Vectra cybersecurity platform now available with Amazon

Cybersecurity company Vectra’s platform is now available in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) marketplace.

“As enterprises move their high-value data and services to the cloud, it’s imperative to reduce cyber-risks that can take down businesses,” said Gokul Rajagopalan, director of product management at Vectra. “Our continued strength and leadership in AI-driven cybersecurity – coupled with our availability in AWS marketplace – validate Vectra as a premier provider of network threat detection and response for the cloud.”

What this means is that Vectra’s platform will be using Amazon’s virtual private cloud (VPC) traffic mirroring to monitor connections in AWS deployments to detect hidden threats without using agents.

Once deployed Vectra will publish its insights in AWS Security Hub. The performance and health of the deployment can be fully monitored through Amazon CloudWatch.

The idea is that the tool will empower companies to keep abreast of their VPC instances as they scale, something that is no mean feat.

The news comes after Vectra announced in August that it would launch an office in Sidney, using the Australian location to tap into the Asia-Pacific market.

The Asian expansion was funded by Vectra’s $100m Series E investment round, which it closed earlier in the summer.
