As an MDR provider, Castra turned to Anomali to not only advance the effectiveness of its offerings, but also to further cement its status as an expert provider of best-of-breed solutions that respond to the modern attack landscape. “We leverage market-leading tools to give our company a competitive advantage and our 24/7 SOC a leg up on bad actors. With Anomali, we improve on both of these goals,” said Grant Leonard, Co-Founder, Castra.
To prevent and respond to growing numbers of malicious campaigns, Castra continually enhances its ability to validate and understand threats, detect them more quickly, and to reduce the number of false positives. “By adding intelligence, we achieve a high level of certainty that enhances prioritization of the most serious threats our customers face, while improving our mitigation decisions,” added Grant.

With ThreatStream, Castra broadens visibility over threats, gains immediate detection capabilities, creates more efficient threat hunts, and operationalizes intelligence across its client infrastructures for automated blocking and faster response.
