Malwarebytes and Stellar Cyber Partner to Investigate and Mitigate Cyber Threats
A new partnership between Malwarebytes, a leader in real-time cyber protection, and Stellar Cyber, a market-leading Open XDR platform that offers comprehensive, unified security without complexity, was just announced. The collaboration enables teams with little resources to create uniform security outcomes across all environments, including on-premises, cloud, and everything in between.
The collaboration occurs at a crucial juncture in the development of cybersecurity, as security products become more intricate and IT staff devote more time to maintaining security measures than to identifying and reducing cyberthreats. Only 46% of security operations decision makers are happy with their existing capacity to detect attacks, according to a 2020 report from Palo Alto Networks. “They point to wasted time chasing false leads, poorly integrated security tools, and a large learning curve for effectively using those tools,” according to the report.
“Every security team should be able to deliver continuous, consistent security regardless of their skills or experience”, “By tightly integrating Malwarebytes’ cutting-edge EDR technology with the Stellar Cyber Open XDR platform, IT teams are able to close the gaps between security controls that attackers exploit.”

The integration combines the Stellar Cyber Open XDR Platform, which ingests, normalises, and enriches security data from endpoints, networks, clouds, and logs into a single repository, with Malwarebytes’ EDR solution, which gathers detailed threat information for analysis and investigation. Critical endpoint and server data is gathered by Malwarebytes EDR and transmitted to Stellar Cyber for threat detection. Response actions are sent to Malwarebytes to remove the threat as soon as security analysts in Stellar Cyber have finished their investigation.
“Today’s IT and security teams spend more time sifting through data than eliminating actual threats. Organizations need real-time data sharing and visibility to enable decisive actions before attackers are successful”, “Stellar Cyber shares our mission to simplify cybersecurity for resource-constrained organizations. Together we uniquely deliver an intelligent and automated solution that allows security teams to be more efficient, and organizations more productive and protected.”
