Alert Logic: 'Number Of Cloud Attacks Is Rising'
Threats against the cloud are on the rise, according to Houston-based cloud security company Alert Logic's founder and chief strategy officer, Misha Govshteyn. Govshteyn sat down with CRNtv to talk about the security landscape for cloud computing.
’This year the number of cloud attacks is rising,’ Govshteyn said. That trend can be attributed to the growing number of cloud users. Govshteyn said the numbers indicate that attacks on the cloud are not yet at the level of those on on-premise environments, but he expects threats to grow in 2016.
Alert Logic specializes in helping customers move to the cloud ’in the most secure way possible,’ and the company has seen rapid growth as cloud adoption continues to explode. The company saw 39 percent growth year over year in its third fiscal quarter, which wrapped at the end of last month.
’The dominant trend that we’re seeing is more and more applications are moving to the cloud,’ Govshteyn said.
Alert Logic is also in partner recruitment mode, and wants any company looking to build out its services plays.
’We give any provider out there, or even any company that doesn’t do managed services today, a way to launch a managed service,’ said Govshteyn.
