Vectra Networks Honored as Cutting Edge and Editor’s Choice winner in Annual Cyber Defense Magazine Infosecurity Awards

March 1, 2016

Vectra Networks, the leader in automated threat management, today announced that Cyber Defense Magazine, the industry's leading electronic information security magazine and media partner of the RSA® Conference 2016, has named Vectra Networks, winner of the “Cutting Edge” and “Editor’s Choice” awards in the Network Security Solution and Intrusion Detection Systems categories.

“We’re thrilled to recognize next-generation innovation in the information security marketplace and that’s why Vectra has earned this award from Cyber Defense Magazine,” said Pierluigi Paganini, editor-in-chief, Cyber Defense Magazine. “Some of the best infosecurity defenses come from forward-thinking players who think outside of the box.”

Vectra uses a patent-pending combination of data science, machine learning, and behavioral analysis to detect malicious behavior in the network. All detections are correlated and prioritized to show an attack in context, and Vectra Networks’ machine learning adapts as attacks evolve.

“These awards recognize the advantage we deliver organizations with real-time detection of in-progress cyber attacks,” said Mike Banic, vice president of marketing at Vectra Networks. “Customers are the most vulnerable during the active phases of an attack and this is where Vectra plays a pivotal role. We address the gap between perimeter and forensic security technologies, and can stop attackers from spying, spreading and stealing within our customer networks.”

Award winners will be recognized this week at the RSA Conference in San Francisco.
