SANTA CLARA, CA–(BUSINESS WIRE). Detection strategy in any environment.
As part of Stellar Cyber’s Open XDR platform, these new sensors are particularly ideal for MSSPs looking to offer SOC-in-a-Box services to a broader set of customers who may have a smaller footprint but still have a comprehensive Want security cover at low price competitive price. Organizations with distributed environments can now ensure they are deploying the same detection strategies and telemetry collection methods, regardless of a multi-cloud, multi-prem, or remote office configuration. This architecture is also optimal for retailers, academic institutions, utilities, manufacturers, financial institutions, and healthcare providers.
“Rapid response to security incidents often requires sensors in close proximity to the devices under attack,” said Jon Oltsik, Senior Principal Analyst at ESG. “By reducing sensor costs in many use cases, Stellar Cyber helps organizations improve overall security posture and enterprise responsiveness.”
Multimodal detections possible
To combat today’s advanced cyberattacks, security teams must focus on incrementally improving mean response time (MTTR) and dwell time. In order to achieve this, full 360-degree visibility must be realized in every environment. Not surprisingly, creating blind spots is the quickest way to hamper a security team’s performance. Stellar Cyber’s new sensors enable ingestion of logs and API data at the edge, as well as a secure channel to orchestrate response to on-premises security tools such as firewalls and Active Directory. Additionally, these sensors natively perform Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and Network Traffic Analysis for additional visibility.
However, visibility is not enough to dramatically improve MTTR and dwell time. Security detections must be deployed as close to the point of attack as possible – ie distributed at the edge. Detections at the edge reduce central processing and data volume, ultimately resulting in a much faster response. Stellar Cyber Sensors natively include Intrusion Detection System (IDS), NTA, Anti-Virus and Malware Sandbox, all packaged together to facilitate detections at the edge. Stellar Cyber uses the term “multimodal detections” to describe its combination of edge detections and centralized detections on a single platform that leverages both machine learning (ML) and heuristic signatures.
These newly released sensors act as the eyes and ears of Stellar Cyber’s Open XDR platform, collecting the telemetry on attacks from every part of the network. They can be deployed in any form factor, virtual or physical, and in environments of any size, from a home office to a bandwidth-hungry data center. Importantly, they all share the same extensive set of skills, including:
Log Processing and Forwarding
Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and Network Traffic Analysis (NTA) for over 3500 network applications
Intrusion Detection System (IDS)
Sandbox for zero-day malware detection
Secure channel to orchestrate response to local security tools like firewalls or AD.
Centralized management including deployment, monitoring, software upgrade, etc.
Security teams can be assured of data collection and detection consistency across environments. Deployed in smaller footprint environments, the sensors are very affordable, allowing teams to significantly improve security visibility without prohibitive costs.
“Organizations have many different types of environments, but they all must implement consistent, multi-modal detection and response mechanisms to fully protect against today’s attacks,” said Sam Jones, Vice President of Product Management at Stellar Cyber. “By drastically lowering the cost of sensor deployment, Stellar Cyber enables organizations everywhere to achieve more complete security coverage.”
