HOUSTON -- Alert Logic, an award-winning provider of on-demand IT compliance and security solutions, today announced that it has signed a partnership agreement with FusionStorm, a leading systems integrator and managed service provider. FusionStorm, VARBusiness VAR of the year for 2006/7, will become a member of Alert Logics Vanguard Partner Program and the two companies will join forces to deliver Alert Logics IT compliance and security solutions as a key component of FusionStorms remote and hosted managed service offerings.
FusionStorm chose to become a Vanguard Program member because Alert Logics Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) delivery model makes it possible to rapidly deploy and easily manage the threat management, log management and IT compliance automation solutions. The SaaS platform enables FusionStorm to benefit from Alert Logics subscription pricing, which delivers recurring, incremental monthly revenue and higher margins. Also, FusionStorm offers incident response and remediation services as a part of a complete managed solution.
FusionStorm also picked Alert Logic for its security expertise and 24x7 ActiveWatch Monitoring service. As part of the service, expert security analysts in Alert Logics global Security Operations Center (SOC) actively monitor customer networks around-the-clock 365 days a year for threats. Alert Logics compliance expertise with regulations like the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) influenced their choice as well.
In selecting a security and compliance partner, easy deployment and hassle-free maintenance of the solution were crucial, said Vince Conroy, Chief Technology Officer of Fusion Storm. We chose Alert Logic because they had the right combination of advanced security capabilities and overall ease-of-use for our customers, in addition to a partner program that allows us to profit from their unique on-demand platform.
