Company Overview

The Cognito platform from Vectra provides continuous, automated threat surveillance to proactively expose hidden & unknown cyberattackers that actively spread inside networks.

The genesis of Cognito is based on a simple principle for finding hidden threats: use an authoritative source of data & seek out the fundamental threat behaviors that cybercriminals cant avoid when they carry out an attack.

To do this, Cognito relies on the only source of truth during a cyberattack network traffic. Only traffic on the wire whether in private data centers, public clouds or enterprise environments reveals the truth with complete fidelity & independence. Low-fidelity perimeter security only shows what youve already seen, not the hidden attacks that were missed.

Cognito delivers a far more efficient way of analyzing network traffic at scale. Instead of traditional payload inspection, it uses AI, machine learning & behavioral traffic analysis to expose the fundamental behaviors of attackers as they spy, spread, & steal in the network even in encrypted traffic.By automating cyberattacker detection, analysis & incident response,CognitoAI condenses days or weeks of work into minutes, reducing the threat investigation workload.
