Vectra AI, a leader in threat detection and response, today announced its membership in the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA). MISA is an ecosystem of independent software vendors and managed security service providers that drives enterprise defense against the latest cyber threats.
Vectra was nominated for MISA for integrating its Cognito platform with Microsoft Defender for Endpoint and Microsoft Azure Sentinel. The goal was to better support organizations ‘ Security operations Center (SOC) by reducing workloads and increasing accurate threat response. By working with Microsoft, the joint customers benefit from well-coordinated response measures that allow them to block and isolate attackers-rather than resources-as well as reduce the dwell time of attackers, which increases the risk to the company.
“Collaboration is the key to success in today’s threat landscape,” explains Randy Schirman, Vice President, Partnerships, at Vectra. “Our technology is characterized by accelerating the detection and investigation of threats through AI-enriched network metadata, enabling security teams to detect known and unknown threats in real time. We are proud to join this network of innovation-driven security providers dedicated to improving protection for our shared customers.“
“Members of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association, such as Vectra AI, offer solutions that enhance defense work against a world of increasingly sophisticated, fast-moving threats,” comments Rob Lefferts, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Defender. “Integrating Microsoft 365 with the appropriate solutions allows us to work together to help customers navigate the security landscape.“
Vectra also recently announced the availability of its Cognito platform in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, an online store that offers applications and services for use on Microsoft Azure. Companies interested in leveraging Vectra’s Cognito platform in the cloud, data center, networking, and IoT / OT can now test or purchase Cognito in the Azure Marketplace, leveraging their existing contracts with Microsoft
