New VP Completes Management Team and Bolsters Service Provider and Security DNA

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - May 24, 2010) -  Alert Logic, the leading provider of cloud-powered security solutions including log management, intrusion detection and vulnerability assessment for enterprises and IT service providers, today appointed industry veteran Urvish Vashi as its vice president of marketing. In this role, Vashi is responsible for marketing strategy and execution along with product management.

Vashi joins Alert Logic with 15 years of experience in IT and managed hosting services. Previously, Vashi held leadership roles in both product management and marketing at ThePlanet.com Internet Services and Navisite (formerly Interliant), both IT service providers. Further, Vashi was responsible for product management at Symantec and NetIQ in their security and compliance product groups.
