Duffel, 28 May 2020 – Exclusive Networks – the global Value-Added Distributor in Cybersecurity & Cloud – today announced a distribution agreement for the Belux region with Vectra, recent winner of the 2020 Cyber Defence InfoSec Award for Next Gen Cloud Security and for Next Gen Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.
Powered by AI, the Cognito platform from Vectra enables enterprise organizations to detect cyber-attacks in real time and empowers threat hunters to perform conclusive incident investigations. Cognito provides 360-degree visibility into hidden threats in cloud, data centre, user and internet-of-things (IoT) infrastructures, leaving attackers with nowhere to hide.
“Vectra has created one of the most promising solutions in the field of cybersecurity,” says Ben Aelbrecht, General Manager of Exclusive Networks Belux. “Adding this vendor to our portfolio means being able to give our partners a wide range of solutions in a sector where technological implementation is essential to avoid attacks that could undermine the company’s production systems. Cyber-attacks are on the agenda and companies must take into account that investing in cyber security is not a cost, but an investment to secure one’s tangible and intangible assets. “
“As the attacker surface and threat landscape continues to expand, enterprises are faced with a daily battle between team resources and staying one step ahead of its adversaries” said Willem Hendrickx, VP International Sales at Vectra. “Combine this with the continued drive towards cloud migration and the building of next-generation security operations centres that are the pinnacle of operational efficiency, enterprises are actively seeking AI-based solutions that can automate many of the manual and time consuming tasks of threat detection and response, whilst reducing the noise of false-positive alerts. We are therefore delighted to partner with Exclusive Networks in Belux to accelerate our market leadership, develop our channel partnerships and help Belux companies reduce the risk of infringement and improve the efficiency of their security.”
