Prevention does not provide the security coverage you require
Traditional approaches have major flaws.
The top 3 major flaws of traditional security approaches according to a Gartner Research note*
Lack of security training
It is assumed that widely-known threat vectors are covered by defense technologies that are often left in monitoring mode after unintended business disruption, due to false positives or misconfigurations.
Dwell time is an astounding 49-150 days (depending on industry) according to the 2020 Verizon DBIR.
Reuse old security approaches to secure new ways of conducting business.
68% of the time, security environments were not able to prevent or detect the approaches being tested.

Lack of the right tools
Spend disproportionate amounts of resources and budgets trying to block a threat that cannot be blocked.
Data exfiltration techniques and tactics were successful 67% of time.

Cognito Detect provides threat detection coverage from the cloud to user and IoT devices
With Cognito, attackers have nowhere to hide
See threat behaviors for unknown and known attacks by tracking internal reconnaissance and lateral movement.
Identify which host devices, workloads and user accounts that are at the center of an attack.
Expose stealthy low-and-slow attacks. The Cognito platform never rests and enables security teams to use their time wisely.
Automate a related chain of events into a single attack campaign to understand the scope and meaning, and prioritize threats based on risk and privilege.
Triage the highest-risk threat detections automatically and mitigate attacks that pose the greatest risk to your organization – all in real time.
Investigate behavior-based threat signals, not volumes of anomalies. Security context is instantly available for conclusive answers about threat behaviors.
Respond with accurate and high-confidence signals and eliminate the noise that causes false positives.
Enforce signals from threat behaviors based on user identity and host device – intelligently at the source.
Add value to existing investments by sharing enforcement data from Cognito with third-party security solutions.
Understanding and detecting account and privilege misuse is vital to detect attacks.
“We’ve been a customer of Vectra for four years now. We’ve grown with the product and believe behavior detection is something we need to augment the signature detections that we have in place .”
“With Cognito, I can focus on the highest-risk threats. With other solutions, I have to filter to get rid of hundreds or thousands of false positives.”
“Vectra saved the A&M System $7 million in a year and we cut threat investigation times from several days to a few minutes.”
“What makes Vectra stand out is its ability to understand attack behaviors. To put it simply, Vectra’s advanced AI and machine learning understand that Live Nation clients don’t buy tickets. Only fans buy tickets.”
“We used to have tens of thousands of events. With Vectra, I only have to deal with 10 or 12 critical events that I can investigate further.”
“Vectra is passionate about putting the customer first.”
“Vectra makes threat hunting more efficient. With Cognito, we can monitor and detect threats as quickly as possible.”
“With Cognito we can stop threats before they cause damage.”
“With Cognito, we can see if an exploit kit is being downloaded and if it was laterally distributed in the network. We have visibility into behaviors across the full lifecycle of an attack beyond the internet gateway.”
“Cognito filled a gap. We needed to know what we didn’t know, and Cognito showed us what was hidden.”
