CIO Solutions to add Alert Logic solutions to its line of Managed Security Services

HOUSTON – August 15, 2012 – Alert Logic, a leader in delivering on-demand Security-as-a-Service, announced that CIO Solutions will integrate Alert Logic’s Web Security Manager into its current suite of managed security services.

CIO Solutions will be able to provide enterprise customers with fully managed protection from web application attacks. Web Security Manager analyzes incoming traffic and protects applications from dangers such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting. With a powerful intuitive learning engine, Web Security Manager analyzes web traffic and develops new security policies to provide stronger protection. In addition, Web Security Manager provides customers with immediate PCI DSS requirement 6.6 compliance.

Eric Egolf, President of CIO Solutions, sees incredible value in partnering with Alert Logic, “Increasing our portfolio of Security Platforms with partnerships like Alert Logic will continue to allow us to be at the leading edge of Network Security in the Tri-Counties region.”

Web application attacks have become one of the most prevalent IT security threats. Alert Logic’s Spring 2012 State of Cloud Security Report found that seven out of ten customers had experienced web application attacks, on average 40 times per year. These attacks are behind many high profile breaches of sensitive data.

Alert Logic’s Security-as-a-Service provides CIO Solutions and its enterprise customers four distinct advantages: a market leading web application firewall, a fully managed SaaS delivery model, integrated 24×7 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 CIO Solutions focuses on providing customers uninterrupted access to the IT systems they need in order to do business.”
