ED&F Man Chooses Vectra’s Cognito to fortify its network security

In News, Uncategorized

Vectra today announced that ED&F Man selected the Cognito network detection and response platform from Vectra to expose attackers hidden inside its network, spot privilege misuse and perform conclusive incident investigations.

The Cognito platform collects and stores the right network metadata and enriches it with unique security insights. A cornerstone of the Cognito platform, Cognito Detect uses that security-enriched metadata and sophisticated machine learning techniques to detect and prioritise attacks in real-time. ED&F also uses Cognito Recall for AI-assisted threat hunting.

With privileged accounts being an entry point, ED&F Man uses the Cognito suite of Privileged Access Analytics (PAA) detection models to monitor the interactions between user accounts, services and hosts.

“Cognito was key in our journey,” says Carmelo Gallo, cybersecurity manager at ED&F Man. “We started with the network because Cognito is easy to install and we get immediate visibility into attacker behaviours that hide in traffic.”
