Singapore, 19 December, 2022 - Horangi, a leading cloud security solutions and services firm based in Singapore, announced today that its flagship cloud security platform, Warden, was recently named a ‘Leader’ in the G2 Winter 2023 Grid Report for Cloud Security and ‘High Performer’ in Cloud Data Security and Cloud Compliance while bagging a total of other 11 badges. Horangi also earned the 'Momentum Leader' badge in this report, something that is only given to companies with great YoY growth.
G2 is the world's largest tech marketplace aggregating authentic peer-to-peer reviews serving over 60 million people. The products in the ‘Leaders’ quadrant are rated highly by G2 users and have substantial Market Presence scores, which saw Warden rank as the top Cloud Security Software provider across feature-related metrics such as ‘Ease of Doing Business With’, ‘Best Estimated ROI’, and ‘Best Support’.
Warden is a human-centric all-in-one multi-cloud security tool with a unified platform for CSPM, CIEM, Threat Detection, and Vulnerability Management. It supports the 5 largest cloud security providers - Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Microsoft Azure, Alibaba Cloud, and Huawei Cloud.
“As cloud security continues to be a top concern for organizations going into 2023, we continue to stand with our customers and partners to identify significant trends that can empower their cloud security posture and enable them to innovate without fear. The G2 Winter 2023 Grid Reports is a testament to the excellence that we strive to deliver and a reminder to continue building cyber resilience for multi-cloud environments.” said Paul Hadjy, CEO and Co-founder of Horangi.
In a recent report by Horangi, it was found that more than half of the organizations in ASEAN indicate that they detect a verifiable threat to their cloud infrastructure at least once a month or more frequently. On average, one cloud misconfiguration is identified every 20 seconds, revealing how the state of the cloud is always in flux. Such misconfigurations are low-hanging fruit for threat actors to illegally access sensitive assets and perform a variety of malicious actions, including but not limited to exfiltrating and selling the data, encrypting your data then extorting a ransom to decrypt the data, and even gaining a foothold in your cloud infrastructure then escalating access rights to move laterally and vertically to gain access to other data stored in your cloud infrastructure.
Every minute cloud infrastructure remains unsecured is another minute for nefarious actors to launch an attack against cloud data. The only viable option is to automate asset monitoring, threat detection, and identity monitoring with a Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) tool like Warden.
“I find other companies in this space very invasive. You have to give them permission to do everything in your account then you get these compliance checks, detection, or monitoring. On the other hand, one of the key advantages of Warden is the small footprint. Warden follows security best practices in only requiring the minimum permissions to scan and secure your infrastructure. I really like the fact that I don’t have to worry about, ok, by doing this, what other things that I’m setting up that I’ve to worry about later on.” said Felix Cheung, Senior Vice President of Engineering at SafeGraph.
