Elastic and AWS — Securing the cloud, together


Elastic is pleased to announce that we have recently achieved the AWS Security Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Competency Partner status with specialization in Threat and Detection Response (SIEM, SOAR, and XDR). This recognition highlights our commitment to providing you, our customers, with advanced security capabilities that can help you protect your sensitive data and applications in the cloud.

The AWS Security ISV Partner Competency is awarded to partners who have demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success in delivering security solutions on AWS. To achieve this status, Elastic had to undergo a rigorous validation process, including a technical audit of its security capabilities and a review of customer case studies.

Elastic's achievement of this status is a significant milestone. It showcases our dedication to delivering innovative security solutions to help you protect your cloud environments. By leveraging Elastic's solutions on AWS, you can benefit from the scalability and agility of the cloud while maintaining the highest levels of security and compliance.

What is Elastic Security?

Security teams must defend a rapidly evolving organization against increasingly sophisticated and numerous adversaries — despite finite resources, disjointed technologies, and the limitations of traditional security tools. Employing a solution engineered for tomorrow’s threat landscape is vital.

Elastic Security is built on the company's Elasticsearch technology, which enables fast and scalable search and analytics capabilities. It integrates seamlessly and compliments AWS services like AWS Security Hub, AWS Web Application Firewall (WAF), Amazon Inspector, AWS Network Firewall, AWS CloudTrail, Amazon Key Management Service (KMS), and Amazon GuardDuty to provide real-time threat detection and response capabilities.

Elastic Security unifies the capabilities of SIEM and security analytics, endpoint detection and response (EDR), and cloud security, helping your team protect, investigate, and respond to threats before damage is done. On an open platform built for the hybrid cloud — with an agent that stops ransomware and advanced threats alike — Elastic Security arms the SOC to reduce overall risk by 60%.* By fueling advanced analytics with years of data from across your attack surface, Elastic Security eliminates data silos, automates prevention and detection, and streamlines investigation and response.

With features like anomaly detection, machine learning-powered analytics, and threat intelligence feeds, Elastic Security can help AWS customers identify and respond to security incidents in real time.
