I have around ten years of experience working in the finance industry.
I am evaluating Corelight and Vectra AI. What is the biggest difference between the two? Which would you recommend?
Thanks! I appreciate the help.
The two platforms take a fundamentally different approach to NDR. Corelight is limited to use cases that require the eventual forwarding of events and parsed data logs to a security team’s SIEM or data lake. You then rely on an open-source community for things like detections.
Vectra not only does that – but also enriches the underlying data. It is also delivered as an investigative workbench that includes out-of-box detections that highlight and prioritize attacker behaviors and campaigns. Perhaps just as importantly, Corelight has few integrations whereas Vectra natively integrates with parts of infrastructure like EDR, orchestration and network security products.
Corelight is a Zeek based solution for network behavior analysis and Vectra AI is a User Behavior based solution. If you are comparing these 2 systems you are comparing apples to oranges. You shouldn't be evaluating these products against each other as they address different use cases for your network. My guess is you are either looking for better network visibility and possibly network detection or you need to understand insider threats (User Behavior). If you need both then you need both tools.
Does this help? https://www.vectra.ai/discover/vectra-vs-corelight
Corelight. Its based on bro. Most top SIEMS using bro as engine. Corelight owns it. they develop it. Easy to deploy, amazing threat hunting, Threat detection and response. The list is endless but TCO better with Corelight as well.
I would recommend you look at Darktrace instead. Extrahop and the new kid on the block, Awake security are also recommended.
What do you like most about Vectra AI?
