Elastic (the company known for the Elasticsearch open source text search and analytics engine and the Elastic Stack data analysis and visualition toolset) will now acquire Endgame.
Endgame is a security company focused on endpoint prevention, detection and response.
Elastic wants to add Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) to its stack, so Endgame is a logical enough purchase.
Shay Banon, CEO and Founder of Elastic says he’s excited about the chance to combine the two firms’ competencies. CEO of Endgame Nate Fick thinks that it’s a good idea too. CTO of Endgame Jamie Butler insists that both organisations share a commitment to openness, transparency, and user enablement.
All three men added: customers, customers, customers etc…
As the creators of the Elastic Stack (Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, and Logstash), Elastic builds self-managed and SaaS offerings that claim to make data usable in real time at scale for use cases like application search, site search, enterprise search, logging, APM, metrics, security and business analytics.
Endgame makes endpoint protection using machine learning technology that is supposedly capable of stopping everything from ransomware, to phishing and targeted attacks.
The company says its USP lies in its hybrid architecture that offers both cloud administration and data localisation that meets industry, regulatory and global compliance requirements.
The combined company names ElasticEnd, EndElastic, RobustRubber are not being considered at the time of writing.
