Vectra AI has announced it has joined CrowdStrike’s CrowdXDR Alliance as a partner.
IT leaders are increasingly looking at XDR for a more unified approach to detecting and mitigating modern-day cyber threats by applying automation and analytics.
“XDR brings an intelligent and platform-based approach to cybersecurity, a much-needed evolution in IT security strategy. We are delighted to be a partner in the CrowdXDR Alliance, sharing our expertise and capabilities to support the Alliance’s shared goals of detecting advanced threats, stopping malicious actors and preventing future attacks,” David Sajoto, Regional Vice President of Asia Pacific and Japan at Vectra said.
Gartner identified vendor consolidation as among the top security and risk management trends for 2022, highlighting that security leaders must evolve strategies to protect an expanding digital footprint against emerging threats.
“Since its inception, the CrowdXDR Alliance has been committed to open and unified data sharing amongst our trusted technology partners. Together, we work with a long-term vision towards solving gaps in cyber threat investigation and threat detection. Combining our strong response capabilities has established a more holistic view and community-driven approach for proactive action towards cybersecurity defence,” says Sheriff El Nabawi, Vice President, Sales Engineering APAC & Japan at CrowdStrike.
Sajoto agrees, pointing out that an open XDR alliance is a crucial first step in addressing the complex and rapidly evolving threat landscape that security teams are now facing. He believes that in view of the scale, intensity, and sophistication of modern-day cyber-attacks, prevention alone and the analysis of high volume low-relevance anomalies is no longer enough.
David comments, “Today’s SOC is putting their organisation at risk if they don’t accelerate forward from traditional prevention only strategies. Attackers are agile, constantly evolving their approach and applying more advanced surveillance and attack methods every time.
Vectra is at the forefront of driving SOC transformation, moving away from traditional security approaches and enabling total attack surface coverage and containment. The road to cyber resilience for many businesses will require a transformed, AI-driven SOC.”
