With the rapid adoption of cloud computing and hybrid IT environments, organizations are looking for security and compliance solutions which can be easily deployed and managed across both on-premises and cloud environments. The updated versions of Alert Logic Threat Manager and Alert Logic Web Security Manager provide a singular hybrid security solution to address the different threats that cloud and on-premises infrastructures face, with tools that perform in both environments.

"Alert Logic's suite of security and compliance solutions are easy to use and designed to protect my mission-critical applications and infrastructure within my evolving datacenter," said Mike Goode, Vice President and CIO, Retirement Clearinghouse. "The deep insight into activity within my environment and continuous protection delivered by Alert Logic's products and security operations center (SOC) have increased our security and compliance posture while also increasing my team's productivity."

The latest edition of Alert Logic Threat Manager provides customers with an easier way to manage their hybrid IT environments by delivering consistent capabilities and user experience through a single Intrusion Detection System

(IDS) and vulnerability scanning platform; this eliminates the need to deploy and manage multiple solutions in different IT environments. In addition, Alert Logic's physical appliances now support network traffic in excess of 10Gbps for on-premises IT; as network traffic in any environment grows, Alert Logic Threat Manager scales to meet the requirements of the growing IT infrastructure.

"We needed an Intrusion Detection System (IDS) to safeguard data that would scale with us in any environment," said Joel Confino, CEO Haydle. "The Alert Logic Threat Manager solution was quickly deployable through AWS Marketplace and delivers what we need for network security with a single solution."

Alert Logic also announced that Alert Logic Web Security Manager is now available for direct purchase in the AWS Marketplace, enabling fast and easy web application security via their Web Application Firewall (WAF). This gives buyers additional access to benefits specific to the AWS Marketplace, like usage-based billing, and continues support for Auto Scaling, which was released in Q4 2013.

"As hybrid IT options expand, we remain committed to delivering solutions for new cloud environments while continuing to support customers with on-premises assets," said Dave Colesante, Alert Logic Senior Vice President of Product Development and CTO. "As the datacenter continues to evolve, we look to optimize security solutions wherever they are deployed."
