Alert Logic Partners with Mitsui for Japan Expansion

Global business conglomerate to deliver Alert Logic Security-as-a-Service solutions to companies in Japan

TOKYO & HOUSTON – June 1, 2016Alert Logic, the leading provider of Security-as-a-Service solutions for the cloud, today announced at the AWS Summit in Tokyo, Japan a strategic partnership with Mitsui & Co., Ltd. to bring Alert Logic’s Security-as-a-Service solutions to start-ups, small- and medium-sized businesses and enterprises across Japan.

The partnership will help facilitate Alert Logic’s continued global expansion and provide cybersecurity to a diverse set of organizations in Japan, regardless of whether their IT infrastructure resides in the cloud, on-premises or in a hybrid environment.

“Mitsui is a trusted global leader and this is a pivotal step in bringing Alert Logic’s market-leading cybersecurity solutions to companies across Japan,” said Gray Hall, CEO of Alert Logic.  “This strategic partnership will expose more organizations to our unique Security-as-a-Service approach that helps to secure business critical IT infrastructures.”

Mitsui will leverage its security subsidiary, Mitsui Bussan Secure Directions (MBSD), to deliver Alert Logic’s cybersecurity solutions in Japan.  MBSD is the leading cybersecurity company in Japan providing managed security services; vulnerability assessment and testing; security consulting and operation outsourcing; incident response and handling, and digital forensics.

“Traditional managed security will be shifting to services provisioned from high-level security operation centers with parsing technology and comprehensive discerning capability,” said Toshio Kanki, CEO of MBSD. “Our partnership with Alert Logic will provide these services to the Japanese market to fight against ever-advancing cyber threats.”

As part of the overall strategic relationship, Mitsui made a capital investment in Alert Logic. Alert Logic reported 40 percent year-over-year growth at the end of 2015 and exceeded an annualized revenue run-rate of $100 million in Q1 of 2016.
