Stellar Cyber Open XDR solution now available on OCI
Tue, 15th Aug 2023

Stellar Cyber has announced the availability of its Open XDR platform on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). Customers of both Oracle and Stellar Cyber can utilise the solution to reduce cyber risk and improve security analyst efficiency and effectiveness.

"We find that OCI is a user-friendly platform, which correlates directly to our commitment to making security operations simpler," says Andrew Homer, VP of Strategic Alliances for Stellar Cyber. 

"We are excited to work with OCI to deliver the security solutions our shared customers require and trust."

The Stellar Cyber Open XDR platform eliminates manually-intensive security tasks while enabling security teams to quickly monitor, identify, and respond to threats in their cloud, on-premises, OT and hybrid environments.

This is possible through integrations and support for all enterprise data sources, field-vetted AI/ML-driven correlation, and purpose-built intelligent automation.

By running on OCI, the Stellar Cyber platform offers its best-in-class security outcomes to OCI users. 

"Stellar Cyber is committed to providing the critical capabilities security teams need to deliver consistent security outcomes—all for a single license and price on a single platform," says Jim O'Hara, Chief Revenue Officer at Stellar Cyber. 

"This simple yet comprehensive model makes it easy for customers to measure how our Open XDR platform dramatically impacts their security ROI." 

Stellar Cyber is a member of the Oracle Partner Network (OPN). OCI customers can now purchase Stellar Cyber via the Oracle Cloud Marketplace, applying Oracle Universal Credits (OUCs) toward the purchase price. 

"We designed OCI with a security-first mindset, which is one of the many reasons why enterprises continue to trust Oracle with their data," says David Hicks, Group Vice President, Worldwide ISV Cloud Business Development, Oracle. 

"Stellar Cyber on OCI provides our joint customers with an industry-leading Open XDR solution to manage their cloud security posture and help protect their data."

This news comes after Stellar Cyber integrated its security platform a few years ago with Barracuda CloudGen Firewall, Barracuda Web Application Firewall, and Barracuda Total Email Protection.

The move brought enhanced visibility, automated incident correlation, threat hunting and remediation to managed security service provider (MSSP) customers and prospects, the company stated.

The Stellar Cyber platform incorporates the XDR Kill Chain and AI-driven correlation of detections and alerts into automatically generated incidents in a dashboard with visibility across the entire attack surface, so analysts know what and how to investigate, the company states.

In addition, Stellar Cyber's built-in multi-tenant features are designed to make it easier for Barracuda's MSSP partners to provide SOC-as-a-service offerings to their end-user clients.
