Interview: Nate Fick, Elastic Security
Elastic Security update + Organizational cybersecurity
Earlier this month, Elastic announced a radical change to how endpoint protection is offered, doing away with per-endpoint pricing. We'd like to spend 5-10 mins talking about why, and the remainder of the show talking about a topic Nate has talked and written about extensively: organizational cybersecurity.
Cybersecurity has historically been perceived as an enigma—a world of hackers lurking in the shadows—which reinforces the idea that the only way to stop them is with highly trained security experts at large enterprises with multi-million dollar budgets.
That needs to change on three main fronts to solve modern cybersecurity challenges:
- Ease of Use: Make cyber accessible to newcomers to train experts faster
- Transparency: Help customers understand how cyber solutions work and how they perform in different scenarios so they can make the right choice for their needs
- Innovation: Share information and data to help cyber companies innovate better solutions

- Why Business Leaders Need to Understand Their Algorithms - One of the biggest sources of anxiety about AI is not that it will turn against us, but that we simply cannot understand how it works.
- Why Constraints Are Good for Innovation - Recent surveys show that managers tend to consider compliance restrictions and a lack of resources as the main obstacles to innovation. And research shows that individuals, teams, and organizations alike benefit from a healthy dose of constraints. It is only when the constraints become too high that they stifle creativity and innovation.
