Elastic has announced the release of Limitless Extended Detection and Response (XDR). Limitless XDR unifies the capabilities of SIEM, analytics, and endpoint security. 

“Between today’s advanced attack techniques and complicated IT environments, it is more difficult than ever for organizations to stop threats before damage is done,” said Nate Fick, general manager of security at Elastic. “Adding to this challenge, security teams have to pivot between multiple tools to investigate and respond fully to attacks. By combining SIEM and endpoint security, Elastic Limitless XDR provides fast detection and response capabilities with cloud, user, endpoint, and network telemetry to simplify investigation and response on a single platform.”
