Alert Logic & SunGard Partner to Deliver Security & Compliance Solutions

SunGard Availability Services to add Alert Logic solutions to its Managed Security Services

Alert Logic, a provider of on-demand Security-as-a-Service, announced that SunGard Availability Services will integrate Alert Logic’s solutions for vulnerability assessment, intrusion detection and log management into its current suite of managed security services

SunGard will be able to provide enterprise customers the ability to choose Alert Logic Threat Manager™ and Alert Logic Log Manager™ from its managed services portfolio.  Alert Logic Threat Manager automatically identifies malicious behavior and questionable network patterns originating both inside and outside of a customer’s network. Alert Logic Log Manager collects and archives log data on events relevant to customers’ security. Alert Logic’s 24x7 Managed Security Services, including ActiveWatch and LogReview, provide expert human analysis, review and insight on real-time security threats and alerts.

“This partnership illustrates how we continually strive to offer options for reliable, round-the-clock protection to our customers,” said Rob Walters, vice president of product development at SunGard Availability Services. “Alert Logic is recognized as a leader in managed security services, and their experience provides our customers with enhanced security, monitoring and compliance alternatives.”

Early detection of security threats has become a priority for many organizations after a flurry of attacks this spring. The Ponemon Institute recently found that 78 percent of survey respondents said there has been an increase in the frequency of attacks in the past year and most said attacks have become more severe and difficult to detect and contain.

Alert Logic’s Security-as-a-Service provides SunGard and its enterprise customers four distinct advantages: market leading security tools, a fully managed SaaS delivery model, integrated 24x7 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 SunGard focuses on providing customers uninterrupted access to the IT systems they need in order to do business.”
