SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Stellar Cyber, the leading security operations platform for MSSPs and innovator of Open XDR, is announcing that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named it as a Finalist for the 2021 CRN Tech Innovator Awards. Stellar Cyber is being recognized for its Open XDR Platform in the Managed Detection and Response category.
This annual award program showcases innovative vendors in the IT channel across 47 different technology categories, in key areas ranging from cloud to storage to networking to security. To determine the winners, a panel of CRN editors reviewed hundreds of vendor products using multiple criteria, including key capabilities, uniqueness, technological ingenuity and ability to address customer and partner needs.
Stellar Cyber created the Open XDR category because co-founder Aimei Wei saw the inadequacy of using a dozen or more siloed tools and manually correlating their data for cybersecurity detection and response. The company’s Open XDR platform delivers comprehensive security by correlating and analyzing data from all existing security tools and its own sensors to deliver a 360-degree view of incidents throughout the security infrastructure – an approach that typically improves detection speed by 8X and respond speed by 20X.
“CRN’s annual Tech Innovator Awards acknowledge technology vendors that display their ongoing commitment to empowering and enabling end users, while also promoting continuous business growth for solution providers, with cutting-edge, purpose-built products and services,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “I’d like to personally congratulate each and every one of this year’s CRN Tech Innovator Award finalists and winners. We are proud to recognize these best-in-class vendors that are driving transformation and innovation in the IT space.”
“MDRs and MSSPs are adopting our Open XDR Platform because it enables new services that bring high-margin revenues while its automation reduces the need to add more security analysts,” said Steve Garrison, VP of Marketing at Stellar Cyber. “We continually drive new innovation in the XDR space and are proud to have been named a finalist for a Tech Innovator award.”
The Tech Innovator Awards was featured in the December issue of CRN and can be viewed online at crn.com/techinnovators.
