Houston-based Security-as-a-Service solution provider opens sixth office amid global expansion
HOUSTON, TX – February 9, 2015 – Alert Logic, the leading provider of Security-as-a-Service solutions for the cloud, today announced its sixth global office with expansion into Seattle. In addition to the new Seattle office, the company has recently expanded from Houston into London, Cardiff and Belfast, United Kingdom, as well as Dallas, with the acquisition of security-scanning company Critical Watch.

“Alert Logic is experiencing rapid growth having achieved our stated goal of reaching a $70 million run-rate in 2014 and surpassing 3,000 customers,” said Gray Hall, CEO of Alert Logic. “Seattle is an important technology hub and opening an office in Seattle puts us physically closer to a number of our customers and prospective customers, as well as key growth partners like AWS, Microsoft and Google.”

The new Seattle office will be staffed by a combination of Engineers, Sales, Business Development and Marketing employees. In addition, the office will contain the Alert Logic Executive Briefing Center, a briefing room and hospitality center designed to engage key customers, prospective customers and partners.
