Prevent supply chain attacks

Digital supply chain attacks are on the rise — and the next Log4Shell or SolarWinds will leave your enterprise exposed. Now more than ever, you need to find and stop attackers exploiting supply chains even before a patch is available.

Patching won’t save you from a supply chain attack

With malicious code embedded deep in third-party software, skilled attackers can easily evade your VPNs and firewalls. And because vulnerabilities leave you dependent on patches from multiple vendors, attackers often enjoy months of unfettered access before discovery. Even with a perfect patching strategy. 


Supply chain attacks increased more than 600% in a single year.*


More than two-thirds of enterprise applications have known vulnerabilities.*

Be ready for the next Log4Shell or SolarWinds

Unfortunately, there will be a next time. Whether through hijacked software updates or compromised open-source code, bad actors are bound to find a workable attack vector. With intricate dependencies in the software ecosystem, all it takes is a single vulnerability in an obscure package to expose every enterprise organization to major risk. 

With Vectra AI, you’ll be ready. Vectra AI has pioneered Attack Signal Intelligence™ to find attacker methods mapped out in the MITRE ATT&CK and D3FEND frameworks. The result is better coverage with fewer false positives, enabling you to stop supply chain threats before damage is done.

4 in 5 customers agree: Only Vectra AI reveals the earliest signs of a supply chain attack

When comparing threat detection and response solutions, 4 in 5 customers choose Vectra AI. This powerful platform lets you identify critical threats sooner — even before the supply chain attack is publicly disclosed and IoCs are published.

AI-driven detections

Automated AI-driven detections focus on the methods attackers use to move laterally across data centers, public cloud and SaaS.

Advanced investigations

Security-led AI stitches together attack progression with the right context, empowering analysts to investigate and respond in minutes.

24x7x365 coverage

Cyber attackers don’t take vacations — and neither should your cybersecurity. Vectra AI gives you 24/7 coverage with skilled analyst reinforcements.

All hope is not lost

Even the most up-to-date software development best practices can't save you from sophisticated nation-state supply chain attacks. But that doesn’t mean you can’t take back control.

Vectra AI reveals the earliest signs of attacker activity so you won’t fall prey to the next SunBurst.

How to protect against software supply chain attacks

No matter how many prevention tools you put in place, threat actors will still find a way to slip through. How do you find the bad actors already hiding in your hybrid cloud environment? How can you move at the speed of attackers to prevent lateral movement?

Vectra AI puts three critical best practices at your fingertips.

1. Early detection

Over-reliance on patches and post-compromise restoration means many SOC teams are constantly playing catch up with the exploit of the day. But with today’s automated AI-driven detection, supply chain attacks aren’t nearly as difficult to detect as they once were.

Powerful cybersecurity AI delivers confidence so you’ll know about an attack without waiting for patches. It arms your team with high-fidelity attack detections, including east-west lateral movements, reconnaissance, command and control and use of stolen accounts. So you can eliminate vendor patch dependency for good.

2. Privileged access management

The first thing cyberattackers do after breaching a defense? Move laterally in search of privileged accounts — ones that can access sensitive data. With AI-driven threat intelligence, you can stop progression along this privileged pathway before supply chain attacks become possible.

Vectra AI learns account privilege with patented Privileged Access Analytics (PAA) to automatically focus on accounts most useful to attackers. It’s the fastest, most effective way to stop attacks in their tracks.

3. More clarity

As enterprises shift to hybrid and multi-cloud environments and embrace digital supply chains, security leaders are plagued by “more.” More attack surface. More signatures. More anomalies to monitor and rules to maintain. But with thousands of false positives, it’s impossible to see where the organization is actually compromised.

That’s why the Vectra AI platform uses machine learning to detect patterns and distinguish malicious activity from benign events. When a critical alert appears, you know it’s worth investigating. It’s how our customers find 3x more threats while reducing alert noise 80% or more.
