Salt Lake City, UT, June 26: Lightstream, a global leader in cloud technology solutions, network integration and managed-network services, today announced a strategic partnership with Armor to expand its managed security offering using Armor’s advanced cloud and on-premise security-as-a-service solutions. The joint offering provides customers with best-of-breed solutions and security outcomes that enable businesses to be proactive, meet stringent compliance demands and stay ahead of cyber threats in multicloud and on-premise environments.

Lightstream’s managed security offering provides comprehensive cloud security through a flexible mix of consulting, integration and managed services. Built to support secure cloud deployments on major platforms such as AWS and Azure, the offering uses a proven methodology that ensures cybersecurity, risk and compliance requirements are incorporated into a customer’s architecture and company culture, and utilized through the lifecycle and dynamics of their cloud deployment.

Armor strengthens this offering by including 24/7/365 access to their Security Operations Center (SOC) team, in addition to threat detection and response, security analytics and orchestration, and incident response and forensics. The partnership enables Lightstream to rapidly meet customers’ cybersecurity needs with a service bundle that also reduces Service Level Agreements (SLAs).

“We are seeing a significant shift in the market with the convergence of cloud and cybersecurity,” said Mark Woodard, Armor Chief Executive Officer. “As businesses move from hosting their data workloads on-premise to hosting them in the cloud or in hybrid environments, data security and compliance can become more challenging for organizations, as it requires a different security skill set. Our partnership with Lightstream helps bring a holistic approach to a company’s security program by providing these skills as part of a comprehensive pay-as-you-scale offering.”

“We are pleased to incorporate Armor’s extensive security services into our managed security offering,” said Jeff Collins, Chief Strategy Officer at Lightstream. “As more and more customers embrace a cloud-first strategy, companies must focus on building a solid foundation by uncovering the strategies, requirements and transformational elements that support a secure cloud environment. Lightstream and Armor makes this possible by pairing consultative security and integration services with best-of-breed technologies and real-time security protection that is unrivaled in the industry.”
