DataSolutions, the specialised distributor of innovative IT and security solutions, today announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with Orca Security, the cloud security innovation leader, for the UK and Ireland.
Equipped with major investment, Orca Security has chosen DataSolutions to help expand its technology use in the UK and Irish markets. With 1,000 percent year-over-year sales growth, Orca Security has become one of the fastest cybersecurity companies to achieve a $1 billion valuation. With support from DataSolutions, Orca Security will expand its customer base in the UK and Irish markets, while also growing its workforce in the region.
Orca Security’s public cloud security solution is an industry-first technology that provides 100 percent full-stack visibility into AWS, Azure and GCP. It deploys in minutes to identify vulnerabilities, malware, misconfigurations, lateral movement risk, leaked passwords and other security risks for organisations without using agents or network scanners, while providing granular contextualisation of the alerts that matter most to the enterprise.
Orca Security is founded on the belief that enterprises shouldn’t have to buy separate tools to detect vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, authentication and identity access management (IAM) risks and more. That is why the company has created a market leading solution that detects all key security risks across public cloud environments. For organisations reviewing their cloud security solutions, Orca Security is offering personalised 1-2-1 demos to demonstrate its capabilities. These 1-2-1s can be scheduled here.
The signing of Orca Security adds to DataSolutions’ growing security division and joins the likes of Ordr and ColorTokens. DataSolutions’ security division grew significantly in 2020, with revenue increasing by €7.5 million compared to the previous year.
Avi Shua, Chief Executive Officer, Orca Security said: “In analysing the overall state of the cloud security market, organisations couldn’t find a comprehensive option. There was a collection of disorganised, disjointed, and disparate visibility solutions – but no solution had the breadth and depth to see everything in their cloud environment and provide the context required to address two major challenges: security and visibility. Our approach addresses these challenges in one solution.”
“After gaining international traction, we are now focussing on the UK and Ireland, and we are excited to partner with DataSolutions for their key role in continuing our upward growth trajectory in the region,” added Shua.
Michael O’Hara, Managing Director, DataSolutions, said: “Orca Security represents a revolutionary step forward in optimising cloud environments. We’re thrilled to join Orca Security on their journey to reinvent cloud security and are delighted to have been appointed a distributor for the UK and Ireland. With our security knowledge and the expertise we have from working with our growing security sector portfolio, we believe Orca Security can have a real impact.”
DataSolutions offers partner resellers focused on the opportunities to supply end user businesses with the best in IT Security, Networking, Intelligent Workspace and Hybrid Multi-Cloud solutions. DataSolutions’ growing portfolio of security vendors and its commitment to customer service has seen the company significantly expand its customer base. Also driving this cybersecurity division growth are the company’s innovative customer initiatives which are helping to educate the market and drive awareness of new cybersecurity concepts and technologies.
