Stellar Cyber, the innovator of Open XDR, announced today that a top 200 managed security service provider (MSSP), BLOKWORX, has added Stellar Cyber Open XDR Platform to its security stack to enhance context and increase the differentiation of its security offerings. Stellar Cyber’s Network Detection and Response (NDR) capabilities and unique ability to identify threats at the network layer played a pivotal role in BLOKWORX’s ultimate decision.
The Stellar Cyber Open XDR Platform enables MSSPs to produce consistent security outcomes with existing staff. In addition, Stellar Cyber complements security teams’ human expertise, making them more productive and efficient.
BLOKWORX is a leading MSSP delivering data-centric security services aimed at managed security providers (MSP) with limited in-house cybersecurity resources. BLOKWORX sets itself apart from other MSSPs with its extensive networking expertise. “Most MSSPs focus on the endpoint when it comes to threat detection, then broaden their efforts,” said Robert Boles, Founder & President of BLOKWORX. “While we can and do look at endpoints, together with Stellar Cyber, we take a more comprehensive approach, looking at all layers of the network, allowing us better to understand the real depth and breadth of a threat and more completely protect a client's network from cloud to edge to endpoint.”
We are delighted that BLOKWORX underscores how the Stellar Cyber Open XDR Platform accentuates the differentiation and value they offer their customers, said Jim O’Hara, Stellar Cyber Chief Revenue Officer. BLOKWORX is already a deeply valued partner, and we look forward to developing our relationship further.
BLOKWORX played a critical role in integrating Stellar Cyber and Deep Instinct. They invested significant cycles working with the dev teams from Stellar Cyber and Deep Instinct, ensuring the integration works as expected. The result is a resilient integration between the two products that protect enterprises globally. “BLOKWORX was an invaluable contributor to the integration work we completed with Deep Instinct,” said Andrew Homer, VP of Technology Alliances at Stellar Cyber. “When you see this type of dedication from a partner, you want to work harder to deliver the best possible outcomes, and that is what we did.”
“We will not bring anything into our stack that doesn’t pass our comprehensive vetting process, especially when a product claims to be multi-tenant. Stellar Cyber checked every box in our vetting process,” added Robert Boles.
Unlike other SecOps platforms requiring several multifaceted technical professionals to deploy, use, and maintain, the Stellar Cyber Open XDR Platform delivers NG-SIEM, NDR, UEBA, SOAR, and TIP capabilities in an efficient way that allows security analysts to focus on security operations. In addition, powered by deep learning AI and an “open” integration architecture, Stellar Cyber intelligently correlates alerts, logs, and telemetry data, providing security analysts with the holistic view of threats they need to mitigate them quickly.

Data Theorem, Inc., a leading provider of modern application security, today introduced an industry-first attack path analysis of APIs and software supply chain exploits to its Cloud-Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) called Cloud Secure. The new release includes machine learning (ML)-based hacker toolkits and improved visualizations that boost discovery of potential data breaches in first-party APIs and third-party software supply chain assets hosted in multi-cloud environments.
As a result of today’s launch, organizations can now leverage an advanced ML-based CNAPP solution to best secure their cloud-native apps and discover weaknesses which could lead to data breaches. Previously, organizations had to rely on cloud security posture management (CSPM) and agent-based cloud workload protection platforms (CWPP) that lack the ability to accurately detect attack surfaces such as first- and third-party APIs that lead to the critical path hackers utilize to successfully exploit vulnerabilities and extract sensitive data.
Data Theorem’s new release of Cloud Secure now delivers Cloud Hacker Toolkits powered by a new set of visualization features and ML enhancements for exploit prioritization, helping organizations focus on the most critical vulnerabilities that hackers can take advantage of for a cyberattack to extract data from cloud-native apps. In addition, Cloud Secure now offers ML-powered optimized Cloud Assets inventory with new visualizations for organizations to better understand the relationships between applications (mobile and web), APIs (first and third party), and the myriad of cloud resources. As a result, organizations for the first time can have an accurate inventory of their cloud-native and cloud-hosted applications, and visualize the growing attack surfaces including APIs they develop themselves and APIs that come from leveraging open-source software, third-party software development kits (SDKs), and public cloud services within their software supply chains.
As we have seen, machine learning, and particularly generative language learning model (LLM), offers a new set of innovations and creativity for both security practitioners and attackers, said Doug Dooley, Data Theorem COO. Data Theorem is pleased to offer the industry’s first CNAPP solution which leverages some of the more useful elements of machine learning combined with run-time analysis, observability, and active protection. Cloud Secure continues to lead the industry as the most application-centric CNAPP offering helping organizations uncover new attack vectors in cloud-native applications and APIs that ultimately prevent large-scale data breaches. ML-powered Hacker Tool Kits and Optimized Cloud Assets, in addition to Cloud Secure’s other advancements in this new release, uniquely protect organizations’ cloud applications in multi-cloud environments.
Cloud Secure now also offers a new UI design that improves the end-to-end CNAPP workflow for organizations with new dashboard, inventory, security testing, and cloud-native protection sections. For example, the Cloud-Native Protection visualization graph with Cloud Abuse highlights priority events, actors, and attack path analysis that uniquely helps organizations diagnose near real-time data breaches and attempts at exfiltration attacks. In addition, Cloud Secure’s Enhanced Compliance Summary section with status and on-demand reporting downloads automates the audit processes to help organizations prove compliance.
Cloud Secure, powered by Data Theorem’s award-winning Analyzer Engine, helps organizations secure their cloud-native applications and address regulatory compliance for cloud monitoring and reporting. It is the industry’s first solution delivering full-stack attack path analysis for cloud-native applications that starts at the client layer (mobile and web), protects the network layer (APIs), and extends down through the underlying infrastructure (cloud services). Its combination of attack path analysis and run-time active protections enables both offensive and defensive security capabilities to best prevent data breaches of cloud-native applications, embedded APIs, and serverless cloud functions.
Data Theorem’s broad AppSec portfolio protects organizations from data breaches with application security testing and protection for modern web frameworks, API-driven microservices and cloud resources. Its solutions are powered by its award-winning Analyzer Engine which leverages a new type of dynamic and runtime analysis that is fully integrated into the CI/CD process, and enables organizations to conduct continuous, automated security inspection and remediation. Data Theorem is one of the first vendors to provide a full stack application security analyzer that connects attack surfaces of applications starting at the client layers found in mobile and web, the network layers found in APIs, and the infrastructure layers found in cloud services.
