VerSprite, an Atlanta-based cybersecurity threat management consultant and service provider, and Stellar Cyber, the creator of Open XDR, announced that VerSprite has adopted Stellar Cyber’s Open XDR platform as the foundation of its managed security service offering. For each client in a variety of vertical industries, including healthcare, fintech, information services, and retail, VerSprite develops unique, contextual threat models. Since the Stellar Cyber platform has built-in multitenancy, connects with any EDR, and includes configurable playbooks that recognize and address each client’s security risks, it is perfect for VerSprite’s managed security service. 

Stephan Tallent, vice president for global service providers at Stellar Cyber said, “Each end customer’s environment is different, and it’s critical to understand the context and shape of evolving threats. VerSprite has a unique perspective on the threat landscape, and our Open XDR platform enables them to implement their vision in the SOC.” 

The Process for Attack Simulation and Threat Analysis (PASTA) methodology, which underpins VerSprite’s threat modelling procedure, was co-developed by Uceda Velez. Organizations as diverse as Microsoft and Carnegie Mellon University have endorsed PASTA. 

Tony UcedaVélez, CEO of VerSprite said, “The reason our clients come to us is that we provide an understanding of everything in their security environment, and we build an organizational threat model that’s contextual to their specific business. We looked at several different SOC platforms that could implement a secure environment based on our threat modeling, and Stellar Cyber’s platform stood head and shoulders above the rest.”
