Silicon Valley—October 24, 2018
SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aella Data, a leading innovator in AI-driven cybersecurity solutions and a pioneer in pervasive breach detection systems, and Elastic, the company behind Elasticsearch and Elastic Stack (formerly the ELK Stack), announced an expansion of their partnership that integrates Aella Data’s Starlight, its flagship Pervasive Breach Detection System (PBDS), with Elastic’s popular Elastic Stack. Now, customers benefit from Elastic’s visualization, alerting, reporting and graphing technology with boosted security provided by Aella Data’s advanced AI-driven breach detection solution.
Cybersecurity gets a boost with @AellaData and @elastic ‘s expanded partnership — provides customers with advanced AI-driven security solutions.
The expanded agreement builds on the existing OEM partnership, where Aella Data uses commercial Elastic technology in their own Starlight PBDS product. With the direct integration, Aella Data’s Starlight PBDS now works seamlessly with Elasticsearch, allowing native configuration as a data sink for Starlight’s output. Elastic customers will benefit from Starlight’s powerful machine learning, security detections, data reduction, and enrichment capabilities, while continuing to use existing Elastic installations for long-term data analysis. Starlight users can now simply select Elastic as the preferred data sink directly from within the user interface for seamless connectivity and operation.
“Elastic is seeing increased adoption in security analytics use cases,” said Gregory Tademoto, Vice President of Business Development at Elastic. “Leveraging Elastic Stack, Aella Data has delivered an impressive AI-driven cybersecurity solution. We are proud to work with Aella Data. It’s a great endorsement of Elastic’s technology leadership in security.”
Elastic is the most widely used collection of open source products for solving mission-critical use cases like search, logging and analytics. With Aella Data, Elastic customers have an off-the-shelf breach detection system that is tightly integrated, allowing them to benefit immediately from their investment in Elasticsearch without having to develop their own custom tools, detections, and scripts, while benefiting from Aella Data’s cybersecurity expertise.
“With Starlight deployed in front of Elasticsearch, users benefit from machine learning enhanced security detections and threat hunting capabilities added to an already powerful search platform. For example, users can take advantage of existing SIEM investments in Elastic, ingesting the enhanced and reduced security data directly from Starlight to their Elasticsearch,” said Paul Jespersen, Vice President of Business Development at Aella Data.
“We elected to partner with Elastic early on in our product development because Elasticsearch has taken real-time information discovery completely to the next level—the combination of its advanced search and analytics capabilities and its user-friendliness makes it the most powerful open source solution out there,” said John Peterson, Chief Product Officer, Aella Data. “We believe in Elastic; the team and the technology clearly differentiate in a highly competitive market. Elastic has given us a significant advantage, providing Starlight with scalable, lightning fast data processing, storage and retrieval capabilities not found in other AI cybersecurity solutions. Aella Data customers get the benefit of the commercial version of Elastic built-in with Starlight PBDS.”
