Visualize Health Selects Armor to Provide Advanced Cyber Security for Mission Critical AWS Workloads

December 19, 2017

DALLAS – Dec. 19, 2017 – Over 5 million healthcare records have been exposed through data breaches in 2017[1], ranking the industry second on a growing list of targets. Visualize Health, LLC, a healthcare analytics company, announced today that they have selected Armor, a cloud security service provider, to ensure the safety of patient information residing in AWS workloads.

“We realized quickly the benefit from the flexibility and scalability of the public cloud. As we were planning our migration, however, we felt as if we would be entering the Wild West and knew we needed the experience of a proven cloud security provider,” said David Andrews, Visualize Health Chief Technology Officer. “In addition to the confidence our clients now feel as we’ve increased security measures, the deployment of Armor security services is agile and seamless, allowing us to manage and scale our cloud servers at the speed of business. We are now free to focus our efforts on delivering our services to our customers as quickly and proficiently as possible.”

While electronic healthcare records have been proven to increase efficiencies and better coordinate patient care, handling the highly sensitive information within them comes with the heavy burden of ensuring the confidentiality and security of patient information is kept. Organizations who violate the rules and regulations set forth to ensure patient data are met with stiff fines and penalties that can quickly range in the millions.

“In addition to navigating the cloud, legal, regulatory and industry requirements for handling such sensitive information can make adherence feel like an organization is walking a gauntlet and it can be overwhelming at times,” said Chris Drake, founder and CEO, Armor. “Armor was created in the cloud and with that comes the ability to help organizations take advantage of its offerings while simultaneously benefiting from the security of an elite team of experienced cyber security experts defending their environment around the clock.”

Armor delivers 24/7/365 managed cloud security with a return on investment of 286%. With 1,200+ customers in 42 countries, Armor provides managed protection and detection for on-premise, hybrid and public cloud platforms, including Azure and AWS.
