BRYAN-COLLEGE STATION, Texas — The Texas A&M University System, one of the largest systems of higher education in the nation, is a winner of the 2023 Elastic Excellence in Security Business Transformation Award. The award was presented during the 2024 ElasticON New York last month..

“I am pleased to receive the Elastic Excellence in Security Business Transformation award and am proud of my team and the work that this award represents,” said Andrew Stokes, director of cyber operations for The Texas A&M University System. “Elastic has been a force multiplier for us and is a critical part of our overall toolset.”

The Elastic Excellence Awards celebrate organizations and individuals demonstrating ingenuity and resilience by pushing the limits of data search, observability, and security with groundbreaking implementations. Award recipients were recognized for demonstrating results and value within their organizations through their Elastic-based use cases.

The A&M System has leveraged Elastic Security to completely transform how the A&M System’s cybersecurity professionals protect, investigate, and respond to threats from adversaries across the globe. Incorporating Elastic has allowed Texas A&M System Cybersecurity to optimize their detection capabilities, reduce the overhead needed to operate a highly scalable security platform that serves over 153,000 students and 40,000 faculty and staff, and correlate security signals from a variety of sources into a single pane of glass that delivers unprecedented efficiencies for cyber analysts.

This year’s Elastic Excellence Awards fall under six categories: the Cause Award, Business Transformation Award, Solve with Search Award, Innovation Award, Public Sector Award, and Elastic Certified Professional of the Year.

“We are honored to partner with customers across all industries to help them develop innovative ways to strengthen business resilience and improve societies using search-powered AI,” said Mark Dodds, chief revenue officer at Elastic. “What inspires Elastic’s product innovation and equally humbles us are the exceptional projects and solutions our customers have created using Elastic. We’re excited to recognize some of those extraordinary use cases as part of our Elastic Excellence Awards and congratulate The Texas A&M University System for this well-deserved recognition.”
