Tech Data has formed a partnership with global cloud security and compliance company Armor. The new partnership looks to strengthen to Tech Data’s security portfolio and present partners with the opportunity to offer all-round protection for customers across multiple public cloud platforms.
Tech Data’s partner community and customers will now have access to Armor’s SaaS solutions, all of which are available on a consumption-basis. Armor is used by organisations that are adopting multi-cloud strategies and can be complemented by adjacent technologies including on-premises infrastructure and IoT.
Alison Nixon (pictured), business unit director for security at Tech Data, UK, said, “Our partnership with Armor means the Tech Data security practice is even better-equipped to support our entire partner ecosystem, including VARs, cloud aggregators, and MSPs in providing completely secure multi-cloud environments for their customers. We can offer all the skills, resources and solutions partners require to give their customers peace-of-mind and we are ready to work with Armor, to support them in taking this industry-leading solution to market.”
“Armor will data keep it safe wherever it resides,” added Mark Woodward, CEO, Armor. “Using Armor, organisations are able to cut their security technology costs and meet compliance mandates at a fraction of the cost of many competing solutions. While we have an established presence in the UK, this is the first time Armor has been made available via distribution in the region.”
