Azure Brain Deployment Guide

Please see attachment at the bottom of this article for the full document!


This document outlines the steps to deploy a Vectra Detect for Network Brain in a customer’s Azure subscription.  The Brain is deployed using the Azure CLI with a template provided by Vectra.  The template references a Brain image that is made available to individual Azure logins via a shared image gallery.

For more details around initial settings for the Brain after successfully deploying it in Azure, see the Vectra Cognito Platform Getting Started Guide that is available on the Vectra Support portal.
