CrowdStrike and Vectra Partner Against Cybercrime
Automated threat hunting software vendor Vectra today announced a partnership with California-based endpoint protection solution provider CrowdStrike. The partnership will allow for the integration of Vectra’s Cognito solution and CrowdStrike’s Falcon Insight solution, with the intention to reduce security team response and investigation time as well as attacker dwell time on enterprise servers.
According to the press release from Vectra, this solution integration will allow joint customers to detect, triage, and remediate high-levels threats in progress on corporate endpoints and networks. It will take advantage of CrowdStrike’s contextual data on specific attacked devices. “Integration with CrowdStrike combines valuable context from the network and the endpoint to paint a comprehensive picture of an active cyberattack,” said Kevin Kennedy, Vectra Vice President of Product Management. “Joint customers can view endpoint context directly…and take immediate action to mitigate the threat, eliminating the manual pivoting between consoles that takes up valuable analyst time and slows response.”
“The integrated solution reduces the time to detect, prevent and resolve threats, and the ease of use of the combined SaaS solution offerings turn the legacy vendors in the market on their head,” said CrowdStrike Vice President of Worldwide Alliances Matthew Polly.
John Shaffer, CIO at independent investment bank Greenhill, said in a related statement:“Every day is a race to stay ahead of threat actors. We need the best and fastest way to pinpoint attacker behaviors on the network and immediately shut down attacks on the endpoint. Vectra gives us a head start in the network and CrowdStrike speeds across the finish line at the endpoint.”
Both Vectra and CrowdStrike were named as Visionaries in the Gartner Magic Quadrant Reports for Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems and Endpoint Protection Platforms, respectively. The integration between the two solutions is currently available.
