Stellar Cyber published Universal EDR an open, heterogeneous Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) system that optimizes and augments event and warning data from any single or combination of EDRs from any vendor.

Data from various EDRs is suitably analyzed using the Stellar Cyber Open XDR platform, resulting in cohesive, low-noise findings regardless of EDR source. As a result, high-fidelity detection of real-world threat activity is operationalized for quick and effective reaction.

Universal EDR protects the accessibility of the Stellar Cyber platform while integrating data from third-party EDRs or multiple EDRs as if they were incorporated directly into the platform. Companies can switch or use different EDRs at the same time, and Universal EDR will automatically calibrate the data for overall exact attack detection.

Senior Principal Analyst and ESG Fellow, Jon Oltsik said, “With this announcement, Stellar Cyber can enable enterprises and MSSPs to retain investments in and increase the value of any existing EDR tool within an XDR environment. Users can now enhance their favorite EDR tools with full integration into an XDR platform, combining their EDR data with telemetry from other security tools and obtaining greater visibility.”

Universal EDR from Stellar Cyber provides convenient EDR integration and data optimization without the need for manual integration, significantly reducing time to value. Simultaneously, Stellar Cyber enhances existing EDR security technologies, allowing SOC teams to act more swiftly on results from existing EDRs or supplementing that data with vital alert data from other essential systems.

VP of Product Management at Stellar Cyber, Sam Jones said, “Some XDR vendors can do one-way or even two-way integrations between their core platform and third-party EDR products, but that’s not really enough to ensure accurate detection and response – it requires careful study and treatment of EDR alert and event data with critical enrichment to evolve from simply alerting to truly informing. In addition, as environments change and evolve, a company may need more EDR integrations. With Universal EDR, our platform performs automated integration, customized data processing, and event correlation to deliver the best detections and faster responses regardless of which EDR product is being used.”

Founder and CTO at Stellar Cyber, Aimei Wei said, “For a company that doesn’t build an in-house EDR, we find ourselves at the leading edge of endpoint-based security research. This gives our customers full confidence that they can integrate their EDR of choice and get outstanding results through the Stellar Cyber Open XDR platform.”
