The emergence of technologies such as IoT, cloud computing has drastically changed the dynamics of how enterprises functions in their respective markets. In an evolutionary milestone, companies following the traditional approach towards executing processes such as accounting, information management, and logistics, to name a few, through manual techniques has migrated to real-time web-based services. This rapid transition has fuelled concerns about critical issues such as regulation and compliance needs, and security aspects. So, it’s the responsibility of organizations to ward off hackers, secure employees as well as customer data, and maintain a resilient security culture in their operating environment. To achieve these, Alert Logic steps-in with a SIEMless threat management platform that protects the client’s data from evolving threats, expanding compliance requirements, and resource constraints.

“We would have needed multiple vendors and sources to be able to do what we are doing with just Alert Logic,” mentions Lee Ramsey, Co-founder of Pre-Fi, one of Alert Logic’s clients. The product offerings from Alert Logic consists of an efficient security based platform, a cutting-edge threat intelligence, which is developed by an expert defender team and the same is deployed into the client’s workflows. It helps to obtain effectiveness in their security analysis along with simplicity in their working procedure. The unique proprietary tech-stack from Alert Logic such as intrusion detection systems, dark web scanning, and web application firewall, to name a few provides high-end and precise security solutions to achieve comprehensive and tuned security coverage at enterprise grade. Along with that, the company’s offerings scale down the vulnerability foundation and imparts asset visibility via 24/7 threat detection—ultimately providing a comprehensive web application firewall to the client database.
To minimize the surface level attacks, Alert Logic enables DevOps and security team with SaaS solutions to run internal, external, and PCI (payment card industry) vulnerability scans. The reports generated will be provided towards on-premises, cloud, as well as hosted environments along with continuous updates of more than 99,000 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs) in software as well as certain network components.

Furthermore, Alert Logic offers three levels of security, compliance coverage for workloads and infrastructure to minimize the false positive results, improve true positive output, and provide more contexts in their operation. During this process, “signature and rules” are used to inspect data and exploit the patterns to recognize commonly known vulnerabilities in web applications. Real-time identification and anomaly detection help in determining the unusual behavior and responses beyond the normal range. By leveraging machine learning algorithm, the results captured are refined and classified to detect signature or anomaly parameters. Later, the expert defenders from the Alert Logic’s Security Operations Center (SOC) generates 24/7 actionable incident report, monitors real-time customers’ environment, and provide guidance to eradicate those threats.

Unlike other players, what sets Alert Logic apart is their uniqueness in deploying their offerings into the client’s base. “With our approach, customers don’t need to install and configure agents, manage data feeds, wade through alerts, or spend years trying to get value from an event console. We call it SIEMless threat management because it breaks the paradigm in cybersecurity,” says Bob Lyons, Chief Executive Officer, the company. The novelty of its proprietary research helps to understand vulnerabilities and attack behaviors across different layer of infrastructure, which additionally helps in gaining mainstream security and compliance coverage to handle client’s workloads across any environment. Also, the state-of-the-art threat analytics sharing a common set of tools helps in continuous development and improvement in their operation process.

With such multi-pronged solutions, Alert Logic is revolutionizing the security landscape. In the future, the company is looking forward to implementing new roll-outs that further reduces the cost and expose dangerous gaps that are prone to malware attacks.
