Elastic Recognized in Industry’s First Extended Detection and Response (XDR) Providers Evaluation by Independent Research Firm

Included Among the Most Significant Vendors in the XDR Market

Elastic (NYSE: ESTC) (“Elastic”), the company behind Elasticsearch and the Elastic Stack, today announced that it has been named a Contender by Forrester Research in the industry’s first and only evaluation of XDR, The Forrester New Wave™: Extended Detection and Response (XDR) Providers, Q4 2021.

Forrester’s evaluation of XDR providers precedes Elastic’s launch of the industry’s first free and open Limitless XDR to modernize security operations by unifying the capabilities of security information and event management (SIEM), security analytics, and endpoint security.

According to Forrester’s evaluation, “Elastic is a free and open SIEM that gives security teams the freedom and flexibility to deploy and fully customize the offering as they see fit. Customizable detection engineering with Elastic is a core strength for its simplicity.” The report also cites that, “The Elastic stack is infinitely adaptable, which best serves security teams that want complete control over detection engineering, deployment, and inputs.”

Elastic Limitless XDR is anchored in SIEM and enriched by a single agent for endpoint security to eliminate data silos, reduce alert fatigue, and arm practitioners to stop threats at cloud scale. Built into a single platform, Elastic Limitless XDR extends visibility across any environment to prevent, detect, and respond to threats and eliminate blind spots, everywhere.

  • “We’re excited to be recognized so early in our XDR journey at Elastic Security,” said Nate Fick, General Manager, Security at Elastic. “The evaluation took place on Elastic Security version 7.13—one release prior to our official launch of Limitless XDR. To have been recognized as a player in the XDR space even before launching our own official XDR offering, including the first general availability of our integrated endpoint security capabilities, in our opinion, speaks to the compounding value we have been providing security teams in this growing category.”
