Company Follows Up Welsh Carson Transaction with Another Quarter of 40%+ Yearly Growth
HOUSTON, TX – October 17, 2013 – Alert Logic (www.alertlogic.com), the recognized leader in Security-as-a-Service solutions for the cloud, today announced GAAP revenues for the quarter ending September 30, 2013 of $10.8 million, up 40 percent from the third quarter of 2012, and up 7 percent from the second quarter of 2013. Alert Logic’s annualized revenue under contract in the month of September 2013 exceeded $47 million, and is tracking ahead of the company’s plan to reach a $50 million run-rate by the end of 2013. Alert Logic momentum in key growth segments increased in Q3 as recent new product launches designed specifically for public cloud and private cloud environments were the company’s fastest-growing product lines. Sales through public and private cloud providers outpaced all other segments. “Our rapid growth in the third quarter provides further proof that the security we have been providing for years to customers of managed hosting providers through our Threat Manager, Log Manager and Web Security Manager product lines can now be extended to customers of public and private cloud providers,” said Gray Hall, Alert Logic’s president and CEO. “Having completed our re-capitalization transaction with Welsh Carson in August, we have set the stage for Alert Logic to expand our sales and distribution channels internationally as we bring our market-leading security solutions to cloud providers worldwide.” Alert Logic has a total of more than 2,300 customers using its Security-as-a-Service solutions, both via service providers and directly from Alert Logic. Alert Logic’s notable highlights for Q3 2013 include:
- Deployed next-generation versions of Threat Manager, Log Manager and Web Security Manager with dozens of service providers including several of the industry’s largest managed hosting and cloud providers.
- Completed a re-capitalization transaction led by Welsh Carson Anderson & Stowe (“Welsh Carson”), in which Welsh Carson acquired majority interest in Alert Logic, in partnership with Alert Logic management. Morgan Stanley advised Alert Logic on the transaction.
- Extended Web Security Manager to public cloud environments, marking the first available auto-scaling web application firewall for the cloud.
- Named to INC Magazine’s 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America for the second consecutive year.
