Vectrix 101

Learn more about what Vectrix is and how Vectrix works.

Overview

​Vectrix is changing the way startups and growing security teams bootstrap their cloud and SaaS security monitoring capabilities.

Until now, there hasn't been a way for organizations to quickly and easily implement their critical detection and alerting coverage - that is, security engineers being able to simply connect the cloud services and SaaS applications they use and know that they'll get alerted if/when something goes wrong.

With Vectrix, teams of all sizes can easily implement security safeguards and monitoring across the cloud and SaaS vendors they use most, like AWS, GitHub, G Suite, and more, all in a matter of minutes and clicks.

What kind of security coverage does Vectrix provide?

Vectrix automatically monitors for security issues and risks in Cloud Service Providers and SaaS applications.

This includes issues and risks like misconfigurations, bad practices, non-compliance, risky/suspicious activity, and more.

Cloud Service Providers we accommodate (or plan to accommodate) include vendors like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Microsoft Azure.

SaaS applications we accommodate (or plan to accommodate) include vendors like GitHub, G Suite, Slack, Salesforce, Zoom, etc.

How does it work?

Vectrix works by providing its users with a library full of individual security monitoring tools, called Vectrix Scanners, that are each designed to continuously scan a specific vendor for a set of security issues that are unique to that vendor, and then alert when any are detected.

This approach gives great flexibility, scalability, and simplicity to engineers and growing security teams who have speed and time to value as a top priority. Users are able to pick and choose as many (or as few) scanners as they'd like for the vendors they use. Users are also able to add scanners as they onboard new vendors themselves.

Even better, Vectrix Scanners are continuously being added to the platform. This means that as new vendors become more and more popular out in the field, you can bet on Vectrix having a scanner for it or a scanner in the works.
