Security compliance isn’t easy nor is it optional. Each regulation related to data protection and privacy an organization must comply with has its own nuances that must be met, tracked, recorded, and ready to withstand an audit. And depending on your industry, it’s not just one regulation, or two, but a myriad of regulations to ensure protection for organizations, individuals, and industry groups from breaches and data loss.

Managing security compliance internally can be both cost prohibitive from a technology and people perspective and a struggle for employees who don’t have the skills, training, or expertise to make sure compliance is achieved.

Achieving better outcomes and continuous security compliance is within reach with Fortra’s Alert Logic Managed Detection and Response (MDR). Without the need to add internal staff, your organization can achieve compliance quickly and with minimal disruption to your business. Our compliance solution is adaptable for your hybrid, cloud, and on-premises environment today and as they change, helping you stay a step ahead of requirements, mandates, and audits.

Why Choose Alert Logic for Security Compliance?

With an Alert Logic MDR solution, you can quickly advance your security compliance strategy without the lag time you would experience if you brought on new team members needing to be fully onboarded and launching technology to internally manage compliance. No longer will you be a step behind in the ever-evolving landscape of laws and standards or weighed down by policy mapping. With the industry’s most comprehensive MDR coverage, our expert team works with you 24/7 to quickly ensure you’re ready for any compliance audits with audit-ready reports that meet all requirements and mandates as well as satisfy auditors.
