VISI Partners with Alert Logic to Provide Managed Intrusion Detection Services

MINNEAPOLIS , March 7 /PRNewswire/ -- VISI, Minnesota's largest managed hosting and connectivity provider, is pleased to announce that it now offers a Managed Intrusion Detection Service, in partnership with Alert Logic, a provider of compliance and security solutions based on a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform.

For a company to effectively and securely share critical information with remote users, it takes more than a firewall. With the use of Alert Logic's Threat Manager, VISI combines intrusion detection and vulnerability management into a single integrated solution offering both proactive and reactive protection from the latest threats to business networks.

VISI customers will receive a powerful network surveillance system that is configured, managed and updated on a regular basis by security experts. Typical Intrusion Detection Service products use one or two factors to identify network threats. VISI goes beyond one or two factors with Alert Logic's exclusive Seven-Factor Threat Scenario Modeling detection technology.

"We are thrilled with our partnership with VISI," said Dan Sell , Vice President of Sales at Alert Logic. "They have a reputation for excellence in the Midwest. We look forward to helping VISI's clients solve regulatory and security requirements."

VISI and Alert Logic will be jointly presenting a webinar in March to demonstrate the advantages of the Managed Intrusion Detective Service:
