Malwarebytes | November 28, 2022
Malwarebytes, a global leader in real-time cyber protection, today announced a new partnership with Stellar Cyber, an industry-leading Open XDR platform that delivers comprehensive, unified security without complexity. The partnership helps resource-constrained teams produce consistent security outcomes across all environments; on-premises, cloud and anything in between.
The partnership comes at a critical time in the cybersecurity landscape, as security products become more complex and IT teams spend more time maintaining their security controls, instead of investigating and mitigating cyber threats. According to a 2020 report from Palo Alto Networks, only 46 percent of security operations decision makers are satisfied with their current ability to detect threats. "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."
Andrew Homer, Vice-President of Technology Alliances at Stellar Cyber
The integration pairs Malwarebytes' EDR solution–which collects detailed threat information for analysis and investigation–with the Stellar Cyber Open XDR Platform that ingests, normalizes, and enriches security data, including endpoints, network, cloud and logs into a single repository. Malwarebytes EDR collects critical endpoint and server data and sends it to Stellar Cyber, which analyzes the data to identify potential threats. As security analysts complete investigation in Stellar Cyber, response actions are sent to Malwarebytes to eliminate the threat.
"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," said Brian Thomas, Malwarebytes Vice President of Worldwide MSP and Channel programs. "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."
About Stellar Cyber
Stellar Cyber Open XDR platform delivers comprehensive, unified security without complexity, empowering lean security teams of any skill to successfully secure their environments. With Stellar Cyber, organizations reduce risk with early and precise identiﬁcation and remediation of threats while slashing costs, retaining investments in existing tools, and improving analyst productivity, delivering an 8X improvement in MTTD and a 20X improvement in MTTR. The company is based in Silicon Valley.
Malwarebytes believes that when people and organizations are free from threats, they are free to thrive. Founded in 2008, Malwarebytes CEO Marcin Kleczynski had one mission: to rid the world of malware. Today, that mission has expanded to provide cyberprotection for every one. Malwarebytes provides consumers and organizations with device protection, privacy, and prevention through effective, intuitive, and inclusive solutions in the home, on-the-go, at work, or on campus.

Absolute | December 01, 2022
Absolute Software™ , the only provider of self-healing, intelligent security solutions, today announced new product innovations, empowering customers with deeper visibility and intelligence, expanded software integrations, and a refreshed user experience through its latest updates to Absolute Secure Endpoint and Absolute Secure Access.
These product releases continue the company’s investment in bringing together the combined power of Absolute Secure Endpoint and Absolute Secure Access with our unique, firmware-embedded self-healing capability, enabling customers to achieve truly resilient Zero Trust environments and deliver an optimal user experience. This announcement builds on the launch of Absolute ZTNA – the industry’s first self-healing Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) solution – and Absolute Insights™ for Endpoints and Network, providing unparalleled intelligence into device, application, and network performance.
Embedded in more than 600 million devices, Absolute is the only intelligent security solutions provider capable of delivering visibility, control, and resiliency across endpoints, applications, and network connections. The Absolute Platform enables IT and security teams to ensure their endpoints remain compliant and mission-critical applications remain operational, and empowers them to transition from traditional VPNs to a resilient Zero Trust approach without hindering security or user productivity.
A recent 451 Research report validates Absolute’s differentiated platform approach and capabilities, saying: Too often, organizations don’t fully consider the resilience of the deployed zero-trust environment, and network access and device security are handled independently. It’s a situation that complicates security operations and one that can impact employee productivity.
“Our common platform addresses a wide range of market needs, as we have the unique ability to apply self-healing capabilities to devices, applications, and network access. “Organizations are acknowledging that they need resilience-focused Zero Trust approaches, capable of integrating endpoint and access assessments at every step. By providing the critical components needed to achieve that resiliency - deep visibility, intelligence, and firmware-embedded Persistence - we are enabling them to not only protect devices, data, and users but also ensure critical controls are operating at maximum efficacy.”
John Herrema, EVP of Products and Strategy at Absolute
New capabilities available to Absolute Secure Endpoint customers in the latest product release include:
Public API Expansion: The latest Absolute Secure Endpoint release adds new Public APIs to our existing library, allowing customers and partners to integrate our device actions into their existing workflows - significantly improving the efficiency of their existing workflows and enhancing automation capabilities.
Absolute Connector for ServiceNow™: The Absolute Connector for ServiceNow enables joint customers to access Absolute’s comprehensive asset intelligence and single source of truth within their ServiceNow platform environment – enabling them to efficiently respond to service requests, supplement their ServiceNow workflows, and rapidly demonstrate compliance.
Expanded Application Resilience™ Catalog: The Absolute Application Resilience catalog now includes support for more than 60 critical security applications that IT and security administrators can self-heal across their endpoints. Recent additions include WinMagic® MagicEndpoint™, Dell™ Trusted Device, Deep Instinct™, Norton 360™, OPSWAT™, UNOWHY™, Aranda Software™, and Pixart® MDM.
The company also announced upcoming server and client enhancements to Absolute Secure Access, including:
New Look and Feel: The names, status icons, fonts, and colors have been updated to reflect new product names and refreshed corporate brand; the core functionality and upgrade experience remain smooth and easy.
SaaS Enhancements: The SaaS offering adds native NAT capabilities and enhanced alerting.
Enhanced 5G Telemetry and Detection: Insights for Network dashboards that display cellular coverage, signal quality, and usage now include the 5G mid-band spectrum, and reflect improved 5G sensitivity.
Deeper Visibility: The Secure Access/webService API has been enhanced, offering programmatic access to key pool performance metrics, including status information for our Active/Active server infrastructure.
Faster NAC Checks: NAC capabilities are optimized, significantly reducing the time it takes for the VPN to connect and begin tunneling traffic.
Android Client Enhancements: Collecting network telemetry on Android devices can now be done with the screen off to improve battery life, ensuring that administrators have actionable device and network information even if a device is in sleep mode. The Android cryptographic libraries providing FIPS 140-2 cryptography are also updated.
The features included in the latest Absolute Secure Endpoint release are available now.
