Vectra | June 30, 2022
Vectra AI, a pioneer in threat detection and response, said today that it has been an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Security Competency Partner, proving its technical knowledge and demonstrated customer success when it comes to further protecting AWS environments. The competence designation acknowledges Vectra's strong cloud security experience and proven technology, which assists clients in further enhancing their security measures across hybrid architectures and cloud environments.
Vectra's AWS Security Competency distinguishes it as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that delivers specialized threat detection technologies to assist organizations in adopting, developing, and deploying complex security projects on AWS. To be eligible for this distinction, APN members must have extensive AWS knowledge and be able to offer solutions on AWS effortlessly. Vectra earned AWS Security Competency accreditation after a thorough qualification process based on references and customer feedback.
"Becoming an AWS Security Competency Partner is an exciting milestone for Vectra and for many of our customers who leverage AWS as a critical component in their everyday operations. Solving threat detection and response challenges for our customers is top priority and this competency further validates our ability to do that in the cloud and wherever organizations choose to configure their environments."

"We are an AWS shop. Using AWS VPC Traffic Mirroring, Vectra gives us full visibility into our Nitro-based instances," said Mirza Baig, IT Security Manager at Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC).
To monitor all infrastructure-as-a-service traffic, the Vectra platform interfaces with AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) traffic mirroring. It also integrates with AWS Security Hub to publish Vectra detections as findings, enabling security teams to correlate Vectra attacker detections with other data sources for faster threat hunting and incident investigations.
"Achieving the AWS Security Competency validates Vectra for its technical expertise and ability by enabling customers to further secure their journey through the different stages of cloud adoption—from migration through day-to-day management," said Dudi Matot, Security Segment Lead at AWS.

SentinelOne | June 29, 2022
SentinelOne , an autonomous cybersecurity platform company, today announced a new integration with Torq, a no-code security automation platform. The combination of SentinelOne and Torq allows security teams to accelerate response time, reduce alert fatigue, and improve overall security posture.
“SentinelOne’s powerful intelligence and protection helps security teams protect their employees and customers – no matter how complex the environment. “With Torq, security teams can extend the power of SentinelOne to systems across the organization to automate workflows, respond faster, maintain/boost compliance to benefit from a proactive security posture.”
Eldad Livni, Chief Innovation Officer, Torq
The SentinelOne integration with Torq combines SentinelOne’s powerful detection and protection with Torq’s no-code automation, enabling customers to limit alert fatigue, respond to threats at machine speed, and proactively identify and remediate risks. Torq makes it easy for security teams to create automated workflows, with a drag and drop workflow builder and hundreds of templates aligned with industry best practices and frameworks from MITRE and NIST. With robust data from SentinelOne, the Torq solution has access to more high-fidelity threat data for improved enrichment, accelerated response times, and alert fatigue reduction.
Torq workflows can listen for SentinelOne alerts, and ingest these to trigger action in any security or operations tool. The solution deploys out-of-the-box in minutes with no coding, installation, or ‘connectors’ needed. Key benefits of the integration include:
Real-time threat enrichment - automatically enrich alerts from any system with data directly from SentinelOne Singularity.
Automated remediation - remediate threats with fully autonomous or partially autonomous remediation workflows to accelerate mean time to respond.
Optimize SOC workflows - clearly and quickly orchestrate threat hunting, information sharing, and ticket creation for vulnerability management.
Bot-driven collaboration - Create no-code interactive chat bots that allow users to perform critical actions, run deep visibility queries, or control SentinelOne endpoints from within Slack or other chat tools.
“The SentinelOne-Torq integration provides joint customers with a powerful combination of best-in-breed automated security solutions,” said Ruby Sharma, Head of Technical Partnerships, SentinelOne. “Not only are customers utilizing industry leading endpoint protection and XDR, they also have access to innovative security automation tools that can accelerate workflow automation. We are pleased to make this integration available via the Singularity Marketplace, and we look forward to expanding our offerings to address even more use cases.”
SentinelOne’s cybersecurity solution encompasses AI-powered prevention, detection, response and hunting across endpoints, containers, cloud workloads, and IoT devices in a single autonomous XDR platform.
