PCAP Replacement

Packet Capture (PCAP) solutions are no longer enough for enterprises operating in a hybrid and multi-cloud world. Vectra AI provides the integrated signal you need to find active attacks in real time.

PCAP Replacement
You can’t rely on yesterday’s PCAP for today’s threats

PCAP solutions are built to protect the perimeter, but your organization is operating in a hybrid and multi-cloud world. And these legacy tools can’t help you find and stop attacks happening in real time.

It’s time to stop focusing on the perimeter and start thinking like attackers who see one giant attack surface. Your security team deserves more coverage, clarity and control for your entire environment.

The Challenge

PCAP leaves huge gaps

With a focus on network monitoring for on-premises environments, PCAP solutions create all kinds of vulnerabilities for bad actors to exploit. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Simplify Security Operations: Ditch PCAP for Integrated Signal and AI-Driven Detection

In an evolving hybrid cloud world, including both on-premises and cloud infrastructure — PCAP does not cut it. PCAP strengths primarily rely on network monitoring for on-premises environments, leaving huge gaps and vulnerabilities for bad actors to exploit.

The Solution

Know what’s happening across your environment

Powered by the industry’s most advanced Attack Signal Intelligence™, the Vectra AI Platform delivers the integrated signal you need to stop attacks happening in real-time.

AI-driven Detections

AI-driven detections analyze post-compromise attacker behaviors across network, identity, cloud and SaaS infrastructure, covering more than 90% of MITRE ATT&CK techniques.

AI-driven Triage

AI-driven triage uses machine learning to understand your unique environment, distinguish between malicious and benign events and reduce alert noise by 85% or more.

AI-driven Prioritization

AI-driven prioritization correlates, scores and ranks incidents by urgency level, enabling analysts to proactively identify 3x more threats.

How it Works

Discover the power of the Vectra AI Platform

We deliver the integrated signal you need to find attacks no matter your pane of glass.

PCAP doesn’t play well with others

PCAP systems don’t integrate well with other solutions such as SIEMs, forcing SOC teams to constantly toggle between various solutions that don’t communicate.

Switch to one integrated signal

With certified integrations for SIEM and SOAR workflows, the Vectra AI Platform provides one integrated signal for any pane of glass. So you can see and stop real attacks in real time.

Packet Capture slows down analysts

PCAP requires constant maintenance of massive storage volumes. It not only impacts performance but slows down SOC teams, too.

Free your SOC to focus on what matters

Vectra NDR sends enriched data to your SIEM so you can automatically detect threats — no need for time-intensive maintenance.

PCAP models can’t account for the unknown

Threat detection models are mainly based on known attacks and can't accurately detect modern live-off-the-land attacks or function in real time.

Signatures and AI-driven Detection

Our NDR solution combines signatures for known threats with AI-driven behavior-based detection for unknown threats, providing end-to-end protection against hybrid and multi-cloud attacks.

Moving beyond Packet Capture, the Vectra AI way


With consolidated attack telemetry across your entire hybrid attack surface, you get the visibility you need for complete coverage on all hybrid attacker methods.


We combine AI-driven detection with signature-based context to expose all malicious behavior. By correlating and validating threat signals for accuracy, you know what’s malicious — so you can focus on real attacks.


Our platform optimizes your existing SIEM workflows while satisfying GRC and SOC compliance requirements, so you can feel safe parting ways with your outdated PCAP solution.
