Stellar Cyber Emerges from Stealth Mode Ahead of RSA® Conference 2018, Unveils Industry’s First AI-Driven Data Driven Cyber Security System

Read release on Business Wire

Closed initial enterprise, channel, and MSSP deals

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Stellar Cyber, a leading innovator in AI-driven cybersecurity solutions, officially exits stealth mode today with the launch of Starlight™ Data Driven Cyber Security System (PBDS), the industry’s first AI-driven pervasively deployable solution. Founded by security industry veterans, Stellar Cyber’s Starlight PBDS is the only system that can be deployed pervasively across all network infrastructures. It unifies collected data and conducts advanced analysis to deliver high-fidelity, actionable alerts that reduce detection time from months to mere minutes, and alert volume from thousands to the critical few. The company formally launches at RSA Conference 2018 with a growing list of key customers and partners.

Stellar Cyber’s launch and its disruptive technology is timely in a world gone awry with increasingly costly and far-reaching cyberattacks.

Stellar Cyber’s launch and its disruptive technology is timely in a world gone awry with increasingly costly and far-reaching cyberattacks. “Sophisticated hackers hide in blind spots and unleash damaging attacks while companies work overtime to catch up, but fall short, due mainly to reliance on traditional security solutions,” said Richard Stiennon, Chief Research Analyst at IT-Harvest and renowned IT security veteran and analyst.

While the rise of big data and AI are helping companies detect sophisticated attacks, current solutions are still failing to catch breaches, even as their costs and complexity increase. With Starlight, Stellar Cyber introduces a new type of breach detection system that addresses deployment and operational complexity and costs while dramatically reducing detection time and effort. Starlight is built on a patent-pending Distributed Security Intelligence™ architecture and uses advanced machine learning to cut through the noise, providing high-fidelity alerts that enable fast and effective action. Starlight is easily integrated and highly complementary with existing perimeter defense solutions, SIEMs, and other traditional cybersecurity solutions making it easy for enterprises, Managed Security Services Providers (MSSPs), and VARs to deliver a complete pervasive breach detection solution. As evidence of its unique architecture and ability to scale in all dimensions and deploy anywhere, Stellar Cyber solutions are being used today in a variety of environments and applications, including container visibility, autonomous vehicle security, data centers supporting tens of thousands of servers, and MSSPs supporting mid-sized enterprise customers.

“Stellar Cyber is a perfect breach detection platform for MSSPs due to its multi-tenancy and sophisticated AI that reduces the number of alerts our SOC has to deal with,” said Douglas Mannella, Vice President of Business Development at CyFlare, an Stellar Cyber MSSP partner.

Data Breaches on the Rise, Limitations of Current Breach Detection Approaches

2017 was dubbed “The Year of the Data Breach” (source: Bloomberg) and there is no indication that 2018 will be any different. Indeed, the avalanche of cybersecurity breaches demonstrates that existing approaches are still insufficient. These approaches either throw away key data to keep systems manageable or require deployment of costly and invasive monitoring systems. The results are high costs and/or a continued overload of low-fidelity alerts that need to be investigated – but are all too often ignored.

“Headline-grabbing, massive breaches like Equifax and Home Depot are due not just to the rise of cybercriminals but also to the increasing complexity of network and hybrid cloud environments. Legacy IDS, firewalls, and network security solutions alone can no longer meet the needs of the modern enterprise,” said Changming Liu, CEO of Stellar Cyber. “We founded Stellar Cyber to help companies address the entire cybersecurity kill chain with a single technology that can be deployed across all environments. By applying deep intelligence through advanced AI with pervasive data, we detect sophisticated attacks other systems miss.”

With Starlight, organizations can massively scale security detection across all network infrastructures—including containers, VMs, private clouds, public clouds, hybrid clouds, and bare metal—with no blind spots, performance problems, or exorbitant costs. Starlight intelligently deploys multiple types of machine learning in a unique approach called Multi-ML™, with an integrated cascade of algorithms used across the syste
