"With over 300 Alert Logic customers in the UK already, we are excited to announce today that Alert Logic is expanding into Europe with the goal of providing better support for our current and future customers."

The expansion is occurring across three different dimensions:

  • The company is currently developing its UK-based datacentre to provide local support for EMEA customers.
  • Construction is also underway for the first Alert Logic UK Security Operations Centre, which will include 24x7 security monitoring to address any threats that may arise.

In order to expedite the launch of Alert Logic's Cardiff headquarters, the Cardiff Business Council has awarded Alert Logic a developmental grant. This will be used in the creation of new jobs and the new datacentre, as well as further training programs.
