Reading, UK – May 31, 2018 – Pulsant, a leading UK provider of hybrid cloud solutions, has joined forces with Armor, a top provider of threat prevention and response services for private, hybrid, and public cloud environments. Combining Pulsant Protect— a comprehensive solution that covers the entire organisation, from people and networks to cloud infrastructure and applications—-with Armor’s extensive portfolio of security services will ensure that each customer’s valuable data is protected from current and emerging cyber threats, whilst enabling the organisations to meet their GDPR requirements.
With the Pulsant + Armor partnership, customers can turn up full-stack security for their cloud workloads in two minutes or less, whilst complying with regulatory mandates including GDPR, PCI, and more. Armor blocks 99.999% of cyber threats and provides customers with 24/7/365 threat monitoring and instant access to its team of on-demand security experts.
Martin Lipka, Enterprise Business Manager, Pulsant, says: “We’ve always been impressed with what Armor has been able to achieve in the cybersecurity space, and so it’s great to be working so closely with them to bring these capabilities into our own security solutions. Through this partnership, we’ll be able to offer our customers an even better range of solutions.”
Armor’s compliance with a range of regulations further strengthens Pulsant’s own compliance service, leveraging the same operational analytics for intelligent security monitoring as well as continuous alignment to regulatory frameworks. Lipka continues: “This is an important benefit that we can deliver to our customers alongside Armor. By using the same deep monitoring and analysis of their physical, virtual, and cloud infrastructures, we can keep their infrastructures secure whilst demonstrating to auditors and regulators that they are, in conjunction with their own best practices, complying with applicable regulations.”
Chris Drake, Founder and CEO, Armor, says: “After spending a lot of time with the leadership and people of Pulsant, it was clear to me that Pulsant shared our same core values to guide and protect customers as they evolve their organisations. With that, Armor is extremely honoured to be partnering with Pulsant. Working hand in hand, Pulsant and Armor will provide organisations with the robust, real-time protections needed to defend against the ever-changing cyber threat landscape, while enabling organisations to meet and exceed their compliance requirements.”
