Vectra today announced that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, named the company to its annual Security 100 list for 2018. The list recognizes the coolest security companies in five classifications, and Vectra was one of the coolest vendors in the Network Security category.
According to The Channel Company, the companies on the CRN Security 100 list have demonstrated creativity and innovation in product development as well as a strong commitment to delivering those offerings through a vibrant channel of solution providers.
In addition to recognizing security technology vendors for outstanding products and services, the Security 100 list serves as a valuable guide for solution providers trying to navigate the IT security market. The list aids prospective channel partners in identifying the vendors that can best help them improve or expand their security offerings.
The Cognito platform from Vectra automates the hunt for hidden cyberthreats by continuously analyzing all network traffic and relevant logs to detect attacker behaviors – from cloud and data center workloads to user and IoT devices. In addition to automatically correlating detected threats with host devices that are under attack, Cognito provides unique context about what attackers are doing and prioritizes threats that pose the biggest risk. Using artificial intelligence (AI), Cognito combines data science, machine learning and behavioral analytics to reveal attacker behaviors without signatures or reputation lists.
“Vectra is a 100% channel company, and our inclusion in the CRN 2018 Security 100 list validates our approach to leveraging AI to detect and respond faster to hidden cyberattacks,” said Kevin Moore, Vectra senior vice president of worldwide field operations. “Our partners have helped enterprises choose best-in-class prevention security and will continue to serve as trusted advisors as their investments shift to detection and response solutions. This recognition demonstrates yet again that Vectra and our flagship Cognito platform are transforming cybersecurity at the world’s largest enterprise organizations.”
“The core elements of today’s businesses, both large and small, depend upon robust and reliable cybersecurity solutions,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Unprecedented streams of data, the sweeping transition to cloud computing, vast networks of wireless systems, rapidly growing IoT – all these advances necessitate increasingly complex and adaptive security measures. CRN’s 2018 Security 100 list recognizes top vendors that are meeting this extraordinary demand with the most innovative security technologies on the market, enabling businesses to grow uninterrupted.”
