Key Features (ENTERPRISE)

Solid alternative to X-Pack Security

All the features at a fraction of the price

We are not affiliated with X-Pack, and our product is conceptually different in many ways. But we still check off all the boxes.

We charge less, and our prices do not grow as you add nodes.

See a detailed comparison between X-Pack Security and ReadonlyREST Enterprise in our blog.

Real Multi-Tenancy

Different users, different dashboards

Go beyond the multi-user: give your users their own kibana index to save their visualizations, dashboards, index patterns, and other settings.

Alternatively, a Kibana index (a tenancy) can be assigned to a group of users, and each user can be granted different access levels (RO/RW).

Readonlyrest Enterprise Login

Tenancy selector

One user, many tenancies

When users are allowed to more than one tenancy, they can hop from one to the other by operating a drop-down menu.

Administrators don’t need to create additional fictitious users, and users don’t need to log out and log back in or handle more than one set of credentials.

SAML SSO integration

Ready for enterprise identity managemen.

There’s no need to configure passwords, users, or groups when you can connect Kibana to existing single sign-on identity management systems.

Our SAML connector can delegate both authentication and authorization to the single sign-on identity provider. It can resolve what groups the users belongs to and authorize them to access the right tenancies or indices accordingly.

Multi Factor Authentication (MFA)

Higher security, with great usability

Integrate with third party MFA providers like DUO and Okta. Your Kibana users will be required to additionally authorize any successful login attempts via SMS or push notification on their phone to prevent credentials theft.

MFA is powered by our SAML SSO connector which can integrate with your existing on-premises LDAP server via solutions like Microsoft ADFS.
