Dewmi R.

The product is very popular among many companies, therefore there is a big community who can share their knowledge, the search is very fast and the installation process and integration are very easy.

Keren K.

Flexibility and high performance are the most loved features for us. The fact that we are not using it very effectively is also a ramen of suggestions and guidance.

Cons
Can suffer from 5 V problems that are Velocity, Veracity, Value, Volume and Variety. Query is less flexible than SQL query.

Sanket K.

Syntax could really mess the intentions up. There is a difference between 'filter' and 'filters', 'term' and 'terms' filters and that's the beginning.

Mostly for developers, other people's would have a hard time to understand and work on it. Also the query is typical or hard to write in terms of SQL queries.

Elastic Cloud on Kubernetes for best scalability

Reviewed a month ago

Organizing chat data to be searchable and log management to proactively fix issues.

Pros

One of the best features I like is that Elastic built their own kubernetes operator to extend the k8s orchestration and make it easy to deploy, scale, change, secure and configure hot-warm infrastructures. Their operator saves a ton of time during configuration. I have deployed stacks on different k8s architectures like Azure Kubernetes Service, Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service and small on prem clusters...

Cons

Currently it is not recommended or supported for a PROD cluster to do its own self monitoring so you have to deploy a monitoring cluster. In cloud scenarios this adds costs and extra complexity so it will be great to have this feature supported.

Powerful stack for event collection, management and visualisation

Reviewed a month ago

A solid product with a rich feature set, if you get past the initial setup complexity.

Pros

Provides great features for log ingestion, normalisation and visualisation. Has a free open source tier which can be used to cover many use cases. Visualisation options are diverse and powerful. Solid community support in forums.

Cons

Initial setup can be tedious and is rather complex. The provided security ruleset tends to produce many false positives and requires fine tuning. Log ingestion options are not entirely covered by the web user interface.

This powerful tool allows you to take data from any source and format to search and analyze.

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

It is a super fast and efficient data extraction tool. Recommended for medium-sized projects. Handles large amounts of data, is scalable.

Cons

Usable from any device, however these must be state-of-the-art and offer great calculation speeds and ram storage.

Best for Website Monitoring, Event Management and Log Analysis.

Reviewed a month ago

This lightweight, yet powerful, modern SIEM is well-suited for the modern security operations center as it can handle a wide range of activities with ease. elastic Stack is a powerful and flexible SIEM with feature-rich out-of-the-box tools that make it easy to get the job.

Pros

We are using ELK Stack SIEM, a scalable aggregation engine that helps us find patterns in our data as well as provides a wide array of customizable analytics and reports. With Elastic Stack, we have a better understanding of flaws and security issues, particularly memory tier support that ensures the security of our data and networks.

Cons

It is very challenging and time-consuming to upgrade cluster node roles and data replication.
