Cloud operations pioneer Logicworks announced that it has achieved AWS Level 1 Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP Competency) status. As the industry’s leading cloud MSP, Logicworks has had a significant edge in helping customers meet security and governance standards on AWS. The AWS MSSP designation recognizes that Logicworks successfully met Amazon Web Services’ requirements for a baseline of managed security services to protect and monitor essential AWS resources 24/7, known as Level 1 Managed Security Services. The company differentiates its place among AWS MSSP L1 partners with the specialization in Modern Compute Security. This added classification highlights partners ability to provide managed container workload security event monitoring and response running on AWS.
Logicworks uniquely combines deep AWS experience with its Cloud Reliability Platform to enable customers to improve cloud operations, elevate security, and drive better performance at scale. The MSSP competency along with the AWS Qualified Software Vendor status validates the desire for customers to have more comprehensive expertise from consulting partners. “Architecting and enforcing high security standards and maintaining compliance postures in dynamic AWS environments is complex and expensive for customers to tackle on their own,” said Kenneth Ziegler, CEO at Logicworks. “This validation is further proof of the peace of mind that Logicworks delivers to customers in enabling compliant outcomes through integrated tooling, automation, and expertise.”
AWS introduced this new baseline standard for managed security services to help customers easily identify the partners that met the competency requirements across six security domains: vulnerability management, cloud security best practices and compliance, threat detection and response, network security, host and endpoint security, and application security. In addition to covering these points, Logicworks also invests heavily in helping customers meet ongoing compliance mandates for HIPAA, HITRUST, PCI-DSS, SOC 1, SOC 2, & ISO-27001. “Maintaining high security on AWS is more than just checking a few boxes and partnering with a security software provider,” said Matthew Sharp, CISO at Logicworks. “Mitigating risk and elevating cloud security requires proactive management and ongoing diligence.”
