Cybersecurity startup Code-X, which launched last year in St. Petersburg, is teaming up with Amazon Web Services.
Code-X is a data security company that works with the Department of Defense, and AWS has many military customers who use its platform to process, store, and transmit DoD data.
With Code-X’s acceptance into the Amazon Web Services Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Accelerator Program, Code-X will bring its proprietary five-dimensional security solution to the IT systems and communications ecosystem. ‘Amazon, which will manage and monitor real-time data and systems. .
“It’s time for organizations to be able to trust their systems again and focus on the business at hand. The targeted co-selling support we receive through the AWS ISV Accelerate program allows us to dramatically and effectively expand our business reach,” Code-X CEO Darren LaCroix said in a press release. “By using AWS sales teams, we are not only expanding our network, but also targeting an ideal audience of customers who are already using AWS solutions and services across all verticals.
The partnership will support AWS warfighters and national security customers, especially at the time of data creation, AWS Sales Specialist Drew Morgan said in the release.
Code-X’s platform prevents data corruption or loss with a significant return on investment. These features provide customers with block-level control and the ability to detect a break-in or theft in real time. The Code-X platform also provides real-time audit logging, user management, alert and alarm systems, and instant forensics, according to Code-X.
