Alert Logic Announces Availability of Security Solutions for the Microsoft Azure Cloud Log, IDS and WAF Solutions Allow Customers to Fulfill Shared Security Responsibility
HOUSTON, May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Alert Logic, the leading provider of Security-as-a-Service for the cloud, today announced availability of its end-to-end security solutions for the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. This release is an expansion of Alert Logic's existing product offering of Alert Logic Log Manager for Microsoft Azure. With the addition of Alert Logic Threat Manager and Alert Logic Web Security Manager, the company now delivers network, system and application security for workloads running on the Microsoft Azure public cloud, allowing customers to fulfill their security and compliance requirements with a single solution across cloud and hybrid IT environments.
"Security and compliance are top priorities of Microsoft Azure customers," said Vibhor Kapoor, Director Product Marketing, Microsoft. "We're pleased that Alert Logic's security suite gives customers the option of an additional layer of network and application security designed specifically for the Azure cloud."
Microsoft Azure's shared responsibility approach to security requires customers to maintain responsibility for data and application protection. Alert Logic's security solution runs natively in the Microsoft Azure cloud, as well as on customer premises and in hosted datacenters. This hybrid model for cloud security—unique to Alert Logic—gives customers a holistic, single-pane-of-glass view into their security posture, thereby eliminating the need to deploy multiple products to accommodate different environments. The same tool is used for all environments, providing the same customer experience across all infrastructures, wherever the application is deployed.
"We are excited to provide Microsoft Azure customers with a suite of security and compliance solutions that allow them to migrate their applications to the Microsoft Azure cloud with complete confidence in their security posture," said Rohit Gupta, Vice President of Business Development, Alert Logic. "This will give more and more businesses the ability to stay secure, compliant, and use their internal resources to focus on their business, not their security."
Security solutions are crucial not only to the safety of a business's critical data, but also to the success of the business itself. Current Microsoft Azure and Alert Logic customer EnergyEarth recently deployed Alert Logic Log Manager, and has been able to meet their compliance requirements while reducing costs by employing a single, managed security solution in their Microsoft Azure environment.
"Alert Logic's Log Manager for Microsoft Azure successfully fulfills our compliance requirements with a single security solution that is fully scalable. This makes Alert Logic both a logical and economically sound decision for us," said Jeff Grine Director, IT for EnergyEarth. "We look forward to seeing the expansion of Alert Logic's security solution in the marketplace."
The complete suite of Alert Logic solutions provides a unique set of benefits to the customer, including:
- Deep insights into security via Alert Logic's SaaS-based big-data analytics and correlation engine, global threat visibility and security research focused on emerging threats and security best practices
- Continuous protection across the application stack via a 24x7 Security Operations Center that analyzes, escalates and works with customers to remediate threats with actionable intelligence
- Cloud-based delivery model—no hardware or software for the customer to manage and a flexible op-ex based licensing model
