OneLayer | November 14, 2022
OneLayer, a pioneer in securing private LTE/5G networks for enterprises, announced today that it has partnered with Druid Software, the leading global provider of private cellular network core software solutions for enterprise. OneLayer will be securing Druid Software's 5G private network domain, ultimately providing its clients, including system integrators, with a platform and the abilities they need to successfully deliver and support end-to-end cellular networks to the enterprise.
Private cellular networks provide organizations with connectivity on a completely different level, including increased reliability, a dedicated bandwidth with capacity and range, no lag time, and connectivity of IoT and OT devices across vast areas. As organizations increasingly adopt these networks, they must consider a critical element of successful network deployment, namely, integrating the cellular network with the enterprise's existing IT network. To successfully accomplish this integration, organizations must keep the network secured, including both visibility and segmentation. Druid Software, a core cellular network software company, and OneLayer's partnership now provide a solution that removes the security concerns for Druid's clients.
OneLayer is integrating its SaaS solution on Druid Software equipment, allowing for seamless security for any private LTE/5G network running on Druid Software's core. Its solution for securing private cellular networks will enable network security using a Zero Trust approach, asset management, cellular and IoT device fingerprinting, policy enforcement that allows network segmentation, and anomaly detection, amongst other capabilities, securing devices connected to Druid Software's core.
"We are excited to be working with Druid Software as a strategic partner. In addition to providing a security solution for Druid, we have also included Druid's core as a part of our new 5G Security Lab. "By providing a much-needed security solution for Druid we are giving users the confidence to invest in adopting an LTE/5G network that has the potential to take their business to the next level. We feel this first-hand through our own implementations and research"
Dave Mor, CEO and Co-founder of OneLayer
"By adding this security solution which brings further essential capabilities for network protection we are addressing a market need for our clients and ensuring them the best and safest 5G or 4G offering to date," said Tadhg Kenny, Senior Vice President for Partnerships at Druid. "Our clients rely on Druid for the quality of its Raemis core network. Now with OneLayer's additional levels of security, we will be providing an even more comprehensive product to serve their business needs"
OneLayer provides enterprise-grade security for private LTE/5G networks. Its platform and IoT security toolkit can be implemented in private cellular networks to provide better visibility, control and protection for organizations. The company was founded by world-class cybersecurity experts with a deep understanding of both cellular protocols and IoT security needs along with veterans from the IDF's 8200 and 81 intelligence units.

Stellar Cyber | December 20, 2022
Stellar Cyber, the innovator of Open XDR, today announced a new integration with Netskope, a global leader in secure access service edge (SASE). This powerful integration makes it easy for enterprise and MSSP users of the Stellar Cyber Open XDR platform to improve visibility of risks and threats by incorporating the rich user-centric data generated by Netskope in every investigation conducted by their security analysts.
Under this integration, Netskope maintains visibility and control across five lanes of user traffic, including web, managed SaaS, unmanaged SaaS, cloud service providers, and public-facing custom apps in one single-pass cloud architecture. At the same time, Stellar Cyber ingests, normalizes, and analyzes Netskope data and all other collected data to identify potential threats creating prioritized, investigation-ready incidents. As security analysts complete incident investigations, Stellar Cyber automatically initiates response actions to third-party products integrated into the solution, including Netskope.
“Making it easy for our customers that use Stellar Cyber to incorporate Netskope’s valuable user insights into their investigations is another way for us to bring them new levels of security visibility. “Making security analysts more productive means attacker dwell time decreases, reducing the risk of breach across our customer's environment.”
Andy Horwitz, VP of Business Development at Netskope
“Automatically incorporating Netskope’s rich user data into every investigation in the Stellar Cyber platform adds critical context that previously required significant manual effort, which should be especially important to customers with lean security teams focused on reducing the workload on their SOC analysts,” said Andrew Homer, VP, Technology Alliances at Stellar Cyber. “With this integration, we continue to deliver what our customers, and the market, expect.”
About Stellar Cyber
Stellar Cyber’s Open XDR platform delivers comprehensive, unified security without complexity, empowering lean security teams of any skill to secure their environments successfully.
