Safetech event: Strengthen your security posture with Stellar Cyber, Cynet and STI CERT

Cyberattacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated and put critical data, system integrity, and an organization’s financial situation at risk on a daily basis. In April, Safetech Innovations, partner of Stellar Cyber and Cynet in Romania, organized a seminar dedicated to cyber defense with the help of Stellar Cyber Open XDR, Cynet AutoXDR and its proprietary services, STI CERT.

The Stellar Cyber Open XDR platform provides centralized security management through its advanced incident analysis, detection, and response features. Cynet offers a comprehensive set of tools to instantly monitor, detect and block attacks at the endpoint level, through advanced obfuscation, behavioral analysis and threat hunting techniques. The set of two systems is provided by Safetech as an integrated solution, which can be implemented, turnkey, at the locations of the beneficiaries or delivered as a service, within the Safetech Managed Detection and Response service packages.

In addition, through STI CERT, the first private Computer Emergency Response Team in Romania, Safetech offers organizations access to a team of over 25 security specialists, available 24/7/365, for complete services for monitoring, detection, analysis, remediation and reporting of cyber security incidents.

Benefits and functionalities of Stellar Cyber and Cynet platforms

Cătălin Gherghiceanu, Presales Manager at Safetech, opened the event with an analogy between cyber security and insurance. Insurance is more than 100 years old and offers a set of tried and tested best practices that can be an inspiration for cybersecurity, as both sectors share the notion of risk. Next, the Safetech representative presented the functionalities and benefits offered through the Cynet and Stellar Cyber platforms.

The presentation listed Cynet’s extensive functionalities for endpoint protection. Cynet was rated by MITRE ATT&CK as a top performer in 2023, achieving the maximum possible score for real-time threat detection, visibility and analysis.

The Safetech specialist also reviewed some of the benefits offered by Stellar Cyber: “The Stellar Cyber Open XDR platform is able to natively collect a large amount of information and easily integrate with various tools and log sources existing in the customer’s network, receiving data that is stored in a Data Lake. It can detect and correlate events, manage logs, use AI/ML (Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning) techniques to automate and compare many types of patterns, from existing attacks to Zero Day attacks. It can correlate all alerts in a case, so that the analysts in the Security Operations Center (SOC) can easily track what is happening with that alert. He has all the necessary evidence to then make investigations and apply an adequate response”, explained Cătălin Gherghiceanu.

Stellar Cyber – Cynet integrated security platform architecture

Călin Tămaș, Security Consultant in Safetech Innovations, proposed a more technical discussion. His presentation was focused on information about the Stellar Cyber architecture, Cynet’s EDR functionalities and the integration of the two solutions. Călin Tămaș explained which are the components that are part of the local infrastructure and the types of installation on cloud / on premises.

“The implementation we recommend to customers for Stellar Cyber is the hybrid one, meaning we use a Data Processor in the Safetech cloud, and from there we integrate the modular virtual network sensor, where we can bring both network traffic and relevant logs from the sources we want. (…) Installing Cynet is much simpler, involves a management server and a number of agents. This server can also be hosted on the MSSP (Managed Security Service Provider) platform that we manage, and in this way Cynet as a Service is offered. Cynet can also be installed on-premises, at the client. The installation of agents is done quickly, we can install up to hundreds of thousands of endpoints in just a few hours”, said Călin Tămaș.

More information about the Stellar Cyber – Cynet architecture is available in the video:

The event had a rich practical dimension. Iulia Gheorghiu, Cybersecurity Senior Advisor and Calin Tamas, Security Consultant in Safetech Innovations conducted a detailed demonstration in which a series of cyber attacks were simulated – network scanning and Remote code execution: brute force attack SMB – and the detection, investigation and reaction process of the STI CERT team was described, using the integrated solution Stellar Cyber – Cynet. Cyberattacks were also demonstrated at the endpoint level, which helped us better understand the potential of Cynet – ransomware attack and the presentation of process monitoring and deception functions.

SOC outsourcing via Safetech and STI CERT

Cătălin Gherghiceanu, Presales Manager at Safetech, drew the conclusions of the seminar, referring to the main differentiators of Safetech. He also provided a series of details regarding the SOC (Security Operations Center) outsourcing services offered by Safetech Innovations.

“Safetech differentiates itself through the certified and insured services it offers. Our center, STI CERT, is accredited by Trusted Introducer, and CERT specialists have various personal certifications (ISC, ISACA, EC-Council) in the field of cybersecurity. In addition, our services are covered by an insurance policy. We have non-stop availability, we have three shifts covering the entire period of a day, and as expertise we have level 1, 2 and 3 analysts. With the help of automation, efficiency is maximum. According to our statistics, we were able to investigate around 100 billion events per month, which the platforms presented today help us turn into only 12,000 security alerts per month. Through further investigation, with the same platforms, our analysts are able to focus on approx. 150 security incidents per month,” said Catalin Gherghiceanu.
