BLOKWORX Selects Stellar Cyber Open XDR Platform to Bolster its Managed Security Offering

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.
