Rackspace has joined forces with Alert Logic to help Amazon’s SMB customers improve their security posture with a new initiative dubbed the “AWS Security Review” program.
The two companies will leverage Alert Logic’s SaaS-based Managed Detection and Response (MDR) solution to offer customers a consulting engagement that provides a window into the state of their environment’s security. By assessing the configuration of their AWS environment against the AWS CIS Foundations Benchmarks, the program is designed to provide a measure of performance against thousands of existing AWS reviews.
As an AWS Premier Consulting Partner, Rackspace security experts provide a consultation to review the findings with customers and a customized recommendation plan to remediate gaps for on-going protection.
“Security in the cloud remains especially challenging for SMB and mid-market organizations, due to the huge skills-gap,” said Vikas Gurugunti, EVP of Rackspace Solutions and Services. “The AWS Security Review provides customers with a fantastic starting point to begin their security transformation.”
Upon completion of the security assessment, customers can partner with Rackspace experts to enhance their security postures.
“Alert Logic and Rackspace share a long history of partnering to solve complex security challenges for our customers,” said Bob Lyons, CEO of Alert Logic. “By joining forces in this program, we have the scale and expertise to help thousands of AWS customers assess and improve their security posture, enabling them to accelerate their digital transformation and to reduce the risk of disruption from security threats.”
Maintaining strong IT security has emerged as one of the central functions required of today’s channel partners.
