Orca Security, XContent join forces to deliver comprehensive cloud security solution

Harnessing the power of Orca Security's innovation, XContent offers organisations a unified approach to manage cloud threats.

Johannesburg, 29 May 2023

XContent, which positions itself as a leading provider of cloud solutions, is thrilled to announce a strategic partnership with Orca Security, which it says is the frontrunner in cloud security innovation. As businesses increasingly adopt cloud infrastructure, their exposure to security risks expands in parallel, necessitating a comprehensive platform to address vulnerabilities, protect data and ensure compliance across their entire cloud environment.

Through this collaboration, XContent now empowers its customers to access comprehensive cloud security and compliance solutions with streamlined operations and reduced costs compared to traditional agent-based systems. Orca Security's platform can be effortlessly deployed within minutes, without the need for agents or disruption to live environments.

Orca Security offers a 100% agentless, full-stack, deep visibility into AWS, Azure and Google Cloud, all through a unified Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP). This eliminates the need for disjointed products for cloud workload and data protection, vulnerability management, compliance or cloud security posture management (CSPM). Orca Security seamlessly integrates these solutions into a cohesive platform.

"Through our partnership with Orca Security, we are excited to provide our customers with an enhanced cloud security and compliance platform," stated Corne du Preez, Cloud Practice Lead at XContent. "By leveraging Orca Security's innovative technology, we can address the evolving security challenges faced by organisations in the cloud environment."

Orca Security Score assessment opportunity

To commemorate the launch of this collaboration, XContent is offering a complimentary Orca Security Score assessment, enabling organisations to evaluate their cloud security posture and identify areas of vulnerability. This assessment will analyse unsecured data, detect suspicious activity, identify vulnerable assets, evaluate organisational responsiveness and assess authentication configurations.

"At Orca Security, we view our customers' cloud infrastructure as an interconnected web of assets that require understanding and protection," said Avi Shua, co-founder and CEO of Orca Security. "That is why we provide a single pane of glass to uncover all cloud vulnerabilities, maintain compliance and understand which combinations of threats and attack paths pose the greatest business risk. We are excited to have XContent partnering with us to bring the benefits of our comprehensive cloud security and compliance platform to businesses in need."
