Pioneering Higher Education Cybersecurity Operations Center
Recognized for Innovative Use of the Elastic Stack to Detect and Analyze
Threats

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. & AMSTERDAM (BUSINESS WIRE) Elastic N.V. (NYSE: ESTC), the company behind Elasticsearch and the

Elastic Stack, is pleased to recognize its customer, OmniSOC, has been

honored with a 2019 CSO50 Award from IDG’s CSO. This prestigious honor

is bestowed upon a select group of organizations that have demonstrated

that their security initiatives have created outstanding business value

and thought leadership.

Based at Indiana University, OmniSOC is the first higher education joint

cybersecurity operations center that brings together expertise and

resources from its founding five universities to reduce the time from

first awareness of a cybersecurity threat to mitigation. OmniSOC uses

the Elastic Stack as its security analytics platform, utilizing

Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, Logstash, and critical features like

security, alerting, and machine learning. The Elastic Stack ingests,

correlates, and analyzes vast quantities of information from thousands

of systems across all of its member institutions in order to detect

security breaches and cybersecurity threats. OmniSOC security engineers

then provide rapid, actionable intelligence back to its members so that

they can mitigate risks, close security gaps, and prevent future attacks.

“OmniSOC’s innovative use of the Elastic Stack to proactively hunt down

threats and malicious activity is a pioneering effort that will serve as

a model for security in higher education and beyond,” said Shay Banon,

founder and chief executive officer at Elastic. “We congratulate the

OmniSOC team for this well-deserved recognition from CSO.”

“Higher education faces a unique set of cybersecurity

challenges―securing hundreds of thousands of devices and tens of

thousands of students and faculty members in an economically efficient

way. The Elastic Stack gives us extremely fast access to the data we

need to protect our member universities,” said Tom Davis, OmniSOC

founding executive director and chief information security officer.

“We’re honored to be recognized by CSO for this innovative joint

cybersecurity initiative.”

“Amid the seemingly constant stream of news-making security breaches,

vulnerabilities introduced by new technologies and increased attention

from company boards, today’s security leaders have their plates more

than full,” said Amy Bennett, executive editor of CSO. “Our annual CSO50

awards shine a light on projects that enhance an organization’s security

posture and also deliver measurable ROI. We are pleased to give them the

recognition they deserve.”
