The Elastic Security Solutions team is building our vision of what a SIEM should be. Over the past few years, the Elastic Stack has become a popular choice with security practitioners for protecting their systems and data from cyber threats. Bell Canada and Slack use Elastic for security analytics. Cisco Talos has Elasticsearch at the heart of their threat hunting program. OmniSOC, a shared cybersecurity operations center built by the Big Ten Academic Alliance, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory chose to use the Elastic as the core of their SIEM solutions. We recently launched Elastic SIEM, and we’ve got a ton of great ideas to help our security-focused users protect their data, applications, and network infrastructure.
