Elastic Stack Wins 2019 Fortress Cyber Security Award

Editor’s Note — August 19, 2020: The Elastic SIEM solution mentioned in this post is now referred to as Elastic Security. The broader Elastic Security solution delivers SIEM, endpoint security, threat hunting, cloud monitoring, and more. If you're looking for more specific information on Elastic Security for SIEM use cases, visit our SIEM page.

We are proud to announce that the Elastic Stack has been honored with a 2019 Fortress Cyber Security Award in the Threat Detection category. The Fortress awards recognize companies and products that are leading the way in keeping organizations’ data, infrastructure, and people safe in the midst of a growing threat from cybercriminals.

Elastic Stack Cyber Security Award for Threat Detection

The Elastic Stack is known for its ability to reliably and securely take data from any source, in any format, and search, analyze, and visualize it in real time. And we’ve seen rapid adoption in the security space. The reason is simple — when security analysts can get answers to their questions in under a second, they can generate and test new hypotheses in rapid succession until they fully understand the situation and have the information to respond.

Slack has built a defensive program on Elastic to find malicious activity. OmniSOC uses Elastic to power the cybersecurity operations that protect thousands of devices and critical data across five Big 10 universities. And Sprint has drastically reduced fraud using Elastic. The Elastic Stack helps these and many other security teams minimize the time required to detect and respond to threats by enabling them to ingest and rapidly analyze their environmental data to spot suspicious behavior.

Elastic is designed for speed, so it indexes data as it’s ingested, shrinking time-to-information to seconds and making it easy to run ad hoc queries and real-time visualizations. In the past, this has required teams of engineers and days of work. With the Elastic Stack, a security practitioner can monitor and search massive data sets in real time, making threat detection more efficient and effective.

Our recent introduction of Elastic SIEM in version 7.2 of the Elastic Stack demonstrates our commitment to powering the effectiveness of security operations professionals. It provides an interactive workspace for security teams to triage events and perform initial investigations, right from Kibana. An ever-growing set of new ingestion options for network and host data and the release of the Elastic Common Schema make it easy to centrally analyze key security data. Custom dashboards enhance the proactive monitoring capabilities offered by the SIEM app while machine learning jobs and alerting rules enable automated threat detection.

We’re honored to be recognized by the industry for our leadership in the cybersecurity space, and we’re gratified that leading organizations around the world trust us to solve their thorniest security issues.
