Houston, TX, United States, 2016/04/15 - Alert Logic, the leading provider of Security-as-a-Service solutions for the cloud, announced that it acquired Austin-based Click Security - ClickSecurity.com / Alertlogic.com.
The real-time security analytics provider brings complementary threat detection and incident analysis capabilities, bolstering Alert Logic’s existing security analytics and threat detection solutions, and contributing additional security and engineering talent to the company.

Click Security’s cybersecurity solutions go beyond traditional security defenses, such as firewalls, anti-virus software and intrusion prevention systems, to find and halt attacks. The company provides real-time security analytics that enable businesses to detect subtle changes in behavior that are often the signs of an advanced attack.
“Our founding vision at Click Security was to combine innovative security detection technology with advanced managed security solutions,” said Marc Willibeek-LeMair, chairman and founder of Click Security. “We are excited to be joining the industry leader in Security-as-a-Service solutions for the cloud, and to continue pursuing our original mission on a larger and faster-growing platform.”
