Malwarebytes and Stellar Cyber Shift Security Focus

By Greg Tavarez

Security products are more complex than ever. They have to be in order to protect against increasingly complex threats across growing attack surfaces.  But, that means IT teams have to spend more time learning how to use the tools and maintain security controls. This is frustrating to IT staff because they are pulled away from investigating and mitigating cyber threats – and doing other business-critical tasks – especially at a time when cyberattacks are more frequent, sophisticated, and damaging than in years past.

IT teams need assistance. Malwarebytes and Stellar Cyber set out on a mission to help those teams produce consistent security outcomes across all environments, whether it’s on-premises, cloud and anything in between, by pairing Malwarebytes' EDR solution with the Stellar Cyber Open XDR Platform.

"Organizations need real-time data sharing and visibility to enable decisive actions before attackers are successful," said Brian Thomas, Malwarebytes vice president of Worldwide MSP and channel programs. "Stellar Cyber shares our mission to simplify cybersecurity for resource-constrained organizations.”

Malwarebytes' EDR solution collects detailed threat information for analysis and investigation. The platform uses anomaly detection machine learning to detect known threats and find unknown zero-day threats. The Stellar Cyber Open XDR Platform ingests, normalizes and enriches security data, including endpoints, network, cloud and logs into a single repository.

With the integration, Malwarebytes EDR collects critical endpoint and server data and sends it to Stellar Cyber, which analyzes the data to identify potential threats. When security analysts complete their investigation in Stellar Cyber, response actions are sent to Malwarebytes to eliminate any threats.

"By tightly integrating Malwarebytes' cutting-edge EDR technology with the Stellar Cyber Open XDR platform, IT teams are able to close the gaps between security controls that attackers exploit," said Andrew Homer, vice president of technology alliances at Stellar Cyber.

IT and security teams need to shift from sifting through data to delivering more consistent security regardless of their skills. The Malwarebytes and Stellar Cyber integration delivers an automated solution that allows IT and security teams to better protect their organizations.
