Alert Logic Cloud Acceleration Partner Program (CAPP) Allows 3rd Party Security Solutions to Be Delivered as a Cloud Service
Technology Partner Program Enables Wide Range of Security Vendors to Join in Delivering First Comprehensive Security-as-a-Service Portfolio for the Cloud
HOUSTON – September 15, 2011 – Alert Logic, the leader in delivering Security-as-a-Service for the cloud, today launched the Cloud Acceleration Partner Program (CAPP), enabling technology partners to deliver their security solutions as fully-managed security services. Participating in Alert Logic’s CAPP allows leading security solution providers to offer their products as cloud-based Security-as-a-Service solutions. Alert Logic’s novel approach to providing Security-as-a-Service through the cloud enables an entire new class of fully-managed cloud-based security offerings for business customers.
Alert Logic announced that Rapid7, the leading provider of security risk intelligence solutions, is a charter CAPP Partner. Rapid7 and Alert Logic have partnered to deliver vulnerability management, enabling Payment Card Industry Approved Scanning Vendor scans delivered as a managed service to the Alert Logic customer base. This service is available through all of Alert Logic’s hosting and cloud service provider partners.
“Delivering vulnerability management as a managed service provides users with a convenient and cost-effective way to gain critical insight into their organization’s security posture. Joining Alert Logic’s CAPP has helped Rapid7 to deliver security risk intelligence to customers in a quick and simple way, while expanding our channels to market,” said Sheldon Malm, senior director of Security Strategy, Rapid7. “We look forward to continuing to work with the Alert Logic team to ensure our joint customers have world-class, fully managed vulnerability management services.”
Powering CAPP is the Alert Logic Security-as-a-Service Platform, which provides rich APIs to ingest, correlate and analyze security data from individual security tools. By integrating with the Alert Logic Security-as-a-Service platform, CAPP partners leverage the power of Alert Logic’s 24x7 Security Operations Center (SOC) for expert human analysis and review, turning security data into actionable insight and recommendations. The Alert Logic Security-as-a-Service Platform provides the necessary integration capabilities and automated processes for CAPP Partners to weave their solutions into the fabric of cloud and service provider operations. CAPP Partners automatically get access to a number of pre-requisites for working with cloud and hosting service providers, including provisioning, decommissioning, support integration, pricing and billing, all presented to customers through a unified Web user interface or integrated with partner self-service portals.
The CAPP brings new channels of distribution to market for security vendors. It also provides enterprises with new and more efficient ways to achieve their security and compliance goals for their IT infrastructure, whether its stays on-premise or resides in the cloud environments of the most recognized names in the service provider industry.
“We expect CAPP to accelerate the move to the cloud by addressing lingering security concerns with a unified and comprehensive set of solutions from industry leaders – all delivered as a managed security service,” said Alert Logic Vice President of Emerging Products, Misha Govshteyn. “By joining CAPP, leading security providers can gain access to Alert Logic’s unique core competencies: our ability to offer their product as a fully managed service from the cloud, and our leading channel of cloud and hosting service provider partners, including more than half of the top 30 service providers in North America.”
All CAPP Partner security solutions will be carefully evaluated and seamlessly integrated with Alert Logic’s suite of leading Security-as-a-Service offerings currently in use by more than 1,500 customers globally. These offerings include Alert Logic Threat Manager™, Alert Logic Log Manager™ and Alert Logic’s Managed Security Services, ActiveWatch and LogReview.
