Unified Security Management Provider Recognized as an Innovator for Extending Security Visibility to the Cloud
San Mateo, Calif. (May 21, 2013) – AlienVault, the leading Unified Security Management provider committed to making security visibility complete, simple and affordable, announced today that it has been recognized as one of the AlwaysOn OnDemand Top 100 private companies for the second consecutive year. AlienVault is being honored for creating new business opportunities and disrupting the cloud infrastructure industry. In addition to being honored, the company’s CEO, Barmak Meftah, will speak on the “What It Takes to be a Rising Star” panel at the AlwaysOn OnDemand event on May 21.
“Critical information is often spread across a multitude of different environments – in the cloud, in the data center, or on-premise – making it difficult for companies to secure crucial assets,” said Barmak Meftah, President and CEO of AlienVault. “Our Unified Security Management platform provides the security visibility necessary to secure data wherever it is stored—we can literally follow our customers into any environment they want to use to house their data. Certainly, no other SIEM solution can provide this level of deployment flexibility.”
AlienVault’s Unified Security Management (USM) platform provides users with five essential security capabilities including asset discovery, vulnerability assessment, threat detection, behavioral monitoring and security intelligence in a single, unified solution and management console. The USM platform is totally unique in its ability to deliver these security capabilities wherever an organization’s data resides; whether in the cloud or in the data center, AlienVault USM provides the security monitoring and visibility that can often hold businesses back from taking advantage of the cost and flexibility benefits of the cloud.
Fellow OnDemand Top 100 company GoGrid uses AlienVault’s USM platform to enhance its offerings. The infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) provider has partnered with AlienVault to expand its cloud solutions to include a security-as-a-service offering based on AlienVault USM.
“AlienVault USM gives our cloud partners the ability to provide an award-winning compliance and threat management solution as a service, and our customers the security monitoring and visibility they need to ensure their cloud-based solutions are highly secure,” added Meftah. “We understand the benefits of the cloud, and want our partners and customers to be able to embrace the cloud without sacrificing security visibility and control.”
AlienVault and the other AlwaysOn OnDemand Top 100 Winners will be honored at AlwaysOn's OnDemand event on May 20-21, 2013, at Hewlett-Packard's Executive Briefing Center in Palo Alto, Calif.
