Endace collaborates with Elastic to accelerate cyber threat response

Endace announced a technical partnership with SIEM and observability platform provider Elastic.

The partnership brings together the EndaceProbe Scalable Hybrid Cloud Packet Capture, Elastic Stack and Elastic Security, and provides 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.

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 packet data captured by EndaceProbe is a perfect complement to the rich logs and metadata captured by 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.

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.

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.

“The combination of the Elastic Stack and EndaceProbe gives Cybersecurity and IT teams the ability to see exactly what’s happening on their network in real-time. And when they need to go back in time to investigate any incident they have a complete record of that activity at their fingertips,” said Cary Wright, Endace VP Product.

“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,” added Wright.
