Gartner Names Armor5 a 2014 Cool Vendor in Application and Endpoint Security

Armor5 Recognized for Being Innovative, Impactful and Intriguing for Its 'Zero-Touch Cloud Security'

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/14 -- Armor5, creator of Zero-Touch Cloud Security, has been named a Cool Vendor in the Gartner "Cool Vendors in Application and Endpoint Security, 2014" report. The report highlights vendors that offer application and endpoint security products and services that stand out based on real-world workability, capabilities and viability, as well as technological innovation.

Armor5 uniquely protects enterprises from data leakage, compliance exposures and privacy breaches during the 'last mile' connection between the cloud and the device, when employees and contractors access cloud services. The service dynamically creates a secure cloud session isolating the content and applications in the cloud without requiring installs or configurations on the device or within the enterprise DMZ.

"We are honored to be identified by Gartner as a 2014 Cool Vendor in Application and Endpoint Security," said Suresh Balasubramanian, CEO of Armor5. "We believe Gartner's recognition is further validation of our innovative approach to protect cloud services by moving the security function from the endpoint to the cloud, while preserving the user experience."

Armor5 service instantly protects thousands of cloud services, and enterprise applications and delivers real-time analytics, detailed activity monitoring and instant alerting that helps CIOs and CISOs ensure compliance while encouraging the rapid adoption of cloud services within their enterprise.

Key features of the Armor5 service include:

  • Delivers Last Mile Security - Instantly prevents data leakage from any cloud service by providing a highly secure on-demand cloud security layer which leaves zero data on the device and no cached data.

  • Extends Policies to the Cloud - Role-based policy controls can be instantly extended from a corporate active directory server to control access to 1,000s of public or private cloud services.

  • Aggregates Cross-Cloud Analytics - Presents a comprehensive view into cloud service usage across multiple public and private cloud services including individual session duration, most frequently used services etc.

  • Protects Employee Privacy - The service is only 'on' when users access corporate apps and data, relieving enterprises of privacy exposure during personal use. Corporations can also avoid privacy breaches resulting from remote wipes, which are unnecessary with Armor5 since data is not resident or cached on the device.

  • Preserves the User Experience - Works with any internet-enabled device using a standard browser, without installs or configuration changes on the device or enterprise DMZ, while operating at a zero performance deficit.
