Organizations around the world rely on Vectra to see and stop threats before a breach occurs. For more information, visit



Company Overview  

Vectra delivers a new class of real-time threat detection and advanced analysis of active network intrusions. Vectra picks up where perimeter security leaves off using AI to provide deep, continuous analysis of both internal and Internet-facing network traffic for all phases of the attack progression as attackers attempt to breach, spy, spread, and steal within networks. 

Vectra directly analyzes network traffic in real time using a combination of patent-pending data science, machine learning, and behavioral analysis to detect attacker behaviors and user anomalies in the network. All detections are algorithmically correlated and prioritized to show an attack in context, and Vectra’s machine learning adapts as attacks evolve.
