Vectra AI and Gigamon Announce New OEM Partnership to Reduce Cybersecurity Risk for Large Enterprise Organizations

Vectra AI

Vectra AI Inc., the leader in hybrid attack detection, investigation and response, and Gigamon, the leading deep observability company, have announced a new OEM partnership to deliver intelligent extended detection and response (XDR) across hybrid cloud environments. Vectra AI combines the power of its AI-driven Attack Signal Intelligence with the deep observability capabilities of the Gigamon GigaVUE Cloud Suite to effectively detect and respond to previously unseen threats, using cloud network-derived intelligence and insights. Under the terms of the OEM agreement, Vectra AI will sell and support the combined solution on a worldwide basis.

DevOps, NetOps, and SecOps teams must ensure that hybrid and multi-cloud workloads are deployed securely and continuously monitored to effectively identify and remediate security threats and performance anomalies. Security analysts are inundated by a never-ending succession of alerts and logs about potential network attacks, making it nearly impossible to identify and respond to the most serious threats before they propagate. In parallel, the scale of network data available to enterprise IT organizations continues to explode. This combination is driving an increased requirement for deep observability into hybrid cloud infrastructure by delivering network-derived intelligence and insights on attacks spanning on-premise and cloud infrastructure.

This new integration builds upon a longstanding relationship between Vectra AI and Gigamon and underscores the companies’ ongoing commitment to working together to close the gap that exists between perimeter defenses and post-breach analysis by improving visibility. The Vectra AI Platform leverages the integration with Gigamon GigaVUE Cloud Suite to provide enhanced hybrid attack visibility and context including lateral – or East-West – visibility by bringing cloud network-derived intelligence from Gigamon directly into the platform. This results in reduced detection latency, reduced risk exposure, and optimized Security Operations Center (SOC) team workflows – combined into one easy-to-deploy solution.

The Vectra AI Platform empowers organizations by:

  • Accessing the only integrated attack signal across network and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) environments including AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) with Vectra AI Security AI-driven Attack Signal Intelligence
  • Consolidating various data sources into a single pane of glass to optimize investigation and response activities to reduce manual workload on the SOC team and consolidate network and cloud traffic sensors and software
  • Simplifying cloud native traffic forwarding support from the Gigamon Deep Observability Pipeline directly to the Vectra AI Platform
  • Reducing cost by eliminating the need for cloud native tools

“Recent trends in the cybersecurity industry indicate many XDR offerings have expanded to capture new categories of events,” said Chris Kissel, research vice president in IDC’s Security and Trust Products Group. “By adding support for more data sources and threat intelligence and leveraging the power of Gigamon and Vectra AI for hybrid and multi-cloud visibility, this transition to more multifunction network detection for both on-premise and cloud aligns well with the use case of network/security operations evolution and migration to the cloud.”
