These people move fast. Completed acquisition last week, Oct 8. Launching Elastic Endpoint Security today, livestream ongoing and impressive.
Integrates Endpoint security and automated threat hunting and remediation into Elastic SEIM and the Elastic Stack. Integrating into the data sets that also provide monitoring, logs, and APM. Customizable dashboard with Canvas.
Eliminating per endpoint pricing structure with data set pricing structure.
The end of endpoint pricing
In addition to combining the world’s first free and open SIEM with the best endpoint protection technology, Elastic is eliminating per-endpoint pricing.
“Why should users need to count the number of devices they need to protect? Or choose how many days of threat intelligence data they can afford to retain?” added Banon. “We want organizations to have the best protection, use it everywhere, and not be penalized with per-endpoint pricing.”
Elastic customers pay for resource capacity for any solution they use — Elastic Logs, APM, SIEM, App Search, Site Search, Enterprise Search, and now Endpoint Security — with a consistent and transparent pricing framework. This ensures organizations can capture maximum value from their data. With Elastic Endpoint Security, customers get full protection for as many endpoints as they need, and full data collection and shipping without having to compromise.
An interesting development in the space. Endgame is a very capable product achieving very high ratings in the endpoint space, if not so much the reach that other products have achieved. With this converging with the other Elastic use cases under a single pane, I think this could prove a very powerful platform for Elastic’s SaaS roadmap. Tremendous value from a single platform.
A year earlier than what I was originally thinking this would hit the market as an integrated product.
