Alert Logic Cloud Acceleration Partner Program Goes Live
Alert Logic has officially launched the Alert Logic Cloud Acceleration Partner Program (CAPP). Alert Logic claims the partner program gives MSPs and VARs a comprehensive Security-as-a-Service portfolio for the cloud. The program is intended to help the company’s tech partners offer cloud-based, fully-managed security services and create new distribution opportunities for security vendors.
Alert Logic put the spotlight on its integration efforts with service providers in June of 2011. That’s also when we first got a hint a new initiative was brewing, as Alert Logic Vice President of Marketing Urvish Vashi told me to expect more agreements with service providers coming down the pipe within the next few months. Since then, we’ve also heard about Alert Logic’s continued growth.
Alert Logic will evaluate each CAPP members’ security solutions. Then it will integrate those solutions with Alert Logic’s Security-as-a-Service platform. The goal is to help members offer a more comprehensive managed services solution to their business end-users through a cloud environment. Alert Logic’s Security-as-a-Service suite includes Alert Logic Threat Manager, Alert Logic Log Manager, Alert Logic Managed Security Services, ActiveWatch and Log Review. CAPP partners will also have access to provisioning tools, decommissioning tools, support integration and pricing and billing solutions either through an Alert Logic user interface (UI) or through individual partner self-service portals.
We don’t have a full list of the charter Alert Logic CAPP members, but we do know that Rapid7, a security risk intelligence company, was mentioned in the Alert Logic press release as a CAPP member. I’ll be speaking with Alert Logic executives a little later this week to get a broader list of charter members and learn a little bit more about the requirements to become an Alert Logic CAPP member.
