Endgame Now Runs On Elastic

August 1, 2019

The Marvel Cinematic Universe “ended” a few weeks ago with Avengers: Endgame, so all and any news with the keyword “endgame” were overshadowed by Disney’s superhero franchise. It goes without saying that Elasticsearch’s acquisition of digital security company Endgame went unnoticed, but you can read about here at Computer Weekly: “Robust For Your Pleasure: Elastic Acquires Endgame.”

Elastic is a popular, open source text and analytics engine and its parent company also invented the Elastic Stack data analysis and visualization toolset. Purchasing Endgame was a practical decision for Elasticsearch, because moving into security technology is the next logical step for a company that specializes in data search, analytics, and visualization. Endgame specializes in endpoint prevention, detection, and response. Elastic wants its Stack Exchange to be more secure, particularly Security Information and Even Management (SIEM).

Elastic founder and CEO Shay Banon, Endgame CEO Nate Flick, and Endgame CTO Jamie Butler are excited about their team up. While it might not be as epic as a Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers mashup, Elastic and Endgame are committing to transparency, user enablement, and openness as well as gaining more customers.

Elastic and Endgame offer their customers some of the best technology for data analytics, management, and security:

“As the creators of the Elastic Stack (Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, and Logstash), Elastic builds self-managed and SaaS offerings that claim to make data usable in real time at scale for use cases like application search, site search, enterprise search, logging, APM, metrics, security and business analytics. Endgame makes endpoint protection using machine learning technology that is supposedly capable of stopping everything from ransomware, to phishing and targeted attacks. The company says its USP lies in its hybrid architecture that offers both cloud administration and data localization that meets industry, regulatory and global compliance requirements.”

Together Elastic and Endgame will combine their powers for their customers’ benefit that could possibly deliver technology to rival even Shield or something Tony Stark could invent.
