Vectra today announced it was named the “Overall Threat Detection Solution of the Year” by CyberSecurity Breakthrough, an independent organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market.

Automatically and in real time, the Cognito platform from Vectra detects hidden cyberattackers who spy, spread and steal inside enterprise networks. Cognito uses AI to perform non-stop, automated threat hunting with always-learning behavioral models to quickly and efficiently find hidden and unknown attackers before they do damage.

“Vectra is a clear innovator in applying AI to hunt down cyberattackers in real time,” said James Johnson, managing director, CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “The company’s Cognito platform empowers enterprises to automatically detect, triage and prioritize threats, enabling security analysts to focus on incident response and deeper investigation.”

The CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards honor excellence and recognize innovation, hard work and success in a range of information security categories. This year’s program attracted more than 3,000 nominations from over 14 different countries throughout the world.

“We are honored to have received the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Award for two years in a row,” said Mike Banic, vice president of marketing at Vectra. “This reaffirms that the Cognito platform continues to be at the forefront of innovation as the ultimate AI-powered cyberattack-detection and threat-hunting platform.”

The Cognito platform from Vectra provides full visibility into cyberattacker behaviors from cloud and data center workloads to user and IoT devices, leaving attackers with nowhere to hide. Cognito Detect and its AI counterpart, Cognito Recall, are the cornerstones of the Cognito platform.
