vArmour and DarkMatter Jointly Announce Strategic Partnership to Expand Data Center and Cloud Security Leadership in the Middle East

Partnership Will Provide Joint Customers With Unique Software-Based Segmentation and Micro-Segmentation to Securely Protect Virtual and Cloud Environments

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 17, 2016) - vArmour, the leading data center and cloud security company, and DarkMatter, an international cybersecurity firm headquartered in the United Arab Emirates, today jointly announced a partnership arrangement to offer joint customers end-to-end cyber security solutions.

DarkMatter will enhance customer data center and cloud security environments through its newly formed partnership with vArmour by offering best-of-breed data solutions that protect against cyber threats by providing incident response that incorporates advanced security analytics and automated cyber attack containment.

DarkMatter's approach to increased cyber resiliency across its customers' networks will draw on vArmour's Distributed Security System (DSS) technology that helps organizations gain application-layer visibility and control of their network, applications and users to prevent, detect and respond to cyber attacks and breaches in data center and cloud environments.

In today's increasingly digitized enterprise landscape, organizations across the Middle East region and globally are making critical decisions and driving processes based heavily on virtual and cloud-based IT environments.

Commenting on the partnership, Faisal Al Bannai, Chief Executive Officer of DarkMatter, said, "As enterprises increasingly migrate to the cloud, we look to identify technology partners with whom we can collaborate to help guide our customers when making critical decisions and executing cloud-driven processes. As a result of our partnership with vArmour, DarkMatter will expand its suite of innovative joint solutions to protect sensitive data and critical infrastructure, both today and into the future."

Moving forward, the two companies will continue to invest in joint offerings to provide solutions around:

  • Policy-based enhanced security screening/modules with advanced analytics tuned to the GCC market.
  • Unified security fabric delivering consistent security and segmentation for virtual workloads regardless of location across private clouds and public clouds.
  • Custom cybersecurity stacks that can be rapidly deployed to protect sensitive data through the security lifecycle from before, during and after an attack.

"vArmour continues to observe a paradigm shift in the way organizations invest, adopt and deploy operationally efficient technologies, like the cloud and hyper-converged infrastructures," said Tim Eades, CEO, vArmour. "In working with leading global security providers like DarkMatter, our resulting partnership will bring forth best-of-breed segmentation and micro-segmentation technology, along with advanced security analytics to combat targeted attacks. As a result, joint customers will be able to dynamically and automatically respond to and contain threats across both public and private cloud environments."
