SINGAPORE, Nov 17, 2021 – (JCN Newswire) – Horangi, a Singapore-headquartered cybersecurity company which provides solutions optimised for cloud-based organisations, and leading cloud service provider, Huawei Cloud, today announced a partnership aimed at providing cloud security solutions for organisations on the cloud platform in Asia Pacific (APAC).

Both companies will collaborate to establish best-in-class security guardrails and cloud visibility for organizations that use not only Huawei Cloud, but also multi-cloud environments. The partnership will include the provision of cloud security solutions for Huawei Cloud powered with Warden, Horangi’s flagship Cloud Security Posture Management application (CSPM). Warden’s infrastructure security rules and delivery of Identity and Access Management best practices, as well as threat detection capabilities, can greatly improve the cyber-risk posture for organisations using Huawei Cloud. Warden is also the only cloud security solution capable of providing compliance automation for both Asia-specific standards such as MAS TRM, BNM-RMiT, or OJK regulations, and international standards such as SOC 2, ISO 27001, and PCI DSS. Warden is constantly being updated to include support for new standards such as the PDPA in Thailand.
Demand for secure cloud platforms has proliferated among organisations in APAC as they mature in their usage of the cloud. CSPM tools such as Warden allow IT leaders to identify and fix security flaws early on, thereby increasing resilience and business continuity for digital organizations.
Paul Hadjy, CEO and Co-Founder at Horangi commented on the partnership, “It is an honour for Horangi to be selected as one of the first security vendors in Southeast Asia to support a major cloud service provider like Huawei Cloud, reaffirming the strength and market leading position of Warden. Horangi has shown great promise in its delivery Cloud innovations to organizations across Asia Pacific over the period that Huawei Cloud has been operating in this region. We are pleased to partner with a partner who recognizes cybersecurity as a crucial endeavor in today’s digital-first environment. We are also proud to play a key role in facilitating Cloud adoption in the region with Huawei Cloud. “
“Warden’s proven track record in Asia Pacific and unique ability to consistently meet security requirements in a manner compliant with regional regulations was key in Horangi’s selection as one of the preferred security partners for Huawei Cloud. A strong security offering is crucial for organisations to grow. “We look forward to working with Horangi in providing a secure cloud platform that is comprehensive and accessible to all customers, especially as the demand for Huawei Cloud innovations grows,” said Nicole Lu, Vice President, Huawei Cloud APAC Ecosystem.
The partnership continues strong growth momentum registered by Horangi and Huawei Cloud in 2021 that testifies to their market leading capabilities in their respective fields. Huawei Cloud was ranked in a Gartner report as the fastest growing mainstream Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) vendor globally in terms of revenue, as well the fourth largest vendor in emerging Asia Pacific by market share. In the Gartner’s latest report on Emerging Trends and Technologies: Security, Horangi was featured as a Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management vendor (CIEM). Horangi was recently named a launch partnership for the SG Cyber Safe Partnership Programme. This programme works in conjunction with the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore to increase cybersecurity awareness and adoption within the city-state.
Across APAC, organisations are increasingly turning to the cloud as the basis of their digitalisation efforts, with the technology perceived as a key enabler of scalability, resilience, business continuity and cost efficiency. Research by BCG and Cisco has forecasted APAC to lead the world in cloud adoption, with the region’s cloud spending forecasted to reach US$200 billion by 2024. According to IBM Security, cloud security breaches are still a major problem. CSPM applications are therefore vital today.
Horangi’s Warden is scheduled for launch on Huawei Cloud on 29 October 2021, and will be open to all organisations on the cloud platform in APAC. For more information, please visit www.horangi.com/products/warden.
