In this blog, I will walk you through the process of configuring both Filebeat and Zeek (formerly known as Bro), which will enable you to perform analytics on Zeek data using Elastic Security. The default configuration for Filebeat and its modules work for many environments; however, you may find a need to customize settings specific to your environment.

In the world of IT, availability can mean a lot of things. Your website is available if it is up, responding in a timely manner, sending the correct headers, and serving a valid certificate. Your network is available if the correct hosts are online, responding to ICMP pings, and responding to TCP requests on specific ports. Your API endpoint is available if it returns the correct values when sent specific requests.

Welcome to another blog in our series on cost management and optimisation in Elasticsearch Service. In previous installments, we looked at hot-warm architecture and index lifecycle management as ways of managing the costs associated with data retention and at managing replicas as a means of optimising the structure of your Elasticsearch Service deployment. Be sure to check out the other blogs in the series for additional tips to help you as you build out your deployment.

As well as being a search engine, Elasticsearch is also a powerful analytics engine. However, in order to take full advantage of the near real-time analytics capabilities of Elasticsearch, it is often useful to add structure to your data as it is ingested into Elasticsearch. The reasons for this are explained very well in our schema on write vs. schema on read blog post, and for the remainder of this blog series, when I talk about structuring data, I am referring to schema on write.

This post is a brief summary of a presentation I gave recently where I deploy Elastic App Search, show off the ease of setup, data indexing, and relevance tuning, and take look at a few of the many refined APIs. It’s also written up in a codelab with step-by-step instructions for building a movies search engine app using Python Flask. The app will work on desktop or mobile and is a fast, simple, and reliable way to query the information.

The issue of unsecured databases is growing. In 2019, 17 percent of all data breaches were caused by human error — twice as many as just a year before. And the IBM/Ponemon 2019 report found that the estimated probability of a company having repeated data breaches within two years grew by 31 percent between 2014 and 2019. Why is this happening?

The Logstash MaxMind filter enriches documents with GeoIP information from the open-source MaxMind database. But did you know that you can customize this filter to enrich documents with all kinds of other IP-related data? MaxMind uses its own database, which enables very fast searching based on IP address. Our experience is that this is the very best way to retrieve any type of IP-based information and store it upon ingestion without impacting performance.
