White Paper

How Vectra improves ROI and operational efficiency for cybersecurity

IT security is an ongoing exercise in ROI and operational efficiency. Organizations have a limited set of resources to address an unlimited set of risks, threats and attackers. This asymmetry means that security products must always be evaluated in terms of efficacy as well as their impact on the operational fitness of the organization. Is a solution a drain on manpower and resources or does it make staff more productive and nimble?
