New Offering Simplifies Enormous Data Logs into Consolidated Security Reports
HOUSTON, Texas – Expanding its reputation as the leading provider of Security-as-a-Service solutions for the cloud, Alert Logic (www.alertlogic.com) today announced the availability of its Log Manager for the Windows Azure public cloud environment from Microsoft Corp. The integrated offering runs natively in Windows Azure, on customer premises and in hosted datacenters, providing consolidated data logs within a single pane-of-glass view. Matching the innovation of Windows Azure in hybrid infrastructures with equally flexible deployment options for security, Alert Logic’s Log Manager provides a significant advancement in hybrid cloud security risk mitigation.
Today’s announcement helps alleviate security concerns organizations may have when migrating data to public cloud environments. The fully integrated offering collects and normalizes data from the customer’s applicable cloud environment or on-premises IT infrastructure, while supporting a full range of log files—including Windows, syslog, and flat files. Log results are displayed within an intuitive web interface that also offers pre-built reports, ad-hoc log searches, and powerful analytical tools to help identify potential security breaches. In addition, Alert Logic also makes security experts available to review log files and deliver detailed security reports that satisfy customer’s regulatory requirements.
“IT organizations that are migrating to Windows Azure or planning to run a hybrid IT environment will now be able to use the same security log consolidation and reporting solution across the enterprise,” said Dave Colesante, Alert Logic chief technology officer and senior vice president of product development. “We are pleased to expand our proven SaaS solution to Windows Azure with Log Manager, helping ease transitions to the hybrid cloud environment.”
