Rackspace has selected Armour to deliver best-in-class security to protect its customers’ hybrid cloud environments.
Armor’s next-generation cloud security platform, Armor Anywhere, will be integrated into Rackspace’s portfolio of security services for all major private and hyperscale public clouds.
Armor Anywhere is made up of multiple detection tools that can be deployed into a customer’s IT environment via a lightweight software component. The platform collects, correlates and analyses millions of events and logs from various network and cloud native tools to produce enriched, correlated event data, which is ready for triage and action from Rackspace’s security experts.
“To handle threats effectively, enterprises need a platform that consolidates threat intelligence, security analytics, alerts and response,” said Vikas Gurugunti, EVP and GM, Rackspace Solutions and Services. “Rackspace’s security services, coupled with the powerful detection and analysis capabilities of Armor Anywhere, will give our customers a high-quality security solution focused on hybrid cloud security outcomes. This new collaboration ensures that we accelerate the value of the cloud and deliver Fanatical Experience™ during every phase of our customers’ digital transformation.”
“Armor is honoured to be working with Rackspace,” said Armor CEO, Mark Woodward. “Rackspace goes beyond simply helping organisations manage their IT infrastructure and migration to the cloud. They are a proven leader in helping customers securely transform their entire organisation across every phase of their digital journey. Armor’s market-leading cloud security solutions have successfully helped to protect organisations’ sensitive data for 10 years. Our security solutions are proven, well tested and highly capable. By working together, I am confident that Rackspace will have the most comprehensive, secure and business-enabling managed cloud security services in the market.”
The integration of Armor’s technology and capabilities into Rackspace’s security service offerings will be made available to customers in 2020.
