NCSS Welcomes Armor!
The NCSS UNT site welcomes Armor (formerly FireHost) to its growing list of industry sponsors. Armor is a leader in secure cloud hosting, capable of protecting sensitive data and brand reputations of the world's enterprises. With an infrastructure built for security, compliance, performance, and service, companies choose Armor to help de-risk collection, storage, and transmission of payment card and healthcare data.
Dr. Chase Cunningham, Threat Intelligence Lead at Armor, explained Armor's reasons for joining the NCSS I/UCRC:
“In the cybersecurity arena, we face a shortage of hundreds of thousands of security professionals. We need to help usher in the next generation of security practitioners who will protect people, businesses, and national infrastructure. This requires a better pipeline from universities to security organizations. At Armor, we are helping to develop and partner with this next generation of security innovators, many of whom are right here in our back yard at UNT. By partnering with UNT, Armor is helping young pioneers create next-generation cloud security technologies. We expect this relationship to make an increasingly strategic impact on the growing tech industry in DFW as well as globally."
Congratulations to Mr. Tawfiq Shaw of UNT on accepting a position of employment with Armor effective June 1, 2015, and to Mr. Srujan Kotikela, UNT PhD Student, on his Summer Internship with Armor.
