Grazed from vArmour

vArmour, the leading data center and cloud security company providing application-aware micro-segmentation with advanced security analytics, today announced that Gartner has named the company a "Cool Vendor in Cloud and Emerging Technology Security, 2016." vArmour is honored to be included among five security ecosystem providers that offer innovative new technologies to address organizations' demand for agile, comprehensive and cost-effective security solutions to protect cloud and data center environments.

The Cool Vendors in Cloud and Emerging Technology Security, 2016 report by Gartner states, "Organizations are keen to explore the potential of cloud and IoT security technologies to help improve security operations, tackle fraud and raise threat awareness. Security and risk leaders need to fully engage with the latest technology trends if they are to realize policies that enable digital business opportunities while coping with hostile events. CISOs must drive the investigation of cloud security vendors who present new ideas and approaches, even if their solutions are not necessarily market-proven."

With IT rapidly evolving, organizations have embraced multi-cloud infrastructure and now expect all technical resources to be delivered in an easily consumed and cost-efficient model, including security. vArmour's flagship Distributed Security System (DSS) enables organizations to deploy application-aware micro-segmentation in less than 30 minutes with three simple steps to see, segment and secure their data wherever it resides.

DSS reduces attack surfaces by separating an organization's most sensitive assets (i.e. healthcare and financial records) and responding to real-time incidents. These easy-to-use security controls are integrated with vArmour's network, application and user analytics, so organizations can see and stop laterally moving attacks quicker and easier than ever before through a single, software-based system.

"It has been an amazing 18 months since we launched our company. We now have hundreds of customers adopting the vArmour Distributed Security System on a global scale, including some of the world's largest telecom companies, banks, healthcare, retailers and U.S. government agencies," said Tim Eades, vArmour CEO. "We believe Gartner's 'Cool Vendor' recognition further validates the positive impact and true value we're providing our customers. We're offering them the industry's simplest, integrated data center and cloud security solution to prevent, detect and remediate advanced persistent threats inside their network."
