Rackspace Partners with Alert Logic to Help SMBs Assess AWS and Hybrid Cloud Security

Rackspace has announced a new partnership with Alert Logic to help SMBs and mid-market AWS customers identify and address security issues in their AWS environments.

The partnership will see a new AWS Security Review program offered, which is based on the Alert Logic Managed Detection and Response (MDR) solution. The Security Review gives customers an overview of the security of their AWS environment, by assessing their AWS configuration against AWS CIS Foundations Benchmarks.

Security experts at Rackspace will then offer a consultation to customers to review the findings of the analysis and will provide recommendations on how security gaps can be addressed to provide ongoing protection. This program will be particularly valuable for SMB customers, who likely lack the in-house skills to perform comprehensive security reviews of their AWS and hybrid cloud environments.

“The AWS Security Review provides customers with a fantastic starting point to begin their security transformation. The combined 24×7 support of Rackspace and Alert Logic experts is a critical enabler of keeping customers’ AWS environment secure,” said Vikas Gurugunti, Executive Vice President of Rackspace Solutions and Services.

After completing the security assessment, customers can partner with Rackspace to enhance their AWS deployments with Rackspace Service Blocks and deploy security measures to keep their AWS environments secure, such as Alert Logic’s MDR solution, to reduce the risk of disruption from security threats and to accelerate their digital transformation.
