Vectra Networks Earns Computer Technology Review MVP Award for Protecting Networks from Threats, Malware and Cyber Attacks
Vectra Networks, the leader in real-time detection of cyber attacks in-progress, today announced that Computer Technology Review (CTR) has named the recently announced Vectra S-series sensor as a 2015 Most Valuable Products Award winner for keeping company data safe, while protecting networks from threats, malware and cyber attacks. The complete list of 2015 CTR Award winners can be found at http://wwpi.com/mvp-award-winners/.
According to CTR, “Vectra is the first to extend real-time cybersecurity to remote sites and internal segments to automate detection of all phases of an attack anywhere in an organization. Combining sensors with Vectra’s X-series platform allows customers to automatically see indicators of a cyber attack anywhere in the network without incremental investment in system analyst resources. Cybersecurity defenses typically look for attacks only at the organization’s Internet boundary and main sites. However, today’s breaches prove that remote sites are the weak links in an organization’s attack surface that attackers exploit to gain access, then spread laterally to internal network segments that contain key assets they steal or destroy.”
Vectra Networks detects attacks at every phase of an ongoing attack, regardless of how the attack enters an organization’s network and the application, operating system or device involved. The Vectra X-series platform continuously monitors an organization’s network and provides automated, intuitive and prioritized reporting so security analysts can address the highest business risks quickly, rather than spending valuable time sifting through thousands of alerts.
“We are honored to receive CTR’s highest recognition in the Security Awards Category for the Vectra S-series sensor,” said Mike Banic, Vectra Networks VP of Marketing. “The S-series sensor extends automated real-time security into all corners of an organization. It is ideal for remote sites that may be a weak link in the attack surface and for internal segments that contain key assets that attackers want to steal or destroy.”
Founded in 1981, CTR is one of the most respected editorial authorities in the computer storage, networking and information technology industries. CTR was the first storage publication to have a Web presence and the CTR Web site currently is one of the largest sites devoted to data storage and data management.
