HOUSTON, Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Alert Logic (, the leading provider of Security-as-a-Service solutions for the cloud, to help organizations secure the application and infrastructure stack, defend against security threats, and address compliance mandates.



  • Gray Hall, CEO of Alert Logic - joined the company in 2009 as a 20-year veteran of the IT industry.
  • Misha Govshteyn, Co-founder of Alert Logic - serves as Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer.

Hall and Govshteyn will moderate Capturing the Cloud Security Opportunity, a panel of the cloud services industry's most progressive thought leaders as they discuss one of the next frontiers – providing security for enterprises moving their IT infrastructure to the cloud. This year's keynote topic builds upon CEO Gray Hall's call to action to the IT security industry at last year's HCTS, in which he urged top security companies in the industry to truly evolve their businesses to address the unique service delivery model of cloud and hosting service providers.

According to Hall, as enterprise customers move to the cloud, they expect better security solutions in the cloud than they are able to implement in their own data centers. Fulfilling this customer requirement will be crucial to maintaining the rapid historical growth rate of the hosting/cloud service provider industry over the next decade.  The industry is in the early stages of cloud security adoption and both service providers and IT security vendors are changing the way they deliver cloud security to enterprise customers. Cloud service providers are in a position to dictate the degree to which IT security vendors change their model to meet the unique needs of cloud service providers. HCTS keynote panel attendees will gain insight into the deployment of unique security strategies for the enterprise as the panel discusses the following hot topics:

  • Barriers to broader cloud adoption – how much does this still include security?
  • How customers view the overall security responsibility
  • Differences in delivering security versus other IT infrastructure services, such as storage and backup
  • Challenges in delivering security solutions
  • What customers are asking for:  mix and match solutions with more product categories or a few simple, integrated bundles to take the problem off their hands?
  • Is the security industry doing enough to provide service providers what they need to deliver security solutions to meet customer requirements?
  • How will cloud providers be positioning security to customers 1-2 years down the road?
