Vectra appoints Nuvias Group as sole UK distributor


Artificial intelligence (AI) threat detection and response provider Vectra has selected the Nuvias Group as its only strategic distributor across the UK.

Vectra specialises in using AI to detect cyber crime and help organisations thwart attacks before they become full breaches. The company’s platform enables unified threat visibility for public or hybrid cloud, software as a service (SaaS), identity and corporate networks, extending to environments such as AWS, Azure AD, and Microsoft 365.

The new distribution agreement builds on Vectra’s existing partnership with Nuvias company Cloud Distribution as the firm moves to harness the role of the channel in the UK.

The collaboration will leverage Nuvias’ range of partner enablement services, which utilise the latest business intelligence tools, to address the digital transformation needs of MSSPs, GSIs, and SIs, and their customers, Vectra said.

Vectra UK&I Regional Director Garry Veale said demand for intelligent, threat-led security is “at an all-time high” as the likes of ransomware and wiper malware continue to target enterprises.

“To meet demand, we selected the Nuvias Group, because we value its proactive approach to distribution, knowledge of the market, and technology expertise,” he explained.

“The Nuvias Group’s integrated offering will give more organisations the opportunity to use Vectra as part of a holistic solution and reduce their mean time to detect attacks. This is a logical next step to expand on the great work from Cloud Distribution”

Vectra said it will leverage Nuvias’ 1600-strong UK partner network, as well as its integrated solutions and ancillary services, to help its expansion from the SMB market into medium and large enterprises.

“With its focus on innovation and significant investments into R&D, Vectra fits perfectly into the Nuvias portfolio of cyber security and intelligent networks, complementing the existing range of solutions,” said Lee Driscoll, MD of Nuvias UK&I.

“Vectra’s NDR and cross cloud capabilities give commercial partners, SIs, and MSSPs a great value proposition to bring to customers, offering them a simple way to adopt advanced security measures and complete their SOC (Security Operations Centre) visibility triad.”
