We’re pleased to announce our newest technical partnership with leading SIEM and observability platform provider, Elastic. By combining together EndaceProbe™ always-on Hybrid Cloud packet capture, Elastic™ Stack and Elastic™ Security, we’re providing the packet-level network visibility and detailed network metadata that Security and IT teams need when responding to security threats and network or application performance issues.
How Do We Work Together?
By combining Endace and Elastic Stack, organizations gain accurate, highly detailed visibility into both real-time and historical network activity. Security and IT analysts can search network metadata in Elastic, and quickly pivot to full packet data for forensic investigations when they need to. The result is faster, more accurate incident investigation and resolution. The combination of Elastic Stack and EndaceProbe gives cybersecurity and IT teams the ability to see exactly what’s happening on their network in real-time. EndaceProbes can record weeks or months of full packet capture across hybrid cloud networks to provide a complete and accurate record of all network activity. The detailed full packet capture data recorded by EndaceProbes is a perfect complement to the rich logs and metadata collected by Elastic Stack. When analysts need to go back-in-time to investigate any incident they have a complete record of that activity at their fingertips. Beyond this, the ability to pivot from anomalies or security alerts directly to forensic examination of packet-level data lets analysts see exactly what’s happening. They can quickly respond to incidents and dramatically mitigate threat risk to their organizations.
EndaceFlow and Elastic Stack
In addition, EndaceProbe appliances can host EndaceFlow™, which generates extremely high-fidelity NetFlow data at full line rate. This NetFlow data can be ingested by Elastic Stack to provide detailed metadata for monitoring the security and performance of the network and interrogating network activity. Pre-built integration between EndaceProbes and Elastic Stack enables streamlined investigation workflows. Analysts can click on alerts in the Elastic UI to go directly to the related full packet data recorded by EndaceProbe. Analysts can quickly view traffic right down to individual packet level to see precisely what occurred before, during and after any event, with absolute certainty.
