The SC Awards 2022
The SC Awards Europe aims to recognize and reward innovative products and services that help repel imminent threats and cyber security attacks.
A jury composed of SC Media’s editorial team and cybersecurity stakeholders selected the shortlisted products. Vectra AI, in addition to its three “Highly Recommended” mentions, was named winner of the “Best Enterprise Threat Detection/Behavior Analysis” category.
Kevin Kennedy, senior vice president of products at Vectra, said:
“We are honored to receive this award from SC Media and to be recognized as the leader in enterprise behavioral analysis and threat detection. Vectra develops products with security teams in mind, helping them cut through the noise to prioritize their time to investigate and respond to real attacks. We continue to invest heavily in security AI research and development to provide the most reliable and accurate attack signal intelligence for modern hybrid and multi-cloud enterprises. Our goal is to help security teams turn the tables on cyber attackers.”
Paul Haywood, Group CISO at Bupa, said:
“With its advanced threat detection capabilities and clear focus on using AI to detect signals of cybercriminal behavior, Vectra was the natural choice for this award. In an era where ransomware, supply chain attacks and corporate account hacking are commonplace, it’s critical to identify attacks as early as possible so that security teams can stop them before a breach occurs.”
