Stellar Cyber Integrates Netskope to Boost Security Outcomes

Extended detection and response is, as some call it, the next generation of security intelligence simply because the technology enables organizations to detect and respond to advanced threats faster, easier and with more accuracy. The technology’s capabilities are creating a noise around it.

But, as with most things that gain popularity, there is a downside. The noise, or popularity, that surrounds XDR creates a difficult hurdle for buyers to find solutions that are right for them while avoiding ones that don’t meet their needs.

Stellar Cyber’s Open XDR solution jumps that hurdle. It allows organizations to use any security tools they want within their security stack, feeding alerts and logs into Stellar Cyber. The “open” approach that is laid out by Stellar Cyber allows any product to work with the platform.

Now, Stellar Cyber is making it possible for Open XDR users to improve their visibility of risks and threats by incorporating the user-centric data generated by Netskope in every investigation conducted by their security analysts.

“Automatically incorporating Netskope’s rich user data into every investigation in the Stellar Cyber platform adds critical context that previously required significant manual effort,” said Andrew Homer, vice president of technology alliances at Stellar Cyber.

Netskope, through the integration, maintains visibility and control across five lanes of user traffic in a single-pass cloud architecture. This includes web, managed SaaS, unmanaged SaaS, cloud service providers and public-facing custom apps.

While Netskope does that, Stellar Cyber ingests, normalizes and analyzes Netskope data, among other collected data, to identify potential threats creating prioritized, investigation-ready incidents. As security analysts complete incident investigations, Stellar Cyber automatically initiates response actions to third-party products integrated into the solution, including Netskope.

“Making security analysts more productive means attacker dwell time decreases, reducing the risk of breach across our customer's environment,” said Andy Horwitz, Vice President of Business Development at Netskope.

Open XDR platform is known to deliver comprehensive, unified security without complexity. The integration boosts the platform and minimizes manually intensive tasks, driving significant productivity gains across the SOC.
