FIRMUS partners with Vectra to expose hidden cyberattacks faster with AI

FIRMUS™, a leading, award winning regional Cyber Security Consulting company, and Vectra, the leader in AI-powered network detection and response, announced a partnership that enables FIRMUS™’ commercial, public sector and service provider customers to detect attackers in real time and perform conclusive incident investigations.

With cyber-attackers frequently evading prevention-centric approaches to network security, it’s a question of when and where – not if – an attacker can penetrate an organization. Enterprise-wide threat detection and response is becoming mandatory in today’s hostile digital environments.

“For over 13 years, FIRMUS™ has co-innovate with global leading cyber security brands to offer the highest level of security to our clients,” said Alan See, CEO & co-founder of FIRMUS™.”  Adding the Vectra Cognito AI platform to our portfolio ensures that our clients benefit from rapid detection of cyberattacks, regardless of the complexity of their network, and respond rapidly before vital assets are stolen.”

The Vectra Cognito platform meets today’s cyber security challenges by blending human expertise with a broad set of data science, machine learning and deep learning to automate the manual, time-consuming work of threat detection. With the AI-powered Cognito, FIRMUS™ customers can automate threat detection, expose hidden attackers and empower threat hunters to quickly perform effective incident investigations.

‘We are delighted to be partnering with FIRMUS in Malaysia”, stated Paul Coates, Regional Director, Asia for Vectra. “It is becoming even more important in current times for security teams to be armed with full visibility so that they can detect potentially dangerous activity across all applications, in real-time, from the endpoint to the network and cloud. True AI driven Network Detection & Response we feel has become an essential component in the modern SoC’.”

“Our partnership with FIRMUS will allow us to offer greater assistance to organisations throughout the region by improving their compliance to cyber risk management standards and regulations including RMiT as well as their overall security posture and visibility.”

FIRMUS™ security experts are certified and ready to provide consultancy and journey with enterprises security teams evaluating and implementing Vectra Cognito. “We are passionate and share Vectra’s high expectations for our partnership. As part of our holistic services, we offer proof-of-concept evaluations so our clients can experience first-hand the security values that Vectra Cognito creates,” said Alan See.
