NEI Helps Companies Take Advantage of Appliance Deployment

By Susan J. Campbell, TMCnet Contributing Editor


More people are using mobile devices, and more companies are tying their networks and their fortunes to cloud computing. With this growth comes more opportunities for hackers to damage the enterprise, and hackers never sleep. Some security appliance vendors may not understand proper appliance deployment and that any breaks in the firewall, equipment downtime, or lags in support mean data is at risk.

Alert Logic is a company that provides security solutions for more than half of the world’s largest managed hosting and cloud computing providers. As a result, Alert Logic requires flexible deployment options no matter the computing environment as well as advanced appliance deployment. This is why the company reached out to NEI (News - Alert) to help create a turnkey appliance with the right level of support and flexibility.

Chris Tabor, director of service support with Alert Logic, said in this video that his company has seen growth opportunities in three main areas. These areas are additional channel partners, more geographies, and definitely more products. The company recently launched its newest product line of Web application security management solutions. Alert Logic is really looking forward to working with NEI (News - Alert) to get this appliance deployment product into the field and see what customers think of it.

NEI has been a force multiplier for Alert Logic, says Tabor. NEI helps the company with the upfront design of its hardware platform, providing process control for predictive quality of deployed appliances. Ongoing visibility is key to business processes and successful delivery of world-class support for all appliance deployments.

In the last year, Alert Logic has grown by 40 percent, and NEI has been able to easily support that growth, demonstrating its value as an industry partner. As an industry leader, NEI is responsible for application platforms, lifecycle deployment services and more for software developers in security, communications, and storage.

Depending on whether it is a physical or virtual application environment, NEI gives software vendors and other OEMs the ability to develop and securely deploy solutions. Clients are able to utilize the application management services that easily centralize OS and patch management, increase advantages for distinct competition, accelerate deployments, and consolidate support processes.
