ARMOR THROUGH THE YEARS

Our journey to becoming the first Totally Secure cloud company began with our founding in 2009 as FireHost. Identifying a clear lack of security tools and practices in the hosting market, we introduced a secure cloud environment defended by multiple layers of security technologies. This solution helped organizations safely host their sensitive and regulated data. Then in 2015, we took those same security layers and processes and adapted them for use on other cloud environments – including public cloud infrastructures.

And the best part is, we’re only getting started.

Our solutions continue to evolve. However, one thing will always remain the same: our complete and total commitment to helping prevent data breaches in the cloud.

Setting a standard means standing by it – we’re proof of that.
