DALLAS – Nov. 27, 2017 – With 325 reported breaches in 2017, the healthcare industry has once again proven to be a top target for threat actors. Armor, a cloud security service provider, has announced today it will partner with Cloudticity, a next-gen managed services provider for the medical and healthcare industry, to deliver additional cloud security protection for organizations whose workloads reside in Amazon Web Services (AWS) and are required to meet HIPAA and HITRUST compliance standards.
“Our clients trust us with their most highly sensitive and sought-after information, so security is constantly top-of-mind,” says Founder, CEO, CTO Gerry Miller, Cloudticity. “We were seeking a partner who would seamlessly enhance our own offerings, and by selecting Armor, we can now provide several additional security services along with the strength of its world-class security operations center. Together, we provide a flexible, scalable and automated security offering from two companies born within the cloud.”

“The healthcare industry is currently losing the cyber battle and can’t afford to remain complacent any longer,” said Chris Drake, founder and CEO, Armor. “Armor recognized a long time ago the potential of the cloud and how companies in all verticals would become dependent on it. We’ve harnessed its benefits, applied our relentless security methods and look forward to enhancing security in the cloud by combining our services.”
