Armor Cloud Security Adds AWS, Microsoft Partners, Expands Globally


Armor, a cybersecurity services provider that offers managed multi-layer protection for public and private clouds, has added channel partners with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure competencies to its Guardian Partner Program.

The following companies now leverage the Guardian Partner Program to deliver cloud security solutions:

  • Auxilion: Microsoft Azure specialist that helps corporate, public sector and enterprise clients transition to the cloud.
  • Integration Partners: Managed service provider (MSP) that offers cloud, security and other IT services.
  • Lucrodyne: AWS consultant, reseller and public sector partner that supports small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) in the Greater Toronto area.
  • Maureen Data Systems: Microsoft SMB-focused reseller partner that helps organizations identify and resolve IT issues.
  • R3solv: Technology solutions provider that helps organizations embrace the hybrid cloud, mobilize their workforces and optimize on-premise IT infrastructure.
  • Webellian: IT and digital services company and AWS commercial reseller partner that offers cloud, mobile and web solutions.

The new partners will help Armor extend its presence in Canada and Europe, CEO Chris Drake said in a prepared statement. Also, these partners could help Armor speed up its channel growth.

Guardian Partner Program: Here's What You Need to Know

The Guardian Partner Program enables MSPs, technology resellers and other channel partners to deliver Armor cloud security solutions. It also offers access to Armor marketing, sales and technical support, enabling partners to capitalize on the rising demand for cloud security.

Guardian partners can advise, migrate and manage customer applications in the cloud, Drake said. As such, Guardian partners can simultaneously help customers reduce cloud security and compliance risks.

The Guardian Partner Program has helped Armor increase its channel revenue by 400 percent over the past 12 months, Drake stated. Meanwhile, Armor continues to explore ways to further extend its channel reach, which is reflected in some of the company's recent moves.

Armor last month integrated the Amazon GuardDuty intelligent threat detection solution into its Spartan threat detection and response platform. The integration now empowers Spartan users with continuous threat hunting, virtual chief information security officer (CISO) and other intelligent threat detection capabilities, according to a prepared statement.

Moreover, Armor last month announced a partnership with Cloudticity, an MSP for the healthcare and medical sector. The partnership enables Cloudticity to deliver cloud security protection for organizations whose workloads reside in AWS and are required to meet HIPAA and HITRUST compliance standards.

Armor delivers continuous security monitoring, protection, response and compliance for cloud workloads and hybrid IT. In addition, Armor helps organizations return 286 percent on their cloud security investments, the company indicated.
