Siriux Security Technologies, a supplier of identification and software as a service (SaaS) posture management, has been acquired by Vectra AI. Vectra will now be the only provider that can securely install and identify active threats in cloud identity and SaaS apps, such as Microsoft Azure AD and Microsoft 365, according to the acquisition.
“We have helped customers stop the gamut of modern attacker campaigns—from ransomware to supply chain to nation-state attacks like SolarWinds,” said Hitesh Sheth, President and CEO, Vectra AI.
He added, “SaaS applications have become a haven for cyberattacks and cloud identity is the way in. Through the combined expertise of the teams at Vectra and Siriux, we are now able to deliver the best protection for customers facing these threats.”
“Our solution ensures organizations have done everything possible to identify common attack paths in SaaS platforms and minimize the attack surface of their cloud identity and SaaS applications by following our recommendations,” said Aaron Turner, Founder and CEO, Siriux Security Technologies.
He added, “By joining forces with Vectra, we are now able to enhance our solution with proven, AI-driven capability to detect and respond to rapidly evolving attack methods that can still circumvent even the best security posture.”
Vectra is well-known for its AI-driven threat detection and response for hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructures, such as public cloud, SaaS, network, and identity. Siriux enhances Vectra’s coverage even earlier in the threat lifecycle, adding a layer of analytics to examine complicated identity and SaaS configurations, eliminating the gaps that attackers exploit.
Four fundamental ideas underpin Siriux’s industry-leading approach: privilege management, attack surface reduction, service hardening, and transitive trust management. Siriux evaluates the configuration of systems like Microsoft Azure AD and M365 against these criteria in order to provide prioritised, actionable recommendations to lower the probability of a successful attack.
The acquisition reaffirms Vectra’s commitment to solving customers’ security concerns as they implement hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructures that rely heavily on cloud identity and SaaS applications.
The financial details of the Siriux Security Technologies purchase have yet to be revealed. Siriux Security Technologies will operate under the Vectra brand and leadership as part of the deal.
