    Overview

    Accelerate Your Threat Detection & Response

    Your company’s security depends on being able to detect threats and respond to attacks quickly. But most organizations investigate less than 4 percent of all events they receive.

    Alert Logic has a better way.

    • A managed connected solution that brings an award-winning platform, cutting-edge threat intelligence, and expert defenders together
    • Flexible coverage tailored to your individual business needs
    • 24/7 SOC and expert remediation advice
    • Simple pricing with a lower total cost than assembling your own solutions or traditional outsourcing

    Threats do not discriminate between application delivery vectors, requiring an approach that has full visibility into all application traffic, including SSL encrypted content, with full user context. Threat Prevention leverages the visibility of our next-generation firewall to inspect all traffic, automatically preventing known threats, regardless of port, protocol or SSL encryption.
