Vectra AI, a threat detection and response provider, announced that it has become an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Security Competency Partner, confirming its technical expertise and proven customer success when it comes to further protecting AWS environments.
The competency designation acknowledges Vectra’s deep cloud security expertise and proven technology, which assists customers in further enhancing their security measures across hybrid architectures and cloud environments.
Vectra’s AWS Security Competency distinguishes it as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that provides specialized threat detection technology to assist enterprises in adopting, developing, and deploying complex security projects on AWS. To be eligible for this designation, APN members must have extensive AWS knowledge and be able to deliver solutions on AWS seamlessly. Vectra earned AWS Security Competency status after a rigorous qualification process based on references and customer feedback.
“Becoming an AWS Security Competency Partner is an exciting milestone for Vectra and for many of our customers who leverage AWS as a critical component in their everyday operations,” said Michael Porat, Vectra SVP, Corporate and Business Development. “Solving threat detection and response challenges for our customers is top priority and this competency further validates our ability to do that in the cloud and wherever organizations choose to configure their environments.”
“We are an AWS shop. Using AWS VPC Traffic Mirroring, Vectra gives us full visibility into our Nitro-based instances,” said Mirza Baig, IT Security Manager at Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC).
To monitor all infrastructure-as-a-service traffic, the Vectra platform integrates with AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) traffic mirroring. It also integrates with AWS Security Hub to publish Vectra detections as findings, allowing security teams to correlate Vectra attacker detections with other data sources for faster threat hunting and incident investigations.
“Achieving the AWS Security Competency validates Vectra for its technical expertise and ability by enabling customers to further secure their journey through the different stages of cloud adoption—from migration through day-to-day management,” said Dudi Matot, Security Segment Lead at AWS.
