Partnership makes it fast, easy, and cost effective for BlueFort’s customers to address the critical security issues in their AWS, Azure, and GCP estates
BlueFort Security, the UK’s leading provider of cybersecurity solutions, has announced a partnership agreement with Orca Security, the cloud security innovation leader. Founded in 2019, Orca Security built the first cloud security solution that can find vulnerabilities, malware, misconfigurations, weak passwords, lateral movement risk and high-risk data without agents or per asset integrations – all in minutes.
According to Mordor Intelligence, the overall cloud security industry will grow to a market valuation of $37 billion by 2026, as more and more businesses shift activities to the cloud.
Orca Security provides cloud-wide, workload-deep, context-aware security and compliance for GCP, AWS and Azure – without the organisational friction, high TCO, and performance impact of agents.
Orca Security will also become a core value-add offering within BlueFort Evolve, a cyber security support membership program which provides clients with access to a suite of on-demand cyber security tools, perks and benefits to maximise their cyber security posture.
Andrew Bartlam, vice president of EMEA at Orca Security, said: “We are excited to partner with BlueFort to create a powerful new combination in the market. BlueFort’s cybersecurity and cloud expertise, delivery capabilities and market reputation are highly complementary to how the Orca Security team works and align well with our partner-focused strategy. As Orca Security continues to rapidly grow, this partnership will help new clients gain our industry leading agentless cloud security capabilities through resell and a managed service environment provided by Bluefort.”
Dave Henderson, CEO Sales & Marketing at BlueFort Security said: “The vast majority of an organisation’s assets, and security issues, are now in the cloud. This requires a major rethink of how IT security teams monitor for vulnerabilities. Orca’s platform provides 100 percent coverage of all cloud assets, and automatic prioritisation of the alerts that demand quick action. It is quickly becoming the must-have solution for cloud security.”
