PAGO Selects Open XDR Security Platform of Stellar Cyber to Unify Standalone Tools and Speed up Detection and Response

PAGO | February 08, 2022

PAGO
PAGO, a South Korean MDR provider and value-added reseller, has embraced Stellar Cyber's Open XDR Platform to expand PAGO's security-as-a-service program for organizations across the country. Stellar Cyber is the leading security operations platform for MSSPs and the creator of Open XDR.

PAGO has thoroughly integrated stand-alone EDR, SIEM, UEBA, NTA, AD Security, TI Interworking, Cloud Security, and Sandbox products for its MDR service but found it nearly hard to correlate inputs from various tools to acquire a holistic view of its clients ' total security manually. PAGO is now automatically analyzing and connecting data from multiple devices to enable faster intrusion responses for its clients, thanks to the Stellar Cyber Open XDR Platform.

“We needed an MDR service system that processed multiple tools’ threat data with an integrated, AI-powered, Big Data system,” said Paul Kwon, CEO at PAGO. “The Stellar Cyber Open XDR platform is the first we’ve seen that unifies and correlates data from our various security tools and responds automatically to significantly improve our customers’ security while enabling us to manage our in-house resources better.”

The Open XDR Platform from Stellar Cyber combines data from all existing security tools (as well as data from its sensors), analyses it for anomalies, displays and prioritizes contextual security incidents in an intuitive dashboard, and responds automatically through those tools to provide near-real-time protection. As a result, MDR security specialists like PAGO can use Stellar Cyber's platform to monitor customers' comprehensive security profiles and take swift action when risks are detected from a single console.

“MDRs and MSSPs love our platform because it allows them to leverage investments in existing security tools and deliver high-margin detection and response services without scaling analyst staffs,”  “We built AI and Big Data into our platform from the beginning to enable this scalability through automation.”

Brian Stoner, VP of the MSSP business unit at Stellar Cyber
