To get started with your own Winlogbeat setup, install and configure these related products:

- Kibana for the UI.
- Logstash (optional) for parsing and enhancing the data.
See Get started with the Elastic Stack for more information about installing these products.
You can skip having to install Elasticsearch and Kibana by using our hosted Elasticsearch Service on Elastic Cloud. The Elasticsearch Service is available on AWS, GCP, and Azure. Try out the Elasticsearch Service for free.
After installing the Elastic Stack, read the following topics to learn how to install, configure, and run Winlogbeat. Upgrading to a new version of Winlogbeat? Start by reading the Beats upgrade documentation.
