Valencia, CA (PRWEB) August 13, 2013

Nexus, a leading national provider of professional, cloud and managed services for advanced IT solutions (http://www.nexusis.com), announced today that it will integrate Alert Logics solutions for vulnerability assessment, intrusion detection and log management into its current suite of managed security services.

Nexus will be able to provide enterprise customers the ability to choose Alert Logic Threat Manager, Alert Logic Log Manager and Alert Logic Web Security Manager from its managed services portfolio. Alert Logic Threat Manager automatically identifies malicious behavior and questionable network patterns originating both inside and outside of a customers network. Alert Logic Log Manager collects and archives log data on events relevant to customers security. Alert Logics 24×7 Managed Security Services, including ActiveWatch and LogReview, provide expert human analysis, review and insight on real-time security threats and alerts. Alert Logics Web Security Manager protects websites and business-critical applications from Web application attacks, including zero-day exploits and emerging threats.

We are always looking to provide more value to our Managed Services customers in our partnerships and our offers, stated Tom Lyon, SVP of Managed Services. Nexus consulted with multiple Managed Security as a Service companies and has determined Alert Logic to be the best in class for the solutions they provide. We are pleased to be able to offer Alert Logics robust security technologies to our portfolio of Managed Services as we believe they offer a comprehensive solution set that addresses a large part of the markets needs.

Early detection of security threats has become a priority for many organizations after a flurry of attacks this spring. The Ponemon Institute recently found that 78 percent of survey respondents said there has been an increase in the frequency of attacks in the past year and most said attacks have become more severe and difficult to detect and contain.

Alert Logics Security-as-a-Service provides Nexus and its enterprise customers four distinct advantages: market leading security tools, a fully managed SaaS delivery model, integrated 24×7 Security Operations Center (SOC) services to monitor and provide expert guidance, and it is deployable anywhere a customer has IT infrastructure including the cloud.

At Alert Logic, we understand service providers, and our Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and managed services were built from the ground up to seamlessly integrate into partner environments and delivery models, said Gray Hall, president and CEO of Alert Logic. This partnership allows Alert Logic to focus on protecting enterprise networks while Nexus focuses on providing customers uninterrupted access to the IT systems they need in order to do business.

Web Hosting UK launches Network Monitoring and Alert Service


Leeds,UK (PRWEB UK) 26 June 2013

Web Hosting UK, a leading global provider of web hosting products and services since 2001, announced today the release of its Network Monitoring and Alerting Service. With the new service, website owners can monitor and receive instant alerts on unresponsive web services or server ports along with memory and CPU usage.

WHUKs monitoring has been around for some time, with a proactive internal monitoring set-up initially, the company now offers flexibility to the users by choosing the time period between two checks based on user preference. The system is linked with an alerting mechanism that sends emails instantly after it encounters any flaws over the server and / or services on a particular server which is set for monitoring.

Network monitoring and alerting helps verify the function and performance of different network elements, which we understand to be crucial for any organization, small or large. There has been a rapid expansion within the industry with the introduction of new technologies and features with each changing day. And, when theyre new, they are often prone to breaking something on the server as not all webmasters have experience in setting up and managing them. Therefore, it is important for small and large organizations to protect and monitor their network 24/7 and ensure the delivery of good quality service to the users, stated a representative from WHUK Technical department. With our new and improved monitoring and alerting service, users would get to choose various monitoring intervals from 30 mins (Free) to 1 min. Based on the selected interval, the system would check for selected monitoring parameters and maintain a log for server engineers to analyse. Its integration with mailing system provides instant alert to the WHUK Server Monitoring Team and the client about any performance issues, he added further.
