Securing AWS for the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) posed the challenge of ensuring visibility in a cloud environment, preventing lateral movement, and detecting abnormalities without compromising the organization's information, data, and domains.
MPAC tackled the challenge by implementing Vectra, an AI-driven network detection and response solution, to enhance visibility, particularly in identifying and preventing lateral movement within the organization. Vectra's capabilities allowed MPAC's Security Operations Center (SOC) to automate threat prioritization, triage high-risk threats, and conduct efficient investigations based on behavior-based threat signals.
Vectra not only addressed the blind spots in lateral movement but also empowered MPAC's SOC to automate threat response, prioritize threats effectively, and conduct investigations with ease. The solution's compatibility with AWS, coupled with features like Traffic Mirroring, ensured full visibility into cloud instances, making it an integral part of MPAC's security strategy. The team's satisfaction with Vectra's performance highlights its effectiveness in providing visibility, preventing threats, and simplifying security investigations.
“The blind side that we had before Vectra was the lateral movement within the organization. We didn’t have good visibility,”
“The blind side that we had before Vectra AI was the lateral movement. Using AWS VPC Traffic Mirroring, Vectra AI gives us full visibility into our Nitro-based instances.”
Vectra Cloud Detection and Response (CDR) for M365 is the most advanced AI-driven attack defense for malicious threats to your Microsoft 365 apps and data.
