HOUSTON, July 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Alert Logic, a leading provider of Security-as-a-Service for the cloud, today announced participation in the new AWS Marketplace Consulting Partner program from Amazon Web Services (AWS). The program is designed to provide AWS Marketplace customers with a list of approved System Integrators and Channel Partners for select software and services vendors at the point of the purchase experience. The purpose of the program is to make readily available those resources and vendors with AWS experience, that will provide AWS customers with an enhanced cloud computing experience on the AWS Cloud.
Alert Logic's System Integrators and Channel Partners participating in the AWS Marketplace Consulting Partner program include 2nd Watch, Cloudreach, Datapipe, DualSpark, Logicworks, Nimbo and Smart421. As part of the program, these partners will be listed in AWS Marketplace, making it easier for AWS customers to identify and discover the partner solutions. Additionally, Alert Logic consulting partners will gain access to a range of resources and training to better enable AWS customers to deploy, run and manage applications on the AWS Cloud – applications that are both secure and compliant.
"We're deeply committed to ensuring that the cloud is safe and secure, enabling organizations to leverage all the competitive advantages that cloud computing can deliver to businesses," said Brian Forbes, Vice President of Partner and Americas Field Marketing at Alert Logic. "We aim to do all that we can to highlight and promote our strong channel partners who extend our 24x7 security and compliance solutions to AWS customers. This program will go a long way in connecting our customers with these resources with AWS experience."
"Businesses understand more and more every day that the security controls that secure your cloud platform, and legacy security tools that were built for on-premises deployments, are simply not adequate to secure applications deployed on the cloud," said Jeff Aden, EVP of Marketing and Strategic Business Development for 2nd Watch. "The AWS Marketplace Consulting Partner Program will help customers find those next-generation cloud security solutions and the partners who can help them deploy those solutions, ensuring that their sensitive data and the sensitive data of their customers is secure."
"We're pleased to welcome Alert Logic's consulting partners into the new AWS Marketplace Consulting Partner program," said Dave McCann, Vice President, AWS Marketplace, Amazon Web Services, Inc. "AWS Marketplace customers can now more easily discover the right ISV specific consulting partners who can configure and deploy the fully-managed security services that Alert Logic provides to both enterprises and small- and medium- sized businesses. Web workload security is a top buying pattern we see from AWS Marketplace customers to manage the application workload layer. As more and more workloads are enabled by AWS Marketplace products, our focus on giving our customers the best possible experience is enhanced by having Alert Logic's partners visible at the moment of purchase."
