What Our Customers Say

"Tango immediately saw the benefits after the Alert Logic team of experts detected attack patterns coming from China and made recommendations to our Tango team on how to address them. We implemented those recommendations immediately to ensure none of the traffic coming from that area could have access to our system."

Bill Thornton, Vice President, Tango

"We would have needed multiple vendors to be able to do what we are doing with just Alert Logic. If I were talking to one of my colleagues in the industry who is looking for a cybersecurity solution, I would recommend Alert Logic, hands down. I’ve never seen such a comprehensive cybersecurity solution ever."
