Alert Logic Threat Manager for Amazon EC2 Now Available on AWS Marketplace
Makes it simple to find, compare and immediately start using leading network intrusion detection solution for cloud environments
HOUSTON – April 19, 2012 – Alert Logic, a leader in delivering Security-as-a-Service for the cloud, today announced that Alert Logic Threat Manager for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) is among the first security solutions available directly through Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace. Participation in AWS Marketplace represents a major change in how customers acquire Alert Logic’s network security services. Customers seeking vulnerability assessment and intrusion detection can quickly provision Alert Logic Threat Manager for Amazon EC2 and immediately and cost-effectively start protecting their infrastructure running on the AWS platform.
Alert Logic Threat Manager for EC2 is available as a utility service and billed on an hourly basis. It is a Security-as-a-Service solution that provides subscribers the ability to automatically aggregate and correlate anomalous behavior patterns to quickly identify threats and attacks to their network by leveraging Alert Logic’s patented expert system, which includes 7-Factor Threat Scenario Modeling used to identify incidents. As described in the recent Alert Logic State of Cloud Security Report, Spring 2012, this system is used to observe billions of security events annually and verify the tens of thousands of security threats that require a response.
“Through AWS Marketplace, it is easier than ever for customers with infrastructure or services running on the AWS platform, to assess vulnerabilities and identify threats with intrusion detection services,” said Misha Govsteyn, VP of Emerging Products at Alert Logic. “Alert Logic Threat Manager for Amazon EC2 is completely self-service and flexible, making it possible for customers to provision new resources and easily scale up or down as their needs change.”
New management APIs from Alert Logic provide 100 percent automation for all provisioning functions and customers will be able to pay for Threat Manager for EC2 via their regular AWS bill, using the same payment method they use for the rest of their AWS infrastructure.
Today’s announcement extends Alert Logic’s relationship with AWS announced last month with the general availability of Alert Logic Threat Manager and ActiveWatch for AWS. ActiveWatch will also be available in the AWS Marketplace shortly.
Alert Logic’s Security-as-a-Service solutions provide customers four distinct advantages: market-leading security tools, a fully outsourced and managed SaaS delivery model, integrated 24×7 Security Operations Center (SOC) services to monitor and provide expert guidance, and the ability to deploy wherever a customer has IT infrastructure – including the cloud.
