Cloud hosting provider Rackspace has selected Armor to deliver cloud security solutions to Rackspace’s hybrid cloud customers worldwide. Armor’s cloud security platform, Armor Anywhere, will be integrated into Rackspace’s comprehensive portfolio of security services for all major private and hyperscale public clouds. The integration of Armor’s technology and capabilities into Rackspace’s security service offerings will be made available to customers in 2020.
Armor Anywhere is made up of multiple detection tools which are deployed into organizations’ IT environments via a “lightweight” software component. The platform collects, correlates and analyzes 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.”
