Cloud security company to conduct and sponsor educational roundtables

DALLAS and WASHINGTON, D.C. – July 9, 2017 – Armor, The First Totally Secure Cloud Company™, will sponsor several educational events with Microsoft executives and the International Association of Microsoft Channel Partners (IAMCP) at the upcoming Microsoft Inspire. In addition, a special security luncheon presentation, “Preparing for the Inevitable – Beyond WannaCry,” will be held to discuss best practices for protecting against ransomware.

Inspire commemorates the one-year anniversary of the launch of the Armor Guardian Partner Program. The program has since more than doubled in size based on market demand for Armor Anywhere a scalable, HIPAA and PCI compliant cloud security solution offering managed protection, detection, and 24/7/365 response for cloud platforms, including Azure. Armor Anywhere also helps users address the shared security responsibility model and provides advanced threat intelligence capabilities from a military-grade security operations center (SOC).
