The integration of AttackIQ and Vectra AI will aid clients in detecting attacks that have evaded existing security controls and in responding to the most recent threats on time. AttackIQ adheres to the “assume breach” philosophy, which recognizes when an attacker will breach an organization’s perimeter defences. The AttackIQ Security Optimization Platform employs automated breach and attack simulation technologies, the MITRE ATT&CK paradigm, to assist organizations in assessing their security controls, detecting misconfigurations or coverage gaps, and focusing resources on areas where risk exposure is most likely.

Carl Wright, Chief Commercial Officer of AttackIQ stated, “In today’s hyper-complex threat environment, organizations must think proactively and adopt advanced security capabilities to prevent successful attacks. This integration will allow our customers to validate the efficacy of the Vectra AI platform by utilizing AttackIQ’s PCAP replay and related network scenarios to find and fix coverage gaps throughout their security infrastructure before adversaries exploit them.”

The Vectra Platform employs security-led artificial intelligence (AI) to strengthen threat detection and response, ensuring speed, precision, and efficiency in detecting and stopping attacks, before. The platform collects information from network packets and logs to provide insight into a company’s public cloud and SaaS environment, federated identity, and data center networks. Vectra’s patented approach to AI detection analyzes all detections to prioritize threats and map events to the MITRE ATT&CK framework without noise or hunting. It also drives appropriate remediation and rapid response via other tools already in your security stack.

Geert Busse, Head of Next-Gen Solutions Pre Sales EMEA at Westcon said, “It is exciting to see AttackIQ and Vectra joining forces to help customers enable a proactive, threat-informed defense. As key vendors in our Westcon Next Generation Solutions go-to-market strategy, these two organizations are the backbone of our technology pillar, focusing on defense against emerging threats by delivering automation, integration and efficiency that our industry needs to detect and stop the latest generation of Threat Actors.”
