CORRECTING and REPLACING Alert Logic Transforms Container Security with Industry’s First Network Intrusion Detection for Containers

Alert Logic delivers unprecedented network visibility to thwart
attacks on containers deployed on AWS including Docker, Elastic
Container Service, Kubernetes and Elastic Beanstalk

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Third paragraph of release dated July 17, 2018, should read: “Deploying
containers can offer several benefits like speeding up development
cycles, increasing resource efficiency, and enabling
easy application portability. That potential translates to
a fast-growing market opportunity that we expect to top $4 billion by
2022,” said 451 Research Principal Analyst Jay Lyman. “Despite
these advantages, some organizations have delayed container adoption
because of security concerns and the difficulty of inspecting and
monitoring container network traffic.”

The corrected release reads:

ALERT LOGIC TRANSFORMS CONTAINER SECURITY WITH INDUSTRY’S FIRST
NETWORK INTRUSION DETECTION FOR CONTAINERS

Alert Logic delivers unprecedented network visibility to thwart
attacks on containers deployed on AWS including Docker, Elastic
Container Service, Kubernetes and Elastic Beanstalk

Alert
Logic
, the leading provider of Security-as-a-Service solutions,
today announced at the AWS Summit, New York, the industry’s first
network intrusion
detection system
(IDS) for containers, available in Alert Logic
Cloud Defender and Threat Manager solutions. This innovation brings
organizations powerful new capabilities to inspect network traffic for
malicious activity targeting containers, and faster detection of
compromises to enhance the security of workloads running on the AWS
Cloud.

The Alert Logic network IDS capability supports containers deployed on
AWS including Docker, Amazon Elastic Container Service, Kubernetes,
CoreOS, and AWS Elastic Beanstalk. Support for additional cloud-deployed
containers will be available before the end of the year. The Alert Logic
incident console can also now display which containers and hosts might
be compromised along with the associated metadata.

“Deploying containers can offer several benefits like speeding up
development cycles, increasing resource efficiency, and enabling
easy application portability. That potential translates to
a fast-growing market opportunity that we expect to top $4 billion by
2022,” said 451 Research Principal Analyst Jay Lyman. “Despite
these advantages, some organizations have delayed container adoption
because of security concerns and the difficulty of inspecting and
monitoring container network traffic.”

“Without real-time detection capabilities, attackers and intruders can
lurk within containers installing trojans, malware, ransomware and
cryptominers or even corrupting and exfiltrating data,” said Chris
Noell, Senior Vice President, Engineering at Alert Logic. “Network
intrusion detection is critical to providing the visibility into
container attacks that other approaches miss. With Alert Logic,
organizations can confidently move forward with their container
deployments knowing that they are protected by the only security
solution in the market that addresses container visibility at the
network layer.”

Customers and Partners Adopt New Network IDS Capabilities for
Containers

Accesso Technology, a best-in-class eCommerce, point of sales and
ticketing solution provider, helps its clients increase sales and
streamline operations and is an early adopter of Alert Logic’s container
security innovation.

“As Accesso continues to focus on our industry-leading technology and
security infrastructure, we need to ensure our containerized environment
is protected without introducing additional complexity,” said William
DeMar, Director, Information Security, Accesso Technology. “With Alert
Logic, we have extended IDS security monitoring and detection to the
container level and have gained more granular visibility into our
container environments across multiple cloud platforms. Alert Logic
partnered with us to get up and running quickly, and their team of
security analysts and consultants proactively escalates incidents so we
can prioritize our team’s efforts.”

Wealth Wizards is another Alert Logic customer using the new network IDS
capability for containers. “We’re writing products our financial
services clients want today, which means we need to build software
really quickly,” said Richard Marshall, Head of Platform, Wealth
Wizards. “We run in a 100% container environment, using Kubernetes and
Docker. Security is a big priority for us, but we need to keep our
engineering team focused on delivering the best experience for our
clients. With Alert Logic we can concentrate on our core business while
being safe in the knowledge we have security experts covering the
operational side for us.”

Logicworks, a cloud automation and managed services company, partners
with Alert Logic and has extended network IDS for containers
capabilities to its customers. “Although container technology
is relatively new, it’s already a ‘go to’ code deployment strategy for
Logicworks,” said Steven Zeller, Vice President, Product Marketing for
Logicworks. “Containers help our customers work smarter, and Logicworks
ensures that our customers’ containers run securely and efficiently on
AWS. Alert Logic’s container
security solutions
give our customers confidence in the continuous
security of their cloud infrastructure.”

Products + Services Approach

The Alert Logic container security solutions work by analyzing the
signature of data packets as they traverse the container environment to
detect cyberattacks in real-time and provide a graphical representation
of the compromised container and its relationships. The intrusion
detection capabilities for containers are fully managed by Alert Logic’s
24×7 security and compliance experts in the company’s Security
Operations Centers. When a container threat is detected, Alert Logic’s
security experts prioritize the threat, proactively escalate within
15-minutes, provide visual context, and offer remediation advice for
customers.
