Alert Logic first to deliver IDS and log management capabilities to Google cloud customers
HOUSTON, July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Alert Logic , the leading provider of Security-as-a-Service solutions for the cloud, today announced availability of Alert Logic Log Manager and Alert Logic Threat Manager for Google Cloud Platform. With these product releases, the company will deliver network and system security for workloads running on Google’s public cloud – the same cloud infrastructure that powers such highly-trafficked software applications as Google Search and YouTube.
Alert Logic offers Security-as-a-Service in the cloud – a platform of fully managed products and services to keep a customer’s data and infrastructure safe and compliant. Whether a company’s IT infrastructure is on-premises, in the cloud or hybrid, the Alert Logic portfolio of solutions and services allow unprecedented visibility into their business environment, providing continuous protection, deep security insight and lower overall security costs.
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 Security-as-a-Service-based big-data analytics and correlation engine, global threat visibility and security research focused on emerging threats and security best practices.
- Continuous protection down the application stack via a 24×7 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.
“The same infrastructure, tools, processes and systems that are used internally to build applications like Google Search and Gmail are now available to power your start-up or business,” said Gray Hall, CEO of Alert Logic. “With our unique platform, process and software solutions, we’re excited to be the first to offer Security-as-a-Service for Google Cloud Platform and its users.”
While cloud platforms tend to be inherently secure, generally, applications built on top of the cloud can be susceptible to vulnerabilities, and traditional security tools weren’t built for cloud environments and deployments. Alert Logic’s solution combines advanced cloud-based technology with human expertise which allows customers to fulfill their security and compliance requirements with a single solution across cloud and hybrid IT environments.
Cloud9 IDE, an online application development environment, deployed Alert Logic on its Google Cloud Platform infrastructure to monitor security and compliance on the applications built by developers on their environment.
