Alert Logic Delivers Managed Log Service on Amazon Web Services Platform

Log Manager for Amazon Web Services beta availability further expands the Alert Logic security-as-a-service offering in the AWS environment

HOUSTON, TX – November 27, 2012Alert Logic, the leading provider of Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for the cloud, today announced beta availability of Log Manager for Amazon Web Services (AWS). Log Manager collects, normalizes, stores and reports on log data, enabling customers to identify and respond to security events in their Amazon cloud infrastructure and meet compliance requirements such as PCI and HIPAA. Released in 2007, Log Manager is the first cloud log management service on the market with over 1.5 petabytes of customer logs under management.

This new offering is the first managed log service with daily log review developed around the unique requirements of the AWS cloud. This release adds to the company’s existing AWS offering of Threat Manager, Alert Logic’s intrusion detection and vulnerability assessment security solution, released earlier this year and available in the AWS Marketplace. Alert Logic has now tailored two of its major product lines specifically for the requirements of the AWS environment.

“Effective security management in the cloud requires a full range of IT security solutions,” said Rohit Gupta, Vice President of Business Development. “Log Manager builds on Alert Logic’s Threat Manager offering by providing an immediate and cost-effective log management option in the cloud for AWS customers.”

Log Manager for Amazon Web Services includes:

  • Powerful reporting, search and alerting capabilities to identify meaningful information in log data.
  • Secure storage and archival of log data according to business and compliance requirements.
  • Ability to support any combination of pure cloud, hybrid and on-premise deployments via host agents and virtual or physical appliances.
  • Native AWS support, including meta-data discovery, agent-based collection and auto-scaling roles support.
  • Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) support, with no inbound firewall port requirement and a single point of egress.
  • Extensive agent management abilities, including policy-driven configuration and software upgrade.

According to Justin Clark, head of operations for Spindle, Inc., a leading provider of mobile payments solutions that relies on Alert Logic’s Threat Manager service, the addition of the Log Manager solution will enhance the company’s ability to leverage the multiple benefits of AWS.

“Our relationship with Alert Logic provides Spindle with a robust and cost-efficient vehicle to leverage the many operational benefits of AWS,” said Clark. “Through this partnership, we are able to maintain superior flexibility, without incurring the expense of maintaining an internal data center environment,” said Clark. “Alert Logic’s ease of deployment for AWS, pricing structure, and superior service, allows Spindle to satisfy its PCI compliance objectives. Alert Logic’s new Log Manager for AWS will provide Spindle even greater functionality that will serve our business requirements well into the future.”
