In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

• Alert Logic Cloud Defender is a managed Security-as-a-Service solution that doesn't require the need to add costly hardware, software, and other critical resources.
• Unlike other security services that are designed for specific environments, Alert Logic Cloud Defender works where the business' IT infrastructure resides.
• Alert Logic Cloud Defender provides not only the technology and security experts required to root out critical security issues from enormous amounts of data but it also includes a team of dedicated security researchers whose only responsibility is to find emerging threats and create security rules and content that will protect a business from the identified threats.


Alert Logic Cloud Defender is a fully managed cloud-based security and compliance suite that offers much of the functionality of a managed Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution without the cost and complexity of a traditional, on-premises, in-house SIEM. Delivering the functionality, security content and actionable intelligence that organizations need to uncover and remediate active threats, Alert Logic Cloud Defender protects organizations from cyber threats targeted at business critical infrastructure, wherever it’s deployed – on-premises, in a public cloud or in a hybrid datacenter.

Alert Logic Cloud Defender is a tightly integrated security and compliance suite that provides businesses with deep security insight into their IT environment and continuous protection against attacks, at a fraction of the cost of traditional security solutions. Through a combination of market-leading technologies and human expertise in the form of 24×7 monitoring by security and compliance specialists, Alert Logic Cloud Defender delivers four critical detection and protection capabilities that datacenters require. These include:

• Intrusion detection that identifies and mitigates threats as they move across an organization’s network,
• Vulnerability scanning that inspects servers for known vulnerabilities and misconfigurations that expose them to potential takeover by cyber attackers,
• Web application threat detection that observes traffic destined for web applications identifying malformed requests that are indicative of a web application attack, and,
• Log and security event analysis that, through a combination of threat intelligence and purpose-built correlation rules, can analyze seemingly unrelated log messages from operating systems, applications, databases, and other security products to identify threats.

Additionally, Alert Logic Cloud Defender includes a series of Alert Logic Active Services that provide big data security analytics, security monitoring, threat intelligence research and security content management, resulting in strong protection for customers. These include:

• Alert Logic ActiveAnalytics Platform
• Alert Logic ActiveIntelligence
• Alert Logic ActiveWatch
