Organisation bear huge losses due to lack of visibility in their network activities across the infrastructure.

This unique hands on course will teach you to take control of enterprise wide logs, analyze them in real time using LOGSTASH and ELASTISEARCH frameworks. Learn to generate powerful visualization & data modeling tool KIBANA, which makes analysis of data and decision making smooth and easier.

Course being very suitable for managing Security Operation Center by building in house loganalysis + Attack Monitoring + Visualization tool, this course equally empowers security enthusiast, Server DevOps, and startups by rapidly creating an affordable Security Analytics Platform.
