Enterprise-grade service for the company’s suite of network, system and application security technologies.
In a bid to cater to rising demand from European customers, the British Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider Alert Logic has opened its new European Security Operations Centre (SOC) in Cardiff.
It will employ a team of local security and threat intelligence professionals to deliver a managed, enterprise-grade service for the company’s suite of network, system and application security technologies.
Alert Logic CEO Gray Hall said: "IT teams are not resourced to adequately respond to the marked increase in security and cyber-attack threats.
"The opening of our new European SOC, coupled with our recently launched UK datacentre, enables us to be closer to our European customers, delivering them continuous protection, and deep security and compliance insight, no matter where their IT resides, whether it’sin the cloud, on-premises or in a hybrid environment."
The company’s SOC is aimed at converting raw security event data into actionable insights to deliver valuable perspective on global threat activity that dramatically increases the security and compliance posture of any organisation.
The Alert Logic Research team will search several sources of intelligence and examine multiple threat intelligence feeds and offer complete security content to the Alert Logic Cloud.
Hall added: "While the Alert Logic SOC provides around the clock security monitoring, daily log review, web application firewall management and advanced anomaly detection, the research team is hard at work researching emerging threats, reviewing threat trends and creating new security content that feeds the Alert Logic platform."
