Alert Logic Named a Visionary in Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant for Managed Security Services, Worldwide

Alert Logic Finds its Managed Detection and Response Capabilities and Support for Multi-Cloud, On-Premises and Hybrid Environments Helps Companies move Beyond Traditional Managed Security Services

Houston – May 6, 2019Alert Logic announced today it has been named a Visionary in Gartner’s newly-published 2019 Magic Quadrant for Managed Security Services, Worldwide. Alert Logic is also included in Gartner’s 2018 Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services.*

The report states that for managed detection and response services, “Organizations are looking to address a lack of 24/7 threat detection and response — especially where there is lower maturity, and little to no investment in detection technologies and the experts needed to use those tools and perform incident response activities. Thus, MDR services are filling the demand.”

“Companies continue to be challenged in protecting their businesses from cyber threats due to increasing hacker sophistication and limited internal resources,” said Matt Selheimer, Chief Marketing Officer, Alert Logic. “To solve this problem, companies are implementing managed detection and response services to detect attacks earlier in their lifecycle, reduce dwell time, and coordinate incident response actions. We are very pleased that Gartner has recognized Alert Logic as a Visionary in the Magic Quadrant for Managed Security Services, Worldwide. We believe this validates our strong focus on delivering managed detection and response capabilities to our more than 4,000 customers, regardless of whether their IT networks reside in the cloud, on-premises or in a hybrid environment.”

“Enterprises increasingly focus on proactive detection and response as the threat landscape evolves with the hyper speed of innovation,” said Brian Anderson, Vice President Product Management, TierPoint. “Alert Logic helps us deliver secure-by-design IT solutions that enable proactive protection for our customers. With Alert Logic SIEMless Threat Management, we deliver the security platform, intelligence and experts that provide businesses of any size with market-leading threat management capabilities, detecting both broad and advanced threats and helping contain and remediate them.”

“Alert Logic combines around-the-clock security staff with a standard toolset and operating procedures to provide consistent high levels of service that scale with our business growth,” said Marty Jablonski, Information Security Officer, Apervita. “This is why we decided to make them our security vendor partner. From our view, seeing their recognition as a Visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Managed Security Services, Worldwide provides additional validation that we made the right choice.”
