Netify Review

Elastic offers a security (SIEM) and log management platform which is suitable for companies looking for a robust security stack to compliment existing connectivity solutions. The platform is not a SASE and does not offer any network underlay or overlay. 

Elastic Cloud uses SaaS applications to deploy and manage Elastic services from the cloud. Available in SME and Enterprise offerings, as well as being deployable in Kubernetes. The solution is very scalable, allowing clients to modify solutions to suit their business needs. 

The solution does offer a free service tier, however most companies will require paid tiers for more complex feature requirements. Previous customer reviews suggest that log management features are strong, although Elastic support is known to be weaker than other vendors in the market - often available only via email.

Endpoint Protection

What is the Elastic Security Solution?

Elastic Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) is designed to prevent ransomware and malware attacks on endpoints such as macOS, Windows and Linux. It does this by host-based behaviour analytics and endpoint security, with corroboration to minimise the risk of false positives, with remote response action across distributed endpoints. 

The solution enhances SecOps visibility with dashboards, turnkey data collection and the ability to inspect hosts using Osquery for further context. 

The solution can be deployed in any environment, including hybrid networks and Faraday Cage when connecting to the cloud. Flexible licensing means no per-endpoint pricing, no high-stakes device count predictions and no artificial data caps.

Elastic SIEM

Elastic offer unified SIEM which includes threat detection and response capabilities across all IT environments. The solution handles data by pentabyte and includes direct access to years of archives stored in applications such as S3 in order to better understand current attacks. 

The solution uses a single unified agent to block ransomware and malware with uniform analysis from Elastic Common Schema. Behaviour-based rules automate the detection of suspicious activity whilst analysing threat behaviour. This will prioritise threats in alignment with the MITRE ATT&CK framework. Further anomaly detection, built by Machine Learning (ML) detects unknown threats. The solution can integrate with SOAR and ticketing workflow integrations.

The Elastic Security Stack (also known as the ELK Stack) offers:

  • Elasticsearch: a distributed JSON-based engine that can search, analyse and store data. 
  • Kibana: visualises data using waffle charts and heatmaps, with preconfigured dashboards for diverse data sources, live presentations and the ability to manage the solution from a single UI. 
  • Strong capability for integration with Beats and Logstash, amongst others.
