Alert Logic Earns Top Accolades in SC Magazine Review

Intrusion Protection and Vulnerability Product Yields Fastest Critical Alert Response Time in Managed Security Services Test

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - January 4, 2010) - Alert Logic, an award-winning provider of cloud-based IT compliance and security solutions, today announced that Threat Manager, its intrusion protection and vulnerability management solution, ranked first out of nine managed security service vendors evaluated in an SC Magazine lab review for critical alert response time. Threat Manager provides a 3.5 minute critical alert response time to network threats and security incidents, more than 40 percent faster than the next closest vendor.

The review, which appears in the September 2009 issue of SC Magazine, evaluated managed services of intrusion detection (IDS) and intrusion prevention systems (IPS) on the basis of user interface, service level agreement, user documentation, response times and specifications. Threat Manager earned the magazine's top ratings for being easy to use and offering a high level of network security through its Active Watch Monitoring Service.

"When your customers rank among the biggest retailers, financial services providers, oil and gas companies and medical institutions as ours do, a few minutes can mean the difference between a global security disaster -- or a disaster easily averted," said Gray Hall, CEO of Alert Logic. "We're thrilled to be recognized by SC Magazine as one of the industry's top providers of managed services for IDS and IPS, an honor that validates our ongoing innovation and quality of service in the security space."

Threat Manager with ActiveWatch Monitoring Service combines intrusion protection and vulnerability management into a single integrated solution that offers proactive and reactive protection from the latest threats. Analysts in Alert Logic's global Security Operations Center provide 24/7 monitoring of security events and alerts across customer sites worldwide, leveraging the company's expert threat modeling system to correlate, process and analyze threats before they become serious risks -- or distracting false alarms.
