How XDR enables MDR
- Comprehensive coverage: 360-degree visibility, high-fidelity detection, and fast remediation across multiple solutions (network firewall, web application firewall, email security, etc.) and in hybrid environments (on-premises, network and multi-cloud).
- Better Detections: The Stellar Cyber and ActZero AI-engines deliver advanced analytics, multi-variate and multi-vector correlations to improve signal-to-noise alert ratios, and automate response.
Cyber crimes are constantly evolving with new tactics and techniques － and businesses of all sizes struggle to keep pace. Indiscriminately adding tools and resources to solve the problem simply won’t work.
Many tools like security information and event management (SIEM), Network Detection and Response (NDR), and even Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) are very good at improving a businesses security posture, or even meet compliance requirements. Each was designed to give companies basic detections, a centralized view of security events, some place to help see, detect, and respond to threats from the single vector sources that populate them
If only adversaries worked that way.
In reality, adversaries search for "open doors and windows" on your network that can be exploited, then execute attacks against them. These holistic attacks can originate anywhere a vulnerability exists, whether that be the cloud, a server, a workstation endpoint, or a mobile device. From there, the attack can spread like wildfire, jumping across vulnerabilities and platforms until many endpoints and cloud systems are compromised.
Both ActZero and Stellar Cyber understand the inefficiency of using siloed tools with disparate management systems to solve for cybersecurity challenges that operate with little regard for technology boundaries.
In building up its detection capabilities, ActZero chose Stellar Cyber for its ability to integrate XDR detections －particularly its network and cloud detections － into its data lake. ActZero correlates and analyzes data from Stellar Cyber with its existing security tools and own endpoint sensors to add additional detections built off of Stellar’s out-of-the-box detections, and to expand its detection and response capabilities.
