Stairwell Enables Enterprises to Outsmart Attackers

Stairwell, a company that empowers security teams to outsmart cyber attackers, has entered into a strategic partnership with Cyderes, a company that provides managed cybersecurity; becoming the first managed security services provider (MSSP) of Stairwell’s flagship solution, the Inception platform. The Inception expands the capabilities of Cyderes’ managed detection and response solutions for the modern enterprise.

Inception enables security teams to identify suspicious artifacts and malware that have evaded point-in-time security controls. The platform analyzes an organization’s environment against the latest threat intelligence from multiple sources and exposes threats that would have remained undetected. When malware-led attacks are identified, Inception streamlines the triage, investigation and remediation processes, and it enables the creation of tailored defenses attackers cannot test against.

“It’s extremely satisfying to bring the Inception platform’s recursive contextual threat analysis, detection, and response capabilities to the Cyderes solution stack,” said Mike Wiacek, Stairwell CEO and founder. “This combination delivers expanded visibility into malicious activity that traditional point-in-time defenses miss and empowers our joint customers with tailor-made defenses that attackers can’t evade. Not only are our solutions better together, we also have parallel visions about how cybersecurity must change to outsmart sophisticated attackers and a driving commitment to achieving that goal.”

Partnering with Stairwell allows Cyderes to optimize its proprietary, cloud-first technology platform, CNAP (Cloud Native Analytics Platform). CNAP is delivered as a security as a service (SECaaS) offering to eliminate the overhead of data management, optimize analyst productivity, and improve effectiveness in analytics, overcoming hurdles of traditional security information and event management (SIEM) technology.

With Inception directly integrated, security operations teams using CNAP are further enabled to outsmart attackers.
