 Vectra AI, Inc., the leader in hybrid attack detection, investigation, and response, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Vectra AI to its annual Security 100 list. The list recognizes leading IT security vendors that are committed to working hand-in-hand with channel partners to protect businesses from cyber threats. This is the third year in a row Vectra AI has been featured, along with 2019 and 2018.

 As the issue of security remains a top concern for businesses of all shapes and sizes, this list serves as a guide for solution providers, spotlighting the leading security vendors to collaborate with as they deliver inventive solutions to their customers. The 9th annual list honors channel-focused security vendors across five technology categories: Endpoint and Managed Security; Identity, Access and Data Security; Network Security; Security Operations, Risk and Threat Intelligence; and Web, Email and Application Security.

 “CRN’s Security 100 list recognizes top-tier companies that provide the IT channel with groundbreaking offerings in a number of security areas that stand up to a wide range of threats and risks,” said Jennifer Follett, Vice President, U.S. Content and Executive Editor, CRN, at The Channel Company. “As security becomes ever more important to every business, these companies are laying the foundation for cutting-edge cybersecurity solutions.”

 With the shift to hybrid and multi-cloud environments, legacy threat detection and response tools are ineffective at protecting against the expanding hybrid attack surface. Organizations need solutions that eliminate silos and provide hybrid attack surface visibility across identity, public cloud, SaaS, data center and cloud networks and endpoints.

 Powered by Vectra AI’s patented AI-driven Attack Signal Intelligence, the Vectra AI Platform provides teams with a fully integrated approach to hybrid attack detection and response. Unlike legacy solutions that rely on anomalies and detection rules to alert on thousands of individual threat events, the Vectra AI Platform harnesses the power of AI to prioritize attacks that are most urgent and critical to their business. This enables SOC teams to take a risk-based approach to cyberattacks and reduce manual tasks, alert noise and analyst burnout — enabling teams to focus on the most urgent threats to their organization. Vectra AI arms channel partners with the expertise, services, and technologies they need to support customers who are looking to secure data and assets across the growing hybrid attack surface so they can take real and intelligent action against cyber threats.

 “The evolving and ever-changing threat landscape is presenting a challenge for security teams who have been tasked with securing an expanding hybrid attack surface at a time when the influx of security alerts is at an all-time high,” said Randy Schirman, VP of Worldwide Channels and Alliances at Vectra AI. “Our channel partners share in our same mission of wanting to make the world a safer and fairer place.  We pride ourselves on the partner community and relationships we’ve developed and view them as a critical component in delivering our AI-powered platform that truly helps customers stay ahead of today’s attacks.”
