Pre-Fi

During our selection process, we initially chose Trend Micro’s IDS solution as our first option and that helped us get through the phase one process. When we ended up moving to Alert Logic Enterprise, it was night and day better. We didn’t need the hardware to run it and there was different methodology around the IDS aspect.

Financial Services Start-Up
Thrives with Comprehensive Cybersecurity

Pre-Fi works with consumer lending companies that sell mortgage and car loans. Their solution helps simplify the pre-qualification process for consumers. While a start-up in this space, Pre-Fi is required to comply with the same PCI level 1 requirements that large enterprises must abide by.

The Challenge

Given their business model, they needed to get connected to a credit bureau. One of Pre-Fi’s key goals was to get a solid cybersecurity system in place so they could focus on growing the business. In looking for the vendor to meet this need, they found Alert Logic. Now, Lee Ramsey, Co-Founder and Entrepreneur feels he can sleep well at night.


We would have needed multiple vendors on board to be able to do what we are doing with just Alert Logic. If I were talking to one of my colleagues in the industry who is looking for a cybersecurity solution, I would recommend Alert Logic, hands down.

Why Alert Logic?

“During our selection process, we initially chose Trend Micro’s IDS solution as our first option and that helped us get through the phase one process. When we ended up moving to Alert Logic Enterprise was night and day better. We didn’t need the hardware to run it and there was different methodology around the IDS aspect. Since we don’t have to run as much hardware on AWS we are saving money since we made the switch,” explains Ramsey.

The Results

Pre-Fi’s experience with Alert Logic is described as high value due to the combination of the security platform, threat intelligence, and cybersecurity professionals who work on his behalf in the Security Operations Center. Ramsey elaborates, “Right from the beginning, the onboarding team was there for us and one of the big things was using their vulnerability scanner within Alert Logic Enterprise to understand our vulnerabilities. I could pick up the phone and talk to the Alert Logic call center and immediately get help.

“We would have needed multiple vendors on board to be able to do what we are doing with just Alert Logic. If I were talking to one of my colleagues in the industry who is looking for a cybersecurity solution, I would recommend Alert Logic, hands down. I’ve never seen such a comprehensive cybersecurity solution ever. As a web developer, I feel like many vulnerabilities always come through web applications and the Alert Logic solutions, such as their web application security capability in Alert Logic Enterprise listens to the web traffic, protects our web server and covers our network side comprehensively. I think anyone running web applications could benefit from this type of cybersecurity solution.”
