While all managed search providers spend considerable time and energy
securing your clusters, your search engine is still accessible via the
public internet. This makes it open to hacking attempts, particularly if a
team member doesn’t have proper security and encryption protocols in place.
Various security mistakes have caused
several large Elasticsearch breaches
that have resulted in the compromisation of millions of documents.
Many enterprises choose to deploy Elasticsearch within their own Virtual Private Clouds to protect from these breaches. In today’s real-time world though, search engines are becoming increasingly hard to manage. Managing a search engine requires extensive knowledge not only of basic DevOps, but of complex distributed computing.
Your organization should be focused on your search engine’s accuracy and relevance — not the management of its servers. Bonsai for Heroku Private Spaces gives your organization the security of a Virtual Private Cloud, with the convenience of Bonsai.
