DALLAS—June 26, 2019 – Armor®, a leading global cloud security-as-a-service provider, announces the evolution of its Global Partner Program, designed to enable new services and revenue opportunities for channel partners in the rapidly growing cloud security market. Armor’s program now offers broader access to cloud security solutions, integrations, training and certifications to ensure trust, improve productivity and establish reliability for participating partners and their customers.
As organizations move to a multi-cloud, hybrid-cloud world, Armor is investing heavily in its technology alliance and channel partner ecosystem. The company provides best-of-breed solutions and security outcomes that enable businesses to be proactive, meet stringent compliance demands, and stay ahead of cyber threats in on-premise, private, hybrid or public cloud environments.
Aligned with new cloud and marketplace consumption models and shared responsibility, Armor’s Global Partner Program supports partners seeking to establish themselves as cloud security and compliance experts. The program offers a predictable investment model, provides rewards for partner investments, and features an enhanced partner portal.
The partner portal includes:
- Lead registration
- Sales and technical support
- Joint marketing activities
- Promotions and training
Additionally, through the program, partners receive 24/7/365 access to Armor’s Security Operations Center (SOC) team and a host of new services to address clients’ cloud security needs.
“We are seeing a significant shift in the market with the convergence of cloud and cybersecurity,” said Mark Woodward, Armor’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our partners are quickly responding by changing their business models, evolving into providers of cloud, security and managed services. However, data security and compliance in the cloud is challenging because it requires a different skillset than security on-premise. Armor provides our partners with the expertise to deliver the right solutions for their clients.”
“Armor is the bridge between cloud service providers like AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform and partners who have been tasked with guiding their clients on their cloud migration journeys,” said Doug Heestand, Co-founder at Privo. “Armor’s partner program offerings make it easy for companies like ours to integrate and automate security and compliance for our clients.”
“We are excited to join Armor’s partner ecosystem to provide cloud security solutions to our clients’ application, security and DevOps teams,” said Jeff Collins, Chief Strategy Officer at Lightstream. “The advanced cloud and on-premise security services Armor provides helps us better support our clients as they migrate to the cloud, ensuring a security-first approach. Through Armor’s Global Partner Program, we also have a significant opportunity to increase our margins and reduce license complexities.”
