Alert Logic Awarded Patent for Intrusion Detection Solution

Patent Is Latest Addition to Growing Intellectual Property Portfolio

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - January 5, 2010) - Alert Logic, a leading provider of managed security and IT compliance solutions, today announced it has been granted a patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in support of the company's intrusion detection solution, Threat Manager.

The patent, Threat Scoring System and Method for Intrusion Detection Security Networks, covers Alert Logic's unique ability to reliably detect network threats, assign proper threat levels and eliminate false positives that commonly plague other intrusion detection solutions. The patent was issued as number US 7,594,270 B2 by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

"Identifying threats and vulnerabilities that evade perimeter and endpoint defenses is critical to securing any enterprise. However, it's not just about detecting the threats. The real value comes when a customer can understand the impact of each threat so they can prioritize their responses and address the issues that represent the biggest danger," said Gene Golovinsky, vice president of research and development, Alert Logic.

"This patent recognizes that our 7-threat scenario modeling is just one of the many pieces of intellectual property we've developed over the years to bring original solutions to real-world security problems."

In addition to threat management, Alert Logic has also developed innovative approaches to log management with its Log Manager product, whereby logs are collected, parsed, indexed, stored and reported on in near real-time via the company's patent-pending cloud-based processing and storage grid technology. These patented and patent-pending solutions are currently deployed at more than 900 customer locations worldwide.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's award is the latest addition to Alert Logic's growing intellectual property portfolio. Alert Logic currently has multiple additional patents pending with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
