In addition to supporting existing cloud data center locations in North America, Europe, and Australia, Orca Security today announced support of a cloud data center location in India, demonstrating our long-term commitment to support the cloud security needs of global organizations as well as our growing customer base in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. By adding support for this new data center, Orca can ensure optimal speed, availability, and support for APAC organizations and those with offices in the region, such as Australia, Singapore, India, Japan, Thailand, and New Zealand. 

According to a report by Research and Markets, the Asia Pacific cloud computing market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 15.6% during 2021-2027, growing from 90 billion USD in 2021 to 215 billion USD in 2027. “With the APAC region currently experiencing exponential growth in cloud adoption, we are taking this step to further deliver on our promise to make the most comprehensive cloud security platform available to organizations across the world”, said Avi Shua, CEO and co-founder of Orca Security. 

Continued Cloud Security Coverage and Support for Customers Across Asia

Earlier this year, Orca announced support for Alibaba Cloud, AWS China, and Azure China, the three biggest cloud providers in Asia-Pacific. Using our patented agentless SideScanning technology, the Orca Cloud Security Platform seamlessly connects to Alibaba Cloud, AWS China, and Azure China environments in minutes, providing complete coverage across all assets in the cloud environment. 

Orca provides a complete inventory of Alibaba Cloud assets

Orca’s comprehensive risk detection includes misconfigurations, vulnerabilities, identity risks, suspicious activity, API risks, and unsecured sensitive data. Since the Orca Cloud Security Platform was built as a single, comprehensive platform from the start, it possesses a holistic view of the environment and is able to effectively prioritize the risks that pose the greatest danger to the company’s crown jewels, empowering teams to focus on what actually matters.

Support for Asia-Pacific Compliance Regulations

In addition to global, US, and European cybersecurity compliance regulations, benchmarks, and best practices, Orca also includes compliance checks for APAC specific compliance frameworks, including New Zealand Institute of Safety Management (NZISM), Monetary Authority of Singapore Technology Risk Management (MASTRM), and Australian Government Information Security Manual (ISM).

About Orca Security

Orca Security is the industry-leading agentless Cloud Security Platform that identifies, prioritizes, and remediates risks and compliance issues across your cloud estate spanning AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Alibaba Cloud, and Kubernetes. Instead of layering multiple siloed tools together or deploying cumbersome agents, Orca delivers complete cloud security in a single platform by combining two revolutionary approaches: SideScanning, which enables frictionless and complete coverage without the need to maintain agents, and a Unified Data Model, which allows for centralized contextual analysis of your entire cloud estate.

Orca’s agentless platform connects to your environment in minutes and provides 100% visibility of all your assets, automatically including new assets as they are added. Orca detects and prioritizes cloud risks across every layer of your cloud estate, including vulnerabilities, malware, misconfigurations, lateral movement risk, weak and leaked passwords, and overly permissive identities.
