Over the last couple of years, major security vendors such as Microsoft, Check Point, Cisco, Trend Micro, McAfee, Rapid7 and Palo Alto Networks have begun extending their traditional endpoint, network and antivirus protection capabilities to support XDR. However, Gartner cautions that by 2023 at least 30% of endpoint detection and response (EDR) and SIEM vendors will claim to provide XDR despite lacking core XDR functionality. One point of contention is the extent to which these tools can collect data across multiple third-party tools, rather than requiring users to migrate existing security services to a single platform.
“We are not a rip-and-replace solution. Unlike these competitors, we will work with whatever you have in your current security stack in addition to our platform,” Blueshift’s chairman and CEO Brad Rowe told VentureBeat. “We work very hard to get data from as many sources as we can and use that data to detect and investigate anomalies in our customers’ environments.”
Blueshift Cybersecurity™, a burgeoning startup that delivers full-service XDR (Extended Detection & Response) protection to small and medium-sized businesses, today announced a $6.0 million seed funding round from leading investors, including WestWave Capital and CyberJunction.
