Most security-as-a-service providers deploy their proprietary infrastructure and tools into your environment. When this is a public cloud environment, you benefit from many of the cost and operating model advantages of cloud, but are locked into that provider's proprietary applications, and data formats – effectively holding your data and the investments you've made in creating and tuning content hostage.

The do-it-yourself approach allows you to pick the tools that best fit your needs (including cloud-native options that give you full ownership and control of your data and investments in automation and tuning, etc.), but at the expense of needing to connect and maintain everything yourself. MSPs are often reluctant to support these types of snowflake environments and there's very little community intelligence/support for your custom implementation.

Armor's solutions are designed to provide the best of both worlds, allowing you the cost and operational flexibility of a truly cloud-native approach that's based on open standards and industry-accepted best practices. Our solutions allow you to leverage community intelligence and support or rely on our expertise – and as your needs and your own capabilities evolve, our solutions are flexible to meet your needs (including full or partial in-sourcing).
