The last version of Elasticsearch released under the Apache license was indeed 7.10.2. This is no longer maintained and has not receved any security fixes.

If you are not able to use newer versions of Elasticsearch due to the license I would recommend having a look at Opensearch, which uses the Apache license. This started out as a fork of Elasticsearch 7.10.2 but is now a completely separate product that requires its own client libraries and is no longer compatible fully with Elasticsearch. Exactly how much you would need to change depends on how you are using and interacting with Elasticsearch.

OpenSearch/OpenDistro are AWS run products and differ from the original Elasticsearch and Kibana products that Elastic builds and maintains. You may need to contact them directly for further assistance.
