Help AG has announced a partnership with Vectra, a provider of AI-powered Network Detection and Response (NDR) technologies, to bring to the Middle East Vectra’s Cognito AI powered NDR platform.

The deal comes amidst widespread interest in AI, with over a quarter (27%) of organisations saying they have plans to invest in cybersecurity capabilities that use artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) .

The Cognito platform provides pan-enterprise visibility, regardless of IT architecture choices and augments human expertise and capacity to address today’s cybersecurity challenges by applying AI to provide rich context and coordinate incident response with existing security systems, reducing the security operations workload by up to 36X.

“We're looking beyond the AI buzz and embracing it as a tool that when applied correctly can drastically enhance cyber capabilities. Because it can process massive volumes of data, and automate and fine-tune analytics, AI and ML is ideally suited to identifying threats and attacker behaviours, which is where Vectra excels,” explained Stephan Berner, CEO at Help AG.

Vectra has built a comprehensive ecosystem around its platform through its technology alliances with several key vendors in Help AG’s portfolio including Palo Alto Networks, Splunk, Carbon Black, and Ixia. “This enables us to seamlessly integrate Vectra’s industry-leading AI-powered NDR capabilities into our solution architecture and thus enhance the effectiveness of our holistic cyber security framework,” said Berner.

In addition, the security services and solutions provider will also leverage Cognito within its own Cyber Security Operations Centre (CSOC) to provide 24/7 threat detection and response services. These services enable customers to identify and mitigate threats in real-time by entrusting this critical security function to Help AG’s expertly qualified team of Managed Security Services (MSS) professionals.

 “We’re delighted to partner with Help AG, a trusted name in security and services in our regions. Their progressive approach, technical capabilities and services offering are a great fit for Vectra,” said Ammar Enaya, regional director at Vectra. “We’re looking forward to this partnership helping our region’s enterprises dramatically reduce attacker dwell time and reduce their cyber-risk.”
