Alert Logic has launched end-to-end security solutions for the Microsoft (MSFT) Azure cloud platform. The company said its most recent release is an expansion of its existing Log Manager for Microsoft Azure and is designed to deliver application, network and system security for workloads running on the Microsoft Azure public cloud.

The Alert Logic security solution runs natively in the Microsoft Azure cloud, on customer premises and in hosted data centers. More than 2,200 customers currently leverage Alert Logic’s security-as-a-service model, and the company’s Microsoft Azure additions could provide its customers with more flexibility going forward.

“We are excited to provide Microsoft Azure customers with a suite of security and compliance solutions that allow them to migrate their applications to the Microsoft Azure cloud with complete confidence in their security posture,” Rohit Gupta, Alert Logic’s vice president of business development, said in a prepared statement. “This will give more and more businesses the ability to stay secure, compliant and use their internal resources to focus on their business, not their security.”

In a prepared statement, Alert Logic said its new Microsoft Azure security solutions could help customers meet their security and compliance requirements with a single solution across cloud and hybrid IT environments.

“Security and compliance are top priorities of Microsoft Azure customers,” Vibhor Kapoor, Microsoft’s director of product marketing, said in a prepared statement. “We’re pleased that Alert Logic’s security suite gives customers the option of an additional layer of network and application security designed specifically for the Azure cloud.”

Some of the features of Alert Logic’s security solutions include:

  • 24×7 security operations center

  • Cloud-based delivery model

  • Software-as-a-service-based (SaaS-based) big data analytics and correlation engine

Meanwhile, Alert Logic continues to grow. The company recently announced it achieved 35 percent year-over-year revenue growth in the first quarter of 2014, and its annualized revenue under contract in March exceeded $56 million.
