Rackspace Selects Armor to Deliver Best-in-Class Security for Hybrid Cloud Environments

Rackspace today announced that it has selected Armor, a top global provider of cloud security-as-a-service solutions, to deliver best-in-class security for hybrid cloud environments to customers worldwide. Armor’s next-generation cloud security platform, Armor Anywhere, will be integrated into Rackspace’s comprehensive portfolio of security services for all major private and hyperscale public clouds, creating the most complete hybrid cloud security solution on the market.

Armor Anywhere is made up of multiple detection tools which are deployed into a customer’s IT environment via a lightweight software component. The platform collects, correlates and analyses millions of events and logs from various network and cloud native tools to produce enriched, correlated event data, which is ready for triage and action from Rackspace’s security experts.

“To handle threats effectively, enterprises need a platform that consolidates threat intelligence, security analytics, alerts and response,” said Vikas Gurugunti, EVP and GM, Rackspace Solutions and Services. “Rackspace’s security services, coupled with the powerful detection and analysis capabilities of Armor Anywhere, will give our customers a high-quality security solution focused on hybrid cloud security outcomes. This new collaboration ensures that we accelerate the value of the cloud and deliver Fanatical Experience™ during every phase of our customers’ digital transformation.”

Rackspace offers a comprehensive portfolio of security and compliance services for all major private and hyperscale public clouds – including 24x7x365 proactive threat detection and response services from Rackspace’s global Security Operations Centre (SOC), with locations in San Antonio and London. Rackspace integrates with all of the hyperscale cloud control planes to offer customers hybrid cloud security capabilities, including, but not limited to, host and network protection, threat intelligence and security analytics, log management, vulnerability scanning, and compliance assistance services.
