Stellar Cyber has integrated an XDR Kill Chain model into the 4.0 version of its Open XDR extended detection and response platform, the cybersecurity company says.
The XDR Kill Chain combines a high-level view of a cyberattack's progression and the tactics and techniques used in the attack, Stellar Cyber indicated. It features a loop that classifies a cyberattack into any of the following phases:
- Initial attempt
- Persistent foothold
The XDR Kill Chain helps security analyst teams identify internal and external cyberattacks and full attack progressions, Stellar Cyber said. In doing so, the model enables MSPs, MSSPs and managed detection and response (MDR) providers to improve security team efficiency and boost the effectiveness of their cybersecurity protection, detection and response capabilities.
Stellar Cyber: Business and Security Partner Milestones
Stellar Cyber has been busy on the R&D (research and development front). And many of the moves are designed to specifically serve MSP and MSSP partners. Noteworthy milestones include:
- June 2021: The company incorporated centralized management capabilities into Open XDR. The move enabled MSSPs to access multiple Open XDR customer sites with a single sign-on, from a single console and under a single license.
- April 2021: The company integrated its Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP) into Open XDR. The result: Customers can automatically collect and aggregate feeds from multiple sources into a single consolidated threat intelligence resource, the company says.
Stellar Cyber offers the Jumpstart Partner Program, which allows MSSPs to integrate Open XDR into their portfolios. The partner program also has focus areas for technology resellers and distributors.
