The Great Leap Forward: The Stellar Cyber Product Update March 2023 Edition
As the majority of the US gets set to “leap forward” this weekend, moving the clocks one hour ahead in the wee hours of Sunday morning, I thought now would be a good time to reflect on how we have been spending our time over here in Stellar Cyber world since our last product update. For all those users, check out the release notes in the help section of the dashboard, where you can see all the new capabilities and improvements. Since you might be reading this while you enjoy a cup of coffee during your morning train commute, let me recap what you will see in our latest release, version 4.3.5.
When it comes to integrations, we tend to add them in bunches, and 4.3.5 is no expectation. In this version, we added the following:
- Ten new connectors for API integrations (Google Cloud Audit Logging, VMWare Workspace ONE, Jamf Protect, Webroot, and Cato Networks, to name a few)
- EDR alert integrations for Cynet, Bitdefender, and Trellix (FireEye HX)
- 32 new parsers for log integrations
To talk in technical terms, we added a ton of new data integration points in 4.3.5. Check out the release notes for all the details.
Crazy about Connectors
If you haven’t figured it out, we love connecting with new products; you might say it’s in our DNA. But just like making a new connection on LinkedIn or Facebook, that is only the beginning. Over time you want to get to know your connections, where they went to school, what they like and dislike, and what groups they belong to; you get the picture. So while our product integrations don’t leave exciting lives, you must get to know them. So to that end, we added a new per-connector details page that gives you better visibility into the configuration of the connection.
You can run, but you cannot hide.
As in each new version, we’ve improved our threat detection and machine learning to combat new and evolving attacks. Our changes include introducing new alert types, integrating third-party alerts, and refining existing alert types, such as the impossible travel anomaly (one of my favorites). You can find the complete list of changes in the release notes.
Is that a New Stellar Cyber Website and Logo?
Well, now that you mention it, we introduced a new (hopefully improved) www.stellarcyber.ai website and logo. This new website aims to make finding the information you need easier to find and more tailored to your needs. You will also notice the addition of new knowledge we never published before, such as a whole new section dedicated to the great enablement, support, and success services we provide to all our customers free of charge. In addition, some other goodies will hit the website in the coming months, so keep an eye out.
The Crew is Hitting the Road
The Stellar Cyber crew will be hitting the road for RSAC and BlackHat in the next few months, so keep an eye out for our booth and drop by to see what we have up our sleeves.
Remember to move that clock forward, so you don’t miss your flight or tee time this weekend.
