In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

1. Confluera is the first and only vendor to create a CXDR solution, establishing a new segment of the cybersecurity market.

2. Confluera is the only vendor to utilize continuous attack graph technology. By stitching together individual events into real-time threat storyboards as they unfold, Confluera gives organizations full visibility into any attack progressions.

3. Confluera’s CXDR platform can stitch together entire cyberattack sequences, in real-time, as attacks are progressing. The risk evaluation is done across the entire attacker sequence of events. This automated output greatly reduces alert ‘noise’ and fatigue and thus increases the capacity and efficiency of the security team.

Brief Overview

Founded in 2018, Confluera has created the industry’s first and only cloud extended detection and response (CxDR) solution, designed to protect cloud-native environments from modern cybersecurity threats.

Confluera’s CxDR solution brings together the best security capabilities from the otherwise silo-ed category of solutions; threat detection, threat analytics, and cloud security. The layered solution includes Confluera’s proven signal analytics from multiple sources such as APIs, third party intelligence, and Confluera’s patented real-time threat storyboarding capability.

Confluera CxDR provides several key features and capabilities needed to combat today’s modern threats including:

Real-time threat storyboarding – Threat storyboarding is often considered a post-breach exercise to piece together a series of events to make sense of how a breach was executed and what assets were compromised. Acting on this post-breach analysis is not sufficient. The Confluera team designed their threat storyboarding to be real-time so organizations can have enough time to stop the attack before it leads to damages.

Decrease in false positives – Today, security analysts investigate too many alerts, most of which are false positives. Confluera stitches together the entire cyberattack sequence of events, in real-time, as the attack is progressing. The risk evaluation is done across the entire attacker sequence of events. This automated output greatly reduces ‘noise’ and increases the capacity and efficiency of the security team.

Protection against cloud-native threats – The benefit of the cloud brings with it new security challenges. Cloud represents a far greater attack surface, with the very nature of the cloud limiting analyst visibility, often resulting in more severe consequences. Confluera is born in the cloud to address the unique challenges of the cloud.

Confluera CxDR reduces the industry average time to detect and mitigate advanced attacks from months down to hours while also reducing the need for personnel with highly specialized cybersecurity expertise.
