Alert Logic's Rapid Growth in 2010 Drives Office Expansion in Houston

Record-Breaking Sales Performance Creates Need for More Staff and More Office Space

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - January 12, 2011) - Alert Logic, the leading provider of log management, intrusion detection and cloud security solutions for enterprises and service providers, today announced its expansion into additional office space at its company headquarters in Houston, prompted by the company's record customer growth in 2010. The additional 6,400 square feet of office space brings the total space at the company's headquarters to over 27,000 square feet. As a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company, Alert Logic has a highly-centralized operating model, with more than 90 percent of company employees residing in its headquarters location. This office expansion gives Alert Logic the headroom needed to support continued rapid growth for the foreseeable future.

"We had an incredible year, highlighted by record-breaking sales," said Gray Hall, president and CEO, Alert Logic. "As we approach our nine year anniversary, we have never had more momentum across the entire company. We are growing, hiring, and adding customers and channel partners at our fastest pace ever. We have ambitious plans for 2011 and beyond, so we are looking for the best software development and security talent in the Houston market."

This office expansion comes on the heels of an impressive year for the company. Other recent achievements Alert Logic has experienced in the past few months include:

  • Establishment of the C.O.R.E. team -- Alert Logic established a team of security experts focused on security research aimed at new threat detection as well as developing processes and product content to provide superior network security for Alert Logic partners and customers. The team also blogs regularly on industry trends, breaking vulnerabilities and security insight on the Alert Logic blog.
  • Expansion of Alert Logic's extensive partner network -- Alert Logic recently added 9 partners, including the previously announced relationships with Tenzing, ExoIS and Perimeter Technology, this after the company surpassed its 50th revenue-producing partner.
  • Industry recognition for company growth -- Again in 2010, Alert Logic ranked on the HBJ FastTech50 list -- the ranking of the fastest-growing technology companies in Houston. Alert Logic came in at #21 for 2009. Alert Logic was also recognized by Deloitte & Touche in their annual Technology Fast 500™, Deloitte's ranking of 500 of the fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America. And, most recently, Alert Logic was included in JMP Securities' 2011 Edition of the "Hot 100," a report that profiles the best privately held software companies identified by the research team at JMP Securities, a full-service investment bank.
