Valencia, CA (PRWEB) August 13, 2013
Nexus, a leading national provider of professional, cloud and managed services for advanced IT solutions (http://www.nexusis.com), announced today that it will integrate Alert Logic’s solutions for vulnerability assessment, intrusion detection and log management into its current suite of managed security services.
Nexus will be able to provide enterprise customers the ability to choose Alert Logic Threat Manager™, Alert Logic Log Manager™ and Alert Logic Web Security Manager™ from its managed services portfolio. Alert Logic Threat Manager automatically identifies malicious behavior and questionable network patterns originating both inside and outside of a customer’s network. Alert Logic Log Manager collects and archives log data on events relevant to customers’ security. Alert Logic’s 24x7 Managed Security Services, including ActiveWatch and LogReview, provide expert human analysis, review and insight on real-time security threats and alerts. Alert Logic’s Web Security Manager protects websites and business-critical applications from Web application attacks, including zero-day exploits and emerging threats.
“We are always looking to provide more value to our Managed Services customers in our partnerships and our offers,” stated Tom Lyon, SVP of Managed Services. “Nexus consulted with multiple Managed Security as a Service companies and has determined Alert Logic to be the best in class for the solutions they provide. We are pleased to be able to offer Alert Logic’s robust security technologies to our portfolio of Managed Services as we believe they offer a comprehensive solution set that addresses a large part of the markets needs.”
Early detection of security threats has become a priority for many organizations after a flurry of attacks this spring. The Ponemon Institute recently found that 78 percent of survey respondents said there has been an increase in the frequency of attacks in the past year and most said attacks have become more severe and difficult to detect and contain.
Alert Logic’s Security-as-a-Service provides Nexus and its enterprise customers four distinct advantages: market leading security tools, a fully managed SaaS delivery model, integrated 24x7 Security Operations Center (SOC) services to monitor and provide expert guidance, and it is deployable anywhere a customer has IT infrastructure – including the cloud.
“At Alert Logic, we understand service providers, and our Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and managed services were built from the ground up to seamlessly integrate into partner environments and delivery models,” said Gray Hall, president and CEO of Alert Logic. “This partnership allows Alert Logic to focus on protecting enterprise networks while Nexus focuses on providing customers uninterrupted access to the IT systems they need in order to do business.”
