"Alert Logic was founded by entrepreneurs from the hosting industry, and is run by hosting industry veterans, so we understand the uniqueness of service provider business processes and requirements," said Gray Hall, Alert Logic chairman and CEO. "As such, we designed our company and our products to be compatible with the way service providers operate and deliver value to their customers. The Partner Success Platform is a prime example of this effort."

The Alert Logic Partner Success Platform consists of several formal programs that are driven by Alert Logic in cooperation with each partner. These programs result in streamlined product management, including initial launch of new managed security services in service provider product catalogs; improved demand generation; more productive sales processes; faster provisioning; and seamless operations and support. These programs are further enhanced by new technologies continuously delivered by Alert Logic's product organization, such as Alert Logic's new API, also announced today, designed to facilitate service provider process integration with Alert Logic's Threat Manager and Log Manager products.

Hall added, "We have the most service provider friendly delivery model in the security industry and can demonstrate that we deliver network security and compliance services cheaper than any provider or VAR can on its own. With the introduction of the Partner Success Platform we are taking yet another step to distance ourselves from our competitors and establish Alert Logic as the leading security software company for service providers."
