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.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Through WebRTC, audio and video communications are being embedded more easily than ever into applications, helping carriers, enterprises and independent software vendors deliver greater functionality to their end users. With today’s business world increasingly focused on outcomes, users’ growing calls for ease of use, and businesses craving smarter, tighter integration, what’s the next step in delivering a richer, more immersive experience? That richer, more fully integrated experience comes about through a Communications Platform as a Service which allows for messaging, screen sharing, video...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks. The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of IoT applications and projects. Business operations, IT, and data scientists need advanced analytics t...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Akana has announced the availability of the new Akana Healthcare Solution.

Akana developed the Healthcare Solution in response to healthcare businesses that want to increase electronic, multi-device access to health records while reducing operating costs and complying with government regulations.
For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems, described how to revolutionize your archit...
MuleSoft has announced the findings of its 2015 Connectivity Benchmark Report on the adoption and business impact of APIs. The findings suggest traditional businesses are quickly evolving into "composable enterprises" built out of hundreds of connected software services, applications and devices. Most are embracing the Internet of Things (IoT) and microservices technologies like Docker. A majority are integrating wearables, like smart watches, and more than half plan to generate revenue with APIs within the next year.
Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business. Career Hacks can help Geek Girls and those who support them (yes, that's you too, Dad!) to excel in this typically male-dominated world.
