Quotes

Chris Drake, CEO | Armor
“FireHost continues to change the way to think about security. For too long organizations have been given the awesome burden to fend for themselves against cyber threats. Their only solution has been to purchase expensive security tools, then figure out how to integrate and manage them across their enterprise. FireHost Armor changes the paradigm by removing the security and management burden and applying it to a world-class cloud platform — Azure.”

Max Longin, Founder | RevenueWell
“We’ll forever understand and respect the sensitivity of ePHI and other critical healthcare data. For those critical data types, a security-enhanced, HIPAA-compliant cloud is always the answer. As RevenueWell evolved its cloud strategy, we understood that not all data is equal and we could realize tremendous business efficiencies by protecting other sensitive data with FireHost Armor.”

Nicole Herskowitz, Senior Director of Product Marketing | Microsoft Azure
“The ability to add proven layers of security and management — from a reputable cloud security company like FireHost — opens new doors for organizations as they build effective multi-cloud strategies. We are excited that FireHost is now available in the Azure Marketplace.”
