Alert Logic Acquires Click Security

HOUSTON – April 15, 2016 – Alert Logic (, the leading provider of Security-as-a-Service solutions for the cloud, today announced that it acquired Austin-based Click Security. The real-time security analytics provider brings complementary threat detection and incident analysis capabilities, bolstering Alert Logic’s existing security analytics and threat detection solutions, and contributing additional security and engineering talent to the company.
