Security provider Stellar Cyber, with the first Open-XDR security platform, announced its new Threat-Hunting App Library, which eliminates an analyst’s need to use custom queries in order to search for cyber threats or create custom widgets and dashboards to make sense of the data under investigation.
The library, a collection of threat-hunting apps and their automated execution in the company’s Starlight platform, enable less-skilled security analysts to automatically hunt for threats at endpoints, in the network, or in the cloud with a few mouse clicks. With automation, it reduces the detection time from impossible to possible and from months to minutes.
As cyber threats multiply, companies face a shortage of highly skilled security analysts who can write complex queries to track down threats. Even these analysts can spend hours querying network logs to begin searching for threats.
In contrast, Stellar Cyber’s Threat-Hunting App Library includes a pre-built library of ever-increasing (currently at 30+) threat-hunting techniques for DNS analysis, Office365, Sophos and many other threat vectors, so even less-skilled security analysts can effectively track down threats in minutes rather than hours by picking the right app and leveraging Stellar Cyber’s automation and visualization.
“Stellar Cyber’s App Store approach to cybersecurity consolidates dozens of security applications under one intuitive interface,” said Ilker Simsir, Principal Product Manager at Stellar Cyber.
“Our Threat-Hunting App further improves analyst productivity by enabling point-and-click threat searches and helps ensure that those threats are found quickly through automation.”
