Big Projects, Big Challenges
Cloud Security Solutions for Future Development

Bentley’s solutions are used to design, build, and operate roadways, bridges, airports, skyscrapers, and industrial plants across the globe. The company adapts to meet the unique demands of various projects; be it a 50-story office tower in the heart of London, the world’s largest crude oil refinery in India, or the iconic main terminal building at Abu Dhabi airport.

The Challenge

The high-profile nature of many of Bentley’s clients’ projects dictates that security and data integrity are always major considerations. Bentley addresses this situation by attaining compliance with key industry standards, including the stringent ISO 27001 information security mandate.

The sophistication and sheer scale of Bentley’s solutions imposes significant demands on any component deployed in its IT infrastructure. 


We customize a large number of our implementations and are constantly innovating. We have to ensure that the technology choices we’re making don’t restrict us from doing so. Scalability, flexibility, and the ability to perform across a diverse set of environments are all critical selection criteria for us.

Why Alert Logic?

When Cibelli started the roll-out process, Bentley was using a combination of Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, and a regional cloud provider to deliver their cloud-based solutions. The ability for Alert Logic appliances to integrate with each of these environments was a major benefit. Cibelli claimed, “What really stood out from the competition was that it was clearly evident that Alert Logic was very familiar with a broad range of standards – including ISO 27001 and Sarbanes-Oxley – the team really understood what was involved in satisfying the most rigorous industry requirements.”

The Results

Implementing Alert Logic’s solutions showed immediate benefits by contributing to Bentley’s ISO 27001 certification. Cibelli concluded, “Alert Logic has enabled us to protect datacenters in our multi-cloud environment and we appreciate the security continuity we receive from Alert Logic as we move all-in on Azure. We’ve enhanced our overall security posture while leveraging the Alert Logic name with our prospects. People are familiar with the Alert Logic brand and what it represents, and this gives us the instant credibility that we’re using best-in-class components to empower our solutions.”
