Overview:

X-Series Appliance

Cognito runs on the X-series appliance, which can be deployed in three modes – Sensor, Brain or Mixed. In Sensor mode, the X-series ingests traffic, extracts metadata and forwards it to another Brain or Mixed-mode X-series for processing. In Brain mode, the X-series only receives metadata from one or more sensors. In Mixed mode, the X-series performs both Brain and Sensor functions.

Cognito Artificial Intelligence Platform

The Cognito automated threat detection and response platform from Vectra provides full visibility into cyber attack behaviors from cloud and data center workloads to user and IoT devices. Regardless of size or geographic spread, Cognito provides consistent threat detection coverage with no blind spots, leaving attackers with nowhere to hide.

Cognito has a brain and multiple sensors that provide input to the brain. The brain, which runs on the X-series appliance, receives input from S-series sensors. S-series sensors can be physical or virtual and receive input from third-party sources in the form of logs from security products, authentication systems, SaaS applications or indicators of compromise.

Because Cognito uses artificial intelligence, it automatically analyzes, triages, correlates and prioritizes threats across an enterprise in real-time, reducing the security-analyst workload by 29x.

To extend the reach of Cognito, S-series sensors are easily deployed at remote sites or with access switches on internal network segments. They passively monitor network traffic, extract critical metadata and forward it to the brain for analysis and threat detection.

S-series sensors can be deployed in-line as a bump-in-the-wire that fails-open or on a SPAN port or network TAP. The small size and simple deployment model of S-series sensors ensure that there is comprehensive coverage across the entire network, especially at remote offices, clinics and retail locations.

For network locations where scalable sensors are required, the X-series appliance can be deployed as a sensor for the brain. As a sensor, the X-series is deployed on a SPAN port or network TAP.
