Alert Logic Continues Customer and Revenue Growth in 2009

Strong Performance Driven by Successful Channel Partnerships and Customer Adoption Tied to Increased Focus on Moving IT Infrastructure to the Cloud

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - January 25, 2010) - Alert Logic, the smartest choice for securing networks and ensuring compliance, today announced that it continued its strong record of revenue and customer growth into the second half of 2009. Alert Logic grew revenue by 52% to $10.8 million in calendar 2009, and increased customer count by 45%. The results were driven by the successful execution of Alert Logic's strategy to enable service providers to deliver cloud-powered network security and compliance solutions.

"Businesses are facing increasingly complex and burdensome compliance and security requirements, and these trends will continue into 2010," said Alert Logic president and CEO Gray Hall. "Our unique cloud-powered delivery model allows us to offer a truly complete solution to our customers, and our unique breadth of service provider channel partners gives us incredible market reach."

Alert Logic's customer growth spanned a wide range of industries including energy, technology, healthcare and retail. As anticipated, compliance requirements, especially Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance, drove much of this growth. In fact, more than 60% of customers are using Alert Logic's solutions to comply with regulatory mandates, and more than 75% of those customers are specifically addressing PCI requirements. For example, any company handling credit card data must comply with the PCI Data Security Standard. Alert Logic's cloud-powered IT compliance and security solutions are designed to allow merchants to meet several critical PCI requirements easily and cost-effectively.

In addition to compliance requirements, Alert Logic's channel program targeting IT service providers continues to be a key factor in the company's rapid growth. Alert Logic's managed solutions that combine intrusion protection, vulnerability assessment, log management and 24x7 threat surveillance are designed for service providers such as hosting providers, MSPs, and VARs.

"Our strategy has us at the intersection of two notable trends -- the movement of IT infrastructure to the cloud, and the requirement for a high level of network security to ensure regulatory compliance," Hall added. "Because of this, our channel partnerships present a significant opportunity for Alert Logic as these service providers have a heightened interest in quickly productizing and launching new services to address this demand."

In addition to solid customer and partner growth, Alert Logic added to the recognition it received earlier in the year with additional industry accolades in the second half of 2009. Alert Logic was honored with the Fast Tech 50 award, which recognizes revenue growth. It was also named a finalist for SC Magazine's Reader Trust Awards in the Best Security Information/Event Management (SIM/SEM) Solution category.
