SAN ANTONIO – Jan. 27, 2020 – Rackspace has joined forces with Alert Logic to help SMB and mid-market Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers improve their security posture with an AWS Security Review program.
Rackspace, combined with the insight and analytics of Alert Logic’s SaaS-based Managed Detection and Response (MDR) solution, will offer customers a consulting engagement that provides a window into the state of their environment’s security. By assessing the configuration of their AWS environment against the AWS CIS Foundations Benchmarks, the AWS Security Review program provides a measure of performance against thousands of existing AWS reviews. As an AWS Premier Consulting Partner, Rackspace security experts provide a consultation to review the findings with customers and a customized recommendation plan to remediate gaps for on-going protection.
“Security in the cloud remains especially challenging for SMB and mid-market organizations, due to the huge skills-gap,” said Vikas Gurugunti, Executive Vice President of Rackspace Solutions and Services. “The AWS Security Review provides customers with a fantastic starting point to begin their security transformation. The combined 24×7 support of Rackspace and Alert Logic experts is a critical enabler of keeping customers’ AWS environment secure.”
Upon completion of the security assessment, customers can partner with Rackspace experts to enhance their well-architected AWS environments with Rackspace Service Blocks™, and develop a custom deployment of appropriate security measures, such as Alert Logic MDR solution, to address critical security and compliance requirements. Rackspace Service Blocks offer customers the most value from their AWS investments by providing flexible, customizable services to deliver the right amount of support for their specific IT needs.
