Rolling your own Detections as Code with Elastic Security

From its beginning, the Elastic detection-rules repo not only contained Elastic’s prebuilt detection rules, but also additional tooling for detection rule management — like a suite of tests, CLI commands, and automation scripts used by the Elastic Threat Research and Detection Engineering (TRaDE) team.

Elastic integrates Anthropic's Claude 3 models to enhance AI-driven security analytics

For security analysts navigating an increasingly complex threat landscape, the ability to quickly identify and respond to attacks is critical. Security information and event management (SIEM) tools have been integral to helping security teams quickly respond to attacks. Now, in the era of generative AI, Elastic is changing the game by delivering AI-driven security analytics to replace SIEM and modernize the SOC.

Elastic and AWS deliver on AI-driven security analytics

Amazon Bedrock and Elastic’s Attack Discovery automate security analyst workflows As cyber threats grow increasingly sophisticated, the need for highly effective security measures becomes imperative. Traditional SIEMs aren’t equipped to address threats fast enough because they rely on too many manual and labor-intensive tasks. AI-driven security analytics from Elastic’s Search AI platform solves these challenges.

Elastic Security evolves into the first and only AI-driven security analytics solution

In our previous installation, we discussed the history of security information and event management (SIEM) solutions — from collection to organizational detections and finally to response and orchestration. Now, we are firmly in the SIEM 3.0 revolution and focused on applying generative AI to every applicable process in the security operations center with tremendous success.

Zero Trust requires unified data

It’s vital to have a common understanding and shared context for complex technical topics. The previously adopted perimeter model of security has become outdated and inadequate. Zero Trust (ZT) is the current security model being designed and deployed across the US federal government. It’s important to point out that ZT is not a security solution itself. Instead, it’s a security methodology and framework that assumes threats exist both inside and outside of an environment.

Tracing history: The generative AI revolution in SIEM

The cybersecurity domain mirrors the physical space, with the security operations center (SOC) acting as your digital police department. Cybersecurity analysts are like the police, working to deter cybercriminals from attempting attacks on their organization or stopping them in their tracks if they try it. When an attack occurs, incident responders, akin to digital detectives, piece together clues from many different sources to determine the order and details of events before building a remediation plan.

5 reasons why observability and security work well together

Site reliability engineers (SREs) and security analysts — despite having very different roles — share a lot of the same goals. They both employ proactive monitoring and incident response strategies to identify and address potential issues before they become service impacting. They also both prioritize organizational stability and resilience, aiming to minimize downtime and disruptions.

Implementing phishing-resistant MFA: Our data-driven approach

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is widely recognized as an important control to make our accounts more secure by providing protection beyond just passwords. When MFA is enabled, we tend to think our accounts are safe from unauthorized access — but what if we said it's time to rethink this belief?

NEW! Elastic Security 8.13: Manage benchmark rules and automated endpoint responses

Elastic Security 8.13 introduces a refined benchmark-rules experience, advanced endpoint response actions, and a suite of enhancements to help users continue to accelerate their security program. Some of the major features included in this release enable users to: Elastic Security 8.13 is available now on Elastic Cloud — the only hosted Elasticsearch offering to include all of the new features in this latest release.
