Alert Logic Launches Security For Amazon Cloud


Alert Logic has introduced intrusion detection for companies selling business services on Amazon's cloud platform.

Houston-based Alert Logic announced Tuesday general availability of Threat Manger, which collects and correlates unusual behavior patterns in applications to identify potential threats.

"Alert Logic’s security-as-a-service offering for Amazon Web Services is a network intrusion solution built from the ground-up to support Amazon EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud) and provide this mandatory component of PCI compliance," Misha Govsteyn, vice president of emerging products at Alert Logic, said in a statement. PCI is the standard used in securing credit card transactions.
