NaviSite® Leverages New Alert Logic Solutions for the Complex Security Needs of Enterprise Cloud Customers

New Offerings Reduce Complexity of Securing Cloud and Hosted Infrastructures

ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwired - Aug 14, 2013) -  NaviSite, Inc., a Time Warner Cable Company and premier provider of enterprise-class hosting, managed applications, managed messaging and managed cloud services, today announced it has added Web Security Manager, the first fully managed web application firewall (WAF) service to its existing integrated portfolio of security solutions from Alert Logic, a leading provider of Security-as-a-Service solutions for the cloud.

NaviSite offers its customers simplified managed security solutions from Alert Logic, which include enterprise-class services that are fully monitored and managed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. These solutions are available to NaviSite's customers through an as-a-Service model, meaning customers are charged a predictable low monthly fee, and service is implemented without requiring capital investments, unexpected expenses or the burden of managing staff and technology. Through NaviSite's partnership with Alert Logic, businesses can access data centers with the highest quality security technology, along with the support of NaviSite's "army of experts." This customized support comes from cloud experts with decades of experience working across thousands of hosted environments.

In addition, Alert Logic's innovative offerings integrate seamlessly into NaviSite's existing hosted and cloud environments and are delivered through a customized offering based on the needs of each individual business.

The addition of Web Security Manager enables NaviSite to build onto several of its security technologies and services including:

  • Network-Intrusion Detection and Prevention: Via the Alert Logic Threat Manager solution, NaviSite deploys network security in any hosted or cloud environment -- irrespective of hypervisor and networking architecture -- and identifies threats found in network traffic.
  • Real-Time Log Flow Analysis: Utilizing the Alert Logic Log Manager application, NaviSite boosts real-time security monitoring of critical security logs -- alerting users of critical security issues, in some cases even in advance of a breach.
  • Web Application Security: Through the NaviCloud platform, Web Security Manager delivers critical web protection and cost-effective management, as well as state-of-the-art firewall protection and blocking capabilities.

"Our continued work with Alert Logic to deploy best-in-class security technology, software-as-a-service delivery and an around-the-clock Security Operations Center ensures that our customers are fully prepared to prevent and deal with threats," said Chris Patterson, vice president, product management, NaviSite. "Partnering with Alert Logic gives our customers peace of mind, and the comprehensive support to implement the latest security solutions demonstrates NaviSite's commitment to customizing solutions to fit our customers' unique security needs."

"We have partnered with NaviSite for years to help its customers meet the security and compliance challenges they face," said Dave Colesante, Alert Logic's senior vice president of product development and CTO. "Our security services have become a seamless extension of NaviSite's managed cloud offering, enabling their customers to reap the benefits of a cloud infrastructure without compromising on security. This demonstrates how our service can become a valuable enhancement to any cloud-based offering, while underscoring the need to insulate IT assets in a cost-effective and absolute manner."
