Vectra AI has unveiled its modernised global channel partner program, new training and expansion into the commercial market to meet accelerated demand for one of the fastest growing markets in cybersecurity.
The new partner program significantly upgrades the overall framework, increases investment in partner relationships on a massive scale and allows partners to drive their business, while Vectra focuses on ensuring customer success. Building on its rapid momentum as a trailblazer in the NDR market, Vectra was recently recognised in the Gartner 2020 Market Guide for NDR.
“Vectra has always been a channel-focused company and we are thrilled to roll out new benefits that strengthen the way our partners conduct business,” said Hitesh Sheth, President and CEO at Vectra. “NDR is gaining unprecedented traction and we look forward to strengthening our partnerships with a scalable partner framework and training program.”
The Vectra global channel partner program now offers three categories based on the organisation’s market approach: sell (resell Vectra); deliver services (deliver Vectra services with partner solutions); and manage services (implement Vectra as a managed service).
The program is further customised into tiers based on each partner’s level of commitment, ensuring they can design the program to fit their unique needs. Ambassador partners are industry-leading professionals who have demonstrated higher levels of capability and performance. Authorised partners are in the early stages of their relationship and will take part in the new sales accreditation and technical certification training.
“Vectra’s Cognito platform has enabled us to embed powerful AI-driven NDR capabilities into our solution architecture, enhancing our holistic cybersecurity framework and enabling our customers to effectively detect, investigate and respond to cyberattacks in real time”, said Stephan Berner, CEO at Help AG. “Help AG’s business model is built around being the trusted cybersecurity advisor to our customers and Vectra’s program perfectly complements this strategy. It rewards us for our commitment and technical expertise in a manner that enables us to further enhance our value-proposition to customers.”
“We are excited to be working with Vectra,” said Grant Paling, Global Services Product Manager at Orange CyberDefense. “The strong focus on network detection and response compliments our service offering perfectly, as Orange CyberDefense provides managed capabilities for both holistic visibility and actionable insights that allow customers to secure their widening digital footprints from attack. The introduction of the Vectra partner program has further helped to improve the ease of engagement through better flexibility and alignment to our model as a managed security services provider.”
