Cloud Security

Alert Logic’s MDR solution runs in the leading public cloud platforms, AWS and Microsoft Azure.

Cloud Security is a Shared Responsibility

Cloud providers deliver select security capabilities through their platforms, but you are responsible for fully protecting the data in your cloud environment and achieving security compliance. Alert Logic can help. Our managed detection and response (MDR) solution with a cloud-based approach delivers:

  • Global view of threat activity for unrivaled security across your public cloud IT infrastructure
  • 24/7 security monitoring unmatched by any cloud-based solution provider
  • Dedicated security and threat intelligence team developing signatures, correlation rules, log parsers, and web application security policies

Navigating Public Cloud Security Risks

While the cloud itself is not inherently risky, it’s the area often overlooked from a security perspective that opens organizations up to potential exploitation from cybercriminals.

Today’s cybercriminals use increasingly sophisticated methods to find and infiltrate vulnerable systems. For example, the containers used to host cloud-based servers and databases are susceptible to potential vector attacks, including OS exploits, container breakouts, denial of service, embedded malware, and credential theft that occur when customer-side configurations, access management, and settings aren’t updated on a regular and frequent basis.

Cybercriminals don’t have to work very hard to infiltrate poorly secured cloud systems.

Fortra’s Alert Logic provides a managed solution for cloud security by combining platform, intelligence, and cloud expertise to help organizations protect their cloud, on-premises, or hybrid environment. We are a pioneer in protecting the cloud — we do this by leveraging the security frameworks of cloud providers and giving customers a holistic view of the entire attack surface across hybrid environments.

Alert Logic knew the challenges and benefits built into AWS. I had never seen a company that had actually tied its solution directly into AWS. It seemed like Alert Logic would make for a great partner.
