Alert Logic was founded in 2002. It has offices in the US, the UK and Colombia. It maintains two SOCs, one in the US and the other in Cardiff, but can serve any region through its roster of partners. Its machine learning and EDR capabilities were boosted by its acquisition of Barkly at the beginning of 2019.
Alert Logic started out by offering threat intelligence and response services. Since then, it has built a massive-scale telemetry platform that covers the entire threat surface, including endpoint, network and the major public clouds. It is a technology-agnostic, pure-play MDR services provider with the ability to analyse information feeds from whatever technology a customer has in its ecosystem. Its underlying technology is boosted by a large number of expert security practitioners that act as an extension of customers’ teams. Proactive threat hunting is an important part of its offering.
The focus of Alert Logic is on helping organisations to achieve their desired security outcomes, from shielding them from successful attack to helping them to develop a more robust security posture.
