The beauty industry retailer faced a recurring challenge of failing red team exercises, highlighting a lack of visibility into cyber threats within its network despite maintaining a lean security budget and overseeing security for numerous stores and online retail operations.
The retailer sought a solution to enhance its network security and chose Vectra's NDR platform over ExtraHop after a successful proof-of-concept test. Vectra Detect, running on the Vectra platform, utilizes AI-derived machine learning to automatically detect, triage, and respond to in-progress attack behaviors, providing quick visibility into hidden threats within the network.
Vectra's solution significantly improved the retailer's security posture by detecting red team activity during the proof-of-concept, outperforming other solutions. Vectra Detect's AI-driven approach reduced the SOC workload, enabling faster response times and proactive threat hunting. The platform consolidated events, correlated data with compromised host devices, and provided security insights, allowing the SOC team to conduct faster and more conclusive incident investigations. The retailer successfully detected and thwarted red-team attacks, impressing executives with Vectra's effectiveness in quick threat detection.
“Vectra clearly outperformed ExtraHop. Vectra detected red team activity during the proof-of-concept. That was the first time we ever detected a threat.”
“With Vectra, what used to take months now takes minutes. There’s no need to sort through massive volumes of logs and chase down every single alert.”
