The Houston Business Journal has announced that for the sixth consecutive year, Alert Logic (www.alertlogic.com), the leading provider of Security-as-a-Service solutions for the cloud, is among the fastest growing technology companies in Houston. The Fast Tech 50 Awards recognize local technology companies with record performance based on percentage of annual revenue growth. This marks the 11th year of this prestigious award program.
The Fast Tech 50 Awards were presented as part of the Fast Tech 50 Technology Conference on Tuesday, November 29, 2011. To kick off the conference, Alert Logic CEO Gray Hall was one of four panelists selected to discuss the challenges, opportunities and future of technology during the Technology Leadership Summit. Alert Logic also participated in “Technopalooza,” a showcase of more than 25 featured companies.
“We appreciate this opportunity to celebrate Houston’s technology community and are proud to be recognized for a sixth consecutive year,” said Gray Hall. “We hope this event sends the message that Houston’s tech companies are growing and are a vital part of Houston’s economic vitality.” Alert Logic ranked 29 with over 42 percent growth and is rapidly staffing in every area of the organization.
Alert Logic’s security and compliance solutions are at the intersection of two red-hot technology trends – the migration of IT infrastructure to cloud computing environments and the need to ensure data remains safe and infrastructure is audit-ready. With more than half of the largest managed hosting and cloud service providers using Alert Logic’s services to secure their customer environments, Alert Logic is increasingly viewed as the de facto standard for securing infrastructure in hosted and cloud environments.
