HOUSTON, Oct. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Alert Logic, a marquee security provider in the cloud, today announced that its security solution will be included in AWS Activate, a structured package of resources for startups provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS will include Alert Logic's Security-as-a-Service solutions as one of the special offers available to program participants, offering a cost-effective way to help startup businesses fulfill their role in the AWS shared responsibility security model.


Alert Logic's solutions for the cloud help companies manage their security and compliance responsibilities, enabling them to detect and respond to security events in their cloud infrastructure, as well as meet compliance requirements, such as PCI and HIPAA. Alert Logic offers availability of intrusion detection, vulnerability assessment, log management and web application firewall (coming soon) on AWS, so companies can immediately and cost-effectively start protecting infrastructures running on the AWS platform.

Currently available on the AWS cloud:

  • Threat Manager provides 24×7 network threat detection, leveraging a patented expert system driven by global threat data to pinpoint security threats.
  • Log Manager seamlessly collects, stores, correlates and reports on log data in the cloud, generating a unified view of data for full security and compliance.
  • Alert Logic Web Security Manager (coming soon) delivers inline protection of web applications from dangerously common attacks such as SQL Injection and Cross Site Scripting, along with full coverage of OWASP Top Ten.

With its inclusion in AWS Activate, Alert Logic provides solutions to help meet the security requirements facing startups that typically don't have the initial bandwidth to reach compliance in-house. Bancbox, a payment service provider that currently hosts ten servers in the production environment on AWS is one startup that is already benefitting from Alert Logic's solutions.

"As a startup company in the payment services industry, compliance is critical," said Praveer Kumar, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Bancbox. "Alert Logic provides a great solution for our needs. We can take advantage of the hosted solution that Alert Logic provides, and still meet all of the compliance requirements that are necessary."

"As a co-founder of Alert Logic, I have firsthand knowledge of how important it is to have access to quality resources in the startup phase of a business," said Misha Govshteyn, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer at Alert Logic. "We are excited to be facilitating startups by extending effective security products to reach necessary compliance requirements on AWS."
