Companies Partner to Bring Alert Logic Cloud Defender Technology to Blue Box Cloud

Blue Box Cloud
Alert Logic Cloud Defender enables Blue Box to deliver private cloud-as-a-service solutions to its customers knowing that their data and their customers’ customers’ data will be safe and secure.

Blue Box has teamed with Alert Logic to bring Cloud Defender—the company’s cloud security technology—to Blue Box Cloud customers.

Blue Box, a Seattle-based provider of on-demand OpenStack-powered hosted and on-prem private cloud-as-a-service solutions, is working with Alert Logic to integrate its Threat Manager product into the Blue Box Cloud lineup. Blue Box selected Alert Logic due to its flexible deployment architecture, specifically its ability to work with both bare-metal instances and in virtualized environments with consistent performance.

“Alert Logic has a full-featured security operations center staffed with security and compliance experts who understand not only their product, but also the attack surface that cloud environments face,” said Hernan Alvarez, chief product officer at Blue Box. “Like us, they’ve been in the operations business for 10+ years, plus they have mature products and an impressive collection of accumulated expertise in threat detection and response. This partnership extends our reach into an important new product feature set, amplifying the value we deliver to our customers.”

Alert Logic Cloud Defender is a fully managed cloud-based suite of security and compliance solutions for hybrid IT infrastructure. It is designed to simplify security operations without requiring companies to bring a substantial security staff and infrastructure in-house which necessitates large capital investments, lengthy implementation cycles and heavy training requirements. In addition, Alert Logic has a simple, pay-as-you-go subscription model.

”Alert Logic Cloud Defender enables Blue Box to deliver private cloud-as-a-service solutions to its customers knowing that their data and their customers’ customers’ data will be safe and secure,” said Brian Forbes, vice president of partner and Americas field marketing for Alert Logic. “With all the functionality of a managed Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution, Alert Logic Cloud Defender provides businesses with deep security insight into their IT environment and continuous protection against attacks, at a fraction of the cost of traditional security solutions.”
