Stellar Cyber’s Open XDR Strengthens Security for Barracuda Users

Stellar Cyber, innovators of Open XDR and a next-gen security operations platform, has integrated its security platform with Barracuda CloudGen Firewall, Barracuda Web Application Firewall and Barracuda Total Email Protection bringing enhanced visibility, automated incident correlation, threat hunting and remediation to managed security service provider (MSSP) customers and prospects.

The Stellar Cyber platform incorporates the XDR Kill Chain and AI-driven correlation of detections and alerts into automatically generated incidents in an easy-to-use dashboard with visibility across the entire attack surface, so analysts know exactly what and how to investigate.

In addition, Stellar Cyber’s built-in multi-tenant features make it easier for Barracuda’s MSSP partners to provide SOC-as-a-service offerings to their end-user clients.

Using ransomware protection as an example, customer benefits of the integration include:

  • Barracuda Total Email Protection signals and alerts will be available in Stellar Cyber to provide visibility into phishing and brand-hijacking attacks designed to harvest credentials.
  • In an event where a phishing link is clicked, Barracuda CloudGen Firewall stops the traffic to the attacker’s site and flags the target for all other attempts.
  • Network and application infrastructure are bombarded with intrusion and access attempts, especially with stolen credentials. Provided with signals from Barracuda CloudGen Firewall and Barracuda Web Application Firewall, these attempts will be immediately flagged and prevented.

Barracuda is working on deeper and broader integrations with Open XDR platforms like Stellar Cyber. Barracuda customers will be able to stop ransomware more efficiently and get ahead of attackers using credential theft and account takeover in email security and prevent further penetration.
