Vectra AI announced Vectra MDR global managed detection and response (MDR) services. Vectra MDR delivers the 24/7/365 cybersecurity skills needed to detect, investigate, and respond to threats where Vectra MDR analysts and customer security analysts work together inside the Vectra Threat Detection and Response platform to hunt, detect, prioritize, investigate and respond to attacks in progress. Whether customers choose to augment or outsource their security operations, Vectra’s shared responsibility model ensures constant communication and collaboration between Vectra MDR analysts and customer analysts.
As attack entry points go beyond traditional networks and endpoints and into public clouds, SaaS applications and identities, security teams are challenged with defending an ever-expanding hybrid cloud attack surface. More evasive attackers and overwhelming security alert noise add to the challenge as attackers find new ways to infiltrate and progress inside an organization unnoticed. Vectra MDR harnesses Security AI-driven Attack Signal Intelligence to automate threat detection, triage and prioritization for SOC teams thus reducing alert noise, false positives and analyst burnout. With Vectra MDR services powered by Attack Signal Intelligence, customer security teams have complete visibility and context for how an attack progresses through the cyber kill chain — ultimately stopping them from becoming breaches.

“With the scale and sophistication of cyberthreats on the rise, security teams are burdened with overwhelming alert noise and inadequate threat signals while attempting to defend expanding hybrid cloud attack surfaces,” said Kevin Kennedy, Senior Vice President of Products at Vectra. “Vectra MDR provides security teams with the resources they need to stop attacks 24/7/365 whether they just need our security analyst expertise to augment their security operations teams or to completely outsource detection and response. Vectra MDR along with Attack Signal Intelligence gives security teams both the threat signal needed to stop attacks and the resources and expertise required to stay ahead of attacks in today’s security operations centers.”
