When choosing a SaaS ELK provider, security should be one of your top concerns. You will be uploading huge amounts of business-critical data, some of which may be sensitive. Naturally, you don’t want anyone who isn’t part of your business to access this data... especially not your competitors! Here at Logit.io, we take the security of your data incredibly seriously. This is why our ELK stack service is designed ‘from the ground up’ to keep your data safe. In fact, we’ve compiled a list of the key reasons why your data is safe with us.
- We handle the tricky process of entering data into Elastic Search
When you use the Logit.io ELK solution to log data, we do all the hard work. We ensure that your data is entered into the stack ourselves so that you can start analysing it with Kibana immediately. But this doesn’t just make using the ELK stack easier for you... it also makes your data more secure! Here at Logit.io, we're ELK stack experts. We can ensure that your data is conveyed into the ELK stack in a secure manner, therefore reducing the risk that any of your data will ‘leak’ or become accessible to outsiders.
- We give each user a separate Elastic Search ‘instance’
By placing each user’s data in a completely separate ‘instance’, we can effectively segregate your data from other users’. That means that your data won’t accidentally show up in anyone else’s log and can never be accessed by anyone without access to your specific log.
- We keep up-to-date with the ELK stack
Elastic Search, Logstash and Kibana are constantly improving and being updated. Here at Logit.io, we always use the most up-to-date version of the ELK stack possible: this enables us to take advantage of any improvements to the security of the stack’s individual components as soon as those improvements are added.
- We keep a watchful eye on your data
Our team of ELK stack experts are dedicated to keeping your data secure and are constantly alert for any breaches of security or activity that may suggest someone else is accessing your data. When you choose Logit.io as your SaaS ELK Provider, you can rest assured that your data is being looked after by consummate professionals.
All ELK providers endeavour to allow you to use ELK stack fluidly and efficiently, but here at Logit.io, we also make sure that you can use it securely!
