Alert Logic Teams With RigNet To Accelerate Cloud Security

HOUSTON, Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Further accelerating its reputation for cloud security, Alert Logic ( today announced RigNet, Inc. (Nasdaq:RNET), a leading global provider of managed remote communications to the energy industry, has selected the company's Threat Manager and ActiveWatch services to help their oil and gas customers better identify suspicious network traffic and respond quicker to prevent data breaches. 


RigNet offers a broad range of remote managed communications, systems integration and collaborative applications designed to help offshore and onshore drilling rigs, production facilities and energy maritime customers boost uptime and build revenue. The company's 24x7, end-to-end network management and communications environment allows customers to extend offices to any remote location while maintaining access to corporate networks and Internet services. 

"Energy companies' networks are constantly under attack, and it is an extremely complex process to monitor all possible data threats," said Mark Slaughter, RigNet Chief Executive Officer and President.  "Having used Alert Logic's services on our own network, we have seen how highly effective it can be to deliver a better security outcome."

According to a recent article in Fox Business, the U.S. energy sector experienced the largest number of malware attacks of any industry in the spring and summer of 2012. The end result was expensive outages at pipelines, oil refineries and drilling platforms.  Alert Logic's Senior Vice President of Product Development and CTO Dave Colesante explains how his company is helping RigNet insulate its oil and gas customers from network attacks.

"The oil and gas industry must be at a constant state of alert and take a proactive approach to all potential network security threats," said Colesante. "Alert Logic is helping companies such as RigNet better protect the oil and gas industry's data assets, by enabling them with a multitenant, Security-as-a-Service solution, managed through a simple web interface."
