Fast-growing Secure Managed Cloud Provider Will Add To the Dell Cloud Services Partner Ecosystem – Includes Focus On Compliance-driven Customer Needs

Dallas, TX – February 4, 2015 – Secure cloud leader FireHost today announced it will be teaming with Dell Services to deliver secure, fully managed private cloud services to meet customers’ needs for secure, compliant private cloud environments.

The collaboration between the two companies comes at a time when data breaches show no signs of relenting. FireHost is a secure managed cloud provider that reduces risk for security- and compliance-sensitive companies by helping them protect data and exceed regulatory requirements. The fast-growing company, which more and more customers are turning to as a secure cloud alternative, provides single-tenant and multi-tenant solutions. By incorporating FireHost into the Dell Cloud Services ecosystem, both companies will extend and complement their secure, managed private cloud capabilities to better serve healthcare, government, and payments-oriented retail and financial industries.

Key Highlights

  • The single-tenant and multi-tenant solutions are managed on or off a customer’s premises.
  • Considerable cloud integration, maintenance, and support are offloaded from customers.
  • The secure managed cloud solutions are backed by 24-7 security expertise and support.
  • FireHost’s chief information security officer, chief security officer, security operations, and threat intelligence team are integral in delivering private cloud services as secure managed offerings – they protect customers, not just its own internal operations.
  • This opex-minded managed services model for private clouds is unique in the industry.
  • Because of its security specialization, FireHost was named the niche leader in Gartner’s 2014 Magic Quadrant for Cloud-Enabled Managed Hosting.
  • FireHost is specifically joining the Dell Cloud Onsite Service, which provides customizable SLAs to meet unique business needs, broad infrastructure choices to suit Windows and Linux workloads, and IT data center services to offload routine IT administration tasks.
  • Dell Cloud Onsite powered by FireHost is built on Dell infrastructure including the Dell PowerEdge FX2 converged architecture.
