09/27/17: Cloud Defender in AWS Marketplace | Software Updates


Alert Logic® Cloud Defender® is now available for purchase directly through the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace. Cloud Defender is an advanced suite of security and compliance services for applications and workloads running in AWS. With Cloud Defender, organizations can achieve their security goals with minimal expertise, capital investment, and implementation time.

Two listings are available for Cloud Defender – one for US data residency and one for UK data residency – allowing you to fulfill data residency requirements for compliance. Both listings offer SaaS-based billing, offering customers a unified bill from AWS and providing predictable charges for your security service.

These listings can be accessed in the AWS Marketplace using the following links:
