The collaboration marries STT Connect’s highly secure, enterprise-grade
private cloud infrastructure with Armor’s world-class managed security
tools to support enterprises’ need for agility while protecting their

SS 584 Level 3, the two companies will deliver a fully integrated and
managed security service with end-to-end protection and 24/7/365

“Cloud has become a crucial step for both government institutions and
enterprises alike towards harnessing latest technologies like Big Data
and the Internet of Things (IoT) to better serve their customers. By
offering Armor solutions, we can comprehensively address their concerns
on cybersecurity and privacy as they quickly move to the cloud,” said
David Robinson, Chief Technology Officer, STT Connect. “We look forward
to collaborating with Armor to protect highly sought after sensitive
data and meet increasingly complex compliance requirements.”

“The cyber security industry has lost its way,” said Chris Drake,
founder and CEO, Armor. “In a rush to commoditise self-service security
tools, the industry has forgotten that experienced talent and
intelligent processes, not technology alone, makes you secure. Threat
actors know this and thus have exploited this widening talent gap for
record-breaking profits. Armor provides the security technology stack,
processes and talent that delivers this unique service to protect
clients. By partnering with STT Connect, we have an exciting opportunity
to jointly spread the message of Armor’s effective security globally. We
see this as a vote of confidence from our mutual investor ST Telemedia
and look forward to expanding our global distribution channel.”

STT Connect secures underlying physical infrastructures and platforms
while providing customer guidance on how best to use features of the
cloud platform to secure infrastructure. The company’s cloud platform is
hosted in ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (STT GDC)’s Tier 3
facilities, and integrates some of the industry’s best technologies from
Red Hat, Big Switch and Dell EMC.

Armor’s flexible and proprietary cloud security platform integrates
threat intelligence, automated security orchestration and machine
learning while delivering the industry’s shortest average dwell time of
less than one day to its 1,200 customers in over 40 countries. One of
only eight vendors to achieve AWS Security Competency status, Armor
helps fulfill the shared security responsibilities required by private
and public cloud platforms including AWS and Azure.

Both companies are part of investor ST Telemedia’s portfolio, which
consists of distinct and complementary communications, media and
technology businesses across the globe.
