HOUSTON – August 25, 2021 – Alert Logic today announced a new program that streamlines the onboarding and sales enablement process to help managed security service providers (MSSPs) achieve the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Level 1 MSSP Competency and go-to-market with greater speed and efficiency: Alert Logic Launchpad for AWS MSSPs. Alert Logic partners that achieve this distinction validate their expertise in protecting and monitoring AWS environments 24/7. Mission Cloud Services is the first to complete the Launchpad requirements and achieve AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency status. 

Fast-track Onboarding and Enablement

Alert Logic assists Launchpad participants in developing and submitting AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency technical audit materials. As a result, the Launchpad program cuts the time required to achieve AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency status from 6-12 months to as little as 15 days.
