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 with HIPAA- and PCI-compliant cloud hosting. 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.
