In Elastic 8.0, Elastic Stack security is on by default for self-managed clusters. To get started, simply spin up Elasticsearch and Kibana, connect them using the new web UI, and they work together securely, out of the box.
Alerting in the Elastic Stack is generally available with the 7.11 release and adds better ways to manage alerts as well as a new integration with Microsoft Teams.
7.9 introduces a new architecture for Kibana, delivering instant page loads for faster navigation. Also in this release, Elastic Enterprise Search integration, a new security layer in Elastic Maps, and model snapshot management for machine learning.
Introducing the new alerting framework for Elastic Observability, Elastic Security, and the Elastic Stack
We’re excited to announce a new alerting framework that delivers a first-class alerting experience natively within the SIEM, Uptime, APM, and Metrics applications as part of the Kibana 7.7 release.
