Datapipe Enhances Cloud Security with Alert Logic Threat Manager
Security Operations Center Seamlessly Integrated Into Datapipe’s Stratosphere® Cloud Platform
Jersey City, NJ, January 9, 2014 – Cloud security innovators, Datapipe and Alert Logic, today announced the seamless integration of Alert Logic’s Threat Manager into Datapipe’s Stratosphere® cloud computing platform. The combination of the two solutions provide a single pane-of-glass to view and respond to suspicious network traffic such as Botnets, Malware, Trojans, Worms and other threats which may be harmful to IT assets.
“The integration of Alert Logic’s Threat Manager directly into Stratosphere®, enables industry leading threat monitoring coupled with Datapipe’s incident response and world class support,” said Ed Laczynski, SVP Cloud Services of Datapipe. “As the market shifts towards cloud infrastructure, we want to ensure the same security vigilance that we offer to customers across our entire IT services portfolio. Our elastic, API-driven cloud coupled with Alert Logic’s Threat Manager enhances the overall security of our customers’ data for public, private, and hybrid deployments.”
By 2015, 10 percent of overall IT security enterprise product capabilities will be delivered in the cloud, according to Gartner, Inc. The services are also driving changes in the market landscape, particularly around a number of key security technology areas, such as secure email and secure Web gateways, remote vulnerability assessment, and Identity and Access Management (IAM).
Today’s announcement exemplifies Gartner’s assessment by making 24/7 network threat detection a built-in feature to Datapipe’s cloud-based services. Alert Logic’s Security Operation Center (SOC) analysts will identify potential problems using intelligent multifactor correlation to notify Datapipe’s cloud customers with recommended actions. Alert Logic will escalate to Datapipe support personnel for remediation as needed. Additional features of the new Stratosphere® and Threat Manager integration include:
- Easy single-sign-on login within Datapipe’s cloud management portal
- Unified, global view of multiple cloud (public, private, hybrid) and traditional infrastructure environments and their associated security controls
- Network security for any cloud environment irrespective of hypervisor or networking architecture
- Detection of external and internal threats
- Intrusion detection and vulnerability scanning to address key elements of PCI DSS, HIPAA/HITECH, GLBA, Sarbanes-Oxley and other mandates
- Support for autoscaling instances, VM-to-VM traffic monitoring, automation and APIs to integrate into cloud orchestration systems
“In order to properly view and address threats impacting the IT infrastructure, organizations typically incur a considerable cost,” said Dave Colesante, senior vice president of product development and CTO, Alert Logic. “The combination of our two solutions addresses this issue by embedding a world-class security operations center inside Datapipe’s elastic cloud offering.”
Stratosphere® is Datapipe’s globally available, high-performance managed cloud computing platform, designed to meet enterprise requirements for governance, usability, compliance and interoperability. The Stratosphere® cloud management portal enables self-service cloud environments, cloud diversity in conjunction with the AWS ecosystem, as well as hybrid cloud options featuring Datapipe’s managed hosting, compliance and security services.
Threat Manager leverages Alert Logic’s patented expert system, driven by global threat data, to identify potential problems for Alert Logic analysts to investigate. When Alert Logic Threat Manager detects an incident, Alert Logic’s ActiveWatch service provides expert guidance from its Security Operations Center (SOC), staffed around the clock by Alert Logic security analysts. This system is used to observe billions of security events annually, and verify tens of thousands of security threats that require a response.
