Berlin, 06/29/2020. floragunn GmbH, manufacturer of the security plug-in Search Guard, based in Berlin, is strengthening its business activities in the German-speaking market. Software resellers and distributors in Germany, Austria and Switzerland who want to expand their portfolio in the area of Big Data Security with a user-friendly solution now have a direct person to contact. Search Guard is an open source plug-in for use in ​enterprise search for the protection of Elasticsearch clusters.

floragunn, manufacturer of the security plug-in Search Guard, is intensifying its activities on the European home market DACH. Thomas Mahler,a graduate engineer for electrical engineering, is the companies new sales contact for software resellers, distributors and business customers. Moving forward there will be additional growth in international sales and OEM partners.

With over 20 years of professional experience in senior management positions at Gemalto, the Thales Group, Canon, Océ, TA Triumph-Adler and many others, Thomas Mahler knows how software resellers and distributors benefit from sales with Search Guard: "Exponentially growing data volumes are rapidly driving up management and security costs. With Search Guard, users receive a comprehensively equipped security plug-in for Elasticsearch clusters which allows them to stay one step ahead of attacks and unauthorised control​. ​The licensing model is cluster-based so that costs are stable and calculable from the outset. This creates many added values and makes it easier for resellers to increase the data security of their customers”.

Special features of the licensing model in favour of the users

To make license management easier for users, the fee is usually calculated based on the clusters to be protected and not on the number of nodes in the clusters. In both the Enterprise and the Compliance Edition, the manufacturer provides the common auto-renewal model. Customers thus have the option of deciding the term of their license themselves. "The Search Guard sales structure is based on the reseller concept. If the customer decides to extend the license, our sales partners participate in the same way," says Thomas Mahler. In addition to the free Community Edition, Search Guard is also available as a premium liscence version in the Enterprise Edition and Compliance Edition. The Enterprise Edition contains additional features that are significant for the user, such as integration of Active Directory/LDAP, JSON webtokens, SAML and Single Sign On. The Compliance Edition helps to meet the requirements of the DSGVO and enables, among other things, the protection of data down to the form field level of a document.

Search Guard offers the option of paid support on an annual basis to provide fast, comprehensive and individual assistance. In addition, Search Guard users actively support each other with questions and answers in the Search Guard Forum, which is available free of charge.
