Products and Services

The Vectra X-Series platform performs malware detection and provides real-time insights into advanced persistent threats using machine-learning algorithms. Vectra complements existing perimeter defenses by inspecting traffic on the inside of a network (usually referred to as East-West traffic) and applying data science to expose attacks. A cloud service ensures that all Vectra platforms are up-to-date. The company applies a Threat Certainty Index that automatically displays the more significant threats based on contextual scoring.
