In most situations, Network Detection & Response (NDR) tools alone are not enough to provide comprehensive security. The analysts must also be able to see logs, real-time traffic, and user behaviors to detect complex attacks.
Stellar Cyber, who took home the Gold for Best Cyber Analytics Solution in the 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, provides a pre-configured, single-license SecOps platform, powered by Open XDR that delivers built-in NDR as well as next-generation Security information and event management (SIEM) technology, User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA), and a Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP), to give analysts a full picture of what’s going on in the network.
Today’s cyberattacks occur across multiple vectors, so using a single tool to detect networks, user activities or endpoints can’t present a complete picture of these attacks.
The company’s platform features enterprise-class NDR capabilities and correlates and analyzes that data with data from its SIEM, UEBA, and TIP functions to detect complex attacks before they can do real damage.
In fact, the pre-configured, single-license Stellar Cyber Open XDR platform automatically ingests, normalizes, and enriches data from all sources (including third-party tools); automatically correlates and analyzes the data with an AI and machine learning-driven engine, and reports actionable incidents that analysts can immediately act upon to stop nascent attacks before they become a problem.
This reduces hacker dwell time in the customer’s network and ensures analysts are looking at real issues rather than chasing alerts and manually digging through data to find the needles in the haystack.

Legacy SIEM platforms can’t stop real-time, complex attacks because they aggregate logs, which are snapshots of what happened in the past.
The pre-configured, single-license Stellar Cyber single-license SecOps platform, powered by Open XDR, incorporates next-generation SIEM (NG-SIEM), NDR, UEBA, and TIP functionalities, correlates and analyzes all their data, and produces real-time, actionable incidents that are prioritized in order of severity so analysts can go directly to work remediating attacks before they cause real damage.
What is Open XDR?
Open XDR is a unified, AI-powered approach to detection and response, that collects and correlates all existing security tools, to protect the entire enterprise attack surface effectively and efficiently.
Open XDR is Everything Detection and Response, more than eXtended Detection and Response, because it must defend against all threats across the entire attack surface.
The only way to do this is by integrating with existing security tools.
Typically, organizations need an army of analysts to sort through SIEM data.
Stellar Cyber’s platform upends that structure by democratizing SecOps for security teams that are overworked and frustrated.
The company believes its Open XDR platform is the best SIEM solution because it goes well beyond SIEM, both in scope and in analytics, to reduce Mean Time to Detect (MTTD) by 8X and Mean Time to Respond (MTTR) by 20X.
Stellar Cyber’s cybersecurity software makes industry-leading security capabilities accessible to small/medium enterprises (SMEs) that might not have a large staff of security analysts or a large collection of security tools on hand.

Stellar Cyber’s pre-configured, single-license SecOps platform, powered by Open XDR, delivers built-in NDR, next-generation SIEM, UEBA, and TIP capabilities and integrates with existing third-party tools such as Endpoint Detection and Response (EDRs).
The platform also democratizes security by combining all this functionality under a single, easy-to-use dashboard that can be trained within a day and can be operated by lower-level analysts (who are easier to hire in the highly constricted security analyst environment).
As such, the platform brings world-class security within reach for SMEs and MSPs looking to expand their offerings with managed security services.
The Stellar Cyber Open XDR platform delivers Everything Detection and Response by ingesting data from all tools, automatically correlating alerts into incidents across the entire attack surface, delivering fewer and higher-fidelity incidents, and responding to threats automatically through AI and machine learning.

The Stellar Cyber XDR Kill Chain™, fully compatible with the MITRE ATT&CK framework, is designed to characterize every aspect of modern attacks while remaining intuitive to understand.
This reduces enterprise risk through early and precise identification and remediation of all attack activities while slashing costs, retaining investments in existing tools and accelerating analyst productivity.

Typically, Stellar Cyber delivers an 8x improvement in MTTD and a 20x improvement in MTTR. The company is based in Silicon Valley.

Stellar Cyber Returns to Compete in 2022 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program
American Security Today’s Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards is the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program, and now in its Seventh Year, recognizes industry leaders of Physical and Border Security, Cybersecurity, Emergency Preparedness – Management and Response, Law Enforcement, First Responders, as well as federal, state and municipal government agencies in the acknowledgment of their outstanding efforts to Keep our Nation Secure.
Best Cyber Analytics Solution
National Security requires scanning every potential ingress point for cyberattacks. Networks are the prime vector for cyberattacks, and network security focuses on spotting those attacks. Stellar Cyber addresses the challenge that network security is broken because it creates too many alerts and alert fatigue.
The good thing about network security (network detection and response, or NDR) tools is that they capture evidence of attacks from the true source – the network that connects everything, including servers, endpoints, users and the cloud.
The bad thing is that most network security tools create a torrent of alerts, leaving security analysts overwhelmed with alerts and spending all of their time chasing them down instead of responding to real security exploits.
Stellar Cyber’s Open XDR platform distills related alerts into contextual incidents so analysts can move quickly to responding to remediating real attacks.
Stellar Cyber’s platform was the first Open XDR platform – that is, it collects data from other, existing security tools (including NDR tools), or customers can deploy Stellar Cyber’s patented sensors that extract the relevant security data at ingestion, minimizing storage costs.
Stellar Cyber’s platform then normalizes their data for ingestion by its AI engine, and automatically correlates that data to spot breaches that might go unnoticed in security systems that require manual correlation of data from multiple consoles.

Homeland Security remains at the forefront of our national conversation as we experience an immigration crisis along our southern border, and crime rates that are dramatically higher than before the Pandemic across the United States.
These challenges have become a national priority with an influx of investments in innovative new technologies and systems.
The pinnacle of the Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program is the Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards Presentation Luncheon, an exclusive, affordable, gourmet, full-course plated meal event, in the heart of New York City, held at the International Security Conference & Exposition (ISC East) since it’s inception in 2017.
And who better to address the aforementioned challenges, and initiatives to meet today’s threat landscape than Deputy Executive Assistant Commissioner (DEAC) Diane J. Sabatino of the Office of Field Operations, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the opening keynote speaker at the much-anticipated 2022 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Presentation Luncheon, on Wednesday, November 16th, 2022.
As the DEAC of the Office of Field Operations, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Mrs. Sabatino leads more than 31,000 employees and oversees an annual operating budget of $6.5 billion.

Sabatino held at Identity Week Europe on leveraging biometric comparison technology in U.S. air, maritime, and land border environments for the security of passengers, enhancing the customer experience and limiting the transmission of biological pathogens while respecting personal privacies and educating the public as the CBP further expands the implementation of biometrics to keep up with threats to the aviation and other border sectors. These new technological tools are there to automate administrative functions so that the most valuable component of the process, the officers, are able to focus on critical issues as they arise.
