SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RSA Conference USA 2014 -- Alert Logic, a leading provider of Security-as-a-Service solutions for the cloud, today announced that it has won Most Innovative Cloud Security Product as part of Cyber Defense Magazine's New InfoSec Technologies Awards, presented at the RSA Conference.
The Cyber Defense Magazine's New InfoSec Technologies Awards program recognizes companies that have a unique and compelling value proposition. Judges are CISSP, FMDHS, or CEH-certified security professionals who independently review and vote on candidates.
Taking top honors, Alert Logic's Security-as-a-Service suite is designed to protect applications, networks, and systems in the cloud, offering a combination of detection and protection technologies integrated with security content, analytics, and monitoring services delivered through a fully-managed service. Benefits include:
- Native Public Cloud Support: The company's intrusion detection, vulnerability scanning, log management, and web application firewall solutions run natively in leading public cloud environments, supporting key cloud capabilities such as auto scaling.
- Hybrid Data Center Support: Alert Logic secures hybrid IT environments by providing customers with the same security solutions across multiple environments – physical, virtual, private, and public clouds. This comprehensive data center security eliminates the need for multiple disparate toolsets. Customers have a global view of security across all infrastructure and environments.
- Managed Security Services: Solutions are delivered as a managed service focused on security and compliance outcomes using proactive intelligence. Analysts in the Alert Logic Security Operations Center monitor customer environments 24x7 and respond to alerts that are analyzed and correlated within the company's proprietary security intelligence platform.
- Security Research: The Alert Logic Security Research team manages both custom security content for its 2,400-plus customers as well as third-party feeds from leading security organizations; allowing for global threat visibility and an integrated view of security across all layers of the application stack.
"While traditional security products provide technology and some content, they typically require the customer to undertake the integration, management, and monitoring work required to make it a useful solution. Alert Logic takes a unique approach by allowing its Security-as-a-Service suite to help customers quickly deploy security in their hybrid environments and ensure ongoing monitoring and remediation," said Misha Govshteyn, Alert Logic Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer. "It is gratifying to be recognized for our distinction within the industry."
