Alert Logic Announces Support for New AWS Security Hub

Andy Jassy, CEO of Amazon Web Services (AWS), announced AWS Security Hub during his keynote presentation at AWS re:Invent. Alert Logic is excited about this new service and proud to announce our support for and integration with AWS Security Hub.

What is AWS Security Hub?

AWS is a vast platform with a massive collection of services available for customers, including AWS security that helps customers protect their workloads through the shared responsibility model. It can be challenging for organizations to monitor and manage security across all their workloads, and even tougher to understand how different pieces of the puzzle fit together to form a holistic view of the entire security posture. Effectively securing workloads on AWS requires being able to see the big picture.

AWS Security Hub is designed to provide users with a comprehensive view of their high-priority security alerts and compliance status by aggregating, organizing, and prioritizing alerts, or findings, from multiple AWS services, such as Amazon GuardDuty, Amazon Inspector, and Amazon Macie as well as security solutions from the AWS Partner Network (APN). The findings are then visually summarized on integrated dashboards with actionable graphs and tables, and help customers follow AWS security best practices.

Alert Logic Integration with AWS Security Hub

Alert Logic is focused on helping organizations with seamless threat management, including support for AWS Security Hub. Our integration is designed to allow AWS Security Hub customers to incorporate verified security incidents from Alert Logic’s 24x7 Security Operations Center (SOC) team. These incidents will include expert analysis and remediation guidance for both security and compliance.

“AWS Security Hub is designed to help AWS customers quickly aggregate, categorize and prioritize the findings of AWS-native security tools that run natively on AWS,” said Chris Noell, Senior Vice President, Engineering at Alert Logic. “We are excited to work with AWS to support AWS Security Hub. AWS Security Hub enhances our existing capabilities to assist customers with their considerations regarding web application security, network vulnerability scanning, log ingestion correlation and reporting on AWS.”

“AWS is designed to allow customers to scale and innovate,” said Dan Plastina, Vice President, Security Services, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “We have worked with Alert Logic to leverage their technology, threat intelligence, and expertise and provide an added layer of security to the already secure AWS Cloud.”

Using Alert Logic with AWS Security Hub

As a Launch APN Partner for AWS Security Hub, Alert Logic’s capabilities will be available to AWS customers through search directly in the AWS Security Hub user interface, with a direct link to purchase them via the AWS Marketplace if they are not yet an Alert Logic customer.
