Alert Logic Opens New European SOC in Cardiff, UK

London, UK - 22 October 2014 - Alert Logic today unveiled its European Security Operations Centre (SOC) in Cardiff, UK. It will be staffed by a team of local security and threat intelligence experts, delivering a fully managed, enterprise-grade service for the Alert Logic suite of network, system and application security technologies.

The opening of our new European SOC, coupled with our recently launched UK datacentre, enables us to be closer to our European customers, delivering them continuous protection, and deep security and compliance insight, no matter where their IT resides, whether it’s in the cloud, on-premises or in a hybrid environment,” said Gray Hall, CEO at Alert Logic.

Welsh Government Economy Minister Edwina Hart said, “I am delighted to welcome Alert Logic to Wales and the technology and expertise they bring. The decision to locate their new European headquarters in Central Cardiff Enterprise Zone sends out a strong, clear message that the city is a prime location for technology companies and can offer all the essential elements for growth including a high-level skills base and infrastructure.”

David Howorth, VP EMEA adds, “Since our initial decision to invest in Wales back in April, we have consistently been impressed with the level of support that we have received from the Welsh Government and the City of Cardiff Council in helping us to establish our operations in the UK. The fact that we have been able to attract and recruit such a large number of highly skilled employees since its initial inception seven months ago, to being fully operational, is testament to the ambitions of the Welsh Government, City of Cardiff Council, Intapeople and the surrounding Universities to cement the region as a UK hub for Cyber security.”
