On our own behalf: Please welcome the new CTO of Search Guard

Hi all,

today I am very happy to announce that we were able to win over Hendrik Saly as the new CTO of Search Guard.


Hendrik will be responsible for leading the IT team and driving the Search Guard development in the future. He brings in a ton of expert knowledge regarding Elasticsearch in general and security in particular. Before joining Search Guard he worked as a Sr. IT Consultant for codecentric AG, a major player for Big Data in Germany, providing expertise and solutions for many F100 companies. I’m really excited to have him on our team!

Please give a warm welcome to Hendrik!
