Stellar Cyber has announced the integration of its security platform with Barracuda CloudGen Firewall, Barracuda Total Email Protection, and Barracuda Web Application Firewall, offering managed security service provider (MSSP) clients and prospects with improved visibility, cyber threat hunting, automated incident correlation, and remediation.

“Our customers know that Barracuda delivers best-of-class email, network, and web application security solutions. When it comes to defending against today’s sophisticated cyber threats like ransomware and data breaches, they are looking for full visibility and automation,” said Fleming Shi, CTO at Barracuda Networks.

“We already offer Barracuda SKOUT Managed XDR optimized for our MSP customers. This new integration with Stellar Cyber gives our enterprise customers a holistic view of their infrastructure and the capabilities to coordinate incident response to attacks in real time.”

The Stellar Cyber platform integrates the XDR Kill Chain and AI-driven correlation of detection techniques and warnings into automatically generated incidents on an incredibly simple dashboard with visibility all over the attack surface, so analysts know precisely what to look into and how to look into it.

Furthermore, the inbuilt multi-tenant functionalities of Stellar Cyber find things simpler for Barracuda’s MSSP partners to offer SOC-as-a-service to its end-user customers.

“The Stellar Cyber Open XDR platform brings additional value to existing Barracuda product investments by ingesting their logs, enriching the captured data, analyzing that data for threats, and then automatically remediating attacks through the firewall as well as other systems,” said Zeus Kerravala, principal analyst at ZK Research. “It’s great to see this level of integration to protect customers.”

“By integrating our Open XDR AI-powered cybersecurity platform with Barracuda’s popular solutions, we deliver a new level of visibility and SOC capabilities, such as correlated threat analysis, threat hunting, and automated remediation, to Barracuda customers,” said Paul Jespersen, Senior Vice President of Global Business Development at Stellar Cyber.

“Our purpose-built platform collects and ingests data from all existing security tools and presents a single dashboard that clearly identifies and prioritizes security threats, all the way from individual alerts to sophisticated incidents or attack stories, in a way that maximizes efficiency in SOC operations.”

Barracuda is focusing on strengthening its integrations with Open XDR systems such as Stellar Cyber. Clients of Barracuda will be able to more effectively block ransomware and stay ahead of attackers that use credential theft and account takeover in email security to stop further penetration.
