Cybersecurity startup Code-X, which launched last year in St. Petersburg, is partnering with Amazon Web Services. 

Code-X is a data security firm focused on working 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) Accelerate Program, Code-X will bring its propriety five-dimensional security solution to Amazon’s systems and communications ecosystem, which will manage and monitor data and systems in real-time.

“It is time organizations can once again trust their systems and focus on the business at hand. The focused co-selling support we receive through the AWS ISV Accelerate Program allows us to extend our sales reach dramatically and efficiently,” Code-X CEO Darren LaCroix said in a news release. “By utilizing AWS sales teams, we’re not only casting a wider net but also targeting an ideal audience of customers that are already utilizing AWS solutions and services across all verticals.”

The partnership will support AWS warfighters and national security customers, especially at the point 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 block-level control and the ability to detect tamper or theft in real-time. The Code-X platform also provides real-time audit logging, user management, alert and alarm systems, and instantaneous forensics, according to Code-X.

The partnership formed after Code-X completed a $5 million Series A funding round last year, which was led by Virginia-based By Light Professional IT Services LLC with participation from South Florida-based fama Ventures.
