Vectra was presented with the 2018 Visionary Innovation Leadership Award for internet-of-things (IoT) cybersecurity by the growth partnership firm of Frost & Sullivan. The award was presented to Vectra as result of independent research and in-depth analysis by Frost & Sullivan.
“Our research shows that the Cognito platform from Vectra is highly differentiated in its application of machine learning and AI to deliver the broadest range of use-cases and real-world efficiencies in cybersecurity,” said Vikrant Gandhi, industry director at Frost & Sullivan. “Vectra raises the bar in AI-driven threat detection and we expect the company to maintain growth on the strength of its cutting-edge Cognito platform.”
“We are incredibly proud of this recognition by Frost & Sullivan for our innovations in cybersecurity,” said Mike Banic, vice president of marketing at Vectra. “We remain firmly committed to maintaining our market leadership position through continued innovations that address the emerging needs of enterprise organizations worldwide.”
The rapid growth of IoT devices has created an enormous attack surface that cybercriminals can exploit in enterprise organizations. Unfortunately, most IoT devices are inherently vulnerable because they do not support endpoint security.
The Cognito platform from Vectra provides full visibility into cyberattacker behaviors – from IoT and user devices to cloud and data center workloads – leaving attackers with nowhere to hide. Cognito uses AI to perform non-stop, automated threat detection with always-learning behavioral models to quickly and efficiently find hidden and unknown attackers before they do damage.
Cognito Detect and its AI counterpart, Cognito Recall, are the cornerstones of the Cognito platform. Cognito Detect automates the real-time detection of hidden attackers while giving Cognito Recall a logical starting point to perform AI-assisted threat hunting and conduct conclusive incident investigations.
