Data Foundry to add Alert Logic solutions to its line of Managed Security Services
AUSTIN, Texas – January 8, 2013 – Data Foundry, a leading provider of global data center colocation, disaster recovery and managed services, today announced that they will integrate solutions from Alert Logic, the leading provider of Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for the cloud, including vulnerability assessment, intrusion detection and log management into its current suite of managed security services.
Data Foundry will now be able to provide enterprise customers the ability to choose Alert Logic Threat Manager, Alert Logic Log Manager and Alert Logic Web Security Manager from its managed services portfolio. Alert Logic Threat Manager automatically identifies malicious behavior and questionable network patterns originating both inside and outside of a customer’s network. Alert Logic Log Manager collects and archives log data on events relevant to customers’ security. Alert Logic Web Security Manager protects cloud environments by blocking web application attacks with a combination of signature-based detection and application behavior profiling. Alert Logic’s 24×7 Managed Security Services, including ActiveWatch and LogReview, provide expert human analysis, review and insight on real-time security threats and alerts.
“In this era of increasingly sophisticated attacks, the key to intrusion detection is visibility into the activity on systems, applications and devices,” said Edward Henigin, Chief Technology Officer for Data Foundry. “By partnering with Alert Logic, we now have a best-in-class IDS and compliance solution in our managed services portfolio to offer customers.”
Early detection of security threats has become a priority for many organizations after a flurry of attacks this spring. The Ponemon Institute recently found that 78 percent of survey respondents said there has been an increase in the frequency of attacks in the past year and most of these attacks have become more severe and difficult to detect and contain.
Alert Logic’s Security-as-a-Service provides Data Foundry and its enterprise customers four distinct advantages: market leading PCI (payment card industry) compliance, a fully managed SaaS delivery model, integrated 24×7 Security Operations Center (SOC) services to monitor and provide expert guidance, and it is deployable anywhere a customer has IT infrastructure – including the cloud.
“By leveraging the capabilities of Threat Manager, Log Manager and Web Security Manager, Data Foundry is further proving its commitment to providing industry best security services to its customers,” said Alert Logic Vice President of Business Development Rohit Gupta. “We are excited to be partnering with such a premium data center operator.”
