Alert Logic CEO to Deliver Call-to-Action to the Security and Cloud Hosting Industries During 451 Research’s Annual Summit

HOUSTON, TX – Sept. 13, 2012Alert Logic, the leading provider of Security-as-a-Service solutions for the cloud, today announced that the company’s president and CEO Gray Hall will deliver a call-to-action to the security and cloud hosting industry at 451 Research’s Hosting and Cloud Transformation Summit (HCTS NA) on Sept. 19, 2012, in Las Vegas. As a security partner to more than half of the largest cloud and hosting providers, Alert Logic has a unique visibility into the industry, and has used this insight to develop a path toward increased cloud migration through the delivery of superior security solutions.

The hosting and cloud industry has experienced impressive growth rates and has outpaced – by a factor of seven – the rest of the IT industry, but a large growth opportunity still exists in cloud security. The hosting and cloud industry has the opportunity to provide better IT security solutions in the cloud than enterprises can implement inside their own data centers.

As part of his “Leadership Perspective” address at the event, Mr. Hall will deliver a call-to-action to urge top security companies in the industry to truly evolve their businesses to address the unique service delivery model of cloud and hosting service providers.

“The hosting and cloud industry must urge their security partners to adapt solutions to fit the business model of cloud providers and their customers,” said Hall. “It might seem counterintuitive to encourage the competition to adopt a model that has proven to be highly successful for Alert Logic. But growing the whole pie, and not just our slice of it, is our overriding objective as the leading provider of security-as-a-service for the cloud.”

Alert Logic is a platinum sponsor of the Hosting & Cloud Transformation Summit, the premier forum for the hosting, data center and Internet infrastructure sectors. During this three-day conference, Alert Logic will also unveil its latest semi-annual research report, State of Cloud Security Report, which contains fact-based findings from approximately 1,600 customers in both on-premise and cloud environments.
