Within the hyperscale economy of the public cloud, companies are looking to achieve numerous business outcomes. Some of these outcomes include cost optimization, fast rates of deployment, service availability, and the security of mission critical assets. Because of the cloud’s ability to grow at a substantial scale due to elastic environments, some of these outcomes come naturally. Other outcomes, such as security, are achieved easier with the help of a vendor.
Security in the Cloud
Armor is a born in the cloud security solution that allows customers to secure their data across any environment: public cloud, private cloud, multi-cloud, or hybrid cloud without any hardware. Using best of breed tools and services, Armor complements the cloud’s native security services.
According to a Gartner report, it’s estimated that through 2020, public cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) workloads will suffer at least 60% fewer security incidents than those in traditional data centers. While inherent security controls and policies can provide a comprehensive defense in depth approach, the chain is only as strong as its weakest link – human error. Gartner also projects that by 2022, 99% of cloud security failures will be at the fault of customers.1
The exposure presented from a risk management perspective can be greatly diminished through not only effective continuous compliance solutions such as Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM), but by also driving a cohesive risk management platform. This platform is best delivered as the proverbial three legs of a stool; vendor provided security controls, partner delivered security outcomes, and the native security services baked into a Cloud Service Provider’s (CSP) infrastructure.
Armor’s Partner Program
This is why Armor is proud to align with CSPs, consulting partners, and managed services partners (MSP) as part of our enhanced global partner program. Together, we provide companies a comprehensive security strategy with expert management and incident response, significantly reducing the risk of both accidental and intentional data exposure in the cloud.
