Graylog is a leading enterprise log management system that enables fast and efficient log analysis in the areas of security, compliance, operations and DevOps. Our enterprise product enables large organizations to capture, store and analyze terabytes of machine data in near-real time, while our open project empowers individuals and small teams to perform basic log consolidation, analysis, and search functions at no cost.

We are a fast growing company with locations in Germany and headquarters in Houston, TX, serving customers all over the world.

At Graylog, you will find a diverse group of experienced professionals who love to have fun while meeting the needs of customers with the best solution and customer service available!

Our Integrations Team's goal is to enable Graylog users to collect logs from anywhere, enrich those logs with data from any relevant source, and send their logs onward to any system that needs to consume them. One day we may be writing a custom codec for handling data from a popular firewall vendor. The next day we may be figuring out how to integrate with a malware tracker so our users can filter their logs for known malware signatures.  The day after that we could be building a solution to support our users sending their enriched log data to their data lake in the cloud.
