Our History

Founded on a mission to
transform security operations

Stellar Cyber was founded in 2015 by Aimei Wei
(Senior VP of Engineering) on a mission to
transform security operations.

Change the conversation from
analyzing data to correlating
incidents

Aimei knew from working at companies like Cisco and Nortel, there was a cybersecurity data overload problem. In every medium-to-large company’s or MSSP’s IT department: analysts have too many consoles to monitor, too many alerts to respond to, and too much manual data correlation to spot complex attacks. This situation left companies with an unenviable choice – spend a fortune on “good enough” security or risk costly attacks.

Cover the entire attack surface

She wanted to democratize cybersecurity solutions to eliminate that dilemma by bringing AI and machine learning to bear on the problem. She first invented a family of cybersecurity sensors suited for a variety of customer environments. Unlike most other cybersecurity sensors, these sensors index security metadata at ingestion, ensuring from the beginning that there is a means to normalize and enrich any data source to simplify making correlations.

Bring the right intelligence

This allows our platform’s AI engine to quickly spot anomalies across the kill chain. Stellar Cyber’s sensors deliver visibility across cloud, SaaS, applications, users, endpoints and network, and integration with all popular security tools ensures that no part of the security landscape is ignored. Stellar Cyber’s patented XDR Kill Chain™ loop and Incident Management dramatically reduce risk while dramatically reducing costs.

Retain investments

Finally, the solution couldn’t force companies to abandon their existing investments in security tools. Aimei used a modular, cloud native microservices-based architecture that integrates with all popular security tools so the platform can ingest their data as well as its own to ensure complete visibility with investment protection.
