markus spiske 1288375 unsplashHelp AG, an information security services provider in the Middle East, has announced a partnership with Vectra, AI-powered network detection and response (NDR) provider

The agreement enables the security services and solutions provider to offer the Middle East enterprises Vectra’s Cognito AI-powered NDR platform, enabling them to detect, investigate and respond to cyber-attacks in real time

The Cognito platform provides pan-enterprise visibility, regardless of IT architecture choices and augments human expertise and capacity to address the 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.

Stephan Berner, CEO at Help AG, said, “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 machine learning are ideally suited to identifying threats and attacker behaviours, which is where Vectra excels.”

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 cybersecurity framework,” added Berner.

In addition, the security services and solutions provider will also leverage Cognito within its own cybersecurity operations centre (CSOC) to provide 24/7 advanced threat detection and response services.

Ammar Enaya, at Vectra, commented, “We are delighted to partner with Help AG, a trusted name in security and services in our regions. Their progressive approach, technical capabilities and services offered are a great fit for Vectra.”

“We are looking forward to this partnership helping our region’s enterprises dramatically reduce attacker dwell time and reduce their cyber-risk,” he concluded.
