Alert Logic Appoints Vice President of Product Management
Chris Noell expands security, compliance and managed security expertise
Alert Logic (www.alertlogic.com), the leading provider of Security-as-a-Service solutions for the cloud, today announced the appointment of Chris Noell as Vice President of Product Management. Noell is responsible for all aspects of product management across the full range of Alert Logic Security-as-a-Service solutions. Noell brings to Alert Logic a wealth of experience in risk management and compliance products and services for the enterprise market. He most recently served as senior vice president of product management with ANX eBusiness, a managed network and security service provider. Noell joined ANX through the acquisition of TruArx, where he was a founder and board member. TruArx focused on delivering governance, risk and compliance SaaS solutions with a particular focus on the PCI DSS market. Noell also served as Vice President of Marketing at Solutionary, an enterprise-focused managed security service provider, in addition to other senior leadership roles at Verisign, Cabletron and Arthur Andersen Business Consulting.
In his new position, Noell will lead product strategy, prioritization and execution to both expand and accelerate Alert Logic’s delivery of innovative, cloud-based security and compliance solutions. Alert Logic’s Security-as-a-Service model offers service providers and enterprise customers four distinct advantages: market leading security tools, a fully outsourced and managed SaaS delivery model, integrated 24×7 Security Operations Center (SOC) services to monitor and provide expert guidance, and the ability to deploy wherever a customer has IT infrastructure – including the cloud.
With more than half of the largest managed hosting and cloud service providers using these services to secure their customer environments, Alert Logic is increasingly viewed as the de facto standard for securing infrastructure in hosted and cloud environments. “Chris’ experience in managed security services and his strong background in compliance are ideal additions to Alert Logic’s industry leading expertise in delivering comprehensive solutions to service provider partners,” said Dave Colesante, Alert Logic CTO & Senior Vice President of Product Development. “We look forward to the contributions Chris will make in helping to advance our portfolio of Security-as-a-Service solutions and help our partners and their customers stay ahead of changing compliance mandates.”
