Arista Networks, Inc. ANET has joined the Microsoft MSFT Intelligent Security Association (“MISA”) — an ecosystem comprising software vendors and security service providers that have combined their solutions to offer better protection against modern cyber threats.

Arista was selected based on the integration between its NDR (Network Detection and Response) platform and Microsoft Azure Sentinel. This enables faster remediation of threats by combining network context and threat detection with log-based and endpoint insights within Azure Sentinel.

Arista’s Awake Security is an NDR platform provider that combines artificial intelligence with human expertise to autonomously hunt and respond to insider and external threats.

Arista NDR analyzes full network packet data to enable a number of autonomous use cases. Driven by Arista AVA (Autonomous Virtual Assist), an AI-enabled decision support system, the NDR platform classifies network entities such as devices, users, and applications across campus, data center, IoT, and cloud networks.

Arista continues to benefit from strong momentum and diversification across its top verticals and product lines. The stock has rallied 93.9% in the past year compared with the industry’s growth of 23.9%.
