1. Unifying SIEM And Endpoint Security – PSW #640
Elastic recently released Elastic Security 7.6 - the culmination of months of work by the security team and a monumental leap forward toward delivering a unified threat protection and security analytics solution. At the core of our solution is Elasticsearch, powering a new SIEM detection engine that automates threat detection and comes with 100+ prebuilt rules aligned with the MITRE ATT&CK framework to identify known and unknown threats. We would like to talk about these milestone features in the context of bringing SIEM and endpoint security together in a single UI.
