Expertise and Security-as-a-Service solutions work together to investigate, mitigate security incidents HOUSTON – September 3, 2013 – Alert Logic (www.alertlogic.com), the leading provider of MDR solutions for the cloud, and Kroll, the world’s leading risk management company, today announced a strategic alliance to help businesses identify, respond to and recover from data breaches and other security incidents. When sensitive information is compromised, the two organizations work closely to quickly determine the source, scope and sensitivity of a security incident and apply security best practices to remediate the current issue and future data breach prevention. Kroll’s certified security and forensic experts utilize Alert Logic’s Security-as-a-Service solutions in their incident analysis and cyber investigations around the world to accurately diagnose incidents, pinpoint vulnerabilities and make sure systems are no longer compromised.
Kroll combines its significant experience, global reach and deep investigative knowledge regarding attacker methodology and exploits with Alert Logic’s Log Manager and LogReview to determine when and where the security breach occurred and what information was compromised. Also, Kroll leverages Alert Logic’s Threat Manager with ActiveWatch and ActiveWatch Premier as part of its comprehensive security assessments to identify potential vulnerabilities so risks can be resolved.
“Time is extremely important in incident and data breach response, and Alert Logic’s Security-as-a-Service solutions help us to quickly identify intruder access points, locate malware on customers’ networks and quickly restore operational and data security,” said Tim Ryan, Managing Director and Cyber Investigations Practice Leader for Kroll.
