Stellar Cyber offers the Starlight Open-XDR platform. This tool ingests data from existing cybersecurity tools, aggregates and synthesizes it, and generates threat alerts. The Open-XDR platform operates through a single pane of glass and can automatically detects and resolve cyber attacks. Additionally, the company offers automated threat-hunting, network traffic analysis, and user behavior analytics. Also, it seeks to increase analyst productivity and leverage existing investments in firewalls, SIEM, and other solutions. 

The Series A round included existing vendors Valley Capital Partners, Big Basin Ventures, and Northern Light Venture Capital. Moreover, Susquehanna International Group joined as a new investor. The solution provider chose to extend the Series A funding round rather than open a new one to bring on new vendors more quickly, according to the press release.   

Changming Liu, CEO and co-founder of Stellar Cyber, offered his thoughts on the successful funding round. “Enterprises and MSPs are adopting Starlight because it slashes false positives and unifies all cybersecurity efforts under a single platform. We have had outstanding growth in the past year, and we’re grateful that this has been acknowledged by both our investors and our customers.”
