London – May 22, 2017 – Alert Logic, the leading provider of Security-as-a-Service solutions for the cloud, today announced that Alert Logic Cloud Defender, the industry’s first fully-managed, cloud-native security and compliance solution, is now listed on the UK Government’s public sector procurement framework, G-Cloud 9. Inclusion on the list enables public sector IT teams to more easily and more cost-effectively find and procure Alert Logic to help secure their cloud computing infrastructures, and, specifically, defend against the top cloud security vulnerability – web application attacks.
“Web application attacks are the most prevalent source of data breaches for organizations leveraging cloud and hybrid computing infrastructures,” said David Howorth, Senior Vice President EMEA for Alert Logic. “Inclusion on G-Cloud helps Alert Logic provide public sector teams developing cloud applications with a multi-layer web application attack defence that combines fully-managed security services, machine learning, threat intelligence and 24x7 security experts to protect sensitive data and defend against cyber attacks.”
G-Cloud enables public sector IT teams to easily and cost-effectively search and acquire services from pre-approved suppliers of cloud-based services, avoiding time-intensive and expensive traditional procurement practices. Additionally, through G-Cloud’s Digital Marketplace, public sector organizations can more easily standardize procurement contracts, terms and conditions with pre-approved vendors.
Alert Logic Cloud Defender combines managed security software and expert security services to best assess, detect and block threats to applications and cloud-based workloads. Additionally, Cloud Defender helps public sector and enterprise organizations comply with regulatory mandates such as PCI and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that will become EU law in 2018. Cloud Defender is provided on an as-a-Service, subscription basis.
