We are internal integrators. We are in the bigger group as of now, but other groups, our clients, are affiliates from our group. They are our internal clients. The solution is currently on-premises. I was mostly responsible for the SOC team, and I helped them create the detection rules for the production. I wanted to know how it could be implemented in different kinds of products, like Sentinel.

We use ELK Elasticsearch for storing application data logs.

Our main use case is to centralize all the logs from the infrastructure environment and the data center.

Elasticsearch is one of the NoSQL databases available. My application is a microservices application where the data gets published on a Kafka cube. It allows us to connect to Kafka and get this data in a document format very easily. I'm using Elasticsearch as my backend processing database, where I'm building and reporting using Kibana.

We are developing a SIEM application that is similar to QRadar, ArcSight, or Splunk. This application uses Elasticsearch as its search engine because we want to retrieve information fast. We are just using the basic search engine part of Elasticsearch. We have developed lots of things on top of Elasticsearch, such as security, correlation, reporting, etc.

I am using it to get some hands-on experience and learn the product by searching, building use cases, test cases, dashboards, and visualizations. With hands-on experience, you learn more about the product and how it works.

I'm involved in architecting and implementing Elasticsearch-based solutions, catering to various use cases including IIoT, cybersecurity, IT Ops, and general logging and monitoring. The intention of this article is not to compare AWS Elasticsearch with Elastic ELK Elasticsearch and at the end declare the winner. Elasticsearch by itself is one of the coolest and versatile Big Data stacks out there. If you are planning to use it in your organization or trying to evaluate if it is the right stack for your product/ solution, this article offers some insights from an architect's perspective.

I run the function to review the usage for the team and for the organization itself. We use this product internally and then some of our business relationships with the other businesses that we have, they get their data from our data. It's more for collaborative data reporting that we have with them.

We try to detect malicious files by the logs. The logs are all centralized including all our PCs, our callers, our servers, Linux, windows, Polaris names. We scan everything. Then we have pre-defined specific use cases that allow us to identify if there is an attack on the machine or indirectly by the endpoint. On top of that, we can check with users as we're not directly dealing with the configuration, so we can follow up on the alerts we receive. On top of that, we have the systems in place that allow us to detect if certain inexcusable items are on the system, such as malicious files. We can do this because we also retrieve the log files of the identifiers.

In terms of use case, we combine a lot of things with Elastic. It's two platforms, so with Elasticsearch, we're using the Beats, Kibana, and Suricata. It's a query engine and we use the information from our sensors. It gets ingested into that and we use the resources to get everything put on our dashboards. If something is detected, alerts come up right away and it's very, very accurate. The more ingest it receives, the better we can respond to threats. It's not just Elastic or Logstash, it's a combination of those and other tools that we would apply towards our threat detection and prevention. We have a partnership with ELK.

What we use this ELK (Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana) solution is mostly for keeping firewall logs and collecting traffic flow information.

In my project, Elasticsearch is used to query terms for search and to provide data boards for our project team.
