Many companies face growing IT security and compliance issues and are increasingly being held responsible for deploying and demonstrating sufficient levels of IT security. Both enterprises and SMBs often seek a single point of contact to help them mitigate a number of security risks through fully-managed security solutions provided by Rackspace. Through the Rackspace and Alert Logic partnership, customers will be offered high levels of IT security and sustainable compliance delivered through a fully integrated and hosted solution. Working in conjunction with Rackspaces existing managed security services, the Alert Logic solution will be offered to Rackspaces customer-base as a combined component of the companys security portfolio.
Our clients are demanding more than check-box security capabilities. They require a real-time view into their security and risk posture, on-demand threat assessment and compliance reports, constant optimization to client specifications and 24x7 monitoring by certified security analysts. We examined available products and services and found Alert Logic provides an outstanding combination of these requirements, said Lew Moorman, senior vice president of corporate strategy and product development. Additionally, no new service offering is added to our portfolio without going through a rigorous evaluation process and meeting our fanatical expectations for customer service. Alert Logic met both of those requirements, and is a real value-add for us.
