What is CxDR?

Cloud eXtended Detection & Response
represents the next-generation of
detection and response solution with real-
time attack visibility designed specifically
to address the threats and challenges in
the cloud.
A purpose-built security platform for Cloud security

The cloud has a larger attack surface, a more complex environment, and limited visibility by design. The cloud requires a purpose-built security platform.

CxDR represents the next-generation detection and response solution purpose-built in the cloud for the cloud, designed to address its unique challenges.

It brings together the best security capabilities from the otherwise silo'ed category of solutions; threat detection, threat analytics, and cloud security.

What does it take to be a CxDR?

Workload Observability

Continuous discovery and monitoring of multi-cloud workloads and their interactions with Cloud control plane, data plane and shift-left plane.

Threat Detection

Detection technology specialized to sniff out cloud native attacks that exploit cloud misconfigurations, ephemeral workloads, pipeline vulnerabilities and zero-days.

Signal Integration

Combine and contextualize signals from every Cloud telemetry and security tool deployed to surface stealthy attacks designed to evade detection from any single security tool

Confluera takes CxDR to the next level
with the power of real-time threat storyboarding

Real-time Cloud-native
Threat Storyboarding

Taking a fundamentally new approach designed for the cloud, Confluera builds threat storyboards in real-time enabling organizations to detect threats and take remediation actions before the attack results in damages

How do our customers use the Confluera CxDR platform?

Real-time Threat Detection
Confluera combines behavioral and ML-powered anomaly analysis to detect a broad spectrum of suspicious workload behaviors in real-time. Confluera’s Continuous Attack Graph technology continuously connects the dots to surface ‘real’ threats moving through workloads, thereby eliminating the noise of isolated signals.
Run-time Container Security
Confluera delivers real-time threat detection and observability for container environments by combining behavioral detections and anomaly analysis to detect a broad spectrum of container exploits in real-time. Confluera’s unique ability to storyboard lateral movements between hosts and containers allows faster interception of run-time threats navigating across container environments.

Multi-Source Threat Integration
Unlike other XDR platforms that only integrate with their portfolio solutions, Confluera follows the best-of-breed approach, integrating detections and events from your security tool of choice. The resulting threat storyboards enable high confidence investigations with 360-degree context.
Incident Response Automation
Confluera enables rapid incident response with auto-generated recommendations and surgical steps to mitigate attacks in their tracks. Confluera’s Continuous Attack Graph technology is designed to help you focus on the minimum and most effective set of remediation actions for any intercepted threat narrative.
Proactive Threat Hunting
Confluera combines a real-time petabyte-scale analytics platform with the patented Continuous Attack Graph technology to not only enable proactive searches for IOC events but to also significantly reduce their investigation time by delivering continuously connected narratives.
Observability and Security Insights
Confluera’s observability platform provides SecOps teams continuous visibility into key security indicators and anomalous patterns on your server workloads across user activity, runtime behavior, privileged behavior, lateral movements, and network activity.

The Motivation: Average attacker dwell time is 279 days

Modern cyberthreats are multi-staged
Every attacker knows that, as an outsider, they must look like an insider. Tracking these low and slow attacks is about all making sense of weak signals.

Point solutions create siloed visibility
Isolated observations from siloed products create a deluge of false positives and important weak signals get lost in the noise.

The overall threat context is missing
Analysts don’t have a big picture view that combines all security signals from different points in time and different parts of the infrastructure.
Post-facto manual analysis can’t keep up
Analysts spend their time manually piecing together a jigsaw puzzle that is rearranged daily and miss 44% of alerts generated


Enables Certainty

Correlation is based on proximity and locality of events. Stealthy attackers are able to exploit these limitations. A bottoms up exhaustive causal relationship building between all activities leads to deterministic stitching of attack steps regardless of time gap, where in the infrastructure they occur, and the source of risk observation.Causality delivers deterministic tracking of Cyber Kill Chain to uncover completely arbitrary infrastructure-wide attack sequences in real-time. Most importantly, causality solves a key challenge faced by cybersecurity today: the inability to build the attack story. It changes the paradigm from reactive investigations to proactive interception of attacks.

Confluera XDR

Changes Paradigm

There is always a cause and effect relationship between all events happening across an enterprise infrastructure. Confluera is the only solution that brings the ability to track events and stitch them as deterministic sequences via cause and effect. As risky observations (behavior and anomaly based detections) are applied to these event sequences, the attack story starts to unfold itself in real-time. It is this ability that allows continuous and real-time threat interception, which otherwise would be post-facto manual investigations at best. Skill and resource intensive efforts to identify and remediate threats after-the-fact are infeasible and cannot be scaled to meet the challenges of modern cyberthreats.
