empow’s open-source module will enable millions of Elastic users to improve their security posture with attacker intent search capabilities
empow, whose intent-based security information and event management (SIEM) system enables companies to detect and respond automatically to attacks without the need for human-written rules, has released an open-source attacker intent search module for Elastic users.
This open-source contribution represents a significant expansion of partnership between empow and search company Elastic.
The module uses the empow classification plugin and configures the entire Elastic stack – including Logstash pipeline, Elastic DB, and Kibana UI – providing users the ability to efficiently uncover attacker intent, in seconds.
Kevin Keeney, Elastic’s Cyber Security Advocate, said, “The launch of empow’s open-source module enables millions of Elastic open-source users to significantly improve their security capabilities. Elastic’s DNA is all about commitment to the community, and by making their attacker intent platform available to all Elastic users, empow is demonstrating that its vision is aligned with Elastic’s and delivering on that vision.”
Empower security professionals
The empow open-source module enables fast search for attacker intent in the user’s IT data, empowering security analysts to conduct advanced investigations and root cause analysis.
Those who choose to advance to empow’s commercial i-SIEM, will also gain access to security analytics capabilities that automatically identify and prioritize known and unknown threats, as well as coordinate responses. In addition, they will receive a powerful SIEM solution that is already seamlessly enriched by the millions of participants in Elastic’s open-source community.
This ‘2 in 1’ solution integrates Elastic’s search capabilities and features, empow’s intent-based, “no rules” SIEM and a single point of contact for support for both.
Avi Chesla, empow Founder & CEO, commented, “We are already seeing positive reactions from customers to our partnership with Elastic. They see that together we provide a 360 solution to all their search and security needs, in a simple integrated way.”
