Vectra becomes AWS Security Competency Partner

Vectra AI, a leader in threat detection and response, has announced that it has become an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Security Competency Partner. The move further confirms its technical expertise and proven customer success when further safeguarding AWS environments.

The competency designation recognises that Vectra has demonstrated deep cloud security expertise and has proven technology that helps customers further enhance their security measures across hybrid architectures and cloud environments.

An AWS Security Competency differentiates Vectra as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that provides specialised threat detection technology designed to help enterprises adopt, develop, and deploy complex security projects on AWS. To receive this designation, APN members must possess deep AWS expertise and deliver solutions seamlessly on AWS. Vectra achieved its AWS Security Competency status through a rigorous qualification process based on references and feedback from its customers.

Michael Porat, Vectra SVP, Corporate and Business Development, said: “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.

“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 organisations choose to configure their environments.”

Mizra Baig, IT Security Manager at Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC), added: “We are an AWS shop. Using AWS VPC Traffic Mirroring, Vectra gives us full visibility into our Nitro-based instances.”

The Vectra platform integrates with AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) traffic mirroring to monitor all infrastructure-as-a-service traffic. It also works with AWS Security Hub to publish Vectra detections as findings in the hub, allowing security teams to correlate Vectra attacker detections with other data sources for faster threat hunting and incident investigations.

Dudi Matot, Security Segment Lead at AWS, commented: “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.”
