networks, traditional solutions have become susceptible to greater risk activity and abuse of data. Ensuring that the security systems protecting this data meet the highest standards has become paramount for organizations of all sizes.
Serving as the industry standard for testing an organization’s security controls, the SOC 2 certification is intended to provide customers with the assurance that a company’s internal security policies, procedures, standards, and guidelines have been formally evaluated by an independent auditing firm. A Type 2 designation includes detailed testing of the design and operating effectiveness of a company’s controls over a period of time, which help instill trust and confidence that its systems and data in scope are secured appropriately.
“The rapid move to online collaboration and productivity tools over the past year has drastically increased the volume of sensitive data being shared across multiple services,” said Chris Long, Director of IT Security at Vectra. “In today’s security landscape, we’ve seen how threats like supply chain breaches or ransomware attacks can have far-reaching consequences. Achieving SOC 2 compliance builds on our commitment to protecting our customers’ and partners’ data.”
Cognito Detect unearths attackers who have circumvented preventative security solutions in cloud and on-premises networks before they can access data and cause damage. Meanwhile, Cognito Recall allows organizations to have a 360-degree view of historical metadata to search for threats, investigate incidents, and determine common threads between compromised host devices, accounts, and assets.
