Vectra Networks Recognized by CRN as a 2014 Emerging Vendor

Vectra Networks Named One of This Year's Hottest Tech Startups Impacting the IT Channel and Technology Industry

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/21/14 -- Vectra Networks, the leading innovator in real-time detection of in-progress cyber-attacks, today announced it has been recognized as one of 2014's hottest emerging technology vendors by CRN, the top news source for solution providers and the IT channel. The annual Emerging Vendors list identifies up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-value, cutting-edge solutions for their customers.

Vectra Networks detects attacks at every phase of an ongoing attack, regardless of how the attack enters an organization's network and the operating system, application or device involved. The Vectra X-series platform continuously monitors an organization's network and provides automated, intuitive and prioritized reporting so security analysts can address the highest business risks quickly, rather than spending valuable time sifting through thousands of alerts.

"Solution providers are always on the hunt for the next big technology trend so that they can bring new solutions to their customers before they even know they need them," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. "These vendors are on the forefront of IT innovation and are offering products and services that channel partners can use to stay ahead of the competition. We congratulate 2014's Emerging Vendors for creating the next wave of technology that will drive the IT industry forward, and for opening the door to new, unique solutions from the IT channel."

Solution providers have built strong security practices around perimeter security products such as next-generation firewalls, intrusion prevention systems and sandbox solutions. Vectra detects attacks that evade such perimeter security and is a natural fit for solution providers who want to lead the market in protecting their customers from targeted attacks for which signatures and reputation lists have very limited efficacy.

"CRN is the top news source for solution providers and the IT channel and it is rewarding to receive this honor," said Rick Geehan, Vectra Networks VP of North American Sales. "Partners like the Vectra X-series because it delivers immediate value for their customers. The X-series installs in minutes, delivers consumer-IT ease-of-use and provides real-time visibility into the attacks that evaded existing security solutions. Vectra enables channel partners to provide a complete defense-in-depth offering."

Companies included in CRN's 2014 Emerging Vendors list were founded in 2008 or later and are actively working with channel partners in North America. The list, along with information about each vendor, will be published in CRN's August 2014 issue and will also be available online at www.crn.com.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization).
