Alert Logic State of Cloud Security Report Replaces FUD with Facts
Data driven analysis of threats from real customer environments dispels longstanding myths
HOUSTON – February 27, 2012 – Alert Logic (www.alertlogic.com), the leading provider of Security-as-a-Service solutions for the cloud, today released its first State of Cloud Security Report, a semi-annual quantitative analysis comparing real world security incidents observed in hosted and cloud environments with those observed in traditional on-premise environments. Counter to the conventional wisdom that infrastructure in service provider managed cloud environments is inherently less secure, the analysis found these environments tend to face a lower level of risk than on-premise environments.
The Alert Logic State of Cloud Security Report, Spring 2012 examined 12 months of security data collected from more than 1,500 customers yielding over 62,000 verified security incidents. The security incidents captured during the study period were automatically evaluated through Alert Logic’s expert system and reviewed by Alert Logic’s certified security analysts to ensure accurate detection.
The State of Cloud Security Report found the following:
“While security can never be taken for granted, decisions around where and how to deploy IT infrastructure should be based on fact not fear,” said Marty McGuffin, VP of Operations at Alert Logic. “Our research suggests that a well managed service provider can not only match the level of security found inside an enterprise’s four walls, but actually exceed it.”
